Sustainable fashion is having a moment — and rightfully so. More brands are now consciously designing ethically sourced products that contribute little to no environmental waste. While this is a noble effort, a lot of these designs lack style and comfortability.
Rothy’s has always struck the perfect balance between ethics and aesthetics, and its best-selling men’s loafer is a testament to that. The brand’s Men’s Driving Loafer is so popular that it sold out for weeks during its initial launch. Right now, the cult-favorite item is back in stock with a few new colors and designs added to the mix.
Known for its best-in-class sustainable design process, Rothy’s has built a reputation of being one of the most fashion-forward clothing brands with a conscience.
“We choose sustainable materials and build every product in our wholly-owned factory,” the brand said in a statement. “Our revolutionary design process blends handcrafted assembly with world-class knitting technology to create exceptionally comfortable footwear — with nearly no waste.”
As with all of its launches, Rothy’s took this into heavy consideration when designing its Men’s Driving Loafer. This shoe was designed to fit comfortably without socks and ranges from sizes seven to 16. Best of all, it features a minimalistic design that complements any outfit and comes in seven beautiful colors, including two camo-print variations.
Here’s where things get interesting. These aren’t your basic loafers — they’re knit from Rothy’s signature thread that’s spun from plastic water bottles. Also, the brand avoids 30% less material waste by using a knit-to-shape technique, which contrasts with traditional cut-and-sew methods.
This Rothy’s Men’s Driving Loafer restock also features an understated heel detail inspired by racing stripes.
You also get more bang for your buck with these. Thanks to their 100% sustainably crafted design, they can withstand hundreds of washes and wears, making these the perfect summertime shoe.
