4) Why is the girls loafer priced at $65?

Lots of factors go into how we price all of the shoes we sell.. The amount of materials used to manufacture is of course part of that. One of the other key elements that dictate price is our process and the WAY we manufacture our shoes, and how much time it takes to knit and assemble each pair (which is all proprietary, but its what makes Rothys so unique!)

5) Do you carry other styles in Girls or just the Loafer?

We currently only carry the Loafer for girls, but we will definitely take your feedback into account for future launches!

6) How do I care for Girls shoes?

The care instructions for the Girls Loafer is the same as all of our shoes. Remove insoles from shoes and throw everything together in the washing machine. Machine wash cold on a delicate cycle with mild detergent. Air dry. And remember: absolutely no heat! Any heat will cause your Rothy’s to shrink.

7) Do you offer a trade-in service for Girls shoes because they grow out of them so quickly?

We currently do not offer a trade-in service, but we know that they make fantastic hand me downs! With our unique washability, its possible to refresh your pair of Rothys and pass them on to the next lucky pair of little feet.

8) Do you have Boys shoes?

We are only focusing on Womens and Girls at the moment, but you never know what the future holds - so stay tuned.

9) Should I buy a half size up for my child?

No, you should buy your child’s true size. The Girls Loafer does not stretch. Please use our Fit Guide to determine your child’s size.

10) How should they fit? Should there be extra room in the toes?

Her Rothy’s should be snug but comfortable. You should buy her true size. There is a tiny bit of give but not enough to stretch to size up a half size larger.

11) Girls shoes can get torn or dirty. Will you have a warranty?

Let’s face it, kids can be rough on shoes...the good news is that our shoes are machine washable if they get dirty. They are not stain resistant, but most play-time dirtiness will wash out easily. Our shoes are made of a knit fiber that will get torn or show signs of wear if abraded aggressively on a regular basis. Our return policy is the same as all of our shoes. Unworn, unwashed shoes may be returned within 30 days.

12) Are the Girls shoes available in your retail store?

Yes. The Girls Loafer is available at our retail store in San Francisco, including some special edition colors that are only available in our retail location.

13) Will separate insoles be available for purchase?

Stay tuned! Its very likely we will offer separate girls insoles in the future.

14) If i am a womens size 5, can i wear a girls size 4 based on your sizing conversions?

Technically, yes. Our girls loafer is the same length in a size 4 as our womens size 5. Where the fit will feel slightly different is in the width. Our girls shoes are built with a slightly wider fit in mind - something to consider if you are eyeing a girls shoe.
