Living in Vancouver means you need to have weather appropriate shoes because when it rains, it pours. I hate wearing rubber boots, especially when trying to drive as they leave little room for movement and walking in general is just uncomfortable.
After buying the Vessi Everyday sneaker, I've been wearing them rain or shine because they're just so comfortable! They really do protect your feet from the wet westcoast weather and those unintended steps into puddles. My feet are dry and can breathe unlike rubber boots.
Pulling them on the first time was a bit of a struggle but they've loosened up and have formed to my feet nicely. I love them so much that I have three pairs and bought one for my mother in law. I can't wait to see what colours they have for spring!
