The women’s SeaVees Sausalito Sneaker is offered in sizes 5-11 in medium width. Half sizes are also available. Suede material makes up the shoe’s upper, delivering a solid and dependable fit. Meanwhile, the flat laces keep the tightness adjustable according to one’s preference. The low-cut silhouette allows the ankle to move freely.

Three colorways, Rosewood, Black, and Blue Mirage, are available for the low-top SeaVees Sausalito Sneaker. These neutral and pastel options are perfect for the spring or summer seasons, paired with different casual outfits. For a preppy flair, the shoes can be worn with slacks, capri pants, high-waist shorts, skater or A-line skirts, and dresses.

Meanwhile, for laidback casual occasions, the kicks can be paired with denim jeans, overalls, joggers, leggings, and shorts. Button-down shirts, polo shirts, sweatshirts, and t-shirts will complement the sneaker's relaxed yet sophisticated vibe. Bold, pastel and neutral hues would go well with the model's vintage look.

Featuring an upper made up of supple suede, the SeaVees Sausalito Sneaker offers a luxurious look and feel. It has a classic lace-to-toe design, along with an innovative collapsible heel which provides an easy on and off option. A preppy touch is delivered by the contrasting stitch details all over the upper. On the midsole is the SeaVees logo, which completes the simple yet sophisticated appeal.

SeaVees was born in 1964 and was known for its coastal casual footwear designs. The brand lay dormant for many years just several years after it was established. It was eventually relaunched by Steven Tiller, who had found a pair of SeaVees shoes at a thrift store in Tokyo. Since then, the label has been introducing classic kicks with a dash of modern aesthetic.

One such model is the SeaVees Sausalito Sneaker. It was inspired by the mid-1960s floating houseboat community of artists, writers, musicians, and philosophers in the seaside town of Sausalito, California. The place was known as the Artist’s Colony and was in turn inspired by Gertrude Stein’s Paris salons in the 1920s, in which creative minds got together to discuss relevant issues.

The design of SeaVees Sausalito Sneaker features a collapsible heel, making it suitable to be worn as a slip-on. This innovative feature and the shoe’s pastel and neutral hues make the model worthy of any creative person’s closet. It has plenty of modern vibes, yet it also has a subtle and timeless flair, perfect for balancing between two worlds.

  • The contoured foam footbed provides comfort and cushioning.
