I love my Vessi sneakers and wear them almost every day! I HAAAATE wet socks (who doesn't??) but struggle to find rain boots that fit me right and don't hurt my feet. Vessi has been an awesome alternative for me and totally worth every penny. I live in NYC and walk everywhere without my feet hurting one bit, which is huge for me. Plus, they are machine washable, which is a bonus... in fact, mine are in the wash right now!
