Our Story

A New Way to Think About Water

In a world where most people complain about the rain, we believe there’s a bright side to wet weather.

Vessi started as a way to get people out in the world on rainy days. But it didn’t take us long to realize that once you’re out there, that’s when the real magic happens. Water, whether falling from the sky or running by your feet, has the power to spark joy and connect us to the moment.

Our Mission

We’re on a mission to make getting outside and experiencing the magic of water easier and more joyful.

How We Do It

We create 100% waterproof shoes so you can feel confident, connected, and ready to #welcomethewater. But our products do more than let you thrive in water — they help support organizations that protect and provide it.

Meet the Founders

We’re three Vancouverites who, after a few too many wet socks and rain checks, set out to create a totally waterproof sneaker that looked and felt anything but. What we ended up with was much more than a shoe, but a community focused on celebrating water and giving back.

If you’d rather walk through a puddle than around it, we’ll get along fine.

—  Andy, Tony, Mikaella

Are Vessis actually 100% waterproof?

Yup - and it's not a coating!

We developed a patented knit material with an integrated layer that allows the sweat and heat escape so your feet can breathe, but still keep all the elements out. Puddles beware! 

How does it work?

With a million tiny holes in the membrane layer, water in vapour form (sweat) and heat can pass through the tiny holes but water molecules are too large to pass. This means the waterproofing will last the lifespan of your shoes... Unless of course you create a larger hole in the material!

What is your exchange and warranty policy?

Our 365-Day Guarantee.

We want you and your Vessis to be together forever. That's why we stand behind our quality and promise. All Vessis come with a 1 year warranty on any manufacturer defects.

That said, if you think your Vessis are acting up please don't hesitate to reach and let us know. We’re more than happy to reach out and see what we can do for you!
