A Salt-Water for every Occasion
The appeal of a Salt-Water sandal is the fact it can be worn with so many different things and work in all sorts of settings. Devoted fans of the brand barely take them off from the first signs of Spring to the arrival of Autumn when they are sadly forced to put them into hibernation. Here at the EU HQ we love to hear how and where people have worn their mighty Salt-Waters. It seems there really is a Salt-Water for all occasions.
Firstly, they make a great holiday sandal. They can be worn in the water which makes scrambling over rocks and exploring through caves and pools a doddle. The leather adjusts to the wearer’s feet when they get wet, so wearing them in water actually makes them more comfortable. Plus they pack flat so choosing a few pairs to go with different outfits won't take up too much space in your luggage.
Here are some Red Originals about to be used as a swimming shoe in Lake Zell, Austria. When you’re not a hundred percent sure of what’s lurking at the bottom of the water or you may need to scramble down rocks to get in Salt-Water sandals are very practical and perfect for wild swimming; Your Salt-Waters will keep your feet protected and you’ll look dead nice too.
Some people have worn the Salt-Water premium range to more formal events and weddings. The metallic gold and silver are a great choice for bridesmaids and the flat white original has been spotted on several brides who are going for the more laid back country style or beach wedding. Look at these beauties!
They’re also a pretty good option for City Breaks & Sightseeing - a pleasure to wear whether you’re meandering down Las Ramblas in Barcelona or negotiating the souks in Morocco. They are so comfortable you never have to think about your feet; you can concentrate completely on enjoying your days activity without having to search for a chemist to buy plasters.
Here are some navy Originals on the cobble stones of Cais Cais near Lisbon. Bonus points for matching your nail polish to the falling petals of local flora!
And since the Salt-Water original was designed in the 1940s they also work really well with vintage style.
We wore our sandals right the way into October last year and for those weird stormy days when it’s pouring one minute and sunny the next, they really are a great wet weather option. Rain coat? Check. Umbrella? Check. Salt-Waters? Check. We’re good to go.
ps: we’re not saying they’re a cycling shoe but they do look pretty when riding a bike on a sunny day don’t you think?
