Shoes Knit From Recycled Water Bottles


 Rothy's is completely changing the shoe game.  They are merging fashion with eco-friendliness in a bizarre but genius way.  Their new shoes are actually knit from recycled water bottles.  The upper and insole is entirely made using this recycled water bottle filament, which is attached to a rubber sole.  These waste-free shoes are not only stylish but are bringing life to old trash! The process to make these shoes is similar to Nike's Fly Knit shoes and takes only about 6 minutes.  Rothy's plans to roll out new designs and even plans on adding solar panels to the factory where the shoes are made to push their sustainable mission.  Check out the shoes below!
