Traveling means a lot of walking and that means comfortable shoes. But comfortable shoes does not always mean cute or stylish shoes. And what about going through airport security; you need an easy off-easy on shoe for that too! Well, as an avid traveler and travel agent I do have a shoe I cannot live without. I feel they are the best travel shoes for women and I wear them even when I am not traveling....introducing Rothy's!
I discovered Rothy's from an ad on Instagram and loved their story. Rothy’s was founded with an unwavering commitment to design a beautiful shoe with the environment in mind. So, get this - they use recycled plastic water bottles to create their shoes! Yes! And to date they have repurposed 20 million plastic bottles! Wow! But wait there’s more (Like my humor here lol) they are entirely machine washable! Yup! You read that correctly, you just throw them in the washer to clean them up! Love it! Rothy’s has also introduced a recycle program where you can send back your old Rothy’s to them to recycle them! (Not that I want to part with any of mine!) And did I say they are soft and light on your feet?!
Now my story. I love traveling and I love stylish shoes, so I found Rothy's online and fell in love. I still am wearing my first pair of Rothy’s and pretty much every day I do have on a pair. My tip as a travel agent is to wear a pair of shoes you can wear with several outfits when you travel, that way you have less items in your suitcase. So, I take my Rothy’s and I save even more space in my suitcase because I do not pack them in my suitcase…I wear them! I wear dress pants and blazer when I fly, and I always can throw on a pair of Rothy’s because they look great with dress slacks. Plus, I can slip them off and on quickly when going through security, and if I have TSA Pre-Check and do not have to take my shoes off, I have never had the alarm sound and have to remove my shoes and go back through like I have with other flats. (Who likes walking on the airport floor!!!)
Now here is another bonus, those same Rothy’s I wear on my flight I can wear with a sundress, shorts, jeans or skirt while on my vacation. They are so comfortable and so versatile that I make them my shoe of choice when I travel and when I am home! I bought a new pair when I was taking a cruise out of New York. I put them on when I flew out that morning and wore them for 3 days walking around New York City and on my cruise to Canada! Not one blister and I looked great with every outfit change! Honestly Rothy’s has no idea I am writing this blog post. I truly do wear these shoes almost every day and I am always asked where did I get my shoes, once I was on the monorail at Walt Disney World and two ladies asked me about my cute red herringbone ones in the picture above. And just last week my mother-n-law saw me wearing the silver ones in the picture and asked about them. I ordered her a pair as a gift to wear to my daughter’s wedding in February! They are my tried and true go to shoe no matter if I am traveling or not. Pssst hey Rothy's if for some reason you are reading this PLEASE make houndstooth ones!
