SeaVees Raquet Club Suede Sneakers
09/60 MENS - RACQUET CLUB SNEAKER SUEDED LEATHER SPECS
The simplicity and elegance of mid-century Desert Modernism is the inspiration for our men's 09/60 Racquet Club Sneaker. Sleek one-piece circular vamp design makes for an ultra-minimal look. Features include raw edged deep navy suede, punched eyelets, slim waxed cotton laces and a matching off-white calendar outsole. Perforated custom contoured footbed provides all-day comfort and breathability.
The Racquet Club in Palm Springs, California, founded in the early 20th century by two Hollywood actors was the place to be seen in the sixties and the hottest spot for the celebrity social set — so says the September 1960 issue of Palm Springs Life Magazine. Imagine Paul Newman on the courts, Rock Hudson by the pool, and Marilyn in the club's invite only “Bamboo Room.” The world's No. 1 tennis players hit balls at the Racquet Club but let's be honest, the A-Listers had the run of the land.
We recommend ordering a half-size larger SeaVees than you usually wear.
