    Sizing Information

    To determine your Tidewater size, follow these steps:

    1. Stand on a piece of paper and trace around your feet. Be sure you lean forward a bit. Grab a pal to help with this part if you can.

    2. Measure the length of your feet from heel to the tip of your longest toe.

    3. Measure the width of each foot at the widest point.

    4. Subtract about 1/4 inch (1/2 centimeter) from the width measurement to compensate for your writing utensil.

    5. Use the size conversion chart below to determine your Tidewater size.

    Historically Tidewater Sandals have run about a half size small and we generally recommend you order a size up if you are a half size, have a wide foot or prefer extra room.  Note your Tidewater Sandals are made to mold to your foot after wearing them. We recommend wearing them around your home or office before taking them on their first long walk.  Please note, due to the handmade nature of our product and differences between materials, some styles may fit slightly snugger at first. Rest assured, they will loosen up to become a perfect fit as your foot molds to the our proprietary EVA footbed.



    Size up if you're between sizes.

    Cushioned heel and toe pad for all-day comfort.

    Flexible arch support creates added balance.

    Our proprietary brushed dual-density EVA foot bed is molded to hug your feet and prevent them from slipping.

    Comfort Nylon Webbing on the underside of the strap.

    Care instructions

    We recommend spot treating any fabric stains using a gentle stain remover and hand washing your Tidewaters in the sink with dish soap and warm water to keep them looking their best.

    Questions frequently asked of our team

    Where are they made?

    China, South America, and Mexico

    Will they fit?

    Our shoes are not offered in wide or half sizes, so if you are between sizes or have a wider foot, you can still wear Tidewaters - just size up to the next full size. That means if you're a size 8.5, you should order a size 9. View our size chart to find your perfect fit.

    What are the materials?

    Our classic Boardwalk line is made from premium EVA materials and is reinforced with a cushioned footbed, and incredible arch support for all the added balance you could need. Each pair is finished by hand-lasting the show and inspected for quality before leaving the factory.
