What attracted me to Vessi were the clean styles. I don't usually like wearing shoes that are branded so heavily with a logo/name. Vessi shoes were exactly the kind of shoes I was looking for.
I made a purchase online for the shoes, and realized days later that I had an employee discount from where I worked. I quickly emailed them as soon as I noticed, and they were able to rectify the situation within minutes. Vessi is the most responsive company I have ever dealt with.
Although I haven't received the shoes yet, I haven't been disappointed with the brand thus far.
Will definitely recommend this brand to my friends and family.

Waterproof is great. But it is not breathable, especially in a warm or summer day.

Love the shoes!!! They are exactly as advertised. I took these for a trip specifically to Prague, Budapest, Germany, and Poland. Walking Tours, Hiking in Germany, Castle Tours. They held up great. Nothing negative to say!!

Nope, sorry, these are pure junk! I purchased these shoes before going to Singapore thinking they'd be a great alternative to boots when it rained. Unfortunately, they were so unbelievably uncomfortable, I actually got blisters on the bottom of my feet. They're not very supportive, and regardless of their claims of breath-ability, my feet overheated and smelled terrible after just a few hours of use.
Since I live in rainy Vancouver, I didn't want to give up on the shoes so easily. I thought replacing the insoles with something to help absorb impact might increase the comfort, but that was just more money flushed down the toilet... The last straw was when the water resistant function disappeared altogether. Had really high hopes for these shoes, and wanted to support a small, local company, but these were beyond disappointing. Going forward, I'll be spending less money on sweatshop goods elsewhere.

My Vessi shoes worked perfectly - they have stayed 100% waterproof for over a year now, and I use them almost every day. Perfect shoes for casual wear in any place with rainy weather.

I’ve been wearing my shoes almost everyday even when it doesn’t rain! Wore them a couple days ago in the torrential rain when walking my pup and my feet were the only thing that was dry! They also feel like I’m wearing socks which is the best part! ( if I can even pick a best part) please please make vessis for my pup! She hates wearing her rainboots!

I would have rated these shoes a 5/5 if the waterproof feature did not wear off, and also if they didn't start stinking so badly.
I wore these shoes for 9 months with hardly any problems but on the 10th month, the waterproof feature seemed to wear off, and the shoes started to smell real bad. Oh, and about 6 months in, the soles kept sticking to my feet when I'd try to take them out of the shoes. It is no different than any other shoe now. :(
I bought the city scapes.

I really, REALLY, **REALLY** want to love these shoes! They're comfy, they're light, the nonslip aspect works, and they definitely repel water better than regular sneakers. But they're definitely NOT waterproof. I'm a dog groomer and bought them because they seem ideal for my profession, my feet get splashed with water constantly through the day. I've bought two pairs within the past year and both had the same problem. Once they get wet, they quickly soak through the whole shoe. I've had multiple instances where water splashes on my foot and I can FEEL it seeping into the shoe. Within a few months they reek so badly that I'm actually embarrassed, and that's while they're still on my feet. The second pair I bought started falling apart within just a few months. I only ever wear them to work so the fact that BOTH pairs have degraded so much within a short time when other shoes have lasted me at least a year (and at a lower cost...)
Maybe I'm unlucky and got two defective pairs in a row? Either way, I'm so disappointed. I want to try again with another pair but I really don't want to chance spending another $100+ on shoes that won't last more than a couple months...

An amazing experience with Vessi's customer service!
I am so impressed with the pleasant and efficient service from Lesley, a friendly staff of Vessi to help return my white shoes to midnight black color. The return and exchange process was clean, easy to follow to get a return label printed for shipping. So happy too that it's a Canadian company. Look forward to get my exchange soon. All the best and thank you.

I bought these shoes in spring and were happy with the waterproof feature but was very disappointed with its thin soles and poor treads. They are very slippery and I can feel rocks and pebbles on casual dog walking trails. So I decided to just wear them occasionally on rainy days when i am walking on flat surface only. But now only after 5 months, the shoes are no longer waterproof and the treads are worn out despite their infrequent use! I find the advertisement photos of vessi shoes being worn in the mountains or claim as all season wear to be very deceiving since they are obviously unsuitable for easy trails, let alone hiking, and don't last even a full year. Consumers can definitely find better quality waterproof shoes for less price than Vessi.

