My little Rothy’s

Fashion

Shoes made out of recycled plastic. Hopefully you are intrigued by this idea, however, you might also be concerned about the overall look and feel. Luckily, with the innovative and sustainable brand Rothy’s, you don’t have to sacrifice good style for the sake of earth friendly footwear.

Rothy’s are made from post-consumer recycled materials (they have transformed over 30 million plastic bottles into shoes.) From production to the treatment of workers, Rothy’s takes an ethical and sustainable approach. They are a direct to consumer brand so the only way to shop their footwear is through their online shop. They also have a collection for kids too.

I bought my Rothy’s earlier this year and I have already washed them numerous times. They feel like slippers on my feet (even after walking/standing for long durations) and look like new again after a quick wash. I love that the insoles come out as well if you just need to give those a mini clean to get rid of foot odor.

Rothy’s carries flats, pointed flats, loafers, sneakers, and now Chelsea boots. Most recently, the company launched a luxurious collection made out of sustainable sourced merino wool. I currently have the camel point on my wish list. I also really like the navy loafer too.

Fortress of Inca

Fashion

Rich buttery cream is the best way to describe the color and leather of my Fortress of Inca shoes. The company’s collection of leather footwear is not extensive but the quality of their products is solid and beautiful. I have had my pair for nearly a year and they have only gotten better within that time.

This particular style is sold out but you can find similar here or here.

Fortress of Inca was created to provide a US marketplace for handcrafted shoes made in Peru. The company has worked with family-owned and operated factories since their establishment in 2010. They believe strongly in quality craftsmanship, timeless design, fair wages, and good working conditions for all workers.

If you live in Austin, TX you can go to Fortress of Inca’s brick and mortar shop. If not, you can still shop online through their website or visit one of their many retail partners nationwide.

One of my colleagues liked my shoes so much, she became a convert and now we are Fortress twins! Her Carmen Style is still available for purchase.
