Whoever said shoes can’t be washable have not seen the trend that’s hitting the market right now. Washable shoes are now a focus of startups and notable footwear brands alike, gaining a strong following from shoe lovers who’d like the option of cleaning it versus chucking it and/or buying a new pair. From stylish animal-print flats to running shoes, these brands are giving us a run for their money with cool kicks we’d love to keep:
Launched in 2016, Rothy’s is a startup founded in Silicon Valley by two men who wanted to create a women’s shoe for all occasions. Rothy’s shoes are actually sustainably made with a conscience — more than 100 million plastic bottles from landfills have been made into the brand’s super chic ballet flats. Alongside plastic, Rothy’s shoes are also made from 3D knit that mimics the shape of a foot. The best part? If your shoes get stained or starts to smell, toss it in the washing machine for a quick rinse and it’ll come out almost brand new!
Ever heard of sneakers made of wool that you can wear in the summer? Startup company Allbirds is revolutionising the way we wear sneakers with their super comfy, ethically-made kicks. Launched in 2016, the brand has sold more than a million shoes since its inception. And most recently, Allbirds has used a new material, specifically fibers from the eucalyptus tree to create “tree shoes” in two silhouettes — a running shoe and boat shoe. If you thought that wool or fibrous shoes aren’t the best for warm/humid weather, Allbirds will change your mind with its ultra-ventilated shoes.
BluKicks offers breathable shoes that are perfect to wear for any vacation, without breaking your bank. Made from cotton canvas that molds your feet sans the overly-restricted feeling, each BluKick shoe has a natural rubber sole that’s supportive, along with removable insoles with arch support. Our favourites are the lace ups and Ikat canvas kicks that screams summer ready in a heartbeat.
Gotta love a pair of boat shoes that’s spring/summer appropriate for all occasions. Look no further than Sperry — whose boat shoes have been iconic since 1935 and is pretty much the all-American emblem for boaters. The beauty about Sperry’s boat shoes is that it’s actually washable. For women’s, try out the washable leather sneakers for a change from the typical rubber trainers you go for.
We’ve covered boaters, running shoes and ballet flats. But what about sandals? Instead of going with a typical pair of flip flops to the beach, try on Charleston Shoe Co.’s sandals that will make any outfit look good. These cork-heeled, hand-washable shoes have a piece of leather beneath the toe strap to prevent your feet from sliding forward. Plus, it’s great for traveling as it is lightweight and versatile.
