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. As seen on longtime fan of the brand Alexa Chung - the Salt-Water navy women's sandals are one of our best-sellers and are the full stop to every outfit.
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!

In the UK we try to deliver your sandals next day delivery if we receive your order before Midday. Next day delivery includes any number of pairs up to 4 kilos. If we receive your order before midday on a Friday it will be processed on the next working day (Monday). If we receive your order after Midday on a Thursday then it will be processed for pick up by the courier on Friday afternoon. Delivery will be next working day: Monday. We have not offered Saturday delivery as our customers have to pay a high premium for this service.
Please note during national holiday periods (Easter / Christmas / Bank Holidays) delivery and dispatch will be slower. Our warehouse and all Courier services also deserve a break with their families and often we rely on a skeleton staff of eager beavers. The cost for sending out our dispatches is based on using trackable services NOT on providing next day although that is most often the case.