We have ordered two pairs of shoes and I have sent them an email two times without getting an answer!!
We were waiting our new pair of shoes for so long and we were really really excited when they were finally here less than a month ago!i did wear them about 10-12 times and my friend did even less. Unfortunately after a 7-10’ walk under light rain in Amsterdam our feet were wet! Honestly it wasn’t sooo bad but we couldn’t wear them afterwards. And most importantly we bought something that specifically says it is waterproof and for every day for 129d and after only a few times and during the first waterproof test it just didn’t work!This is really inconvenient and before I bother the support team i did go back to the website.I thought there were probably small letters that I didn’t read and after 5’ in light rain they start soaking!But it is stated that you will not find other shoes like that, there is no coating, there are completely waterproof etc! Well...are they? Especially with this support team you can’t find someone to assist you!please don’t answer me to send an email if I have further questions,as you know they will noooot respond to the emails!

Great shoes and great customer service! Highly recommend.
These are honestly the best waterproof shoes I have ever used and they look great too!

My review is strictly about customer service right now. Once I get my shoes I will review them. I used the chat feature to find out about availability and get quick responses about the shoes I was interested in. Next I placed an order and when I realized I had made a mistake, I contacted customer service and they fixed my error immediately. Great customer service! Hope I enjoy the shoes as much.

Love my Vessis! They fit like a glove and feel like my feet are being cuddled by clouds all day. Perfect for places that experience lots of rain throughout the year, and even in the summer for nature adventures. They truly do keep your feet nice and dry! Since having Vessis I no longer need to bust out my big, clunky and heavy rain boots on rainy days.

Love my Vessi's! I've had them for nearly a year and they are still in great condition. We live in a rainy city, so with all the rain they've endured, my feet are still dry! There was even one time that I was out in the pouring rain for 5+ hours - everything else was wet, but my feet were dry! Replace those rainboots now.

I love Vessi’s. Perfect for when I walk my dog in all terrains and weather conditions. Also, they are one of my most comfortable pair of shoes I own! I recommend this product to any person who loves to keep their feet dry in the rain!

We tried out our shoes the first time and they worked like a charm! 2 months later, they are still amazing!!!!

I love my Vessi's. I had waterproof shoes in the past but they are clunky and not breathable at all. Now I'm on my second pair of Vessí's and use them every day. I only wish there were more colors to choose from. :)

I bought the Vessi Everyday in black hoping to wear it to work in the hospital. The shoes arrived super quick which was nice (+1 star) so I tried them on and... they're really uncomfortable. If I knew that the upper out-soles were so wide (imagine gothic duck feet) I wouldn't have bought them. This might be why Vessi doesn't have any photos of the shoes from a birds-eye view (we're all learning about scammers today). Besides the fact that they were more hideous than the shoes I currently wear for work, I had trouble walking with out-soles in that width. On top of that, the insoles don't offer the same support like other fashion sneakers like Adidas do. Lastly, I felt the opening of the shoes scraping against my ankles, which I suppose is an issue resolved with using my ankle skin to smooth out the imperfections.
Yeah, I really couldn't keep these shoes. I made sure to follow the qualifications for a return in their return policy, but my return was rejected because "[my] shoes were reported to show signs of wear, and were not in the condition specified in [their] return requirements, and [they] won't be able to process [my] return because the shoes cannot be restocked," so now I have to keep my gangrenous duck feet shoes. I tried them on for no more than fifteen minutes, at home, in a cool and dry indoor environment. I'm waiting to see how badly I wrecked them in the 15 minutes I had them on.
I really wanted to like these shoes because I thought the color (all black), the waterproof-ness, and the flexibility would be perfect for healthcare work but now I just feel scammed.

I had ordered a pair of Vessi's and realized I no longer needed them. The customer service representative replied to my email within the hour! It was quick and efficient. No other company has responded this well. Absolutely astonished!

I have only had my shoes for one week so I cannot comment on their durability.
What I can say is that I have never had a shoe before that is so difficult to put on!
Really, it is a major struggle. I have already broken one shoe horn trying to get them on.

This is exactly what we are looking for. The customer service is superb and they will treat you like a king! The shoes are super comfy and definitely worth it!
