Westwood Sneaker Standard: Natural

$ 78.00


SeaVees’ 05/65 Westwood Tennis Shoe honors the legendary Arthur Ashe and is inspired by the classic tennis stylings of the mid-sixties. After lightweight canvas uppers are cut and sewn, each pair is salt-washed for over 90 minutes for a soft, perfectly faded finish. Backstay features a vintage cotton webbing. Superior comfort footbed with uppers lined in soft cotton canvas. Heel counter is lined in sueded leather to secure fit. The traditional calendar outsole is made with genuine gum rubber for a softer, more elastic result.

In May 1965, led by team captain Arthur Ashe, the UCLA men's tennis team wins the NCAA National Championship on its home court in Westwood, California. Ashe, the country's highest ranking collegian, captures both the singles and doubles titles, as UCLA claims 31 of a possible 34 points.
