Wear, Wash, Repeat

Why is it that the things we love most seem to be determined to keep our shoes from staying clean? Kids. Coffee. Unexpected rain. If we had a penny for all the soles we’ve lost to orange juice meltdowns and leaky coffee lids, our piggy banks would burst. Lucky for us, Rothy’s washable flats have washed away our worries. The fact we can toss them in the washing machine after a day on the go is one of our very favorite features.

Some people prefer to wash by hand, but Rothy’s are designed to be thrown in the washing machine. Just remove the insoles and place them in the washing machine along with your shoes. Wash on a cold, delicate setting with mild detergent. And a gentle reminder: any heat will cause Rothy’s to shrink and lose shape, so make sure never to wash with warm water or put them in the dryer. Leave them to air dry overnight, and the next morning your Rothy’s will be clean, beautiful, and ready for you to take them out for another spin.

But don’t take it from us. Here’s what happy customers have to say:

“I love them, and love knowing that I can wash them!” – Nicole

“I love these shoes. True to size, truly breathable and I throw them in the machine on the weekend. I have 2 pairs and 3 on the way.” – Teena

“I adore my first pair and I cannot wait to buy another. They are literally the most comfortable flat I have ever worn, and I'm so excited that I can just toss them in the washing machine if they get dirty!” – Sarah

“I am in love with my Rothy's! The fact that they are washable is the icing on the cake.” – Trishia

So long, coffee stains.
