How Vessi’s New Sneakers Are Helping Mental Health

August 12, 2020

We recently took Vessi‘s new Weekend Sneakers on a test run, and loved every pavement-pounding moment of it!

This newest shoe from sustainable footwear-maker Vessi is a modern take on the classic court shoe silhouette that is 100 per cent waterproof, vegan and machine-washable—in other words, the first of its kind on the market! Launching tomorrow (August 12th, 2020), you can reserve your very own pair with a $5 deposit (à la Tesla presale model) and pay the balance when the shoes are ready to be shipped. The deposit collected will be donated to mental-health charities like The Trevor Project (to prevent and end suicide among LGBTQ and young people), To Write Love On Her Arms (to educate communities and connect people to the help they deserve), Brain & Behaviour Research Foundation (to fund scientific research around the world to find cures for mental illness) and Canadian Mental Health Association (provides Canadians with better access to mental health services).

Good vibes from head to toe, weekends and beyond! —Vita Daily
