“WhatsApp 'hi' on 9737309595 to receive CityShor updates.” Calling all sneaker fans! We have some really aesthetic pairs of shoes from a homegrown brand of Pune which is definitely here to stay. Tired of looking for sneakers in neutral colors? SVED lets you find a pair for yourself that checks all the marks on the list.
The idea for SVED was born in London, where the founder, Ved Dhadphale was learning the art of making English Welted Shoes with Carre-Ducker. He came in touch with a lot of independent brands at the Cockpit Arts where the classes were being held. This was his first interaction with people taking control of every little aspect of their product to make it as exclusive and premium as possible. It was fairly obvious from then onwards - start a luxury leather brand in India for the urban crowd.
The Indian customer is usually trapped in the middle of poor quality low-priced shoes and extremely costly high-end shoes. SVED aims at pulling them out of this dilemma and offering a high-end leather sneaker at a fair price. The mantra is simple - highest quality raw materials, solid robust construction and classic designs.
What sets the SVED sneaker apart is the stitch down construction (upper is stitched down to the sole instead of just pasting it) the leather and the Italian soles. They focus on two key aspects in the shoes, the breathability for which the sneakers ventilate due to the leather and keep dampness and heat at bay. They also focus on the wearable factor wherein they vouch that you can wear them for more than 12-14 hours without foot fatigue.
So what are you waiting for? You honestly need to check out a pair of these stately shoes and maybe own a pair as well!

Located on the main road of Palolem, Bunti, a unique space displaying home and fashion accessories is a haven for all tourists. This shopping paradise is located inside a pretty hut where all kinds of goods that are hand-made, sustainable and up cycled are sold. Goa sees many tourists flocking every year, and most people love Goa because apart from being a holiday wormhole, it is also probably the best place to indulge in some guilt-free shopping. Bunti is situated in Palolem, a renowned beach in South Goa, and it showcases a variety of products adorning western style with an influence of Indian style techniques and textiles.
Up the happiness quotient at this pretty little store by looking at their lovely spread of apparels, jewellery and home accessories, all celebrating India’s rich tradition of handicrafts and modern day styles, thus creating a blend of cultural diversity. Bunti was started by Hannah and Ankey, a couple from England who had been visiting Goa regularly in the past and Hannah has her own store in England, still. Being already working with a lot of artisans from India, in January 2013 Bunti was opened to feature diverse collection of Indian handicrafts and accessories made by the talented local artisans.
Bunti offers a selection of bohemian clothing, jewellery and home furnishing, vintage fabrics and textiles, most of which are hand-picked from across India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. The envious collection at the store will make it difficult for the customers to walk out empty-handed. They sell goods that have been up cycled, made by talented artists some featuring traditional hand block printing while some are hand spun handloom, they offer goods that you can treasure. Bunti is many things, but mostly it is a wonderful world where modernity and ethnicity meet.
