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.

Look great, but i can’t see why they are so expensive ($140). FOb cost on those canvas vulcanized shoes can’t be more than $10.00, maybe a bit more given the low qty…I know, I know, it’s a special limited edition. whoohoo.

Nice job though on the concept and branding, i have to say. It doesn’t show anything on the website, but would be even more awesomer if they had that classic pantone logo and some sort of swatch tag on the shoe, methinks.

they might as well have collaborated with supreme for that price tag.

i’ll pass, but i shouldn’t have passed on those fila x core77 kicks. those were sick!
