Size + Fit
Please note that our Sun San sandals are sold per the Sun San sizing, they are unfortunately not an exact match to UK sizing, however they are very close. Sun-San do recommend going up 1 size in the Sun-San range and 1 up in the Salt-Water Original range too. If you are an in-between size you may find that only 1 size up will still be roomy enough. For example: a woman that is size UK 7.5 will fit perfectly into Salt-Water size 8.
We do recommend that you print out and use the below general sizing guide to ensure the correct fit. Simply use the print-out to measure your foot. When measuring your feet, allow at least 1cm extra at the front of your foot to get the correct length of shoe size.
This is a general guideline 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.):
- 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.
