Radical Yes 'Celestial Zip Bootie' - Black Shearling

THE STYLE

Direct from another planet, we introduce our new, out-of-this-world silhouette, 'Celestial Zip Bootie'. In a nod to our toasty, blanket lined styles of winters past, this shearling moon-boot has been designed to maximise warmth without compromising on style. Cut slim through the ankle for a fine fit, these booties have been developed for the every-day and the indoor-day. With this new style we also introduce a new, super thick, vulcanised rubber outsole and latex-grade insole board for natural spring, while the untreated shearling skin holds natural oils for a waxy finish. And our absolute favourite part? While you can wear them with socks, wear as-is and the shearling wool lining serves as a lush treatment for your toes. 

THE COLOUR

For high winter inspiration we nod to the nineties for a glimpse of grunge in it's most authentic form. For these matte black moon booties, we brought the decades pragmatic, utilitarian aesthetic into 2017 with an attention to quality and finish that is perfectly modern. Contrasting the midnight black upper and YKK best quality zipper is the thick white rubber outsole for a striking statement that demands attention.

HOW TO WEAR 

As always, we have no qualms wearing our black toe tappers with absolutely everything. In this case, we are definitely planning on revamping our nineties grunge dreams with luxury textiles and leathers. We love these beauties paired with our favourite lambswool lined denim jacket and bold printed skirt or for studio chic with a radical twist, tailored overalls over a bright blouse.

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 / 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. 

HOW TO LOVE THEM

Leather is a wonderful material, breathable, durable and beautiful. But without a bit of love it can dry out and deteriorate. 

It is important to note that the shearling finish is very delicate and while it will serve you well, it is a luxury skin that is not suitable for heavy rain days.

We recommend you spray your new shoes regularly with "Waproo Waterproofer" to protect them from unexpected showers.

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.
