A summer-ready color that pairs with just about anything you can dream up this season.

These stylish summer slip-ons are nearly everything you could ask for in a pair of footwear for warm weather, starting with the fact that, well, they’re easy as can be to wear. Slide them on for (socially distanced) errands or a brewery pick-up visit, rock ’em while hanging outside & then kick them off when you’re done for the day. That’s it, easy as that. You’re getting a lot of versatility from these classic summer slip-ons, too. These are the kind of shoes to wear with slim grey chinos and a classic polo for slightly dressier occasions (summer date night at home, anyone?), and yet, you’re going to find yourself wearing the SeaVees Baja Slip-Ons with chino shorts and a crisp white tee, too. The washed linen upper is ideal for casual style in the summer, while the memory foam footbed offers plenty of comfort — think of these as summer house shoes for day-to-night style. The molded herringbone outsole is also a timeless SeaVees touch that finishes these sneakers off quite nicely. Before you finalize your summer shopping, make sure these essential slip-ons are in the mix.
