I was bought a pair as a gift but I want to change them, what do I do?/ I brought a pair from another store and want to exchange/return them

We do require some proof of purchase so please contact the person who bought them for you and ask them for the order number quoted in their confirmation email. At the least please provide us with their name and contact details so we can search our webshop database for their sales record, as we can only accept returns that were bought from us. We can only offer returns and exchanges for (faulty) sandals purchased through our site. In order to return or exchange items purchased through one of our stockists, please contact them directly. In cases were stores cannot accommodate or have closed we will evaluate the fault and offer you a voucher to use on a new pair.

I brought a pair during a promotional sale - can I return/exchange them?

Salt-Water Sandals do not except returns/exchanges on any items brought during a promotion e.g Black Friday/Sample Sales etc. All items brought during these periods are non refundable and cannot be returned or exchanged unless proved faulty or if we have sent you the incorrect Sandal. Should there be an issue with your order placed during a promotional period please get in touch straight away and we will do our best to amend this for you. Please note that we can only cancel/amend orders if our warehouse will accommodate so we can not promise all requests will be carried out but we do promise to try our best.

How long does it take for my return to be processed?

For all sandals purchased directly through out website - Once the warehouse notifies us that your sandals (and shoe box) have been returned in good order we can start the refund process. We will not refund sandals that are marked in any way or not returned with the box in good condition. Please make sure you try them on a carpeted area and return the box inside suitable packaging. Following Consumer Contracts regulations you have the right to cancel and return your order within within 14 days but please note during busy periods the refund process can take up to 14 days.

My sandals are faulty – what do I do?

We’re very sorry if you’ve received a faulty pair. Please fill in the contact form and let us know what your fault is. Someone will then contact you with next steps. We can only offer returns and exchanges for (faulty) sandals purchased through our site. If you have purchased your sandals from another store or country, you will need to go back to the retailer and ask for their returns or exchange policy.

Stock Availability

If the item has sold out, the size will not appear as an option on the drop down selection / will be marked sold out. In busy periods items may sell out at the point of checkout i.e.: another customer bought the last pair just seconds before you (their payment transaction completed just before yours did etc) In this instance we will endeavour to contact you as soon as possible and offer an alternative.

Ordering / Issue with payment

Please make sure you provide us with both the billing address for the payment method you use (the address where your credit or debit card is registered to) as well as the correct delivery address as these can be different. We will not be able to process an order with an incorrect billing address. It is also very important to make sure the email & tel number you give us is correct as these will be used to inform you of your delivery, or used in the case of a problem. If you don't choose to add us to your contact list, Please check your spam folder for dispatch emails



In the UK we use a courier (door to door) service and do not offer regular mail. There must be someone at the address in normal working hours to receive the delivery. Sometimes a work address is a better option for this reason. We will deliver the package to the address but not person to person, so please guarantee a trusted person will be there to receive the package. Postage can take between 1-3 days


We offer several options for shipping to Europe – Express courier/Standard courier and where possible a tracked parcel rate. In all instances packages are trackable but some are quicker than others and these methods cost more. We offer a service for parcels up to 25kg, which we recommend for multiple purchases.


We do not offer an express service to ROW as this would make the rates very high. We offer standard courier only. If your country is not showing on the list please contact us via the contact form.
