SeaVees | 7 Eye Trail Boot

Inspired by the VIII Olympic Winter Games in Squaw Valley, California the 7 Eye Trail Boot of the SeaVees footwear collection is a commentary on California culture in the 1960s...

"The small town - with no mayor and a ski resort with just one chair-lift - was selected over favorite Innsbruck by a narrow 32 to 30 vote. The ‘60 Games mark many notable achievements in Olympic history including the first to be held in the Western United States, the first to be televised, and the first time computers are used to tabulate results."

About the boot...

"Our 02/60 Trail Boot captures the simplistic stylings and functional ideals of the boots worn in the Squaw Valley era. Made of gutsy, full grain leather with a micro-sanded and oiled top surface for durability. Moccasin stitch and 360 degree welt stitch are hand-sewn with a heavy, waxed thread. Laces are oil stuffed rawhide leather. Flat eyelets are brushed silver. Superior comfort footbed is leather lined. Features a sueded leather heel counter to secure fit. Made by our patented SeaVulc Natural Rubber manufacturing process that allows a casual shoe to be as comfortable as a sneaker. Natural Rubber is softer and more elastic resulting in superior cushioning, reduced weight, increased flexibility, and maximum slip resistance"

The boot can be purchased for $210 here.
