Hello Vessi Family, 

We've missed you and we're back with a few more exciting updates! We want to continuously thank you for your support and patience throughout this whole process. 

Exciting news! We had our first ever creative studio shoot last weekend and we are so excited to share how those turned out! Here's a little behind the scenes action just for you! Make sure to follow us on Instagram @vessifootwear for more behind the scenes look. 

Another exciting news! Our team is flying to our manufacturing partner in Taiwan this week! We are so excited to oversee the production of your Vessi's. This trip will really give us the chance to personally set up standard operating procedures for production, packaging, quality control, etc. We are most excited to see the full range of sizes scaled out in person. We've been receiving specific sample sizes but seeing the whole range of sizes and all the different shoes that everyone can enjoy will be an amazing moment and it's all thanks to you amazing backers : )

Through this visit, we aim to build an even better line of communication with our manufacturing partner so the entire process can be more seamless and we can better serve all you wonderful backers. We are also set to meet with our shipping partner DHL Express to make sure that you all get the best service with as many shipping notifications as possible.

We will try to take as many photos and videos as we can to so you can all follow along. 

In terms of timeline, we should start shipping out small test batches in a week and we will scale up the shipping/production once everything is optimized so we can give you all the best Vessi experience possible. We are looking to do full-scale shipping starting late April and we sincerely appreciate everyone's patience. We sincerely apologize that full-scale shipping will be a bit later than originally planned. That is our fault but we look to correct that as much as we can on the trip. 

Again, we thank you all very much for your support and patience. It's an honor that you all are on this journey with us. 

Much love, 

The Vessi Team

Super Straps: Relieve Backpack Strain & Improve Posture

When you throw your backpack on in the morning, it feels light. But over the course of the day, it starts to feel heavy — straining your shoulders, back and neck. SuperStraps is the world’s first and only backpack booster that instantly relieves shoulder and back tension + lifts 27 pounds of force off your neck. It activates in 1 second flat and acts like a super muscle, making your backpack actually feel lighter. Check out SuperStraps here

      Hi I was wondering if the paint in the photos stained the white shoes or not.

      Hello Dawne, great to hear from you here. Thank you for reaching out again. Your suggestion of the shoe name Ötzi is really cool, great historical approach to naming!

      We are going to a city near Taichung for the factory and are not sure if we will be in Taipei yet haha. But we can keep in touch and it would be an honour to get a group photo with awesome backers like you!

      Have a fantastic day : )

      Great that you guys are giving us a time on delivery. There're some projects that fail to do that most basic aspect and people are still waiting to receive their backed item almost a year after the initial fund date.

      So utterly looking forward to my new shoes!!
