That extra half inch of rubber? It looks good, but it's the difference between absolutely bulletproof toesies and being the guy who has to change his socks at work after a rainy commute. —Martin Mulkeen
The Mare Island Naval Shipyard was the first US Navy base established on the Pacific Ocean. In August 1969, the U.S. relocated its training operations from Coronodo to Mare Island, California. The 08/69 is a reissue of the style known as "swim shoes" or "coral creepers" by Naval sea cadets during the era.

What makes a sneaker a SeaVees?
Our shoes are carefully crafted in small batches to control quality and consistency using a
time-honored footwear construction called vulcanization. We are extremely passionate about the multiple benefits of an authentic vulcanized sneaker, from the obvious greater durability to the magical little nuances that happen in the oven. Both classic and contemporary with a reverence for 1960s California cool, SeaVees are the timeless footwear choice.
We develop premium textiles, select the finest leathers, and utilize finishing techniques exclusive to SeaVees.
A Lasting Impression
The proprietary SeaVees last, the foundational aluminum form, gives our sneakers their renowned finessed look and ensures consistent fit from
style to style.
We demand critical time-honored methods others have compromised through the years, like the use of natural rubber, no synthetics, which gives our shoes a soft step, flexibility and exceptional durability.
Top of Mind
In every shoe lives the SeaVees secret weapon. Our contoured cushy memory foam footbed is built to make SeaVees the most comfortable sneaker you’ve ever worn.
With perforations, airflow channels, and washed cotton lining, our exclusive footbed is designed to keep your feet cool for all-day comfort.
