Radical Yes x Bianca Mavrick 'Boundless' - Charcoal Suede

THE COLLABORATION 

Introducing the limited edition Half Moon "Lace Candy" collection, the result of our most recent collaboration with Brisbane based Jeweller Bianca Mavrick.

Maintaining an active sculpture and contemporary jewellery practice, Bianca is best known for her distinctive range of earrings. It was a moment of radical serendipity when Bianca approached us with the idea of working together. We were part way through the creation of our latest silhouette, the multi-eyelet athletic 'Boundless' trainer and had been looking to create some kind of mystic talisman for this piece.

Inspired by Bianca's striking practice and our love of the other worldly, we created these magical half-moon resin pieces to thread through the laces and adorn dancing toes!  

THE STYLE

The latest style we have added to our classics range, 'Boundless' was inspired by classic athletic silhouettes. Featuring a thick rubber outsole and multi gunmetal eyelet detail; supreme care has been taken to ensure this hybrid trainer offers high comfort and durability. Amidst the design process, we paid close attention to the development of the double ridge detail at the sole edge, featuring a fine gauge stitch for additional sculptural interest.

THE COLOUR

In deep charcoal suede, the inky upper is paired beautifully with a jet black rubber outsole and matching laces. Chrome eyelets and fine dark leather lining culminate in sophisticated comfort. Understated yet detail rich, this quiet tonal palette accents the marbled nude and blush 'lacy candy' for an exquisite finish. 

HOW TO WEAR

Partnering our everyday luxe trainer with such a distinct point of interest, we were careful to ensure that the overall effect would comfortably slip into our daily uniform. In a nod to this collections sportive narrative, we love pairing these jewelled toe tappers with traditionally athletic silhouettes; pleated skirts, starched blouses and linen blazers.

THE FIT

As we have recently introduced a Size 35 to our sizing grid, our fits have changed slightly and are now inline with true European grading. Based on this we strongly recommend using the chart below to check your size.



  1. Stand on a ruler and measure your foot in CM (centimetres) from heel to toe.
  2. Find the closest measurement to your size against the chart above making sure your foot is within the stated length
  3. For example if your foot measures 22.2CM we would recommend you take a Size 37
  4. This is a general guide to our fits. If you are still unsure feel free to email us yes@radicalyes.com.au for help before you place your order. 

WILL THEY STRETCH?

Yes. This is a leather upper / leather lined product so like all leather shoes will have around 6 - 8% stretch on wearing depending on the amount of pressure applied to the upper. 

HOW TO LOVE THEM

We recommend waterproofing these toe tappers before wearing in the rain, and treating with an attitude of love and affection.

Suede is a beauty of a material we are particularly fond of. It is soft, comfortable and takes colour well so we can bring rich and vivid tones to your feet.

To prolong the life of your suede toe tappers, first treat with a protective spray to help repel water, dirt and stains.

If you do manage to stain your suede or nubuck shoes, use a suede cleaning block or a treatment product from your local shoe repairer. Once clean, use a suede brush to restore the lovely texture (or nap).
