If you are looking for that something something for your designer friends, how about a pair of Pantone Shoes?
SeaVees, Purveyors of California Casual, has announced an exclusive collaboration with Pantone, the world–renowned authority on color. True to their inspiration, each SeaVees style is named to honor an influential date in 1960’s California-cool history.
With the creation of the 09/63, SeaVees celebrates the founding of Pantone, and the release of the first PANTONE MATCHING SYSTEM in September 1963. For the first time in their 45 year history, Pantone has allowed an external design team into their hallowed archives. SeaVees has selected seven vintage colors from the original Pantone color guide. The palette, chosen from the only authentic guide known to exist, epitomizes the cool, casual style of California in 1963. The series production has been restricted to 1,963 pairs.
