WHAT CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING

They're so comfortable and easy to slip into. I can't say enough about the quality of the shoes The Root Collective sells. My closet is filled with TRC, highly recommend them!

-MONICA

I’m a teacher on my feet all day. These shoes (heart eyes) go with so much, feel amazing all day, and have stayed so much cleaner than I expected (I did treat them with a suede spray). I brag about TRC all the time, and these beauties make it so easy.

-AMY

I am in love with my Shelly Sandals! They are so comfy + I have gotten so many compliments, giving me the opportunity to share about the great things happening at TRC!
