SALT WATER RETRO
The Salt Water Retro is exactly that – a re-discovered gem of a style from the 1970s that we were delighted to find in the Hoy Shoe Company archives. The distinctive criss-cross straps have really stood the test of time, so the Retro is definitely back!
All sizes listed on this website refer to Salt Water and Sun-San sizing, which are unique to our brands.
Please refer to the size guide chart below
Salt Water Adult sandals: are manufactured in traditional US men’s sizing. For US Women sizes, please go up by two sizes. For guidance, please refer to the size guide above.
Salt Water Infant, Child and Youth styles: the US size is one size up from the Salt Water size given on the bottom of the sandal.
All Sun-San styles: these come in standard US sizing (this is the size given on the bottom of the sandal). The Sun-San Shark is slightly smaller than other Sun-San styles so we recommend you size up in these
Please note that Salt Water and Sun-San sandals should fit firmly across the foot on first wear and will gradually adapt to your foot shape. If you experience rubbing/tightness, simply pop your sandals on and stand in a bucket of cool water for a few minutes and then allow your sandals to dry while you’re wearing them so that they mould nicely to the shape of your foot.
How to keep your Salt Water sandals looking good…
As the name implies, it’s fine to wear Salt Water and Sun-San sandals in the water (including at the beach, jumping in puddles etc) and they can be hand washed in cold water using a mild detergent, if dirty. However, be sure to dry away from direct sunlight/heat.
