Though many of us are spending all our time at home right now, this is almost a perfect timing for Rothy’s latest sandal release. Their Knot & Triple Band styles are certainly nice enough to elevate my sock-centric WFH style as of late. Even if you can’t wear their newest styles out in the world as they were intended, they actually work as really nice house slippers.
I already have a few pairs of Birdies slides and slippers – the shoes that famously began as indoor slippers and had to pivot after Meghan Markle wore them into fame. So I was curious to see how The Knot and The Triple Band felt in comparison.
When Rothy’s recently re-released their loafer style, I immediately purchased a pair to try them out. I wanted to compare them to another popular brand – the Birdies slipper, most famously worn by (soon to be princess) Meghan Markle. Overall, both pairs have the classic loafer silhouette with no frills – though Birdies does offer a cute tassled version. They’re comfortable in very different ways, which I’ll go through in the rest of the post.
How do Birdies various styles fit compared to other popular brands like Rothy’s and Allbirds? As you know, I enjoyed my first pair of Birdies, reviewed here. I couldn’t resist their latest sale and picked up a few additional pairs – and hope this article will help others narrow down the sizing amongst their various slipper styles.
