The shape is a neat, streamlined derby with splice panel detail. Features 4 eyelet lace holes and our signature pull tab at the heel for ease.
Available in a range of fresh and limited edition palettes (as always), these jazz style shoes are made with function and everyday wear in mind. Perfect for moving you through your day and ideal for cycling, the studio and the dance floor. Things we think are quite Radical, Yes!
Crafted from a high quality, fine nap calf hair, our Dalmatian Pony print looks and feels sublime to the touch. Lined in a luxe creamy velvet (helping to ease that seasonal transition), they feature a complimentary caramel outsole, cream laces and antique brass eyelets.
HOW TO WEAR
With their intentionally low-cut upper, these beauties are ideal paired with utilitarian-inspired outfits designed to get the most out of your day. For mornings spent cycling and busy afternoons completing errands, these toe tappers are perfectly paired with washed denim overalls and a simple T. For occasions that require a little more panache, we do as the Parisians do and pair with pinstripe ankle length pants and an oversized blazer for enduring-cool.
Leather Upper / Textile Lining / Plant Rubber Sole
Made responsibly in China in small batch quantities by our long-term boutique manufacturing partner. Learn more about our maker and see the full behind-the-scenes from our makers workshop here
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 email@example.com for help before you place your order.
WILL THEY STRETCH?
Yes. This is a leather upper / textile lined product so will stretch around 5 - 8% on wearing depending on the amount of pressure applied to the upper. The velvet lining makes them delicious to wear without socks, even in winter!
HOW TO LOVE THEM
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.
