An original design dating to the 1940's, Salt-Water Sandals were originally made from scrap leather as a way to cope with leather shortages in World War II.

Ever wondered where are Salt-Water Sandals from? An original design dating to the 1940’s, Salt-Water Sandals were originally made from scrap leather as a way to cope with leather shortages in World War II. Walter Hoy used the scraps to create a pair for his daughter, Margery.

Word soon spread and before long families from all over St. Louis were asking if Walter and Hoy shoe company could make iconic sandals for their children.

Now, over 75 years on and Hoy shoes' classic designs continue to deliver durable leather comfort with a fashion savvy attitude.

Combined with rust-proof metal tongue buckles and produced in a wide choice of colours and designs, the enduring quality & proven heritage of their sandals is unquestionable.

Salt-Water Sandals are defined by their tough little-way stitched rubber sole, whilst the Sun-San range is built upon a more bouncy urethane bonded base.

Both ranges are made from 100% leather which is coated with a water resistant sealant and they all mould to the user's feet with repeated wear. The rust proof brass buckles allow straps to be adjusted for narrow or wide feet.

Why are they called Salt-Water Sandals you ask? Because they are great for running in and out of the ocean (or even splashing in puddles!) They can be handwashed with a gentle detergent - the perfect summer sandal for adults and kids, to be worn in both wet or dry conditions.

Are Salt-Water Sandals Unisex? Yes! Our classic design means Salt-Water Sandals can be enjoyed by anyone. We also offer an array of colours to suit all tastes. The perfect toddler sandals, kids sandals and womens sandals.
