Rothy’s Launches Its Most Affordable Style Yet ⁠— and It’s Perfect for Summer

Prepping for warmer weather ahead, Rothy’s is adding its first-ever flip flip flop to its lineup of sustainable shoes.

Called The Flip, the style features thong-toe straps made from recycled PET polyester yarn — which is strung together from recycled plastic water bottles — and cushy foam footbeds made of algae. It’s available in seven colors from “Tiger Orange” to “Grasshopper Green” as well as a classic black hue. And priced at $65, it’s the brand’s most affordable style yet.

In addition to The Flip, Rothy’s is also launching a new eco-friendly tote bag. The Reversible Tote, available now on Rothys.com for $175, implements the same rPET yarn used in the brand’s footwear along with recycled nylon and recovered ocean-bound marine plastic.

Rounding out the brand’s summer capsule are two sandal styles that released in mid-April: The Knot and The Triple Band. Retailing for $115 and available in four colorways, the open-toe shoes use vegan leather soles, a plant-based footbed and are accented by colorful rPET yarn.

Since launching in 2016, the brand has transformed over 45 million plastic water bottles into its signature PET material.
