Giesswein’s Ballerina Flats Are So Chic & Comfortable, You’d Never Know They Were Made From Recycled Plastic
Photo: Scouted/Giesswein.Eco-friendly companies like All Birds and Rothy's aren’t just becoming go-to shoe brands because of their commitment to sustainability. In fact, these forward-thinking, innovative companies are designing shoes that are so comfortable and fashionable, you’d never know they were made with sustainable materials like wool and recycled water bottles.Like these popular footwear brands, Giesswein's ballet flats (and all of their shoes, for that matter) are designed with the commitment to lessen their overall ecological footprint. The Austrian-based, family-owned footwear company uses materials like recycled ocean PET fabric – meaning plastic that has been recovered from the ocean – and Merino wool to create their footwear lineup, including the ever-adorable, super-stylish Eco Pointed Ballet Flats. The company’s flats come in two distinct style: a pointy and a round toe. I gravitated more toward the pointed toe because it looks more formal and dressed-up than the rounded toe, which I recommend for more casual, dressed-down days.Given how popular Rothy’s shoes have become, especially after Meghan Markle was spotted wearing them on several outings, it’s easy to compare Rothy’s and Giesswein.
