One of Meghan Markle’s Favorite Shoe Brands Just Gave a Classic Style a Modern Twist

If you’re looking for royal style at a non-royal price point, there are plenty of examples in Meghan Markle’s wardrobe, including pieces from Club Monaco, Aritzia and Everlane. But as for affordable footwear, Rothy’s is one of her go-to choices.

The San Francisco-based brand debuts its newest shoe silhouette today: a modern twist on a Mary Jane flat. The style retails for $155 and is available now online at Rothys.com in five unique colorways, ranging from sleek black — an option that feels right at home in Markle’s closet — to the “wildcat” print.

The take on the classic style features a pointed toe with a rounded vamp and an adjustable bow replacing the traditional cross-foot strap, all made with eco-friendly materials with the brand’s sustainable technique. The knit uppers of the Mary Jane use plastic fibers made from repurposed water bottles and are finished with a soft, carbon-free sole. Plus, the shoes are machine washable, so they can be easily cleaned after wear.

The sustainable footwear brand has soared in popularity since being spotted on the Duchess of Sussex’s feet. She favored the $145 Rothy’s flat over heels to walk the sandy shore of Australia with husband Prince Harry in October 2018.
