As per your request! We've brought back our true white outsole from our very first iteration of our shearling lined Saturn Returns.
Leather upper, with Australian shearling (wool) lining, and featuring a true white outsole - made in our very own custom design! The outsole offers natural spring while the spongey, latex grade insole board ensures total comfort and support.
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.
As usual, these trainers include a full leather removable athletic inner sole for heel and arch support comfort. It's removable, so don't forget that this makes them orthotic compatible. But our absolute favourite part? While you can wear them with socks, you can also 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 (so they might feel a little firm at first). You can check out our size guide here.
A gently buffed cerise burgundy leather upper gives a more polished finish to our palettes this season, and when framed by the true white outsole creates a cool retro athletic feel. We are so excited to be using Australian Merino Wool lining again for our shearling boots program, and we welcome back last winter's contrasting 80's inspired Biscuit colour shearling across all the boots. Colour matched eyelets add to the monochromatic moodiness of the upper. All finished with matching cerise burgundy laces, and a pair of white contrasting laces so you can switch things up!
It's worth noting the upper leather is a high quality thick-handle leather 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 - chunky knits, oversize wool coats and plaid pants. 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.
