Introducing 'Saturn Returns', our first new construction since Radical Yes! began in 2013. Inspired by the success of our 'Awakening' moccasin program and requests for a shoe with a thicker outsole and wider midsole, this chunky luxury trainer features a shearling upper for the ultimate example of style meets snug comfort. The thick white vulcanised rubber outsole offers natural spring, supported by the spongey, latex grade insole board. This shoe is all about lavish comfort. From the padded, leather lined tongue to the flat, athletic laces with gunmetal toggles - every detail is considered, functional, sophisticated.
It'd be difficult to argue for a combination more radical than black and white. Due to the lush shearling treatment featured here, the upper leather features a matte black finish and waxy handle that brings the leathers natural patina to the fore for a truly perfect effect. The crisp white outsole is the perfect contrast to black laces and gunmetal hardware so that the final look will step seamlessly onto your studio floor and out into the city streets.
HOW TO WEAR
As a staple palette and striking statement, these toe tappers will rarely be out of place. We love wearing this silhouette with big skirts and soft dresses, anything that radically juxtaposes the chunky, masculine approach with more feminine shapes. This winter, we'll be pairing these beauties with a long-line floral maxi dresses for warm evenings out or tailored denim overalls by day.

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.
- 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 email@example.com 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 more delicate than standard cow skin leathers and while it will serve you well to keep you warm, 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.
