1) What size should I order? Do all styles fit the same?

All of our styles are built according to established industry standards for fit and sizing. We recommend buying your normal size in all our styles; however, some customers prefer going up a half size in The Point due to the shape of the toe. There is no break-in period for our shoes. They will fit the same from day 1 to day 365. If any style feels tight on your foot right out of the box, please note they will not stretch out and we recommend going up a half size. If your foot is wider than a "B", we recommend going up a half size from your regular size. Find our Size Chart here

2) Do Rothy's stretch?

Rothy's do not stretch. They will fit the same from day 1 to day 365. There is no break-in period.The knit structure is designed to hug the contour of your foot with a slight amount of give. If they are a little snug but not painful, wear them around the house (not outside!) for a day or so to see how they will give. After a day, if your shoes still feel too snug, we recommend going up a half size.

The only thing that affects the shape and fit is heat during the wash or drying process. Make sure to never apply heat to your Rothy's, and make sure to always wash them in cold water. With proper care, your shoes will maintain their shape and fit.

3) How do I care for my Rothy’s?

Our shoes are entirely machine washable in cold water. Just remove the insoles prior to washing and throw them in the washing machine with your shoes. Wash on a cold, delicate setting with mild detergent. Leave them to air dry. And just a reminder: any heat will cause Rothy's to shrink and lose shape, so make sure to never wash with warm water or put them in the dryer.

4) What shipping methods are available, and how long will it take to get my order?
