As per your request! Leather upper, shearling (wool) lined and featuring our favourite plant rubber outsole these boots will sell fast!
The silhouette runs as a classic high top trainer, cut in 8-up lace count to ensure maximum ankle hugging proportions. Gentle internal padding through the throat, not to mention the fully lined wool inner for total winter wearability. If you have not tried these shoes before it is basically like wearing ugg boots without ruining your style credibility.
Cut slim through the ankle with a clean finished top-line for a refined silhouette and lasted with our durable, vulcanised plant rubber outsole for natural spring. Full leather removable athletic inner sole for heel and arch support comfort and also orthotic OK action. 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. This super wearable trainer epitomises the complimentary ideals of function and beauty that form the foundation of every Radical Yes collection.
Running true to fit. A little like ugg-boots, the shearling lining does relax with wear and 'soften down' to mould to your foot shape. You can check out our size guide here.
Gently buffed black cow leather upper gives a more polished finish to our black palettes this season and when framed by the natural gum coloured outsole creates a cool retro athletic feel. We are so excited this season to be using Australian Merino Wool lining for our shearling boots program and this year have picked a contrasting 80's inspired Biscuit colour across all the boots. Brushed gunmetal eyelets add to the monochromatic moodiness of the upper. All finished with matt black coloured flat cotton athletic laces compete with our signature metal toggles on the lace ends to prevent fraying.
It's worth noting the upper leather is a high quality thick-handle cow hide that has a natural wax finish (slightly buffed to give it shine) that will help to repel the weather and keep the feet super warm. The shearling lining is a second layer natural wool detail, meaning these boots are much thicker than previous incarnations of our shearling story.
We love to go utilitarian in our outfits with these beauties and tend to match them with lots of other textural moments of black - black knits, black wool coats and this season even black leather. We also enjoy pairing with more structured shell coats and puffer jackets belted at the waist to keep the overall silhouette feminine. There are obvious choices too - oversized knits and turtle-neck anythings that are great for casual Friday options. Also ace with ankle grazing cropped flares to show off the neat as a pin topline on these super radical shoes.

This is high quality leather upper so it does need care.
Leather is a wonderful material, breathable, durable and beautiful. But without a bit of love it can dry out and deteriorate.
For optimum care, we recommend and sell "Waproo Waterproofer" to protect them from unexpected showers. We recommend spraying monthly on the Full Moon and can send you a reminder if you sign up to our newsletter here.
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.
