Radical Yes 'The Awakening' - Cheetah Pony AW17



Our best selling Moccasin silhouette is back! Designed for the days when you want to wear your Ugg Boots out, but need to maintain your fashion dignity, our AW17 Awakening silhouette features a too-cute-to-boot double-ended tassel detail for the ultimate radical twist. Lined with baby-blanket pile wool for toasty added comfort.


Featuring radical classic True Cheetah Pony Hair on the upper, these neutral booties showcase intentionally oversized turmeric and musk tassels attached with antique bronze hardware. And this is all before you slip your foot inside, where you'll discover the extraordinarily agreeable cream blanket lining - designed for optimum warmth this winter. 


We love pairing this timeless print with other earthy neutrals - think denim, navy and charcoal tones. Try them with an ankle grazing coat for the winter months or for something a little lighter we love to see them accenting clash-happy winter prints in burgundy and mustard hues for a 70s mood. Also perfect with pinstripe button down shirts and high waisted anything for a more polished winter look.

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 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 leather upper / textile lined product so like all leather shoes will have around 6 - 8% stretch on wearing depending on the amount of pressure applied to the upper. 


Our Ponyhair Leather is made from calf skin - a radical material, but one that is delicate and will naturally wear over time. As with all our shoes, a water proof protective spray (we recommend and sell Waproo)  will help give longer life to your shoes and prevent damage from water and dirt.

Being a natural hair the upper is water resistant however to prolong the life of these toe tappers we recommend you do not wear in super bad weather. Also be careful of abrasion / rubbing of the upper. For instance be careful of wear at the heel when driving, wear at the sides when crossing legs over denim and also rubbing on bike pedals. 

For maintenance / or if your toe tappers get wet, let then dry and then either brush or wipe smoothly following the natural direction of the hair with a damp cloth. Try to avoid soaking or saturating the shoes when cleaning as too much water can be damaging. Use a hard plastic brush to remove dirt and keep the hair looking soft, fluffy and radical. We recommend and sell Waproo hard brushes brushes for this.
