Salt-Water Original Story
American cult classics since the 1940’s. As a way to cope with leather shortages in World War II, Walter Hoy started making his sandals using the scrap leather left over from making military boots. Word soon spread and before long, families from all over St. Louis, were asking if Walter could make sandals for their kids. Seventy 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 colors and designs, the enduring quality & proven heritage of their sandals is unquestionable. Salt-Water originals are known by their tough little-way stitched rubber sole, whilst the Sun-San range is built upon a more bouncy urethane bonded base. A water resistant sealant covers the leather and they also mold to the user’s feet with repeated wear. The brass buckles allow straps to adjust for narrow or wide feet. They are great for running in and out of the ocean and can be hand washed with a gentle detergent – the perfect summer sandal for both wet and dry conditions.
