I am an oddity: I walk to work, there and back, five days a week all year long. Even though I live in Winnipeg, Manitoba, where it can be as low as minus 40 degrees in the winter and 35 degrees in the summer. Appropriate footwear is a big deal and I am delighted to have found the perfect brand: Vessi.
I received Vessis in exchange for this review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Vessis are waterproof
I received my Vessis in April, which was perfect: everywhere in the northern hemisphere, spring is in full bloom but in the Canadian Prairies, we have at least one snowstorm during the month of April. That’s when I tried my Chelsea for the first time: fresh powder (five inches of snow fell on Easter week-end). The timing was perfect and yet, my feet stayed dried.
Vessi shoes are made from Dyma-tex material, which keeps moisture away. It works with snow, but also with the dreaded slush period that is otherwise known as spring in Canada and through puddles of water. It’s amazing. I wear my Weekend Vessis almost every day – just in case it rains (and it rarely rains in Winnipeg, I just like them too much).
Vessis are light
I was tired of heavy winter boots that you have to drag at every step. But here came the Weekend Chelsea. I can actually walk without any trouble, as the shoes are so light. No blisters, no need to “break” the shoes, I wore both pairs right out of the box.
I have worn my Weekend Vessis recently on a day trip, from 7 in the morning to 10 p.m. It’s like walking on little clouds, you just forget they are there.
Vessis are cute
There are nine models of Vessis to choose from, all being the perfect balance of casual and formal, from going to the office from drinks to a walk or time in nature. You can have three lives in a day without changing shoes. They are versatile, come in a variety of colours, they go with every outfit.
