Behold the Unaweep.

After yet again blowing out another pair of flip-flops, turn to the Chaco Men's Z/2 Unaweep Sandal. This bomber sandal has a 360 degree Wrap-Fit adjustable strap, a toe loop, and heel-leash for superb stability when you trudge through a slippery creek, campus, or your campsite. Plus, you won't have to worry about the Unaweep's soft, durable polyester webbing blowing out on you anytime soon. Chaco also gave this comfy sandal a Vibram outsole with all-purpose TC-1 rubber compound so you can easily move around on your buddy's fishing boat or play around in a field of boulders.

Great Sandal

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I bought these sandals before a recent mission trip to Mexico. I initially bought them because they look absolutely amazing in the backcountry.com exclusive colorway. I have been very pleased with the fit and with the product overall.

I usually like to have my sandals fit pretty loosely. So, I did not tighten the top strap all the way. After walking a good distance (~1-2 miles) I developed hot spots on the sides of my heels where my heel met the tabs that come out of the sole on either side of the heel. However, I tightened the sandal and continued walking with considerably less friction.

The sole is well cushioned and very sturdy. Just the other day I played basketball in my driveway for about 45 minutes while wearing these sandals. I had no problems.

I would definitely recommend these sandals to a friend and I look forward to wearing them the rest of this summer and many summers to come.

Do you have the Chaco Z/2 Unaweep Sandal...

Do you have the Chaco Z/2 Unaweep Sandal -Backcountry exclusive style (the blue and red aztec design) in the Chaco Z/1 Unaweep Sandal version (without the toe strap)..

Please tell me you do. If you don't, do that and you will get a lot of new customers im sure. I prefer the open toed chaco because i can wear socks with it and its more comfortable. Thank you!!

Hi Cameron,

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news! We unfortunately do not have the Backcountry exclusive pattern in the Z1.

I'm converted....

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

I don't know if I'll get another pair of hiking shoes again, because these Backcountry Exclusive Chacos are all I need. The blue straps are the only part that makes these Chacos exclusive to Backcountry--no goats were harmed in the process of making these shoes.

So far I've taken these sandals to work, on walks with my dog, long hikes, and a backpacking/climbing trip in Idaho. There hasn't been one time that I wished I had a pair of hiking shoes. These things are stable, comfy, and surprisingly soft against the skin. I thought my skin would chafe at the beginning, but they didn't.

I usually wear a size 9.5, so I got these in a 9 and they fit perfectly.

Heavy Duty Sandals

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

My buddy recommended these sandals for hiking on the approach, river crossings and in camp. Used them at the Coachella Music Festival. While they are not the most stylish they have great support and traction that saved my feet during the long days.

I like the toe strap for the extra support and it is possible to wear socks by just not using the toe strap.

Looks cool; works well

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

These are good sandals. First off, the look sick and second they are durable. Tevas are easier to get on and from my experiences more comfortable, but less built for hiking.

BC Exclusive's are majestic

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

It's a chaco. It does everything you want. There's your standard rating. Plus-the BC exclusive straps are so dang good lookin too. This is what makes it so fun. I've had Chaco freaks get perplexed on how I am in possession of straps they had never seen before. Get it, go outside, be happy.

ALSO. The "true to size" means it's true to Chaco's sizing. Please try on a pair before ordering your normal shoe size.

Soops is right on about quality and looks of Chaco's sandals. Great strap colors. Wish they'd come down in price a bit, so I'm always looking for sales. Ha! Yeah, you better check the size: I need an 11.5, but they don't come in half sizes, so I buy the 12 and live with the extra that is usually on the toe end of the sandal. With 11s, my heal hangs off too much. peace

Dang,

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

Really bummed about the strap fit. Usually it takes me 2-3 months to hone in the straps for my feet, but these kept cinching tighter every time I wore them. Super annoying. These aren't the same design as the past, bummer. The sole is great for hiking and all around use. I hope the strap cinching is isolated to these pair. It really is annoyingly painful on the toe strap.

Is the BC Exclusive strapping any different from a regular Chaco?

Same look and feel. But something is funky that I haven't noticed before with the fit.

Great Sandal!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large

I bought these sandals a few weeks ago and have enjoyed them greatly. They are very comfortable and well-constructed. Unfortunately, I ran into a sizing issue. I wear a 9 and 1/2 and decided to go with a 10 instead of a 9. The 10 is a little big on my foot and the straps are too long. Through some careful modifications, I was able to shorten the straps, and they now fit nicely. If you wear a half size, I would recommend going down a size. Even if your feet are on the bigger side of the "half-size" range, this sandal leaves plenty of room to adjust the straps. A hundred dollars is a lot of spend on a pair of sandals, but these are worth the money.

Exclusive color is enough reason for me

Though I have another pair, I figure since I literally wear them every day it would be cool to get a unique color that would only be around for one season to add to the collection. Why not have more of what you love!

Love em!

I've always loved these. They continue to perform great no matter what you throw at them. The burly build quality doesn't help me much though since they keep coming out with cool new styles that I want, so I keep buying more... very clever Chaco

Split the fence on the size

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

I fall somewhere between an 11 and 12 in shoes. For dress/casual shoes I usually run closer to 11 (11.5's are great when I can find them) but for athletic/running shoes I almost always get a 12. After reading several reviews saying to size down for halves, I ordered these in an 11 and they just barely fit. My heel wanted to slide off sideways on the edge of the heel riser. I went to a local place and tried on the 12 and they worked much better for me so I am swapping them out. Returns at Back Country are super easy so I am not worried about this in the slightest. Hope this helps anyone who falls between sizes on these. **Update** Exchanged for a 12 and they fit great. Super comfortable . Looking forward to many years of use.

Exactly the same for me only a 9.5 and 10. If you're on the fence size up peeps.

Hiking

I hiked 20 miles in these and they are amazing! The lower saddle of the tetons was nothing for this shoe!

Awesome, couldn't be happier with these

I bought these sandals last spring. I was a little hesitant to pay so much for sandals but a girlfriend of mine at the time swore by hers so I tried these out. They're wonderful. They are pricey but worth the money because they're so sturdy and you can use them so often. I use mine to walk around town as an every day shoe and on easier approaches to the rock. I also used them on a three week backpacking trip in the Carribean, even when carrying my 40 pound pack. Very solid, very comfortable, and no signs of breaking down after the backpacking and a full summer of regular use.

I was a little hesitant about the strap going around the big toe because I don't normally like that kind of thing but I don't even notice it except that it really holds my foot in place on hills/talus slopes. I would highly recommend this product. Thank you Chaco!

I wear a 10-11 depending on brand and got these in a 10. Definitely recommend going down the half size if you're wondering.

Also, these did have a break-in period of a couple days where they weren't as comfortable. They rubbed my big toe and the bottom of the side of my foot under my ankle bone. I put some mole skin on the sandal for a few days and never had issues again

Great sandals

I love these sandals! I wear a 9.5 in street shoes and wear a 9 in Chacos so i would say go a half size down, especially for skinny feet like I have. Only grief I have is once adujsted properly that the strap for tightning the sandal drags the ground and I step on it all the time. Had to do a little custom fabricating to prevent it from fraying from walking on it.

I have a bad right knee and the sandals support my feet really well and improve my stride so I can walk further without pain, which is a huge plus for a pair of sandals!

Thanks!
