Santa Barbara-based SeaVees makes casual, beachy footwear for men and women such as huaraches, slip ons, boating mocs, sandals and a sneaker that is kind of a cross between Superga and Keds—basically, the perfect warm weather plimsoll. Gap, liking the look, commissioned SeaVees to create "the quintessential California sneaker" and it debuted yesterday.
The brand studied '60s culture and, inspired, created a capsule of shoes done in washed, retro shades of cream, grey, blue, olive and red. They're available for $54.95 at select Gap stores, a list that includes the Glendale Galleria, South Coast Plaza, Grove, 3rd Street Promenade and Westfield Century City locations. To hear more about the collab, head to the SeaVees site.
