Salt-water® sandals have been cult classics for over 70 years, ever since walter hoy started making them with scrap leather from military boots during wartime shortages in 1944. they are the quintessential flat sandal still made with genuine leather uppers and little-way stitched rubber soles. they form to the shape of the foot with repeated wear, a process that hastens when wet. these versatile sandals combine comfort, fashion, and functionality, so they're perfect for wearing to the beach, splashing in the sea, pounding the pavement, or just hanging out.
I absolutely love these sandals! They're so cute and comfortable. I picked up the black, red and gold. I might be back for another pair, because we all know a girl can never have too many shoes! I normally wear a 7-7 1/2. I ordered them in an 8 and they fit perfectly.
I highly recommend soaking them in some warm water for about 5 minutes, and them wearing them until they dry. It's the perfect way to break them in and allow them to mold to your foot.
Love Saltwaters and have owned several pairs for both me and my children. This is the first pair that has had the finish just come off after being exposed to water. Took them to thw splash pad for the first time and the gold just came off by the buckle. EXTREMELY disappointed!
Be aware that all Saltwaters are stiff and smallish when they first come out of the box. Soak them in a sink until the leather is good and wet, about an hour. Put them on your child while wet and have them wear them for a few hours to break them in. Straight from the box, they will likely cause blisters. But if you soften them up and break them in, this is a durable and beautiful sandal that will last through many kids! The light colored ones start to look shabby before the darker ones. I have a pair of adult brown ones and I just passed them on to my sister in law after getting 15 years of use out of them!
