Imagine if your favorite socks, your winterized boots, and your cool looking sneakers could have a shoe-baby...unfortunately they can't, because they're inanimate. So we created Vessi's, our own shoe-baby developed through years of R&D. Our shoe-baby functions like a boot, fits like a sock, but looks like a sneaker.
The most comfortable shoes you can wear all year round. They're so light that when you slip them on, you'll forget you were even wearing them. That is, until you start looking for Rain, Snow, Mud, and Sand to stomp through - showing your friends how much better your Vessi's are than their pre-evolved shoe. They're built for every season. Take them travelling around the world or just kick back and have a coffee - cause that's cool too.
What's worse than wet, soggy socks? Wet soggy socks and sand in your shoes.. Vessi's keeps the sand out while making sure your feet still get to breathe!
100% waterproof, very breathable and really patented - You won't find another shoe like this on the world. Our technology is a permanent integrated within the knit of your Vessi's - keeping the water out but allowing your feet to breathe. On top of that, we added a water repellent layer to allow dirt, sand or water to bead right off. From summer dew to winter slush, Vessi's keep your protected.
Ever step in something unfortunate and think to yourself..... sh*T... Well Vessi's make cleaning your shoes even easier. No more napkins or waiting for your shoes to dry. Just rinse the dirt off your shoes with some water and you're good to go! Our added layer of water-resistant coating allows dirt or mud to slip right off your shoes.
Weighing in at just 6.7 oz. Vessi's are the lightest 100% waterproof shoes in the world. The perfect pair to wear just about anywhere. Pack your Vessi's get ready to take on the world.
Unlike rubber boots that trap the sweat and heat in, our shoes breathe. Our waterproofing membrane is made up of nano sized pores that are too small for water drops but large enough for sweat and heat to pass through. This ensures that your feet are still able to breathe while keeping the water out. Totally waterproof, extremely breathable.
Because going sockless is a thing now! We've added antimicrobial insoles into every Vessi to keep your feet feeling and smelling fresh all day long. With our added breathability, you won't have to worry about your feet getting sweaty.
Designed to hug your foot like a sock, leaving your feet feeling happy all day. You'll never want to take them off. To top that off, our insoles are made with a new puffy cloud-like foam, engineered to provide maximum cushioning and rebound.
Our mantra at Vessi is style and practicality. Look good, feel good. All of our Vessi’s are 100% vegan friendly and made with sustainability in mind.
Our patented waterproof and breathable all weather technology is directly integrated in our knitted uppers. This creates an extremely lightweight and agile construction designed to give you all the benefits of a technical boot packed into the style of shoe you want to wear.
The Stretch Knit Layer - Provides 4-way stretch on it's knitted water repellent surface.
Nano-Filtering Membrane - Our proprietary layer with Nano-sized pores too small for water molecules to pass, but large enough for heat and sweat to pass through. Designed to maintain its nano-structure while still allowing for extreme stretch and flexibility.
Our Dual Climate Dyma-tex Layer is designed to keep your feet warm in the winter and cool during the summer. Dyma-tex has micro-air pockets that regulate your foots temperature to the outside climate. The insulating air pockets drastically increase the sweat and heat transfer away from you feet leaving you feeling dry all day.
Our VZero midsoles delivers all day comfort with additional energy return with each stride. It's ultra-lightweight composition paired with it's bounciness, gives you the feeling that you’re walking on clouds.
Last year we set out to revolutionize what a sneaker should be. With your support and feedback we were able to create a shoe designed by you, for you. No more choosing between comfort and functionality. Why can’t we have both?
Risks and challenges
Last year, we launched our first Kickstarter campaign and with your help, we were able to make it a success! We've gone through the process of production and fulfillment with Vessi 1.0 and we definitely learned a lot! This time around, we've got our logistics, manufacturing and customer service tools dialed in. We've also got a few new team members to help us along the way. Over the past year, our team has been working closely with our manufacturers and logistics partners, to ensure that we get your new Vessi's out as soon as possible with no delays. With that being said, we cannot control everything, in any case of delays we promise to communicate with transparency and work around the clock to ensure your expectations are met!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
