The first model to come out of Walter Hoys workshop in 1944, the Original Salt-Water Sandal stands out from other summer sandals with its waterproof leather uppers, little way stitched sole and rust proof buckles. All of our sandals can be worn in the water and can be handwashed with a gentle detergent. They go from childrens all the way through to adult sizes. The navy Salt-Water is one of our best-sellers and is perfect for a school shoe, a summer sandal - and everything in-between!
Info & Care
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!
