We love things that are made to last. That’s why we’re cock-a-hoop about Saltwater sandals – former childhood staples that are, by some happy twist of fate, now available in grown-up sizes. Currently available in the US and Australia, this clever footwear is sand resistant, sea resistant, and quite probably has a deep-rooted commitment phobia to boot.
Created in the 1940s in response to the leather shortages of World War II, Saltwaters have a sturdiness that belies their humble beginnings. Put through paces that would make other shoes snap, shrink, rust and stain, these sandals take everything you throw at them and come bouncing back for more. Our feet have never had it so good.
