Allbirds Adds Former Nike VP Ann Freeman (Hebert) to Board of Directors

Allbirds has been making some big moves as of late. Recently, they’ve opened a Portland office and reportedly poached Nike employees in the move. Allbirds is a global lifestyle brand that uses natural materials in its apparel and footwear. Now, Allbirds has announced a new member to its board of directors.

Ann Freeman worked with Nike for 26 years as Vice President and General Manager of North America, overseeing the notorious SNKRS app until March 2021. If the name sounds vaguely familiar, that is because Ann Freeman has been confirmed to be Ann Hebert. The latter indeed worked as Vice President and General Manager of North America. She found herself in hot water after it was revealed that her son Joe Hebert was running a sneaker resale business called West Coast Streetwear early last year. Freeman resigned from Nike last Spring after the revelations came to light. 

This is a developing story. Stay tuned to SoleSavy for more industry news.

Sole Savy is unreal! With a busy schedule it’s hard to keep up on shoes, and the group keeps me up to date on releases, tips on how to manually cop, and a marketplace with killer deals from fellow like minded collectors. It’s changed the sneaker game for me!

@SoleSavy is the truth. They've helped me cop kicks I never would've imagined getting at retail. Members always willing to assist on drops too. And most of all, a REAL community of REAL sneakerheads. These guys should be the gold standard for sneaker communities! #LifetimeMember

My membership paid for itself three fold by being solely responsible for my union 4’s, mesh sacai waffles, sacai blazers, court purple aj1s, glow in the dark yeezy 350s, travis scott lows (which I traded to get desert ore ow’s), air max 1 londons, bc3’s for way under retail etc.

Can't say enough about SS. The stellar help with copping shoes is a given but it's the community that makes it extra special. Hands down one of the best decisions I made as a wannabe sneakerhead.

The community of sneakerheads and resources available to help manually cop are great and really will help you get more Ws. The Zoom calls for hyped drops like Union Jordan 4 only adds to the camaraderie while providing real time instruction
