Rothy’s believe that beautiful, sustainable style is the way of the future. They believe strongly in building relationships with their customers and watching their customers engage with one another over shared experiences, values, and the love of the product.
What Are Rothy’s Made Out Of?
Rothy’s are made entirely out of plastic water bottles. Rothy’s has recognized that every minute, one million plastic water bottles are sold globally, and 91% of the world’s plastic does not get recycled. By knitting the uppers of their shoes from recycled plastic water bottles, Rothy’s diverts waste from landfills every day and lets their customers look great while doing it!
Rothy’s are also made out of other sustainable materials including Merino wool (harvested from an Australian farm and crafted at a sustainable Italian mill), Eco-friendly outsoles (one made with carbon-free rubber, and the other using luxe vegan leather), and recycled foam insoles (made with bio-based castor oil and recycled materials).
Why Do People Love Rothy’s?
Women and children love Rothy’s because of their large variety of styles and colors. They also adore this brand because of their incredible comfort. It is not often that people can find a shoe that embodies all fashion, style, and comfort in one.
Rothy’s are versatile and convenient. While they are made for comfort, you can still wear them to dress up events. These shoes can be dressed up or down depending on the outfit you choose to go with them. You can also select one of the various makes such as their Chelsea boot or their Flat to complete the perfect look for the occasion.

What Size Should You Order In Rothy’s Shoes?
Rothy’s sustainable shoes are supposed to fit true to size. However, some customers prefer to size up in the pointed flat shoe because of the shape of the toe.
Rothy’s shoes do not have a break-in period. Meaning, you do not need to wear Rothy’s shoes for a significant amount of time in order for them to fit your foot perfectly. They should fit perfectly the first day you buy them, which is a part of their appeal. These shoes will also not stretch out like shoes of similar brands.
The Rothy’s sneaker may begin to have some slight give when being worn inside. The sneaker also has enhanced comfort due to the addition of the midsole, which the other shoe styles do not have.
How Do You Care For The Shoes?
Rothy’s, unlike many other shoe brands, are completely machine washable. This is a huge draw to the shoe because it makes them easier to clean and keep clean! You must wash the shoes in cold water and remove the insoles before washing. Use mild detergent and let the shoes air dry after they are washed.
Rothy’s do not do well in heat. This includes warm water, dryers, and outside heat (Do not put the outside to dry). This is when warping and shrinking occurs, and you are going to want to avoid both of those things in order to keep your shoes clean and pristine!
Can Your Family Wear Rothy’s?
While Rothy’s does not yet carry a mens collection, the kids collection is essentially universal. The Rothy’s kids collection is stylish, comfortable, and affordable for growing kids that are always on the go!
The colors of the kids collection are extremely versatile. You can buy plain for the children who don’t enjoy bright colors. And for those who love to stand out and get crazy with their fashion, their endless options for bright colors, designs, and prints!
