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.
For sunny days and aquatic fun, The Original Salt Water sandal by Hoy is a must. This braided offering in water-friendly leather can be worn in or out of the drink so your good time doesn't stop to worry about ruining the shoes. A buckled ankle strap keeps The Original in place so you don't have to worry about their falling off, either.

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.
Updated 5/2017: I love these sandals so much I now own 8 pairs. They all look just as beautiful as the day I bought them! They're incredibly comfortable and hold up beautifully.
I have pretty wide feet (can't wear Converse or Keds but New Balances are too wide for me), and the foot strap closest to my arch was a little snug at first, but not uncomfortably so. I haven't gotten these wet to really break them in yet, but even wearing them fresh out of the box all day long for multiple days, I haven't gotten any blisters.
They are comfy and cute and really versatile for summer days--walking around town, going to the beach, dancing in a club, etc. I could even see wearing these to a slightly fancy event.
One thing I did not consider is how gross sweaty leather smells after a while. I haven't noticed the smell yet, but be sure to read up on how to clean and take care of these sandals and I'm sure you'll have a great shoe for years to come.
-Super comfortable shoes that last and last and last.
-Get lots of compliments on them.
-There is marginal support, so if standing or walking for a long time, you might get sore feet (same as any flip flops or similar style sandals would cause).
These are one of those very rare products that truly live up to its hype. I've been going super minimalist with my wardrobe and was hoping I could use these as my only summer shoe. I've worn them every single day since purchase, and, incredibly, they still look brand new. If you get them wet with less than clean water (like a public splash pad full of chlorine and kid pee), the leather can sometimes get a little stiff around the edges once dry. Just pop them under the sink when you get home for a quick rinse. They will back to soft and comfy. Note: I have super wide feet and these fit fine. Also, I bought these for the practicality (wanted only one shoe outside of my rain shoes for our hot Texas summers), and have had the pleasant surprise of frequently getting compliments on them. Lots of older peeps seem to remember them from childhood (theirs or their kids), and lots of younger peeps seem to think they are super stylish. You can dress them up or down. They rock!
Would definitely buy these again. The red is just amazing, I love it. Excellent construction, quality work--these babies are going to last a long time.
