Vessi Footwear is the World's First 100% Waterproof Knit Shoes. They fit, feel and perform like a regular shoe yet act like a waterproof boot. Our patented waterproof Flash Knit technology will keep your feet dry, even in wet weather conditions. Don’t compromise style for functionality, enjoy the best of both worlds with your new Vessi.
Vessi is the perfect companion for all your adventures, no matter where you go. The patented Flash Knit upper will keep 100% water out for the entire lifespan of the shoe. Never worry about getting cold wet toes and wet socks!
Puddle Proof and Easy To Clean. No need to avoid those puddles ever again. Our Flash Knit material allows for an easy cleaning process thanks to its hydrophobic treatment in addition to the waterproofing membrane.
Stylish and Comfortable. Designed with style and functionality in mind.
Breathable and Moisture Wicking. Unlike regular waterproof shoes, Vessi allows your feet to breathe, reducing sweat and odor build up.
Our patented Vessi Flash Knit Upper is composed of three distinct functional layers.
The Nano-Filtering Membrane and the heart of Vessi's upper is a waterproof and moisture-wicking layer that keeps your feet dry while allowing moisture from your sweat and body heat to escape the shoe. Being waterproof means that the area of your feet covered by Vessi shoes is completely impervious to water. This is not a coating and the waterproofing function will last the lifespan of the shoe.
The Stretch Knit Layer of the Vessi upper is a knitted layer composed of a blend of polyester and nylon. We chose this specific blend to create an elastic yet durable knit that stretches to the shape of your feet. This encourages you to move naturally.
The Comfort Lining is designed to mimic the feeling of wearing socks. It is soft to the touch and form-fitting.
Vessi will provide you with complete protection against water penetration while water repellent or resistant shoes just repel or resist water to a limited degree and will eventually start getting wet after a short period of time.
Traditional waterproof shoes tend to be stuffy and make your feet sweat and stink due to its lack of ability to regulate the dispersal of moisture. However, Vessi’s moisture-wicking technology regulates the dispersal of moisture thus reducing feet sweat and the buildup of odor.
In addition to Vessi’s knit features are it's ultra lightweight Vzero midsoles. The composition of these Vzero’s is designed to maximize energy return while providing flexibility and cushioning for every step. The outsole is enhanced with rubber treads for traction in all weather conditions. The sole’s hardness and density are optimized for a perfect balance of lightness and comfort.

Sizing Comparison | Vessi's sizing is similar to the fit of popular Nike running shoes.
Half Sizes | If you typically wear ½ sizes, we recommend sizing up for a more relaxed fit or sizing down for a snug fit.
Full Sizes | If you typically wear a full size, we recommend the same size for the best possible fit and comfort.
