Hi Vessi Family,

Greetings from Taiwan!

This past week has been very exciting as we finalize the last details in preparation to ship out the first batch of Vessi's!

Earlier this week, we landed in Taiwan and went to visit all our manufacturing partners again in preparation for shipping. Fun fact, there are over 8 factories altogether working on different components for each shoe and a couple more for waterproof testing :)

After all the visits, we're glad to say, all the factories, shoe components, and testing are looking really good. We've given the go-ahead for...SHIPPING!

We are expecting to start shipping this coming Monday!!

We will start shipping orders in small batches and transition to full-scale shipping soon after. Thank you all so much for your patience and support in coming on our shoe journey with us. We are so excited for you to receive your Vessi's!! We've been wearing ours this entire trip and we are loving them!

PS. We're sharing our journey on social media through Instagram so follow us @VessiFootwear for a little behind the scenes at Vessi Production Co.

Here's a little clip of one of our assembly lines :)

      Hello Nathan, yes the WIIVV vouchers for Vessi + Wiivv combo pledges have gone out. They were emailed to your @live.com email that you used to back a few weeks ago.

      If you cannot find it or did not receive one I apologize on behalf of WIIVV. You can simply send them an email at care@wiivv.com and they should be able to provide you one.

      If you need more assistance from my end. Please message us and we will help you out.

      Thank you Nathan!

      Can't wait to present my pair to friends where I can walk freely in the rain. Would the shoes be shipped from Taiwan directly? I'm so excited that you guys are keeping up with the schedules despite multiple partnerships at different plants. Thumbs up and hope to catch the team in Taipei :)

      Hello Dawne, great to hear from you : ) Thanks for asking and for the incredibly nice gesture.

      We are figuring out our schedule, our timetable is a bit swamped, full of tasks in Taiwan.

      We were in Taipei in the morning our plane landed at 6am for a few hours then headed down south.
