So VAPH Shoes is this all-leather, soft, soft, soft, beautifully handcrafted footwear brand that we instantaneously fell head-over-heel (literally) for from the moment they stepped into our lives! (And probably changed it Shereen: "Of course, when we saw the shoes online, and when Harish sent us the look book presentation, everything looked so lovely. What came next was such a delight, because we had no idea what was in those beautifully packed turquoise boxes! I opened a box called 'Victoria-Black' and fell in love instantly! - MIND = BLOWN! "THEY'RE SO SOFT!!!!" I literally screamed it out! My first thought; Kayaan is going to flip out! And, rightfully enough, because I know her so well, she just melted when she opened that pretty blue box! - They're the most comfortable pair of shoes I have worn in a while, and if you know me, you also know that I'm not a huge fan of flat shoes, but these beauties have just set the tone for a long term collaboration with me feet, and I'm so glad they found us! Harish, VAPH has managed to convert me to flat shoes!" Kayaan: "Ok, first off, straight up, anything leather, well constructed and simply beautiful is a win (specially shoes)! And, when the most beautiful pair is right in your face, you just want to cry! Yes! THAT HAPPENED! - So there we were, on the phone discussing how the 'VAPH' package had arrived, and how Shereen had opened a box and totally melted, and that was that (for the time being)! Then came that glorious day (the day the pictures were taken), when Shereen got a cardboard box full of these beautiful turquoise boxes, and I took my pick, blindly, of course, and there they were! this beautiful pair of blue oxfords just sitting pretty! - (Shereen was right - I FLIPPED OUT!). Much to mu excitement of just looking at them, what came next was probably the highlight of my unboxing these beauties - I touched the leather, and there was this huge smile on my face! I was quick to put my foot into one, and i DIED! "Makkhannnnn!!!" (butter) I exclaimed - I couldn't contain the excitement! I didn't want to take them off like EVER, and the rest is (happy feet) history! - Harish, they're PERFECTION! Thankyou!"
