Meghan Markle's $200 Flats Are Made From Recycled Plastic Bottles

While heels are undoubtedly a wardrobe staple—and there’s certainly a time and place to wear a gorgeous pair—flat shoes are just as crucial to a woman’s wardrobe. Think about it: Can you really imagine running around between meetings without a trusty pair? Probably not. While you may already have a go-to set in your closet, there’s nothing wrong with trying out a new style to change things up.

As it turns out, Rothy’s may just have your next It pair. Meghan Markle recently stepped out in Sydney and Melbourne wearing a pair of the brand's black flats, and they look comfortable as ever. The environmentally-friendly brand features a range of flats made from a 3D knitting process that cuts down an extreme amount of waste. The material is made from 100% recycled plastic water bottles, which would have otherwise ended up in landfill. The shoes are also very comfortable, and their non-leather material wicks away moisture and—bonus—can be cleaned in the washing machine after heavy use.
