The Salt-Water Original Sandal was the first ever Salt-Water to come out of the Hoy workshop back in 1944. Over 75 years later and this iconic sandal design lives on. It is a simple, versatile classic and looks lovely on all skin tones. The Original Salt-Water Sandal has our signature hand stitched sole and water resistant plaited leather upper. All Salt-Waters come with rust proof buckles, can be worn in the water and can be hand washed with a gentle detergent. All children sizes are made with a velcro fastening under a faux buckle across the ankle strap for day to day ease. They are comfortable, durable and still beautiful.
The Original is a roomy sandal and fits comfortably wide. Before you put them on for the first time, stretch out the toe straps and gently bend the sole to ease. Best fitted with toes behind the stitch line. Do not oversize for children with the hope they will last longer - you do not want anyone tripping up!
With any of the sandals, should you get a sore spot, dunk your foot & sandal into water (yes really!) and wear them until they dry.
Salt-Water sandals are made of 100% waterproof leather straps and insoles with the bottom soles made of vulcanised rubber bottom soles.
Sun San sandals aremade of 100% waterproof leather straps and insoles with a polyurethane that is directly bonded to the upper.
If you are familiar with American sizes, please note Salt-Water / Sun-San are not typical US sizes as the traditional fit of this brand is pretty roomy. For more information on sizing, kindly refer to https://www.salt-watersandals.com/asia-en/
