When Rothy’s announced their new sneaker style, I was intrigued and eager to give them a try. I love my Allbirds Tree Loungers, and was curious how this new washable style would compare! I also have a pair of Murakami Classic Vans that I love, but don’t nearly wear enough – and wondered where in the spectrum of slip-ons the Rothy’s sneaker falls. Read on for my initial impressions.
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.
