Rothy’s sneakers are 3D-knitted from thread made from plastic water bottles. But that’s not even the most impressive thing about them—and it’s certainly not the first thing you notice. With its two-toned off-white uppers, bold contrasting stripe, and gum rubber soles, Rothy’s RS01 Sneaker screams vintage court-shoe style.
The fact that they’re produced with nearly zero waste… That they’re made in Rothy’s owned-and-operated factory in China… That they have a 75 percent lower carbon footprint than the average sneaker… It’s all great. But the fact is, not everyone wants to wear a boring eyesore, even if it happens to be better for the planet. The RS01 take the hope of a more sustainable shoe and casts it in a new, exciting, and covetable style. It’s a confident, considered design that sets these apart from the glutted shoe landscape and you have zero reasons not to snap a pair up.
