I purchased my first pair of vessis back in March, and have worn them constantly for the past several months. Rain, snow, slush and sunshine have yet to slow down me down in my vessis. I have wore them walking on the beach, hiking and running errands. They are super comfy, quick to put on (even though they are the “everyday” sneakers they are still slip on!) and clean off really easy. All you need to do is run them over with the hose or a damp cloth and they’re good as new. I have recently purchased two more pairs as Christmas gifts and plan on purchasing again for myself. Absolutely love how they are a Canadian company and eco-friendly. If you are debating whether to buy vessis or not..do it! They are worth the investment and hold up SO much better than other name brand sneakers (plus they’re waterproof).
