After over 10 years of hiking, sailing, canoing, and skydiving in my Chaco Z1 sandals, the strap is breaking. Oh, My! I am in mourning.What is the difference between the Diamond Stealth Sandal base and the Unawrap base (which is what I think I now have).James

Responded on

James,The Stealth base uses Stealth rubber (a lot more sticker not as durable). The regular base is very durable and the rubber has good enough traction for must applications (a nice hiking lug pattern). Unless you using it for an approach sandal or are down in the river rock, go with the regular sole.You might consider making a shrine and dipping your old pair in bronze...Mahalo, Sumo
