All deliveries will require a signature. We deliver door to door not person to person so please make sure there is a trustworthy person at your stated address to accept your order. If no one is available at your address to take delivery, we will endeavour to ensure you receive a note that the Products have been returned to our premises or being held by the delivery company, and in either case, you will need to rearrange delivery.

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.



Sun-San & Salt-Water Sandals that are purchased online from our webstore can be returned within 14 days of the purchase date for a full refund of the amount of the purchase excluding shipping costs. Upon receiving your returned Sandals at our warehouse, a refund for the amount of the purchase will be issued to you within 28 business days. This refund will be issued to the credit card that was used to make the original purchase. We cannot refund different accounts or credit cards.

All merchandise must be returned unused and accompanied by the original box and packaging. Please make sure you try on your shoes on a carpeted area. We will not accept returned shoes that are marked on the sole. The condition of the product is left to the discretion of Salt-Water.

Size info & Care

We recommend going up +1 in the Sun-San range and +1 in the Salt-Water Original. If you are in between sizes you may find only +1 is still roomy enough e.g a UK 7.5 would be okay in a Salt-Water 8. 

Please read how each model fits in the descriptions below. These are general guidelines and of course your exact size and fitting will ultimately depend on your personal preference and the overall structure of your foot. Because these are open toed shoes people like to wear them differently (toes close to edge / not close too the edge!)

Kids shoes should NOT be purposefully bought larger in order to make the sandal "last longer" as the traditional fit of this brand is pretty roomy. With any of the sandals, should you get a sore spot, dunk your foot & sandal into water (yes really!) and wear them until they dry. Remember, every model can be used as a swimming shoe and can be put through the washing machine on gentle cold wash.


A mini version of the surfer, complete with toe buckle & ankle strap. Adjustable front and back to fit wide or narrow feet. An extra slit in the toe strap gives extra flexibility for those just starting to walk.


A mini version of the Strappy. Adjustable ankle strap and flexible woven toe.

Swimmer & Strappy

The Swimmer features a plaited leather toe with buckled ankle strap. Fits narrower than the Salt-Water Original, and as the front is non-adjustable, not the best for very narrow or wide feet.


This design has a woven semi-closed toe and heel. Fits shorter and narrower than most other models so please order at least a +1 in this size. Not the best for wider feet.


Your quintessential classic sandal. Adjustable buckle toe & ankle straps on a urethane sole. The best all round sandal for any shape foot.


The sweetheart is fully adjustable with buckled toe and ankle straps. Just as robust as the Surfer but a little bit girlier.

Salt-Water Original

The original Salt-Water sandal is very roomy. 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.
