Allbirds opens a big and beautiful new spot on Hayes…in the former home of Rand + Statler (R.I.P.).
Plus, local Sabah fanatics can finally shop for the Turkish-made leather slip-ons IRL, a cashmere pop-up lands on Fillmore, and Gazette boutique throws a very French soiree.
Allbirds is chirping at you, Hayes Valley.

Allbirds is celebrating a new hatchling. Born two weeks ago on Hayes Street, the new shop, situated in the former Rand + Statler space, is significantly larger than the OG store connected to the brand's Jackson Square HQ. The fun and bright 6,700-square-foot store pays homage to its hometown via gray-blue color pops, an affectionate ode to Karl the Fog, and with the metal and wood service bar, a clear shout-out to the Golden Gate Bridge. Our favorite SF thing, though, is the Tree Topper ($115) in a limited-edition, only-available-in Hayes, washed-navy-and-green combo inspired by the Land's End Trail. You can also shop the full collection including the new-on-the-scene Trino socks, made from wool and trees...because of course. // 425 Hayes St. (Hayes Valley), allbirds.com
Garin's Pac Heights pop-up is all about cashmere.

Next time you're strolling Fillmore, make it a point to pop by Garin. The new (long-term) temporary shop sells just one thing: cashmere sweaters. Currently, you'll find six women's and five men's styles—timeless crews to elevated hoodies. Eco- and animal-friendly, each sweater is crafted in 100 percent biodegradable cashmere, with yarn processed in Italy and made in Mongolia. And, be still our hearts, they're machine washable, too. Local designer Negarin Sadr set out to create an everlasting sweater that won't pill or unravel with wear. We can't get enough of The Carly's spaceship design. Prices range from $295 to $495. // Open daily from 11am to 7pm; 2053 Fillmore St. (Pacific Heights), garinshop.com

San Francisco is Sabah's second largest market (after NYC), so it's no shock that the brand finally opened Sabah House Haight Street. The beautiful mission-style building, a former restaurant with several distinct areas, is a welcoming space in which to shop for the label's namesake shoe. ICYMI: The flat leather shoes are handcrafted by artisans in Turkey, come in an ever-changing slew of mouthwatering colors, and they're crazy comfortable. Available in men's, women's and kids' sizes, the basic adult style retails for $195. (Those who prefer open-backs, check out the equally chic babas.) Customers are encouraged to enjoy hand-blended tea by day and mezcal by happy hour in the light-filled living room bar. Also, stay tuned for a twice-monthly Sabah Supper series featuring local chefs, winemakers, artists, and more. // 663 Haight St. (Lower Haight), shop.sabah.am
