An original design dating to the 1940’s, Salt-Water Sandals were originally made from scrap leather as a way to cope with leather shortages in World War II. Walter Hoy used the scraps to create a pair for his daughter, Margery. 

Word soon spread and before long families from all over St. Louis were asking if Walter could make sandals for their children. Now, over 75 years on and Hoy shoes' classic designs continue to deliver durable leather comfort with a fashion savvy attitude.
