Santa Barbara, CA

Born in 1964, SeaVees is the original way to go casual. With a groundbreaking advertising campaign throughout the 1960s, SeaVees pioneered the transformation of the sneaker from gym shoe to casual shoe. Today SeaVees honors its 1960s origin by continually making modern amendments to classic design, resulting in a timeless sneaker of exceptional quality.

SeaVees are thoughtfully designed in Santa Barbara, California, and batch-made in a family owned factory in China. While we would love to be able to manufacture here in the United States, we simply can’t. SeaVees are traditionally vulcanized, a time-honored footwear construction that dates back more than 100 years. The art of vulcanizing—where a hot kiln molds the upper and the rubber together—is no longer an industry in the United States. Understanding that manufacturing in China may bring up some concerns, we want to assure you that the working conditions and production techniques used to handcraft every pair of SeaVees are truly the best in class. | @seavees
