Spring Shoes to Wear if Your Toes Aren’t Ready to be Seen in Public
Our spring weather is starting to heat up. But my toes aren’t ready for sandals quite yet.
This happens every year – it suddenly becomes sandal weather before my feet are ready to slide into sandals. I need a pedicure!
It’s too warm for boots or wintery shoes, so what can I wear that is comfortable, lightweight, a looks like spring until my toes are sandal ready? My go-to is Rothy’s slip-on sneakers.
(PS – I’m wearing one of the elbow sleeve t-shirts from last week’s post.)
You know I love Rothy’s. It’s not the first time I’ve featured them in a post. I continue to share them because they are pretty great shoes. They are comfortable, washable, casually stylish, and so versatile. I’ve worn my Rothy’s slip-ons with pants and casual dresses.
Rothy’s makes shoes and accessories from “eco-friendly materials” and has a focus on sustainability. Their signature thread is crafted from single use plastic water bottles. So we can feel good about a Rothy’s purchase. Read more about their sustainability practices and commitment here.
This new spring color, Whisper Grey, intrigued me. I’m a bit of a pink fan and though the color name says nothing about pink, they looked more pink than grey to me online. It turns out, this color is a color shifter, which is fun! It can look pink, lavender, or gray depending on the lighting. And the texture is really interesting.
Rothy’s started with their classic ballet flats and point flats. They now offer 12 different shoe styles, including sandals and booties, as well as a variety of bag styles. Check out their offerings here.
Rothy’s slip-on sneakers sell for $125 – they are never on sale. However, occasionally they offer a surprise discount to their VIP email customers, so if you’re a fan of Rothy’s, sign up for their emails. With flexible styling, comfort, and the ability to toss these shoes into the washing machine over and over, the $125 price tag seems reasonable to me. (All Rothy’s shoes are machine washable.) Remember the cost-per-wear formula: price divided by the number of times you’ll wear an item. For me, that works out to a pretty low cost per wearing.
Rothy’s are comfy without socks, but I like to wear them with low-cut no-show Bombas socks.
