Review by zephyr7863 on Feb. 20, 2011
the best sandals i've owned. they look classic and cool, and theyre really comfortable. you can go anywhere and do anything in them. you can hike 5 miles to your favorite swimming hole and swim without changing shoes. the toe strap is a huge plus. definitely worth the extra $10. if you dont want it, then you can just cinch the toe strap down and wear it like a Z 1. treads are really sticky and the midsole is strong and supports your foot.
sizing is off quite a bit. order at least a size down. adjusting the straps is a bit difficult, but once you have your size, it generally doesnt change much. i've heard of the buckle failing, but i've had mine for a while and its still like new.

Review by eswanson on Jan. 29, 2011
The single-strap design is pretty nifty, allowing you to crank it down a pretty fair amount. Also, buckles keep you much more secure than Velcro when things get wet.
Sizing: order at least a size down. They are HUGE.
Weight: how anyone could design a sandal that weighs more than shoes is beyond me.
Comfort: chafing on the ankles, pressure point between big toe and the one next to it when walking down hill at all. Feet sweat a lot in these.
Origin: when I got mine they were made in Colorado, now they have shipped away to China like everyone else. Sad day.
Weddings: people wear these to them.
Have Chaco move back to the US and make some lightweight sandals for us minimalists! They could make some great huarache-style trail runners if they just put their mind to it and quit making heavy sandals for the hippie fashionistas.

Review by Keese on Jul. 21, 2009
Comfy, makes you look like a cool paddler outdoors dude/chick
I have snapped the footbeds of two pairs of Chacos in 3 years. Which Chaco wont warranty, then I am out 70-100$. I had my old pair of Tevas for 5-6 years until the Velcro got all fuzzy on them. Chacos look cool if you arent going to use them for anything like being in water, hiking, etc. So I recommend them for anyone in NYC, Chicago etc who wants to work on their image. Otherwise dont buy them!!!
Teva anything else

Review by romleinster on Jul. 11, 2011
very comfortable and rugged
extremely versatile (walking, hiking with a pack, land, water, it does it all)
resole-able (contact chaco when the sole wears out and they'll stick a new ones on for a fraction of the cost of new sandals.)
sometimes the channels where the straps go get clogged with dirt and are hard to adjust (a quick cleaning should help, if not, I use armor-all mixed with water to get them sliding again)

Review by stevencook on Jan. 11, 2012
used this for everything from kayaking,guiding rafts, hiking on the A.T, long approach trails, light climbibing, to kicking it around town. lasted for 4 years before it died.
sometimes the sole delaminates but send em to any shoe shop and the will fix em up.

Review by myname on Apr. 22, 2012
Great all-around sandals. Solid support and the straps are durable. I hike in them and feel comfortable in them. Rafting and kayaking and swimming in them is awesome.
If you where them a lot you will get a wicked foot tan-I think it looks pretty cool.
A little heavy (not too bad) but that is what you get for the support and long-lasting nature.

This is the shoe that I will never let go of! I wear them whenever I can and everywhere I can. I have even worn them on my way to the ski lift. You will not go wrong in buying a pair of these. They are great for hiking, kayaking, swimming in the river, the beach. They are useful everywhere.
Not a bad thing can be said with my chacos!

Review by kord92 on Jan. 06, 2012
everything you could ever want in a sandal. it forms to your feet personally, it has just enough cushion and support, i swear mine have kept my feet warm in snow flurries (i dont know how though so dont take my word on that one!) best sandals ever!!
some prefer keen. i dont.

toe strap is great, has the sole of a hiking shoe, no worries about them falling off, great arch support

Review by greenvestspecial on Apr. 18, 2011
these things are totally indestructable. great for hiking, kayaking, rafting, or just chilling. I've had mine for a couple of years and i wouldn't trade them for anything. plus, you get some sweet tan lines.
i don't have any problems with them at all!
nothing comes close

Review by banderson on May. 03, 2011
Great buy! I have owned my Chacos for over 3 years, literally wearing them everywhere, comfortable and durable! Would definitely recommend this product!
After a few months the adjustments of the straps become very hard/impossible...

Most comfortable way to hike. I used my first pair for almost 5 summers and logged hundreds of miles hiking in them before the soles wore down. Love them
