Sustainable footwear brand Rothy's is venturing into the men's category with a pair of eco-friendly styles, including a Driving Loafer for men that's made with recycled and eco-friendly materials. According to the brand, these new styles fall into a category that came highly requested from customers and the launch was eight years in the making.
The machine-washable shoes are mindfully made to reduce waste and favor materials and processes that reduce their impact on the environment. Rothy's reports that its 3D knitting technique boasts a 75% lower carbon footprint created from men's upper production compared to the industry average. The durable style is designed to last hundreds of washes and wears, so that people get more from the footwear they invest in.
