The shoe brand that trusts technology to create recyclable shoes out of recycled water bottles.

On our minds is Rothy’s, a new shoe brand trusting in technology to create recyclable shoes out of recycled water bottles. The San Francisco-based label uses a 3D knitting process to shape the upper – seamlessly – which is then sticked onto a recycled insole and carbon-free outsole. The simple construction makes the shoes both machine washable and recyclable. The shoes, available in two styles and 17 colour variations, are leather-free and also said to address one of the main issues with man-made material shoes – sweat – by keeping moisture out.
