In the past, I have hiked all over the mountains and trails of Rio de Janeiro in nothing more than Havaianas Trekker flip flops because shoes are uncomfortable for me after a while. The Havaianas were great but lets face it; they have no tread and are not designed for hiking. I am getting ready to return to Rio for more hiking adventures and a few month ago I decided to search for a better option. Three pairs of so called "hiking sandals" later, I was no closer to a solution. I only had two chafed and blistered feet and an empty wallet to show for my efforts. And, I was only WALKING in them. I googled "hiking sandals" and found Chacos. I realize from reading reviews that not everyone is going to have the same experience because everyone's physiology is different. I am VERY glad that I gave them a shot! I have had them a month and have walked many miles in them and can't wait to get them in the mountains. They are supremely comfortable and actually seem to correct a pronation problem I have with my left foot. The straps are infinitely adjustable and do not chafe my feet. Not a blister in sight. I also love the way they look and am currently bidding on a second pair. Like I said; I know not everyone is going to have the same experience but they have worked out very well for me. I couldn't be more pleased!
