Sandal season: the best time of the year, right? I’m wearing my lush gold Salt-Water Sandals at every opportunity. I’ve been eyeing them up for years now, but have always been put off by the sizing. They are known for having unusual sizes, and the fact they aren’t readily available to try on makes it tricky to find the right sized Salt-Water Sandals.
So here is my guide to finding the right size Salt-Water Sandals, I hope you find it useful.
I Googled Salt-Water Sandal fit guides but nothing much came up. So I wrote a guide to finding the right size Salt-Water sandals, in case you have the same dilemma as me!
Salt-Water Sandals have a print-off sizing guide which I used. As you have to pay for postage, but not returns, I hedged my bets and bought three pairs, so I could send two back.
When they arrived, I was not disappointed, the Original Salt-Water Sandals look absolutely gorgeous. I love the colour and the gold buckles.
How To Choose The Right Sized Salt-Water Sandals
Start off with the print-off Salt-Water Sandals fit guide, and then follow my advice to get the perfect size.
Step 1: Print off the size guide, making sure to print at 100%.
Step 2: Step onto the size guide and check out the size they recommend.
I am normally a UK 5 1/2 to a 6, but often go down to 5 for sandals.
According to Salt-Water’s printed guide, I am a 6. On their website, they suggest going up a size. So I ordered a size 6 in the Original style and a size 6 and a size 7 in the Classic style. Delivery was fast, and they use a signed for service.
I thought the bigger sizes would be better, but when I tried all three pairs on I was so glad I’d ordered a 6 too:
So from my experiment, you can see that the printed fit guide is right. The line your toe hits is where the stitching would be for the next size up. So my toe hits size 5 and the size 6 fits perfectly. They do feel tight to start with, but the leather does loosen quite a lot, so don’t worry!
So my advice is to order your usual size and then follow my guide to making them fit and mould to your feet perfectly.
Want to Know How To Make Salt-Water Sandals Fit Perfectly?
My Gold Original Salt-Water Sandals are so comfortable I wore them every day on my holiday! You can actually wear Salt-Water Sandals in the sea, so they are perfect for beach walks.
I am already planning my next pair of Salties. They are the most expensive sandals I’ve bought, but I know they will last for years to come. I’m trying to live a more sustainable life, so I’m buying quality once, rather than several poor quality items.
Update on my Love Affair with Salt-Water Sandals
I have bought the pale pink version, and love them just as much! I’ve worn both pairs hundreds of times over many years and they both look almost as good as new. Salt-Water Sandals are definitely worth the investment as they truly stand the test of time and are so comfortable.
I’ve even bought Salt-water sandals for my daughters. We walked for miles and miles in them around Disneyworld with no blisters. And we walked for miles around London wearing them last year.
