The Not Quite Salt Water Sandals

Friday, December 13, 2013

For quite some time, I have admired and secretly wished for a pair of Salt Water Sandals. Admittedly, I've fallen for a trend, as the cult classic American flat shoes can be seen gracing the feet of many hipsters, summer fashionista's and celebrities in recent years.

Salt Water Sandals have an element of vintage appeal, which perhaps reminds us of our childhood. I certainly recall wearing a similar style of sandal during my schooling years, did you?

Living up to their name, Salt Water sandals are waterproof, made with brass buckles which do not rust, this obviously makes them a hit shoe for the Australian beach lifestyle.

Yesterday, I ventured into two local opportunity shops for a 'quick look' and found a pair of sandals which resemble Salt Water's style. These tan flats are not waterproof, but at $6, they came home with me yesterday.

I am with you. I am also in love with Saltwater Sandals and wishing I have me a pair and for my little girl. I have been online searching for a great deal on a pair or two of Salwater Sandals. Hope I get it this summer.
