The popular rain shoe maker will open its first brick-and-mortar showroom at Metropolis in Metrotown this fall
Summer is officially over, and you know what that means – it’s time to pull out your rain jackets and waterproof boots and embrace a wet fall ahead.
If you’re already revamping your wardrobe, make sure rain essentials make a difference.
Just in time for the rainy weather, popular Vancouver waterproof sneaker brand Vessi will open its first-ever retail showroom – in Burnaby.
While the exact opening date remains unknown, the first outlet will offer limited-edition items that will only be available in stores when it opens in November at Metropolis in Metrotown.
Marketed as the “world’s first waterproof shoes”, the brand launched in 2018 quickly gained a loyal fanbase, selling over a million shoes as an online retailer.
The new store will occupy the former “Call it Spring” space, next to the Armani Exchange in Metropolis at Metrotown.
For those curious about the shoes’ ability to withstand the Vancouver rain, the store will feature unique interactive water features that allow you to test out Vessi’s shoes, perhaps redefining the meaning of a shopping experience. “immersive”.
