Rothy’s are made from recycled plastic water bottles. The bottles are hot washed, sterilized, then fused into fiber that is knit into yarn.
The soles are made of environmentally-friendly recycled carbon-free rubber, and the insoles are made of recycled plastic from water bottles and recyclable foam.
Simply put, seamless means no hard seams or stiff edges that cause discomfort. Our patented seamless construction also significantly reduces waste, making Rothy’s stand out as a force for good in a notoriously wasteful industry.
Rothy’s uppers and insoles are both made using 100% recycled fiber that was once plastic water bottles. Our outsoles are made from carbon-free rubber. As for our recyclability, our packaging is 100% recyclable, and our shoes are recyclable at the end of their lifespan. Please consider donating your old Rothy’s or recycling them through our partner PLUSfoam, with free return shipping.

We strongly consider all elements that go into our packaging. We eliminated the dust bag to continue our efforts to reduce waste and continue our sustainability efforts.
We make some colors and prints of our shoes in limited quantities, so we recommend acting fast if you see something you love! We sometimes bring back old favorites, but we do permanently retire colors every now and then.
