1 of only 80 pairs made. We are so excited to present our newest last - a point toe flat in an architectural inspired pump designed for ALL the things. Bound with criss-cross elastic straps, these are the work-weekend-evening toe tappers you have been waiting for.
One of the best things about working with our new maker Mipiaci has been able to access a whole array of new lasts. This was the spring board for our new point toe flat which we have been wanting to develop for a long time. The elastic strapping is something we have also mused about for ages and was able to come to life after we sourced a brilliant new elastic supplier who was able to meet our small order quantities. We are so proud of this shoe which is genuinely unique and set to become a new signature to Radical Yes.
The upper has also been carefully considered, with the elastic placed strategically over the foot to create a feminine, yet very strong silhouette. It has a dancerly quality which we love, but because the thickness of the elastic is slightly exaggerated it also becomes something very modern and bold. The elastic adds just the right amount of feminine - making them absolutely everyday wearable. An art shoe and true object of beauty we really love this new style.
Running true to fit and despite it's appearance we have not found it overly narrow at all.The point toe last changes the proportions visually however because we have used a very unstructured upper - with minimal stiffeners and heavy backings, the fit is basically glove like on the foot and will mold to the shape of your foot very easily. Length is true to fit. Feel free to call us 0437 933 073 if you need to talk through your sizing before you order.
Absolutely the stand out palette mix for the collection! The combination of Black kid leather through the upper, contrasted with the richer tones of a Nude top strap over the vamp and set alight by the criss-cross rust elastic was a literal gob-smacker when the samples came in for this shoe. It's unusual, and almost intentional clashing but wonder women on the foot it is sooo RADICAL! Lined with Natural colour leather and finished with a solid black resin outsole to be both modern and durable. Completed with delicate 'This is Radical Yes' ribbon label as a talisman and a reminder to bring all the YES to your day.
When we were designing this shoe we were thinking about how often we crave a flat shoe for 'events' that looks equal parts dressed up as it does grounded. Personally I am really excited to now have a Radical Yes shoe for those kinds of more formal things that inevitably come up in Spring - workshops, mentor talks, weddings and other Saturday afternoon soirees, that will still allow for a flat shoe liberation mood in a look that kind of speaks to 'heels' dressing. Makes sense in my mind anyway... ;> , but thats how I will be wearing them. Sharp, functional and put together. Thinking long line trenches in floaty fabrics and ankle grazing trenches. The best bit though is that they work just as well in opposites like the way we styled it here - manstyle pants and a casual tucked in tee-shirt will also be best friends with this shoe. Like all Radical Yes shoes, dress them up, dress them down. Let the shoes do the talking.
Leather Upper / Leather Lined / Rubber Resin Outsole
Made responsibly in China in small batch quantities by our new boutique manufacturing partner, Mipiachi.
Yes. This is a full leather upper / leather lined shoe so will have natural stretch of around 5 - 7% depending on the amount of pressure applied to the upper.
Rad friends this is an extremely high quality leather upper so it does need care.
Leather is a wonderful material, breathable, durable and beautiful. But without a bit of love it can dry out and deteriorate.
For optimum care, we recommend and sell "Waproo Waterproofer" to protect them from unexpected showers. We recommend spraying monthly on the Full Moon and can send you a reminder if you sign up to our newsletter here.
Polish your leather shoes around once a month and clean when necessary with a leather conditioner and soft rag to remove any dirt accumulated on your travels.
For extra special treatment, polishing can help renew shoes that have developed scratches or other signs of regular wear. Wax and cream polishes available from a local shoe repairer will breath new life into your beloved toe tappers. Once your newly polished shoes have dried you can re-apply a waterproof spray for extra protection.
