Radical Yes 'Dharma' - Burgundy Velvet



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. 


This red wine palette, reminiscent of regional French Aristocracy is exactly the shade we want warming our toes as the temperature starts to drop. Lined in smoking slipper influence silken jacquard, these day-time slip-ons feature a lush burgundy velvet upper for ultimate grandpa-cool when stepping out this Winter. 


Wear these rich beauties out with structured flares and a fitted knit for cool daytime comfort or take a more literal approach with a silk kimono over ankle grazing shirt dresses for winter evening dates that transition from the cocktail lounge to living room lounge with total ease. These sophisticated slippers are the ultimate versatile accent for your winter wardrobe.

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. 


Yes. This is a textile upper / textile lined product so like all leather shoes will stretch around 5 - 7% on wearing depending on the amount of pressure applied to the upper. The jacquard lining makes them delicious to wear without socks, even in winter!


For optimum care, we recommend you spray your new shoes with "Waproo Waterproofer" to protect them from unexpected showers. They can be cleaned with a suede brush or soft damp cloth brushing in the same direction as the nap (toward the toes).
