the first model to come out of walter hoy's workshop in 1944, the original saltwater sandal is defined by its little way stitched rubber sole and plaited leather upper. all saltwater sandals 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 and have been seen on ava zane - daughter of billy zane. they are comfortable, durable and classically beautiful. the tan saltwater was the first colour to be made from scrap leather in 1944. it is a simple, versatile classic and looks lovely on all skin tones.
the original saltwater 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.
we recommend going up +1 in the saltwater original.
