Discovering Chicago In My Rothy’s Flats

This post was sponsored by Rothy's. I was paid for this post and received the included Rothy's shoes as compensation.

Have you ever walked around your own city as if you were a tourist? Over the weekend my husband and I did just that. We walked for miles and miles and soaked in the beauty of the city as if it was our first time seeing it. My husband and I have traveled the world together but this past weekend we had the urge to explore our own city. Thanks to my classic pointed toe flats from Rothy’s it was possible to walk around for miles without my feet getting tired.

Exploring our very own city was very refreshing. My husband and I were not only able to see new things but from a completely different perspective. Sometimes you pass monuments, buildings, etc.  without paying close attention so, you end up missing the beauty of it all. However, this time Jeff and I made an effort to be in the moment, soaking everything in as if we were tourists.

For our little adventure in the city I decided to wear my modern pointed toe flats from Rothy’s. They are not only super comfortable but also elevate your look to the next level. I opted for a pair of white denim and a beige turtleneck sweater to complete my outfit.


About Rothy’s

Stephen and Roth, the co-founders, realized something was missing from the market. “Sustainability was growing in importance but was not yet stylish, and style and comfort rarely coexisted. Women needed a stylish, comfortable, sustainable shoe they could wear all day every day, no matter where their busy lives took them.” Rothy’s prides themselves on the sustainability of their shoes—they’re woven out of a sustainable textile made from 100% recycled water bottles— and the fact that they’re moisture-wicking and machine washable is an added bonus. I’m all about sustainability hence being able to wear fashions with low-waste, low-impact materials is very much what I am looking for.





Overall I’m happy to report that Rothy’s are totally worth the investment. They kept my feet comfortable during my Chicago visit, and they are the absolute perfect shoe for lots of walking! You can machine wash them (win) and they are made with recycled materials (win-win).


Go get some Rothy’s. You’re going to love them!

    I absolutely love the look of the Rothy’s (especially the pointed toe ones) and those leopards are no my new favorite! But I’ve really been hesitant to get a pair because that’s high-dollar for flats. It’s great to know that they’re worth it! I love Chicago. I was born there and spent my summers there until I was 16. It’s been so long since I’ve been back and this makes me want a visit (but not this time of year).

    Chicago is so beautiful, and those shoes looks really comfy 🙂

    Yes, comfortable shoes are a must and these are so chic! Your whole outfit is beautiful and on point. I also love to explore my city and try to do it as often as I can. I always find new restaurants and little shops that I love. Every neighborhood in Manhattan has its own personality.

    Those are such cute little shoes. I’ve not heard of this brand before so I’m so glad to learn about them. I love finding shoes that aren’t leather.

    Cute flats and cool that they are comfortable to walk in. I was born in Chicago and even though I live in Milwaukee now I travel back and forth quiet often. Me any love just drove to Chi last weekend because I had a hankering for fresh Garrett’s popcorn and a Maxwell Street Polish and we drove back home after picking them up, lol, good thing he doesn’t mind indulging my whims.

    Sometimes it’s wonderful to explore closer to home. We so often forget to appreciate where we are.

    I went to Chicago for the first time a little over a year ago. I went for my job and I loved it. I use to work for Michigan Avenue magazine and it was funny me and the photo editor walked in to a place to eat and at the same time we both knew the place from doing a story on it, I think it is called The Kitchen. And these shoes sound great, machine washable? Wow. And love that they are made from recycled materials.
