SeaVees 08/63 Hermosa Plimsoll celebrates the first skateboard contest held in August 1963. Set in the parking lot of the Pier Avenue Junior High School in Hermosa Beach, California, the competition drew about 100 people from the nearby Hermosa Beach Surf Festival.
SeaVees “rugged oiled leather” has a special well-worn quality that only gets better with age. Scuffs, markings and color variations are normal in this type of natural leather and over time your own wear and tear will create a pair of sneakers that is unique to you. These nuances in the leather are what make this style so special but if your pair is a little more worn-in than you’d like, simply use your fingers to smudge out the spot. The natural oils in the leather will move around, making the marks less visible.
