About Birdies Birdies was founded by Bianca Gates and Marisa Sharkey, two busy moms who share a passion for bringing family and friends together at home. After a decade-long search for slippers stylish enough to entertain in at home, they decided to make their own. The result is a new indoor-outdoor shoe strong enough to stand up to the elements but luxe enough to wear for any occasion. Birdies is a new category of footwear that combines the style of a designer flat, the support of a sneaker and the softness of a slipper. Our exclusive 7-layer comfort technology means Birdies can be worn anywhere and everywhere—and that’s exactly what customers are doing.

Birdies is located in a beautiful downtown office in San Francisco’s Financial District and is backed by Norwest Ventures, Slow Ventures and Forerunner Ventures. Called Meghan Markle’s favorite shoe and featured in Elle, InStyle and the New York Times, Birdies is growing quickly and looking for great people to join the team.
