The SeaVees 02/60 Trail Boot are an ode to the success of the Winter Olympic Games that was held in Squaw Valley in the 1960s. The US company blends the stitching and styling of a moccasin with the durability and endurance of a hiking boot to create these history-infused footwear.

The boots have full-grain leather uppers and rawhide leather laces that are made to last by emerging them in a special oil. The soles of the shoes are made to be as comfortable as a sneaker and to lessen slip resistance. The patting in the shoe molds to your feet to create a softer and supremely comfortable experience. The SeeVees 02/60 Trail boots are hand-sewn using thick waxed thread. Silver eyelets allow for laces to loop in and out of the hiking boot.

These boots do well to honor the footwear that appeared in the 1960s Olympic games, which were the first to happen in the Western United states and to be televised. Stats for Archival Olympian Footwear Trending: Older & Chilly
