shoe sizing chart - saltwater sandals
please click HERE to access saltwater sizing charts
To find the right size, please print the corresponding chart 100% to scale (do not print "to fit page") and allow at least 1cm in front of your toes.
If you are familiar with American sizes, Please note Sun-San / Salt-Water are NOT TYPICAL US SIZES
We recommend going up +1 in the Sun-San range and +1 in the Salt-Water Original. If you are in between sizes you may find only +1 is still roomy enough e.g a UK 7.5 would be okay in a Salt-Water 8.
Please read how each model fits in the descriptions below. These are general guidelines and of course your exact size and fitting will ultimately depend on your personal preference and the overall structure of your foot. Because these are open toed shoes people like to wear them differently (toes close to edge / not close too the edge!)
Kids shoes should NOT be purposefully bought larger in order to make the sandal "last longer" as the traditional fit of this brand is pretty roomy. With any of the sandals, should you get a sore spot, dunk your foot & sandal into water (yes really!) and wear them until they dry. Remember, every model can be used as a swimming shoe and can be put through the washing machine on gentle cold wash.
A mini version of the surfer, complete with toe buckle & ankle strap. Adjustable front and back to fit wide or narrow feet. An extra slit in the toe strap gives extra flexibility for those just starting to walk.
The Swimmer features a plaited leather toe with buckled ankle strap. Fits narrower than the Salt-Water Original, and as the front is non-adjustable, not the best for very narrow or wide feet.
This design has a woven semi-closed toe and heel. Fits shorter and narrower than most other models so please order at least a +1 in this size. Not the best for wider feet.
Your quintessential classic sandal. Adjustable buckle toe & ankle straps on a urethane sole. The best all round sandal for any shape foot.
The sweetheart is fully adjustable with buckled toe and ankle straps. Just as robust as the Surfer but a little bit girlier.
The original Salt-Water sandal is very roomy. Fits comfortably wide. Before you put them on for the first time, stretch out the toe straps and gently bend the sole to ease. Best fitted with toes behind the stitch line. DO NOT oversize for children with the hope they will last longer.
