SeaVees Army Issue Sneaker Low History

SeaVees was born in 1964 and reborn many years later following a long period of dormancy. Despite this, the brand has been able to bring a unique 1960s touch to the modern sneaker world, firmly establishing its place. By balancing classic styles with modern comforts, SeaVees continues to win the hearts of style-conscious individuals.

One of the offerings from the brand’s lifestyle rotation is the SeaVees Army Issue Sneaker Low casual shoe. It’s inspired by the multi-purpose sports footwear of the sixties, featuring a timeless silhouette. It also showcases military-inspired details in its colorway choices and lacing style.

This particular model takes after a shoe born out of the Armored Combat Training Area of Camp Irwin in 1961. This premier training center was located in the Mojave Desert in San Bernardino County in California, handling many units.

The trainees needed reliable footwear, and the Army Issue Sneaker Low is inspired by that shoe model, hence the name. Other variations of this sneaker include the SeaVees Army Issue Standard.

Additional Info

  • All-day comfort is provided by the shoe’s superior custom contoured footbed.
  • Genuine gum rubber is used for the SeaVees traditional calendar outsole for a long-lasting and elastic result.
