SeaVees 09/65 Bayside Moccasin

“In September 1965 the San Francisco Examiner is the first to observe the birth of the hippie movement. The newspaper notes in its September 6th edition that the Haight-Ashbury district of San Francisco, California has become ‘a hip hangout’ for beatniks.”

That’s the feeling and inspiration behind SeaVees Bayside Moccasin. It is a hand-sewn shoe, with leather upper and rawhide laces. Add a “SeaVulc” sole (their patented natural rubber manufacturing process) and one gets some sneaker comfort from a refined shoe.
