Each time we release a new range, it's the result of many months of consideration and inspiration. Every silhouette serves a unique purpose and has been designed with longevity, versatility and, first and foremost, our customers in mind. To put it simply, we don't add new styles lightly.
So it's with great excitement we reveal TOGETHERNESS, part of our latest limited edition collection. We have spent over six months developing, refining and perfecting this shape in response to requests for a lower-cut silhouette.
Specifically designed to expose the ankle for the transition into the warmer months ahead, the feeling is off-duty dancer with a masculine twist. We took cues from both a classic lace-up ballet shoe and the traditional derby to craft this new low cut style available in four radical palettes.
Featuring a panelled upper pattern to assist with flexibility and wearability, these will mould to the shape of your foot. Comfort is key and these are made to keep you toe tapping from work through to play!
Our pick for the transeasonal months is the Green Animal Print pony hair. Accented with luxe raspberry velvet lining, we see these as the perfect ‘day-to-night’ toe tappers. Wear them to work, the bike ride there, the studio and then on to the gallery later!
We also love our fresh true white palette. Taking a textural approach, we used a thick hide leather that has been embossed with a mock croc finish to add depth, interest and a luxe finish. Combined with the splice panel detail, these are perfect with denim for weekend easy cool.
As we welcome our latest silhouette to the Radical Yes! family, it’s clear our love affair with flats really knows no bounds. Flats are, still to this day, sometimes seen as a radical choice for women. This year, Julia Roberts attended the Cannes film festival barefoot as a protest after the festival turned female attendees away for wearing flats the previous year. In Britain, over 150,000 people have signed a petition to make it illegal for women to be required to wear high heels at work, where gender-based dress codes are still legal. The issue will now be debated by the British parliament.
For us, it’s about problem solving and creating shoes that will support the lifestyles of active, creative Wonder Women. We want you to be able to move and be moved, to wear your shoes and not have them wear you.
Created for just that purpose, TOGETHERNESS is available in limited-edition quantities (as always) online and in-store now.
