The right type of footwear is key to staying comfortable when running errands, commuting or traveling — especially if you find yourself stuck in the elements.

Instead of donning rain boots for drizzly days this spring, you’re going to want to invest in a pair of Vessi’s innovative sneakers, which are 100 percent waterproof.

If you’re wondering how exactly a pair of sneakers can tread through puddles without getting soaked, the answer is in the material. And no, the shoes don’t have a special protective coating either.

Vessi developed a patented knit called Dyma-tex that allows heat to escape your feet without ever letting water in. While they keep your feet dry, you’ll also stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

Not only are these sneakers an all-season must for your wardrobe, but as part of In The Know’s Exclusive Offers for readers, you can score 10 percent all of Vessi’s shoes (excluding accessories) until May 31. And all you have to do is use the promo code VESSIXITK10 at checkout.

One of the best parts of Vessi’s sneakers is that they’re waterproof, but they’re also sustainably made. To make each sneaker, Vessi is committed to reducing its carbon footprint when it comes to its facilities, materials, packaging and manufacturing processes. Plus, the entire Vessi collection is made from vegan materials, and all of its packaging is 100% recyclable.

Vessi currently offers three different sneaker styles, and the shoes’ minimalistic style means they definitely can pair with any outfit, any time of the year.

Vessi’s Everyday Sneakers are a great for daily wear, with increased arch support and thicker soles, whereas the Cityscape Sneakers are the brand’s lightest pair. The Weekend Sneakers, however, are your best bet for more style and less sport. Plus, each style is available in multiple colors so they can match your aesthetic.

Check out all three of Vessi’s waterproof shoes — and don’t forget to use the exclusive promo code while checking out.
