Review by Keese on Dec. 19, 2007
3 years ago I gave these a 5 star rating. I am dropping that down to one now! In the last three years I have gone through 2 pairs of Chacos. The footbeds keep snapping. At first I thought it was because I pushed the first pair to hard useing them for climbing approach shoes etc. but the second pair's footbed also snapped and Chaco wont warranty them. These sandals look cool, and are great if you arent going to wear them all summer, or just set them in your entryway to look cool. If you are going to wear them as much as a sandal should be worn they are shit, and dont last nearly as long as 30$ addidas running shoes. Buy Tevas those at least dont have structural issues. And chacos warranty is BS since they dont seem to fix the serious problems with their shoes. get something else, really, they are way to expensive to snap every year. I mean who heard of a shoe snapping in half????
Teva but the velcro on tevas go out before the Chaco straps do.

Resoleable, restrappable. Green if you will. I originally owned the elans (without anatomical footbeds) and loved them except I couldnt wear them all day - these are excellent in all sorts of conditions. Grippy in water, stable over slightly rough terrain, great for light hiking
They're a sandal, so no closed toes means the occasional stubbing. That and they have a tight enough fit that the odd rock or whatever that finds its way under your foot is a tremendous pain in the butt.
I literally have more than 250 days of solid wear on my oldest pair, and with proper care such as flossing to get grit out, they can last a long time.
Size up to the nearest whole size for a proper fit. In other words, if you're typically a ten, go with an 11, if you're a half size, you know how to round up already.

Tough, comfortable, adjustable. It's the best sandal I've ever had. Had my current pair for 4 years and had the heel risers replaced under warranty. I'll probably buy a new pair next year because I need them resoled, and rewrapped because I wear them so much. It can go from being worn barefoot to socks easily and they dry much faster than other "Water Sandals".
They can take a bit of getting used to. Your feet need to be as tough as them if you plan on wearing them on extended hikes. And the price. Unless you shop around and snag bargains the price is typically more than its competitors but they are so much better.
Nope. They are the best.

Aggressive tred: check
Comfortable: check
secure fitting: check
arch support:check
life time warrenty:check

whats not to love

Once it fitted it the webbing puts very even pressure on the foot.
Not a bad feature but the one big continuous loop of webbing takes some adjusting and messing with when fitting the sandal for the fist time.
there are other sandals but non compare to the traction and comfort of these.

Review by wadechristian on May. 03, 2011
I have had mine for about 5 years. I got them re-soled once because it's cheaper to re-sole than it is to buy a new pair.. which is AWESOME! With the new sole.. they are just like new. Ready to take some more abuse. If you are on the fence about these.. go ahead and get them, you can thank me later. I dont like the ones with the toe straps.. but that is just my personal preference.

Review by gearjunkie4017 on Jun. 13, 2011
These things are super simple and really durable. They can be resoled which means they'll last a lifetime. They aren't hurt by water so they're great for kayaking, etc...
the first couple times you wear them they rub pretty bad. Once they're "broken in" though they're great
Chaco Z2 maybe? the only advantage of the Z2 is the toe strap

Got me the Stealth soles. Comfy and sure fitted when kayaking.
Extra long straps had to be trimmed. They seem to get a little more funky than my old Tevas.

Review by marks on Jan. 19, 2011
Survived 7 years including a 1 year climbing road trip and just now they are slowly starting to become unglued but I think that's more than fair.

Review by Sapdawg1 on Aug. 13, 2011
Have owned mine for years... resoled, rewebbed. I bought them in Wides... not sure if they still make Wides, but I will never give these up.
Heavy! Really heavy!
