About Rothy's Shoes
Rothy’s Shoes, found online at Rothys.com, is a new product which claims to be an alternative, versatile shoe that uses environmentally friendly materials and production means while still being stylish.
How Does It Work?
According to their website, the creators of Rothy’s Shoes lived in San Francisco, where they began to see sneakers and flip flops become the most popular shoe choices for people who wanted a comfortable shoe to spend their day in. They were frustrated that there was not a more stylish shoe option for woman that could comfortably worn all day long, so they decided to make one.
But it wasn’t enough to make a shoe that was stylish and comfortable, they also wanted to create a shoe that was better for the environment. Rothy’s Shoes are actually made from recycled plastic bottles which are manufactured using their special 3-D Knit Technology.
Using their special design and technology, Rothy’s Shoes “fit like a glove and are soft like a sock.” They are intended to be able to worn all day, no matter how active you are being, and whenever they need to be cleaned they can simply be thrown into your washing machine and then air dried afterward.
And though they are durable and should last their customers quite a long time, their website says that when you are ready to retire your current pair of Rothy’s and replace them, they invite their customers to send them back to their recycling facility.
Currently Rothy’s Shoes has two different styles of flat shoes, their rounded toe style and their pointed toe style. At this time, the rounded toe style is priced at $125 per pair and their pointed toe style is priced at $145 per pair.
This company does provide their customers with a Refund Policy at this time, saying that all unworn shoes may be returned within 30 days of the date of delivery. They do ask that you try your shoes on carpeted surfaces when possible, and that you will return your shoes in their original condition and in their original packaging. To begin your return process, customers will simply need to go to their Returns page and enter their email, and then you can begin the Return authorization process and receive your specific return instructions, as well as a prepaid shipping label.
Unfortunately any shoes that have been used, washed, or altered will be eligible for return and will be considered final sale.

These shoes currently receive very positive reviews; wearers seem to really like them and recommend them to new customers. Some of the more in depth reviews online have pointed out, however, that like any other stylish flat shoes, they are not immediately comfortable. They do require some breaking in and adapting to the shape of the wearer’s foot before they reach their full level of comfort.
However, once they are broken in, their customers report that they are very comfortable and very breathable. Many reviewers said that if you are someone whose feet run hot, this may be the best shoe for you as it provides more air circulation than standard flats and if they get smelly at any point, they can be thrown in the washing machine and come out looking brand new.
