My kicks for 6 months out of the year
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
These flip flops are simply amazing. I've been wearing them since 2005 and I absolutely love them. I usually end up wearing them the majority of the time for about 4-6 months out of the year. I've done everything in them, wade fished rivers, hiked, cruised around the city, drive, etc. They are super comfy, extremely durable, and I give them the certified awesome stamp. The only pair of flip flops you'll ever need, and if you blow them out, Chaco will replace or repair them for free.
Standard Chaco wear
I own this sandal and think it is great for the desert or the beach. The straps to take some time to wear in to where they are comfy just like most Chaco sandals. They have lasted well so far but I have not abused them like I have my Z1's. They are comfy but many of the surf brands like reef are more comfy in my opinion. I wear a size 9 in the Z1 and a 10 in these.
When you first look at the price you may ask yourself "Why would I pay 60 bucks for a flip-flop?", let me tell you why. These are hands down the most bomber, comfortable, kick-ass flops around. I've had mine for 3+ years and they are still going strong. You can even send them to Chaco and have them re-soled after you wear through the tread. Don't think of these as sandals but as an investment in awesomeness.

These are the go-to flip flop! Good for hiking, chilling, fighting dragons, etc. I have never found a flip as resilient.
Small and narrow, but comfortable
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
They look really good but are kind of narrow and wears just a little small. You should reconsider buying them if you are used to wide sandals or shoes in general or buy them one size larger if you like a more relaxed fit on your sandals.
They are a bit heavier than regular beach (foam like?) sandals.
Best floppy floppys I've owned
These are the best flip flops I've owned hands down. They're a little pricey for a flip flop but I can assure you they will last long and in the end be worth it. They take about two weeks to break in and once they are they are soooo comfy. I found they ran pretty true to size but if you're in doubt go up with the sizing.
Do it, Do it!!
Best flip you can buy! Super comfy, good traction when went, very durable, and fit true to size! They were a bit tight in the strap at first for me but one you get them wet a few times and broke in good to go!
Classic Chacos. They're a little heavy, but super durable and offer incredible traction on slick rocks. I used them for an 8 mile hike through sand, stream crossings, etc.
At first, they hurt like hell but once you get your summer feet they're fine.
they are not the prettiest flips I have ever worn but they are the most comfortable. first thing I do when I get back from a long hike is put these on.
I have to admit, that before I bought these sandals I was buying the cheapest foam flip flops I could get/find. I always had a pair and they lasted for a few months until the strap broke and I was left sandall-less again.
I finally caved and put some some money into a pair of shoes and I went with the brand I had heard the most about: Chaco. And I have to say, that I am not disappointed. These shoes fit my foot better than anything I had used so far. They take a little while to break into, but when you do, they are magic. My friends wear them but they can't understand because it is worn for my foot, but these sandals feel great.
And the quality of the strap and sole seem to be pretty solid as well. I hope to get many good uses out of these shoes in the future.
been wearing these for a about a week now, a litle difficult to put on at first but once you get used to them they are great. very well made and comfortable. threw my old sandles away after i felt what a good quality pair felt like.
Best pair of flip-flops I've ever owned. Not a big fan of flip-flops in general, but these are amazingly comfortable. I mainly use them to take the dogs out on early summer mornings.
Spent the entire summer of 2011 (give or take a couple adventures) in nothing but my Chaco Flips! Excellent support, stay on your feet and look great. There is a break-in period of about a week and a half if you're feet aren't used to Chaco's straps. But soon enough you'll forget there ever was an issue. I fully expect to get 1, if not 2 or 3, more summers out of these guys.
I've worn Havaianas for years for the ease of use when I'm driving tens of thousands of miles over the summer for work. For the most part I drive barefoot and needed something for getting in and out of the van. Unfortunately that led to a lot of pain and discomfort from my toes needing to grip them while walking. A fan of the Zs, I wear them non-stop whenever I'm not driving, I decided to give the Flips a chance.
It was the perfect solution. They fit snug and secure enough that your toes no long have to grip to keep them on and the sole provides ample support. They're a little harder to slip on and off but mine also aren't fully broken in yet.
Been walking around on these for most of the summer now, and I love them. I even picked up another pair on SAC (dont know why, because they show no sign of wear) the strap has gotten a little looser, the only reason I noticed, is because when I first got them they seemed a little tight, but now they fit real well. They have great arch support, and dont get funky after days and days of use. Flat out replaced my Reef sandals.
1,000 days of wear later...
still holding on by a thread (or a few threads)
great sandal, slightly narrower than the z1/z2 sandals
chaco flip on top of z2 sandal. The other side is lined up (but a shot directly from above would not show the width discrepancy as well).
I almost bought these sandals several times over the past several years, and the glowing reviews finally lured me in. Unlike my past three pairs of flips, I won't be leaving these unattended on the floor for my English Bulldog to tear apart. I've only had them a few weeks, but have been wearing them everywhere and really really like 'em. While break-in was a little rough, the straps have formed to my feet and they are really comfortable. They look beach casual, yet provide a lot of support and grip, while staying glued to your feet. We will see how they last, but they seem really well built and so far so good. In fact, I just ordered a pair of Z2's.
Break em in
These sandals are awesome, but be aware that they take about a week to really break in to your foot shape.
