Founded in June 1964, SeaVees pioneered the sneaker transformation from being gym shoes to casual shoes that people can wear to social events. During the company’s heyday, it launched several advertisements in popular magazines, such as Playboy and Sports Illustrated.

The original manufacturer of this brand was B.F. Goodrich, the same company that manufactures the popular car tires that we have today. The sneakers division of B.F. Goodrich was bought by Converse in 1969 but was later shut down in 1971.

In 2010, Steven Tiller brought back SeaVees to life. Today, SeaVees is being sold in more than 300 stores all over the world. Its team of 8 employees designs 40 different styles for men and women while preserving the casual California lifestyle that the brand was known for.

As a way to honor its origin, SeaVees launched several retro-inspired sneakers with modern twists. One of them is the SeaVees Legend Sneaker Platform. It is a stitch for stitch recreation of the classic SeaVees sneaker that started the casual shoe movement.

  • This shoe comes with the signature SeaVees herringbone outsole that provides excellent grip.
