Have you ever stepped in a puddle or left your house not realizing how bad the rain would get? Come home with soaked socks and hate the feeling? I think it happens so frequently in Canada they have a word for it called a “soaker”. Well you no longer have to wear rain boots to stay comfortable and dry all day with Vessi Footwear, the world’s first 100% waterproof knit shoes.
The Technology – It’s Not a Coating
Unlike sprays you may see that offer a texture of waterproof protection, Vessi uses patented Flash Knit which will keep water out for the entire lifetime of the shoe. This Flash Knit Upper is composed of three distinct functional layers.
The Nano-Filtering Membraneand 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 Layerof 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 Liningis designed to mimic the feeling of wearing socks. It is soft to the touch and form-fitting.
