Since debuting its first collection of women’s shoes in 2016, Rothy’s has launched lines of kids’ footwear, handbags, and travel bags all made with repurposed plastic waste. And now, after five years, the San Francisco–based company finally makes shoes for men.

The collection, which launched on May 20, includes a lace-up sneaker and a slip-on driving loafer made using the same 3D knitting process and 100 percent recycled materials as the brand’s other products. Designed to be worn with or without socks, both shoes are also machine washable so you don’t have to worry about any stink if you plan on packing these for every trip you take this summer.

Here’s a closer look at each style, available to shop online at Rothys.com and in Rothy’s retail stores in Boston, New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Washington, D.C.
