We are so excited to present our latest square toe exploration in an architectural inspired V-Neck pump designed for ALL the things. Soft handle leather finished in a glove like construction, these are the all-purpose everyday toe tappers you have been waiting for.
Following on from the squared toe 'Selkie' Chelsea boot silhouette we developed for AW19, we wanted to explore other ways we could execute the sharpness of this last in a look for Spring. The Utopia square toe pump is the result and we think it is seriously radical. Featuring a throughly modern 3/4 exposed rand through the heel (which means the sole edge extends away from the upper itself), the cool square lines of the toe are repeated through the sculpting of the heel cap which shows architectural inspired curves. It really deserves a lot of description because it is highly technical and so well executed thanks to our new, extremely talented factory partner Mipiaci.
The upper has also been carefully considered, finished with a centre seam pleat through the front vamp that works to bring the whole shoe together through the front and create interest over the toe in a way that ensures the squareness is 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 is not overly narrow at all.The square toe last changes the proportions visually however because we have used a very unstructured upper - without 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.
This experimental silhouette is stunning in simple black leather. This is a soft handle cow leather that has just the right amount of sheen to feel polished. Lined with Natural tan colour leather and finished with a solid painted resin outsole in caramel tone designed 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 weekday togetherness. The shoes you need to take you from work to after work events in a snap. The shoes you can wear with an oversized manstyle shirt, cropped blazer and denims and feel really polished in. But as the shoes came to life we also realised these would be the shoes you could just as easy wear with a kaftan inspired dress at the weekend and feel kind of 70s relaxed and retro in. Executed in black we will be playing with all the proportions and we promise will be the easiest flat shoes to match with all your moods - ever.
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.
