Saltwater sandals come from the USA, they are a great all purpose smart sandal which is super durable. The leather is coated with a water resistant sealant and the buckles are rust proof which means the sandals are water safe and can be used wet and dry. Good adjustability means the sandals suit most foot types, although best for medium to wide feet. They are not specifically a barefoot sandal but we have found them to be nice and wide and they soon soften up to be more flexible than some barefoot brand sandals. Whilst they are not zero drop the heel rise is very minimal. Please note we are only stocking the original soles as other soles are not barefoot friendly.
