Like all our Dharma loafers, this is a classic man-style driving shoe cut, constructed with minimal internal facings to create a very soft, malleable finish. Gentle rise through the front vamp finished with comfort pull tab at the back.The feeling is very unstructured and almost slipper like.
Running 1/2 size small. We recommend going up a size. Especially runs firm through the front width but will stretch with wear. If you have a wider set foot we recommend going up a size. A trick to remember when trying for the first time is to take out the inner sole, use a shoe horn to glide your foot in. This will help stretch the material comfortably to your foot shape. Then you can take your foot out and replace the inner sole and try the shoe again. You should find your fit fits in. The fit without the inner sole is how the shoe will fit once worn in.
Partially inspired by a Nick-Cave-the-artist-dancing-pony installation combined with the eclecticism of chinois lounge dressing, these shoes are so statement we generally keep the outfit monochrome. Think all black everything - denims, and suit pants, or as seen here with longer line dresses. Brilliant with Bomber jackets to juxtapose the lounge mood and also ace with a trusty dust jacket and cropped sailor pants. We even love adding a pinstripe to add on another dimension of pattern for even more intentional clashing magic.

Yes. This is a leather upper / shearling lined product so like all leather shoes will have around 8 - 10% stretch on wearing depending on the amount of pressure applied to the upper.
This is high quality textile upper so it does need care.
At Radical Yes! we love using textiles for our shoes. Fabric is comfortable and lets us to go wild with chambrays, prints and tapestries, but it does need a bit of care to stay looking radical.
When your shoes are shiny and new, we suggest using a stain and water-resistant spray to keep them looking in tip top shape and keep dirt and water from messing them up. We recommend “Waproo Water and Stain Protector”.
Excessive exposure to water is not your fabric shoes friend, it can cause the colours to run and can change the shape of the shoes so check the weather and avoid those puddles.
To clean fabric toe tappers, use a soft towel and a speciality fabric cleaning product and aim for an all over clean as spot cleaning can produce uneven patches.
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.
We only ship within Australia & New Zealand to reduce the carbon footprint of our products.
