Get your hands (feet?) on some Saltwater Sandals this summer ☀️
It may not feel like it this week, but Summer is just around the corner (YAY!), so you know it’s time to start sorting out that summer wardrobe for your little adventurers… Finding those staples they will love to wear day in, day out👏
Our go to Summer shoes for bigger kiddos (and Mamas) are Saltwater Sandals. They are seriously the whole package – the look, the feel, the quality, the value – it’s a win-win-win-win!
Saltwater Sandals, or Salties, are THE perfect summer sandal! Crafted from soft, durable leather they are perfect for the Aussie lifestyle and for growing feet! As the name suggests Salties are made for water 🌊 They mould to the foot shape and become softer, with repeated wear and exposure to water. Making them PERFECT for the beach, splashing in puddles and doing all things kid! AND best of all, you can throw them in the washing machine when they need a clean, thanks to the non-rusting brass buckles and tough, but flexible soles.
Oh and did we mention that Salties also have a range for Mamas? Who can resist a matching moment with your littlies 😉
We are currently stocking the HUGEST range of these amazing sandals. Take a look below at just a few of the styles and colours – or if you’re already sold on the incredibleness of these babies jump straight to the full range here!
The classic iconic Originals. These are super stylish and sophisticated even your biggest little will be happy to wear them. Adjustable ankle band, and leather that will soften – please note these can be a little trickier or chunky toddler feet, or particularly wide or super narrow feet due to no adjustment on the width.
The best for those tricky to fit feet, and also super unisex so these are great for the boys. Hello Navy, Tan, Olive etc. Double buckle means optimum fit and lots of room for growth. Choose these for super narrow, or wider than average feet as you can adjust both ankle and toe to fit. A little extra length is ok with these too, as you can keep feet nice and secure #doublebuckleforthewin
All the amazing features of the Surfers but with the sweet heart cutout if you want something a little more feminine. Our tip: add some socks for transeasonal wear & a cool retro look
Looking for boys sandals, look no further. But also these are totally unisex and we love the Rose Gold for the girls. Everything we love about Salties, in an uber practical closed toe & heel sandal. If unsure size up in these, as the closed in toe and heel will keep feet nice and secure with plenty of growing room. These make perfect everyday shoes, especially for school or daycare.
Sizing tips: Use the size guide! Measure you child’s foot length and go from there. And hit us up if you want to double check! Mama’s if you’re buying the slides we do recommend sizing up 1, but otherwise they are a true fit. Retro are a bit narrower than the originals.
Between us we have lots of kiddos, and they’ve alllll worn Salties! We can’t recommend them enough.
