Back in the 40s when war time meant products were scarce, Walter Hoy started to make sandals from military boot scrap leather. What started with such humble beginnings has grown into the cult brand that Americans have known and loved for over 70 years.
The sandals first hit Australian shores in 2010 and perfectly match our environment and lifestyle. Made from durable leather, Salt Water and Sun-San sandals mould little people’s feet (literally step into the salty water wearing them and see how they take to the foot’s shape!). And if the sandals get a bit of a beating frolicking in sea water, racing over the sand or just out walking with mum and dad? Then throw them into the washing machine for an instant clean – flexible tough souls and non-rusting brass buckles mean they can withstand every day wear as well as a workout in the washer!
The Original Salt Water
Here is where it all began – the classic plaited leather for big and small girls and boys. The open design lets little feet breathe and an ankle strap keeps a firm fit. Non-slip vulcanised rubber sole.
Salt Water Surfer
An adjustable strap across the foot and ankle means this surfer won’t float off feet and out to sea! Non-slip vulcanised rubber sole.
Sweet as a button! These sandals come with crimped-edge leather and gorgeous cut-out heart shapes. A thicker sole but still the same water-friendly features of the Original Salt Water and the Salt Water Surfer.
Salt Water Shark Sandals
It’s a Salt-Water Shark; a traditional fisherman style latticed leather upper on a Salt-Water original rubber sole. Offering slightly more protection over the toe they are beautifully crafted and just as robust as the Original.
