What are Vegan Shoes?

What does it mean to have a vegan shoe? Vegan shoes are simply shoes that are 100% animal-free. Any leathers, wools, suedes, and silks used in vegan shoes are man-made and synthetic.

Vessi's Vegan Shoes

The material that makes Vessi, Vessi is 100% vegan.

Dyma-Tex is a waterproof membrane that we developed to create the most breathable waterproof footwear option possible. It contains millions of pores large enough to allow heat and moisture to escape, and small enough to prevent the outside elements from getting in - ensuring you have the most lightweight, breathable shoes that keep you cozy and dry even in the rain or snow while taking care of the animals too!

From our glue to our thread, Vessi waterproof shoes are 100% vegan and creature free. We use water-based adhesives for our glue and any leather or suede-like details are engineered.

What People are Saying about Vessi's Vegan Sneakers!

"These are even cuter in person and so comfortable (unless you don’t wear them with socks they will leave heal blisters) Yes, they are very expensive, but I feel good contributing to quality that comes from a conscious company that cares about the planet and the animals. I’m grateful for companies like these and because of their high standards, these shoes fit my heart too."

- Amy B.

"OMG! I’ve been following Vessi for years and finally got a pair for my birthday! The product does not disappoint! I love that its lightweight, 100% waterproof, easy to clean and they use vegan materials! I take my Vessis on my adventures because you can never know with the weather and it’s stylish. It’s first adventure was in Hawaii, we got through rain, beaches, sandy hikes, and lava rocks! Ready to buy another pair because why not."

- Thaolinh T.

"I am not one to write reviews... ever. But these shoes impressed me so much I’ve been raving to my family and friends. They are genuinely the most comfortable pair of shoes I have ever owned. The waterproof ability is amazing. I love that this brand is vegan as well, as that is a huge concern of mine. I would recommend this shoe to anyone and everyone. If you’re on the fence, just BUY IT!! I promise that you’ll be in love ."

- ALYSA

Why Choose Vegan Shoes?

_

Many of us are becoming more conscious of the power of our purchases and so are turning toward vegan or cruelty-free products.
There are many different reasons to buy vegan footwear - here are just a few that we connect with.

  • Animal Cruelty

    Animal-derived fabrics and products have a history of  cruelty toward animals. While we can’t change the system, individuals could inspire positive change within their communities! Those who support vegan options because they’d like to see an end to animal cruelty may inspire others to do the same.

  • ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

    Non-vegan products have also been criticized for having a negative impact on the environment through the use of toxic chemicals and machine processes.

Are Vegan Shoes Waterproof?

Are Vegan Shoes Waterproof?

Not all vegan shoes are waterproof; in fact, many vegan shoes require you to keep them dry, out of direct sunlight, and very rarely clean them. Our vegan footwear at Vessi is different—all of our shoes are both vegan AND waterproof!

Our Dyma-Tex waterproof membrane is the secret to our waterproof shoes. Because this feature is integrated directly into the fabric itself, your Vessis stay waterproof for their entire lifetime without the need for a harmful chemical waterproofing spray.
