Just what the doctor ordered
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
The support and comfort of these Chacos are perfect for my high arches and narrow feet. I have recently deemed them "my hiking shoes" because they are way more comfortable than any actual close-toed hiking shoe I have encountered. They make the every approach and hike a little bit more comfortable, and they are excellent for water sports as well!

This is my fourth pair of Chacos to own over the past 5 or 6 years, and these have by far been my favorite! I have really enjoyed the thinner, more flexible sole. I've done some trekking in these and they have proven to keep my feet secure and comfy!
Chaco Updraft Bulloo Sandal - Women's

Are these the updated sandals without the plastic holding the straps to the soles?
Design flaw that Chaco has since fixed!
These sandals have plastic heel risers (those tabs at the back attaching the straps to the sole) that make them unwearable due to continuous rubbing and blisters. Since EVERYONE who actually wears these shoes has this problem explained in their reviews and emails to Chaco, they have since released a newer version with fabric heel risers. Look at the picture, and DO NOT BUY any with plastic heel risers. Otherwise, these sandals are wonderful, and the sole is much more flexible, lighter, and comfortable than some of the more heavy-duty models, like the Yampa and Unaweep.
Nice Chaco Update!
My girlfriend's chacos are so comfortable and versatile. They are great for everyday, but also great for light hiking and they are perfect for rafting trips. The straps allow you to adjust them to your individual feet and the arch support is good as well.
We coulda been great together...
These are so close to being the best Chaco's ever. The lighter weight is noticeable compared to the Unaweep, and the smooth footbed is super comfy. I even grew to like the more narrow design. Sleek. They are so sleek. When I took them out of the box and put them on, I was skeptical, though. Once my foot was in them, I notice that the heel strap was pushing my foot forward, causing my toes to hang off a bit. There was a ton of room in the heel though! I still wore em', and after getting them wet and wearing them awhile, the straps stretched a bit, and allowed my heal to slip into proper alignment. I found myself constantly having to adjust the straps, though. But thats not my biggest gripe. I wore these on a hike that really should have been mellow, but I decided to do some exploring. What was supposed to be 2 hours turned into 4...and at hour 3 the plastic pieces on the outside of the ankle had rubbed my skin raw. I couldn't wear any form of Chaco for 2 weeks. Detrimental to someone who has permanent Chaco tanned feet. I tried to wear them again after my ankles healed, but feet have a tendency not forget the pain you put them through. Sadly they're going to have to go back. I'll revisit this style again when they change that plastic piece.
I'm curious if anyone has an opinion on...
I'm curious if anyone has an opinion on this new Updraft vs. the Yampa?
