Crazy Collaborations: SeaVees + Pantone Join Forces to Target Graphic Designers


SeaVees, a California-based footwear line founded by an ex-Stride Rite designer (you remember, those Velcro shoes you wore as a kid), has won a place in hipster hearts with simple models that look a lot like Vans but reference iconic dates in California history.

Now they’re going after the design crowd with an exclusive collaboration with the color fiends over at Pantone that celebrates the release of their first Matching System back in September 1963, a major moment in design history.

The series production has been restricted to 1,963 pairs, but of course.

If you want to pre-purchase a pair you can use the login “pantone” and the password “seavees0963” before November 24th. The shoes won’t be available in select stores until this spring.

But if you’re finding yourself underwhelmed by the collaboration — or rather, suddenly feeling inspired to paint your bathroom — tell us about it in the comments.
