Soft handle leather finished in a glove like construction, these are the all purpose everyday toe tappers you have been waiting for.
The upper has been carefully considered, finished with a centre seam pleat through the front vamp that works to bring the whole shoe together through the front and create interest over the toe in a way that ensures the squareness is just the right amount of feminine - making them absolutely everyday wearable. An art shoe and true object of beauty we really love this new style.
Running true to fit and despite it's appearance is not overly narrow at all.The square toe last changes the proportions visually however because we have used a very unstructured upper - without stiffeners and heavy backings, the fit is basically glove like on the foot and will mold to the shape of your foot very easily. Length is true to fit.You can check out our size guide here.
We couldn't think of a cooler incarnation than using this colour in this shape - This Mango colour is not quite red-not-quite-orange, and best described as that beautiful warm colour a Kensington Pride mango goes when it's ready to be eaten! If you have been following our brand for a while you will know that we love a red shoe and for Spring we wanted to get back to the more retro, 70s vibe warm orange/red hues we have explored in the past. We love how joyful this colour is and despite it's bright appearance it actually remains very wearable looking particularly fresh with Navy, Charcoal and darker garments up top. Lined with Natural tan colour leather and finished with a solid painted resin outsole in caramel tone designed to be both modern and durable. Completed with delicate 'This is Radical Yes' ribbon label as a talisman and a reminder to bring all the YES to your day.
When we were designing this shoe we were thinking about weekday togetherness. The shoes you need to take you from work to after work events in a snap. The shoes you can wear with an oversized manstyle shirt, cropped blazer and denims and feel really polished in. But as the shoes came to life we also realised these would be the shoes you could just as easy wear with a kaftan inspired dress at the weekend and feel kind of 70s relaxed and retro in. Executed in this green palette we will be playing with all the proportions and we promise will be the easiest flat shoes to match with all your moods - ever.

Rad friends this is a very 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 "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.
