Vayarta Shoes are the perfect travel shoe

Packable, comfortable, and insanely chic, these unisex loafers are the one pair of shoes you need to take on your next trip.

Nothing has the potential to derail a good packing job like a pair of shoes. There’s only so much stuffing, squeezing, and—for lack of a better word—smushing they can take before you have to either give up and leave them at home, or take everything out of your suitcase and start over again. And while I love a great packing challenge, I love a packing solution more, which is why I was so excited to discover what just might be the perfect travel shoe.

Vayarta loafers are many things: Handmade (in ultra-soft leather by local artisans in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico), hand-dyed (in colors that range from soft blush to bright cobalt to basic black), and unisex. They’re also utterly simple, with clean lines and a minimalist design that manages to be eye-catching in its restraint. The shoes are the brainchild of Maryam Nassir Zadeh boutique co-founder Uday Kak and brand partners Sarada Ravindra and Andre Wiesmayr, who were looking to design an elevated version of the everyday loafer. What they’ve also done is create a travel shoe that eliminates the need for pretty much any other footwear.

You can pack them in your suitcase (the soft soles make them infinitely more smushable than your traditional loafers) or wear them on the plane, where their lightweight, slipper-like design will keep you comfortable no matter how long your flight is. And once you land, pair them with wide-leg trousers and a crisp button-down, cropped skinny jeans and a silk top, a floral summer dress, or your beach uniform of cutoffs and a striped tank—in other words, the extra outfits you were able to pack with all that free space.

Taking ethnic footwear to the modern level

The most beautiful thing about fashion is that we have fusion. Fashion can be influenced by many cultures and tailored and designed according to the designer and what they are trying to convey through their art and brand.

Thaqafah Shoes (our house brand) is on the paths to merge old world ethnic design with modern fashion. The brand also uses local craftsmen who have been in the shoe game since yay high, and provide for their families solely through this skill. The shoes are created using ancient techniques and handmade from start to finish which give them character and being.
