If there’s one style staple mothers love, it’s a good pair of flats. Which is why the launch of the cool and incredibly comfy Allbirds sneakers made us do an instant double-take. Made out of merino wool, the sustainable and multi-tasking fabric minimizes odor, regulates temperature (so they’re cool in the heat, warm in the cold), wicks moisture away, and is machine-washable, making these sneakers an ideal option to wear sans socks…and, quite honestly, really hard to take off thanks to their outstanding comfort (TIME called them the “comfiest shoes in the world”).

The designers behind the S.F.-based brand are also all about less-is-more design, which makes these lightweight and totally breathable sneakers a sleek alternative to the flashier options out there. Alongside Allbirds’ classic gray and black versions (which go with pretty much everything), there are limited-edition colorways that debut each season, so building your own vibrant collection of these wonders won’t be a problem. The company is honestly so confident you’ll adore these shoes that it offers no-questions-asked returns after 30 days if you aren’t loving them. Bonus: There are versions for men and women, and each order placed in December comes with a festive pair of laces.

To showcase the versatility of these kicks, we asked three mothers—Marin-based designer Natalie Deayala, Nashville-based artist Emily Leonard Southard, and L.A.-based kidswear designer Wells Butler—to show us how they style their new sneakers to perfection. And, since it is the season, we also chatted about holiday wish lists, New Year’s resolutions, and all of that jazz.
