Radical Yes 'Dharma' - Gold Velvet

Sale

THE STYLE

In Yogic terms, Dharma means ‘the intrinsic nature of a thing’. For instance the dharma of sugar is sweetness. We named this manstyle inspired slipper in a similar vein and reference to our range. With our flat shoes only approach, our aesthetic is intrinsically manstyle and ‘loungey’ and so we arrived at the name from that place.

For this silhouette the upper has been constructed without internal facings to create a very soft, malleable finish. The upper is very unstructured and slipper like – all the better for slipping on amidst piles of books and an open fire. 

THE COLOUR

Nothing says antique bookstores and classic literature like the gold palette found in hand-inscribed lettering, foil edging and the brass lighting used to illuminate creaky shop floors. Here in these Dharma beauties, we draw the warmth and ambience that emanates with each flick of a page to present this Gold Velvet upper, designed for chilly Winter studio days and evening poetry readings. Lined in glorious navy and gold jacquard, there's no doubt these toe tappers will be your new winter best friend.

HOW TO WEAR

As comfortable as an indoor slipper, but built for the world outside, we will be wearing these luxe beauties with relaxed wide leg pants and chunky oversized knits during the day, and hitting them up with layered silk everything for a pagan inspired evening twist. The golden news is for such a regal palette, this colour is in fact a surprisingly neutral tone; perfectly complimentary to all skin shades.

THE FIT

This style is running a little smaller than previous production due to the way the velvet has made up in production. Based on this we strongly recommend using the chart below to check your size even if you have purchased this silhouette before. 




  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 synthetic textile upper / blended textile lined product so will stretch around 5 - 7% on wearing depending on the amount of pressure applied to the upper. 

HOW TO LOVE THEM

For optimum care, we recommend you spray your new shoes with "Waproo Waterproofer" to protect them from unexpected showers.
