SeaVees and Gitman Bros. team-up to offer an interesting contrasted colorway on the 09/63 plimsoll sneaker. The sneaker features a two-tone design which combines suede and an interpretation of “bleeding madras,” a non-colorfast fabric which creates an interesting faded and bleeding aesthetic through each wash. However, it’s simply an homage to old 1960s notions of bleeding madras as it as been pre-faded for wearability. The collection is available now at SeaVees.

Our best-selling 09/63 Plimsoll is the base for our limited edition Bleeding Madras style. Bleeding madras is a hand-spun, yarn dyed woven from India, made popular in the 1960s (most notably in S.E. Hinton’s book The Outsiders). Dyes that were not colorfast were used, resulting in bleeding and fading colors that gave the fabric a new, personalized look each time it was laundered. Especially popular in California at the time, shirts were marketed as “guaranteed to fade.” We selected our two plaid patterns from the 1960s archives of our supplier.

Genuine, durable 40/40s Indian madras is combined with superior sueded leather on our 09/63 Bleeding Madras Plimsoll. Laces are oil stuffed rawhide leather. Flat eyelets are brushed silver. Comfort footbed is leather lined. Collars and heel counters are lined with sueded leather to secure fit. Our signature herringbone outsole design offers maximum slip resistance. SeaVees teamed with Gitman Brothers Vintage to replicate the magical look of original bleeding madras. (Note: We pre-faded our fabric to make it appropriate for footwear use, so you will not experience unwanted color transfer onto skin and clothing).
