Im trying to love these sandals, but my feet don't agree. I keep getting blisters. I did a 9 mile hike in them the other day and haven't been able to wear them since. Even around town I get hot spots. Maybe I'm adjusting them wrong. I normally wear a 10-10.5 so I went with the 10s. any suggestions?

Several: Chacos run large for there size, so consider going down another half size. If you exchange them for the z/1, you can wear socks underneath while your feet break in. It's possible that your feet just don't fit chacos well; maybe the wides will work better for you; maybe you need to try other brands. Chacos don't really break in like soft-soled sandals, and 9 miles is a pretty good ways to walk in sandals that your feet aren't familiar with.
