About SeaVees:

We all have dreams. We tell ourselves we’re too young, old, busy, or just not good enough. And that’s when they end up on a shelf. Our brand was quite literally put on a shelf for nearly 40 years before our founder discovered a pair at a second-hand shop in Tokyo and brought it back to life in its original home in California—the state where dreams come true, or in our case, have a second chance. At SeaVees, we believe there’s a sea of possibilities. In rediscovering who we are and what we can be.

    SeaVees is part of the Pentland Family:

    We are Pentland Brands, a global business touching the lives of millions through some of the worlds most-loved active and footwear brands. We own Speedo, Berghaus, Canterbury of New Zealand, Endura, Mitre, ellesse, SeaVees, KangaROOS and Red or Dead. We’re the UK licensee for Kickers and have a joint venture with Lacoste footwear.

    We have a rich and remarkable history, of family, of ambition and of innovation, of leading from the front with a legacy of outstanding brands and equally outstanding people. Of pioneering brands that make life better. Brands that create an emotional connection with our consumers and help keep people on the move. Brands that do good, that form part of a positive business that takes action for people and planet.

    We celebrate differences and give everyone the freedom to innovate and develop because we know this is an exceptional place to build brands and build your career. We want you to come to work every day excited about what we can achieve when we have a clear and single-minded focus on being consumer-centric and relentlessly focused on improving our performance.

    Always guided by our principles, we not only do a great job, but we also do it in the right way; success is a team game; with clarity and courage; better as standard; in good conscience. We believe every individual has the power to shape the Pentland of the future, by making sure that every day we’re better than the day before.
