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 with minimal internal facings to create a very soft, malleable finish. The upper is unstructured and with the velvet lined finish, almost slipper like in it's feeling on the foot.
Crafted from our now famous, softest handle Black Sheepskin leather and lined in perfect moss velvet, we created these toe tappers in response to many requests for a classic black loafer. Finished with black plant rubber outsole embossed with our signature 'Hasten Slowly' mantra on the sole as a reminder to take it easy.
HOW TO WEAR

Due to the velvet lining on this style we are finding this style is running around a 1/2 size smaller than previous production, especially in the girth measurement (around the arch of the foot). Based on this we strongly recommend using the chart below to check your size even if you have purchased this silhouette before.
- Stand on a ruler and measure your foot in CM (centimetres) from heel to toe.
- Find the closest measurement to your size against the chart above making sure your foot is within the stated length
- For example if your foot measures 22.2CM we would recommend you take a Size 37
- This is a general guide to our fits. If you are still unsure feel free to email us firstname.lastname@example.org for help before you place your order.
WILL THEY STRETCH?
Yes. This is a super soft handle leather upper / textile lined product so will stretch around 7 - 10% on wearing depending on the amount of pressure applied to the upper.
HOW TO LOVE THEM
Our signature Black Sheepskin leather is a wonderful material - super soft to touch and beautiful to wear as the upper will hold to the shape of your foot. This is a finer grain handle so it is important to note, without a bit of love the skin can dry out and deteriorate.
For optimum care, we recommend you spray your new shoes REGULARLY with "Waproo Waterproofer" to protect them from unexpected showers. Use the full moon as your guide for getting out the waterproofer.
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.
