SeaVees Monterey Standard History

SeaVees, a BF Goodrich brand which was established in 1964 is one of the pioneers of casual sneakers. It established the authentic coastal casual lifestyle and defined California in its golden age. SeaVees captured the youthful spirit at that time for seven bright years, but in a flash, it vanished without a trace.

It remained dormant and waited for nearly 40 years before Steven Tiller rediscovered the shoe behind a glass case of a thrift store in Tokyo. Tiller anchored back in Boston and sold his car and house. Together with his family, he set-up his shop in a Santa Barbara studio to rebuild and lead the rebirth of the forgotten American original. 

One of its versatile footwear is the SeaVees Monterey Standard which has a low-cut profile and a sleek design that is perfect for several types of wardrobe. It has a canvas upper that provides breathability and a vulcanized sole that offers a reliable grip. The shoe, created to celebrate the Hippie revolution, is inspired from the Monterey Pop Festival in 1967. It was a 3-day music festival that is regarded as among the beginnings of the “Summer of Love.”
