I had been stalked on Facebook and Pinterest for ages, and I finally gave in about 18 months ago, and am so glad I did! They were showing up in every internet window I opened, just patiently waiting for me to click and order. I avoided them for a while, thinking they were too expensive for me. I closed ads without looking too close, because I didn't know how I'd choose if I *did* click through. I closed my eyes and scrolled on by, afraid of falling in love.
And then I bit the bullet, clicked and ordered. I didn't overthink it. I reviewed the available options, read a couple of reviews to figure out if they run big or small, and I went with my first instinct. And then it was done.
I owned a pair of Rothy's Points flats in Leopard.
The most versatile shoe
I had always heard that “animal prints are neutral” but was never quite able to get on board with that, until my Rothy's came into my life.
They are easily the most-worn shoes in my closet, and I've paired them with everything from jeans to dresses, and wear them to work probably three days a week. They're comfortable, look great, they're made from recycled water bottles! What's not to love?
I even accidentally wore them camping once. (I was so comfortable in them, I didn't even think to change into sneakers when it got to be time to leave!)
As a company, Rothy's has recycled nearly 40,000,000 plastic bottles into thread, which is then used to weave their fabrics. Their outsoles are made of either carbon-free rubber or a luxe vegan leather, and the insoles are recycled materials and bio-based castor oil. Sustainability FTW!
I used to buy a pair of basic flats every few months. I'd go to Target or Payless, spend $25, get some shoes. I'd wear them over and over until they were literally falling apart, and then I'd toss them and repeat. Rothy's are washable. WASH-A-BLE. Like, throw them in the washing machine on cold and they come out looking like new! Seriously.
You can express yourself in different ways; besides the gorgeous exterior prints, you can add a different color insole, for a secret little pop of color that only you know about.
They are not the cheapest shoes on the market, but they are worth every penny. I still love novelty shoes, but these are in a class of their own.
I can help you save a few pennies though, because when you order through my referral link, you'll get $20 off your first pair!
PS: With the exception of the header image, I feel it important to mention that all of the photos in this post just happened to be on my phone. I didn't take any of them specifically for the post, it just happened because I wear them THAT OFTEN.
