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.
Rothy’s made a big splash this week with their latest product line – sustainable handbags & accessories made from recycled plastic. Their styles are fairly tried & true classics, such as a simple envelope Pouch ($95) and a large work-appropriate Tote ($275). Though I don’t currently need a new work bag, I decided to pop by the SF store to try out the Handbag ($350).
When Rothy’s announced its latest merino wool collection of flats, points, loafers and sneakers, I was pretty excited. I’ve been a fan of Allbirds wool offerings and, in general, appreciate the anti-stink nature of wool compared to other materials. I was in the market for a nude-ish neutral shoe for fall, and decided to get The Point in Camel Wool to test out their new wool flats.
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.
Rothy’s latest silhouette, the Chelsea, is a spin on their existing sneaker style. I tried and reviewed the Sneaker when it first came out last year, and wanted to do the same for their latest style. The Chelsea is a high-rise sneaker profile that features the same sole, shape and material as the Sneaker. I decided to buy a pair in Lilac Grey, a nice neutral that can be worn for any season.
