Tuesday Shoesday: A Rothy’s Review

It’s my favorite workday … Tuesday … or better known as Shoesday!  A few weeks back I asked for requests on places you would like to see Shoesday picks from and I had several people ask for a Rothy’s Review.  Well to those that made this request – today is your lucky day!  For others … what is Rothy’s you say?  Well clearly your Social Media feed isn’t as filled with their advertisements as mine is …

About Rothy’s

“After many years living and style watching in San Francisco, and seeing the flip-flop and sneaker epidemic reach critical proportions, we arrived at the idea of Rothy’s.  We wanted to create an alternative, versatile shoe: one with the ease of a sneaker but with the polish of a feminine flat.  And do it with low-waste, low-impact materials, hand-assembled for high quality and durability.” (Rothys.com)

Their shoes are meant to look like you are going to the office but feel like you are going to yoga.  And let me tell you they fit the bill. I put them on Monday morning after running 17+ miles on no sleep this weekend … magic. Let’s just say I am fully onboard with feeling like I’m going to yoga and not work!  #RagnarRunningProblems

Picking My Rothy’s

After browsing their website for a few minutes I will admit to being overwhelmed by choice.  Overwhelmed in a good way though …. so many lovely options.  #MustChooseOnlyOne  They have so many good choices though.  Since I browsed fo rmine, they have added a Herringbone and a Cap Toe option.  I may have to add those to my collection.  I might even try the rounded version for the Cap Toe. #Might

The first decision to be made is pointed or round toe.  I am decidedly in the pointed toe camp.  I only like my toes rounded if they are also embellished (I blame Tory Burch for this).   Plus, pointed toes elongate your legs and who doesn’t want that?  Making this choice eliminates half of the options but then you still have to choose a color and/or print.  I decided to go very neutral with black and white but still have some fun with a python print!  #SnakeSkinIsAlwaysAWin

Rothy’s on My Feet

My shoes arrived lighting quick in a perfectly sized box (also sustainable). I promptly ripped it open and put them on my feet.  My first thought was literally …Wow! They felt great.  I then I shoved them back in their box to go run with the girls for two days.  When I returned, I spent Sunday trying not to wear shoes and grimacing every time I had to walk down stairs or sit down.  #HelloQuadMuscles

“There’s a comfort that comes from not having shoes on at all. We’re proud to say that we (finally) figured out how recycled plastic water bottles can be transformed into a comfortable knitted shoe that fits like a glove and is soft like a sock.” (Rothys.com)

On Monday, after giving my legs and feet a serious beating over the weekend, I decided comfortable flats was the only way to go.  Out of the box came the Rothy’s for their work debut!  #spotlightonmyfeet

The shoes really do live up to their hype. They are extremely comfortable. I found they fit true to size (there does seem to be a consensus to size up a half size if you have wider feet). The good news is they offer free exchanges and returns so there is little risk if you get it wrong. #CustomerServiceIsKing

After a long day traipsing all over the metro area you could hardly tell I had worn them. If you do get them dirty, they simply wipe up to clean  – you can even toss them in the washing machine.  I’m looking forward to this test after a little more wear. With this in mind though, I think I just found my go-to travel shoe! #TravelStyle
