salties - what else?
the first model to come out of walter hoy’s workshop in 1944, the original salt-water sandal is defined by its little way stitched rubber sole and plaited leather upper. the tan salt-water was the first sandal to be made from scrap leather, the original original! it is a simple, versatile classic and looks lovely on all skin tones. all salt-waters come with rust proof buckles, can be worn in the water (even in the sea) and can be handwashed with a gentle detergent. they go from childrens all the way through to adult sizes. they are comfortable, durable and we think beautiful.
the 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.
we recommend going up +1 in the salt-water original. if you are in between sizes you may find only +1 is still roomy enough e.g a EUR 38.5 would be okay in a salt-water 39.
