Meghan Markle Loves This Comfy Shoe Brand, and It Just Launched a Machine-Washable Boot
If a pair of versatile, eco-friendly boots that you can clean in the washing machine sounds too good to be true, think again. Rothy’s, a sustainable shoe brand loved by celebrities like Meghan Markle and Mandy Moore, released its newest shoe today that checks all these boxes. The Rothy’s Chelsea boot is the perfect fall boot-meets-sneaker hybrid to help you transition from summer temps to sweater weather.
The brand first caught our attention when the Duchess of Sussex stepped out in a pair of Rothy’s flats while on an Australian tour with Prince Harry last fall, just after she announced she was pregnant with baby Archie. Since then, the shoe company has only grown in popularity, and now it’s adding another style to its streamlined offerings.
Known for its classic flats, loafers, and sneakers made from recycled plastic water bottles—along with vegan, carbon-free rubber and other sustainable materials—Rothy’s just launched its first-ever boot style. Featuring a timeless Chelsea silhouette, the shoes not only looks stylish, but—like the rest of the brand’s offerings—they’re knitted from recycled fibers and feature a carbon-free sole.
Perhaps the most alluring aspect of these perfect fall boots? They’re completely machine-washable. Whenever you think they could use a refresh, you can simply toss them in the wash on a delicate cycle and let them air-dry. (Just don’t use warm water or heated dryers to avoid shrinking or losing the shape.)
The slip-on boots are available in eight stylish colors, including a cheetah print design dubbed Wildcat, a muted pink shade called Lilac Gray, a crisp blue with red accents named Arctic, and classic hues like black and white.
No matter which colorway you go with, the comfortable shoes are listed for $145. Certainly worth the investment, they’re incredibly versatile—dress them up with a skirt and a sweater for a day at the office, or pair them with a sleek pair of skinny jeans for a night out. They’d also look stylish with a casual, off-duty outfit, like a simple pair of jeans and a T-shirt.
Whatever look you’re going for, you can be sure your feet will stay as comfortable as possible in these cushioned shoes that feel just like you’re wearing a soft pairs of socks. Snag your pair of the new Chelsea boot now.
