The Original Sandal.
The Original sandal is the first-born in the Salt-Water family. A timeless design dating back to 1944, Walter Hoy made the first ever pair for his daughter Marjorie. To help cope with leather shortages during the war, Walter made sandals from scrap leather in his Missouri workshop – with leather left over from making military boots.
Fast forward to 2020 and the Original design remains unchanged to this day. This best-selling sandal style features a woven leather upper, hand stitched volcanised rubber sole and ankle strap with a rust proof buckle. The Original open-toe sandals are designed to last with their timeless appeal and durable design.
Saltie fans love the authentic design and the fact that they’re water-proof! These water sandals carry you from sand to sea and make for a must-pack holiday item.
Worn for over 75 sun-drenched years, The Original has become a cult classic and is worn and loved by generations, the world over.
The Original collection spans a covetable range of 19 colours and is available in both Adult and Kids sandal sizes.
