I'm currently wearing Band-Aids on the back of both heels. I won't tell you which flats caused them because I'm here to play nice. But I will tell you which flats I wish I was wearing as a preventative measure: my Rothy's. I've been sporting The Point in black for over a year now, and my pair also features a white racing stripe down the side, a stylish little touch from one of the brand's first collections.
Rothy's hasn't let up on the fashionable twists though. With each new release comes a fresh, 3D knitted print (I know so many women obsessed with the leopard!) and even The Loafer has been introduced as an updated silhouette.
Started by Stephen Hawthornthwaite and Roth Martin in San Francisco, Rothy's is devoted to bettering the environment because every shoe is made from recycled plastic water bottles (you can see how many have been re-purposed so far by Rothy's) and finished with a carbon free sole. If they get dirty, you can throw them in the washing machine. And they're so flexible that you actually feel like your foot is shaping the flat, not the other way around.
If you've ever invested in footwear without a heel because you were looking for comfort, only to be disappointed by a restricting shape that caused more pain than a sky high stiletto, then you're in my boat, and Rothy's is the solution.
These babies, which range in price from $125 to $165, even come with removable insoles, making them more functional than most other designs! Read on to shop my absolute favorite styles available right now, and make your feet real happy. Seriously, this is almost as good for them as a deep tissue foot massage.
