Birdies was founded by two busy moms who were tired of hosting get-togethers in their homes while wearing frumpy slippers or going barefoot. And while the origin story is about making a comfortable, stylish slipper to wear around the house, customers decided they looked way too cute to stay indoors. Birdies shoes serve up a seven-layer dip of comfort technology, combining the support of sneakers with the softness of slippers and the styling of designer flats. The Starling and the Heron, both twists on the classic smoking slipper, are Nordstrom favorites and come in a range of lush fabrics and colors.
