Everyone knows there are 3 major stages to planning any trip.  

  1. You book your vacation days and star them on your calendar
  2. You gush about your plans to all your friends and family
  3. You freak out the night before because NOW you have to pack

It’s a tried and true ‘formula’ – but don’t worry. We found something to make it easier.

Vessi is a Canadian brand that designs 100% waterproof shoes that work with any style, for any weather. So naturally – they’re PERFECT for travelling.

As the weather gets warmer (and more temperamental) you want a shoe that you don’t have to worry about – especially if you’re road-tripping, backpacking, or whatever else you’re doing on vacation. 

Mud on the trail? No worries. 

Unexpected monsoon? Your toes are nice and dry.

Also, sneakers match everything. So, if you need to travel light, you can get away with only packing a single pair of shoes!

It’s about working smarter, not harder.

Here are all the reasons that Vessi sneakers make the perfect travel shoe.

5 Reasons Vessi’s Are Perfect for Travelling

Comfortable All Day 

Whether you’re trekking to Machu Picchu, or ambling through the glittering streets of Tokyo, you’re probably going to be doing a lot of walking. So you need shoes that are comfortable from the get-go. Vessi sneakers are light and cushiony so you’ll feel like you’re stepping on clouds the entire time. No blisters here, thank you. 

Easy to Slip On 

The only thing anyone likes about airport security is getting through it fast. Save yourself the awkward hop, skip, try-not-to-fall dance as you struggle to put your shoes back on while everyone breathes down your neck. Vessi’s easy-to-slip-on design keeps things speedy. No hopping required.

Super Lightweight 

An essential trait for the travel-savvy. Vessi sneakers are super lightweight which means they add nearly nothing to your carry-on weight limit. That means more room for outfits! Or souvenirs. Whichever.


Just in case you missed it the first time – Vessis are completely waterproof! We’re talking: you step in a puddle that turns out to be 2 inches deep, waterproof. Like, a scuba-suit for your foot, waterproof. Travelling is unexpected. You may have forgotten the umbrella at the hotel – but at least your feet will be dry when you get caught in that rainstorm!


If you’ve gone anywhere, even for a weekend, you know that versatility is the last-minute packer’s holy grail. Honestly, it’s ANY packer’s holy grail. Vessi has a ton of classic and versatile sneaker styles. They’ll match everything from your favourite jeans to that whimsical summer dress you packed just in case. Easy win, right?
