My Honest Review of Rothy Weekend Slippers
Let me start off by addressing the elephant in the room: As a color lover, I’d be lying if I said I was impressed by the shades of Rothy’s Weekend Slide—cream (Oats), black (Black) and olive (Garden)—consider them all neutral. Considered one of Rothy’s biggest draws as the brand’s rainbow imperative, I’d love to see these criss-cross sandals debut in their iconic Dragon Fruit, Shamrock and Periwinkle shades. brands, just to name a few. That said, the lack of color selection is my only complaint about this already well-loved sandal.
Here’s why Rothy’s Weekend Slides is really worth the hype. For starters, they have a support base. The contoured footbed, which sits on a tortoiseshell contoured sole, is made of rubber, so it feels soft without the lack of generous arch support. Plus, because they’re rubber, they won’t stain or retain foot odor like some other contoured soles (ahem, Birks) know.
Then there are the straps. While they’re not really stretchy, they feel comfortable — like Rothy’s flats. They’re also made from the same signature yarn, crafted with recycled plastic woven with natural hemp. The result is a soft, lightweight, breathable upper that has yet to penetrate my sensitive, blister-prone feet. Suffice it to say: I understand the social media reaction to this launch. Sandals are really the ultimate casual slip-on, unlike the sporty or “recovery” silhouettes that often fill that niche (think Oofos). For now, I can only hope they release new colors and indicators.
