You might be surprised to learn that the SeaVees 9/65 Bamboo Mocs aren't actually made out of canvas material. What looks like a typical canvas upper is actually made out of a sweet woven bamboo material, while fine bamboo linen is used for the lining.

The name SeaVees 9/65 Bamboo Mocs is partly based upon the unexpected material used and a historical reference. The numbers 9/65 represents the September of 1965, the month where the hippie movement was first recognized in printed media. The San Francisco Examiner had an article describing a district in the city as a "hip hangout" for beatniks.

Whether you want to honor the hippie movement or simply want a cool pair of kicks made out of a wicked material, the SeaVees 9/65 Bamboo Mocs may be the perfect choice.
