So you are considering buying your first pair of Rothy’s, but you’re not quite sure yet! Well, I absolutely love my Rothy’s and wanted to share a few reasons why with you. Honestly, you can’t go wrong with these shoes, I’m so glad I found them.

Before I start, if you have not heard of Rothy’s yet (where have you been living?) then let me give you the quick 4-1-1 on them.

  • Rothy’s makes comfortable and stylish shoes for women and girls.
  • They are made from recycled water bottles, so they are eco-friendly!
  • They are machine washable (more on that later).
  • And they aren’t cheap.  That’s probably why you’re reading this review to see if they are worth it!!!

Here are 9 reasons you should get your first pair of rothy's now

1

ROTHY’S ARE…ECO-FRIENDLY

You are a crunchy mom and you care about sustainability and the earth so you want to support companies and products that recycle and make stylish shoes out of recycled water bottles.  According to the Rothy’s website, “one million water bottles are sold internationally each minute. Only 9% of those bottles are recycled, leaving the remaining 91% in landfills and polluting our oceans.”  If we can all get behind companies like Rothy’s we can change the trajectory of our environment for the better.

ROTHY’S ARE…FREE AND EASY TO RETURN IF YOU CHANGE YOUR MIND

You like to be treated like the royal consumer that you are and Rothy’s makes it easy to return their shoes at no cost to you!  The box that they arrive in doubles as the return box and yes, it is made of recycled products too.  

The second pair of Rothy’s that I bought was the point style. Typically when I get pointed shoes I buy them a ½ size bigger than my usual size.   As soon as I unboxed them and tried them on, I found that my regular size would have fit perfectly. Returning them and getting the correct size was easy and free.  I just printed the return label and took them to the post office. Within the week I had received my new pair at the perfect size. I found this process to be simple and convenient.  Speaking of royalty, did you know that Meghan Markle was recently seen sporting her Rothy’s?

ROTHY’S ARE…AVAILABLE IN A VARIETY OF STYLES AND COLORS

You like a variety of styles & colors and the flexibility to wear them anywhere so you love that there are 4 styles to choose from; flats, points, loafers, or sneakers.  My personal favorite is my points. They work in the office or at the airport, on the golf course watching my son play, or even at the grocery store.  

I’ve worn my Rothy’s to concerts, cookouts, weddings and even Disney World!  Rothy’s are always introducing new colors and patterns as well as retiring colors, so I’ve found that if you love it, get it soon!  I find it helpful to subscribe so that I get emails as new colors are introduced. Check out some of my favorite colors.

ROTHY’S ARE…SO COMFORTABLE!

You were queen of the yoga pants rage so comfort is your thing. These shoes are so comfortable I could wear them around the house, on a walk in my neighborhood, while I am shopping all day, or even at the beach.  We are an active family and I have never had blisters or sores from my Rothy’s regardless of the number of steps I took in a day. Who knew that recycled water bottles could be so comfy?


Each shoe is crafted using 3D knitting which is pretty cool.  The soles are made from carbon-free rubber and the adhesive is vegan and non-toxic.  They are super flexible which adds to the comfort component.

ROTHY’S ARE…AVAILABLE FOR KIDS TOO!

You like sharing your shoe obsession with your little ones just like me.  After I learned how comfortable Rothy’s are and that I could literally work out in them, I decided they would be the perfect shoe for my 2nd grader.  She likes to dress up for school but also loves to run on the playground at recess.


Rothy’s give her the ability to wear a dressy outfit, with shoes that let her be a kid!  The best part is that when she gets them dirty, I just throw them in the wash and they are good as new!  The purple loafers are her favorite, but Rothy’s has already retired them. The kid’s jelly bean loafers are also super cute!

ROTHY’S ARE…BRIGHTLY COLORED AND VERSATILE!

You dream of building a capsule wardrobe and these shoes are just what you need to pair with any capsule outfit!  Imagine marigold or red Rothy’s with jeans and a black and white striped long-sleeved T-shirt.  These brightly colored shoes will make any basic outfit pop!

ROTHY’S ARE…GREAT FOR TRAVELING!

When you travel you wish you could fit more shoes in your carry-on because you hate checking bags.  I hate checking bags too!  Since being introduced to Rothy’s I have the coolest shoes at the conference.  These shoes take up so little space that you can easily add 4 pairs to your carry-on.

ROTHY’S ARE…BREATHABLE AND EASY TO WASH!

You like wearing flats but you hate the “no sock stench”


No woman wants to admit it, but let’s face it, your flats get stinky!  Any time you wear shoes without socks you end up with an odor problem.


I find that my Rothy’s don’t smell as bad as my other flats.  Maybe its because they are much more breathable than flats made of other materials.


Here is the best part – when they do need to be washed you can just take out the insole and toss both into the washing machine.  After a quick cold cycle, let them air dry and they come out looking as good as new!

Rothy has a great referral program!  Once you get your first pair and get $20 off by using my code, you can then refer a friend and give them $20 off their first pair.  In addition to their $20 off you also get $20 off on your next pair. I have had multiple friends use my code and the referral dollars just keep adding up!
