Too Cute! Sun-San Seawee Sandals For Toddlers (& Adults)

Sun-San Seawee Sandals

I’ve had my eye on these Sun-San Seawee sandals for a while. Patiently waiting for the little cookie’s feet to grow big enough…

He’s nearing walking and his birthday is coming up and these will be just perfect this summer. These gorgeous little things come in adult sizes too – an American brand (originally, during World War II leather shortages, the sandals were made from military boot scraps) there are just two styles, the Salt Waters (toddler Seawee version above) with a rubbery sole and the Sun-Sans, with a stitched urethane bouncy sole. The leather is water resistent so they can be used for running in and out of the ocean and you can put them in the washing machine – I only just discovered this, full of the joys! Fun times ahead. Needless to say Sun-San have proved celebrity cat-nip and they boast a bevy of fans including Suri Cruise and Matilda Ledger (love how these little ones are style mavens already) and from the adult camp Alexa Chung (of course), Sienna Miller, Fearne Cotton et al. And if I’m not mistaken from the Instagram photo, the team at Free People are equally obsessed rocking them in red, black and silver. And decently priced too – under £30. Damn, I knew I should have picked up a pair for myself. But I’ve already committed and bought myself my summer sandals. Watch this space.
