Today, Allbirds announced the launch of its newest running shoe, the Flyer, which will be available to purchase in men’s and women’s sizes on May 17. The sneaker is built with a new midsole, SwiftFoam, which Allbirds said is over 30 percent lighter than its SweetFoam midsole. The Flyer also offers features like a flared heel for added support and reflective eye-stays to spot when it’s dark out. The brand said this shoe has been tested for over a year by 130 runners, clocking in almost 4,000 miles in total. Lululemon also recently debuted its Blissfeel sneakers in March.

Open Spaces redesigned its Underbed Storage after considering customer feedback about its original model. The new bins have what the brand described as a “soft-yet-structured body” and are made from natural canvas. To help you pull the bins out from under your bed, they feature a genuine leather handle. The brand said you fill the Underbed Storage like you would a suitcase, and they zip closed. The soft lid also now allows you to unzip the bins halfway when retrieving items. You can purchase Open Spaces’ Underbed Storage bins in a set of two.
