If you’re in the market for some solid waterproof sneakers in Vancouver – we hear you, and we’ve got some good news. Vessi’s first-ever brick-and-mortar location is now officially open to the public, which means your days playing the guessing game on sizing and fit are over!

This beloved local brand has a new storefront at Metropolis in Metrotown, and it opened on Thursday, November 10th. No more wet socks this fall or winter!

The brand

One of the fastest-growing sneaker companies in North America, Vessi is focused on creating everyday wear that gets people out there – come rain or shine. We can definitely appreciate that given the stormy nature of our city.
