Chaco Tedinho Pro Water Boot

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I am always looking for a great water shoe that provides protection, can be used with or without socks, and is comfortable. I bought this product last year and wore them on four extended river trips (Yampa, Grand Canyon, and 2 Middle Fk of Salmon). These shoes performed well with or without wet socks and were extremely comfortable, especially for my wide feet. The high top keeps sand and gravel out and the soft upper works well with the lacing system to provide adequate ankle support. They appear to show no wear and tear so far and I look forward to using them for the 2014 season. Like all water shoes, they start getting a little stinky after a while, but wash well. I highly recommend this product for rafting.

Unanswered Question

How does this outsole compare to the Bulloo?...

How does this outsole compare to the Bulloo? I'm trying to decide which outsole to get, but the marking is a concern. I'm going to be working off of a boat, landing on beaches(usually rocky and slippery), then making hikes through wet rainforests. How much better grip does the Pro outsole provide on slippery surfaces than the bulloo?

Best Water Shoes Yet!

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I recently purchased these boots, so my review is based on minimal experience. That being said, these are the best water shoes I've ever work. I recently did some river hopping up Road Prong in Cherokee, NC. Unlike most Chacos I've experienced in water/slippery rocks, these did NOT slip. Where I would be sure to fall with any other shoe, these boots gripped. I was not hesitant to make any maneuver. They also allow nothing but water in them, no sand/dirt. They drain fast. The high tops gave me ankle suppport. After playing in the water, I did a 2 mile hike up to Chimney Tops. Its a very steep hike. The shoes performed great as hiking shoes. The Chimney Tops itself is a giant, steep rockface to climb up. The shoes again, did not slip. Highly recommended shoe. Lets just hope they are durable and have a high life expectancy. So far, very minimal wear.

Cons: They smell bad, as all Chaco's tend to as soon as they get wet.

the only con i can find this far is that they dont stay tied very well. I have to double knot them if i want them to stay on

Excellent Water Shoe

Took this pair of shoes to Boundary Waters for a week. Up there, don't count on dry feet if you want to wear shoes. These shoes were stable and could handle the tough portages, did not get weighted down with extra water and were very comfortable. Take them off at night, remove the insole and they are dry in just a couple of hours. Did not get a lot of sand in through the weep holes, so there wasn't much to clean. I wore a pair of smartwool socks to prevent blisters, but only 1 pair, no liners.

I would say that these are way better than the jungle combat boots others were wearing, because of the weight.

Backcountry also was the least expensive vendor. Don't hesitate, get these boots!

Can anyone at Backcountry.com say for sure...

Can anyone at Backcountry.com say for sure if this model has the split toe? The picture suggests "no" but the description says "yes".

Responded on

No there is no split toe. This shoe is like a more supportive, cushioned, heavy duty Converse Chuck Taylor All Star shoe.
