WHAT IS ROTHY’S?

Our shoe company is headquartered in San Francisco, California. Co-founders Roth Martin and Stephen Hawthornthwaite created and built Rothy’s together.

After years of manufacturing development, restarts and revisions, Rothy’s are here at last. It is the first ever three dimensional, seamlessly knit line of fashion footwear inspired by the active lifestyle. Never has this been done before. Until now. With incredible effort and years of relentless commitment to quality, style and ingenuity, Rothy’s are ready for you. They are the shoes that you have been waiting for.

HOW ARE THEY MADE?

Rothy’s are the world’s first seamless knit shoes. Rothy’s are knit three dimensionally, heat set, hand assembled and finished with the perfect cushioned insole. Three simple parts. That’s it.

WHAT ARE THEY MADE OUT OF?

Our yarn is made from certified PET plastic bottles. The US consumes 1,500 water bottles each second, and over 40 billion end up in landfill annually. We use these recycled bottles, stripped of their caps and labels, hot washed, chipped into flake and fused into filament fiber to make our yarn. Our yarn is treated with a proprietary moisture wicking agent that drives moisture away from your foot.

ARE THEY REALLY RECYCLED?

Rothy’s are knit using a 100% recycled fiber.

Our rubber outsoles are carbon free.

Our insole foams are 100% recyclable.

Our packaging is recyclable.

Our shoes are recyclable at the end of their life. We've partnered with PlusFoam. To recycle your shoes please find follow this link: http://www.plusfoam.com/brands/rothys

WHAT MAKES SEAMLESS CONSTRUCTION SPECIAL?

Our proprietary process of knitting shoes to their 3D shape greatly reduces waste. No cut pattern waste, no waste due to irregularities and defects. Seamless construction also increases comfort; no elastic, nothing abrasive. Just comfort.

Our shoes are knit and assembled by hand in the best factories in China. We use sustainably sourced materials and practice the best possible judgment in choosing our partners.

Our products are tested and certified by outside laboratories. Our products are patent pending.

HOW CAN I TAKE CARE OF MY ROTHY’S?

Our shoes are machine washable on occasion. We recommend cool to warm water and detergent. The insoles should be removed from the shoes prior to washing but they too can be washed. Do not use bleach. Air dry only.

WHERE CAN I BUY ROTHY’S?

Rothy’s are currently available on our website exclusively. If you’d like to learn more about our Brand for wholesale, please email us at stockists@rothys.com.
