When it comes to highly frenetic activities (trading stuff, doing blow), New Yorkers are unrivaled; to excel at unrepentant laziness, however, we need help. Outfit yourself for screwing around, with California's SeaVees shoes.
SV's the uber-casual debut from a footwear design vet and an ex-Stride Rite exec, the latter weary of toiling for ungrateful brats who inevitably forsake him for a brand not chosen by their moms. Each of the models takes its name from iconic dates in Cali history, e.g., the slip-on canvas 05/66 (Pet Sounds released), the lace-up canvas 10/68 (Bullitt premiere), and the lace-up suede 01/68, for the debut of the Eames Chaise lounge chair (which doesn't sound iconic, until you realize that eternally associating your name with napping is genius). Design-wise, each pair's constructed with premium materials, lined throughout with leather, and accented with micro-perforated nubuck -- a sturdier form of suede, not to be confused with the angst-metal Buckwheat tribute, Nü-Buck.
