Superficial are typically thin and are near the surface of the body. If you're talking about the deep veins such as the ones in the legs like the femoris, popliteal, and calf veins--the reason why these are deep is because the blood within these are being pushed up with muscle contractions. Also veins paired up with an artery are typical deeply embedded because they are vital veins that needed extra protection.
