Founded in 2018 by three Vancouverites, Vessi is a direct-to-consumer footwear startup whose mission is to create products that move you forward, get you out there, and let you live YOUR best life.
It started with the question of whether a shoe can do it all. And through innovation, a little ingenuity, and thousands of kms clocked, Vessi was born
- giving us an everyday, anywhere kind of sneaker that you can wear in any weather.
We've become a team of #puddlehunters who love to innovate and rethink what a shoe could be, and we make sure we have a ton of fun doing just that.
We've got BIG plans for our future and as we continue to grow, we're always on the lookout for top talent to come along with us for the ride. If you're interested in joining the Vessi fam, come say hi!
