He loves 'em!

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit: True to size

Got these for my boyfriend after he saw how much I've enjoyed my Chacos over the last 2 years. He initially ordered a size 12 since he normally wears an 11.5 and thought his big toe should have more room than he actually found necessary. Backcountry was super helpful with the return (even after our dog destroyed the original packaging) and got him the right size very quickly. Overall he's been loving wearing them as his only summer shoe and is geeking out over his new tan lines.

One sandal to rule them all

Whenever I wear these hiking, everybody asks "€œhow can you hike in those?"€™ My reply, "€œhow can you not!"€ Chaco has designed something that is the perfect shoe for summer. I wear these all summer because I can do anything in them, and I do mean anything. Approaches to the crag are made easy with these because of their durable Vibram sole that has fantastic traction, much better compared to the Yampa sole (Unaweep aka-the workhorse€). When I wear these hiking I take advantage of the fact that they are sandals, when you come to a river crossing you can just charge right through it, and cool off. In fact the Chaco sandal is the choice sandal for river guides. The foot bed in these is actually certified by the Podiatric Association of America. It is incredibly comfortable with great arch support. Many friends of mine have used them when they travel because they are so comfortable to walk in for extended periods on time. Overtime the sandal begins to form to your foot; you'€™ll never want another sandal again.
I love these sandals, the nylon straps are soft and I have had zero issues with them cutting into my feet or causing blisters. The coolest part of the straps is not only the many color variations, but the killer tan line that develops after prolonged use. The tan line is a dead giveaway of someone who loves them just as much as I do. They are very adjustable, and will fit almost any size foot. When sizing the Unaweep, base the size you need off of arch support, the length is not crucial unless your toes are hanging over the end.
There are a few drawbacks to these sandals, as with anything, it isn'€™t perfect. They are heavy for a sandal, compared to their little brother, the Yampa, they are noticeably heavier. Also when hiking you have to mind your steps, because of the open toe design you can stub your toe, if you plan your steps this is easily avoidable. Dirty feet is another drawback, especially if you live in a dry climate, or a really wet climate, you will have to do some serious scrubbing after a week long hiking trip. Some of us like those dirty toes though! :)
I use these almost every day and will continue too until the durable sole has worn out. I recommend these sandals to anyone who doesn'€™t want a conventional hiking shoe, beach shoe, or walking shoe. The versatility of these sandals is what makes them so great, and why I will never get rid of mine.

Love the sandals hate the stench!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Love the sandals hate the stench! Have only had the sandals for a couple of months this summer, love them! However I think I have to get rid of them, walked through wet sand once which allowed water in the cracks where the sandals adjust and boy do they stink! I've washed a couple times and they are fine but as soon as they get wet again the stench returns. For example last night went to waterpark with kids, got shoes a little wet and today they stink terrible.

Unless anybody has some ideas on how to fix my wife will make me get rid of these.

Well I just came back from a colossal camp trip with my sons. We all had a brand new pair of the Z2's. We took them hiking and through the Rio Grande river, even took them canyoneering and a little rock scaling. Needless to say they took a beating but not our feet. The sandals are amazingly comfortable and built to last. I came home and ordered a pair of the Z1's. They do run close to size. I wear a 9.5 in all shoes, these are perfect in the 9, the 10's were too big. If you are on the fence about theses sandals get them, I'm pretty sure you wont be disappointed.

Love the Z/2 and use it as my approach shoe most of the time since I hate putting my toes back into prison after the climb. I wear a size 10.5 runner and the 10 fits great.

I have 3 or 4 pair of chacos and just bought my brother a pair. I love the footbed on them. The straps (especially the toe strap) can be a bit uncomfortable at first but just takes some getting used to. It's a great feature once you do - gives your sandals a good solid feel. I've done everything in them from backpacking to river trips to hanging out around a fire.

My husband was unsure about using Chacos, but I knew he'd love them so I ordered them anyway. From the second he put them on to the first hike, he couldn't say anything bad about them. He's officially a Chaco guy now!

First and foremost I want to say that this company kicks some serious a** with its customer service. 10 outta 10. I tried these on in the store and was happy with the fit, unfortunately when I got them they were running big. That being said these folks took great care of me and set up the exchange for a smaller pair with no trouble. I will be ordering my gear from this site for a long time to come.

Same As Always

This is my 3rd pair. You wont find a better river sandal out there. Works great for those side hikes and around the boat. Just don't forget to bring the salve on those longer trips, because your feet are going to dry out!

Built to support you and your pack too.

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

There are no other sandals I've felt I could hike for days in, with my pack on.

The great arch support and very thick durable soles are made solidly, with just the right slight flex. I've tried them ones without the big toe loop, and this Z2 style is more solid and stable underfoot, especially through running water. The tops are patterned to be grippy when wet and also comfortable, not leaving lines in your feet. Where the chord passes into the sole is tight enough to not let sand in, or even to allow water squeaking.

I recommend males buying one size less than closed toe shoe size.

Great do-everything sandal!

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

I love these sandals! I use these mainly for floating the river and going cliff-jumping, but they also do very well on hikes. I like having the extra toe-strap. I can use it to really secure the sandal if I am doing something that requires a little more foot control. I can also put my foot over the toe-strap if i am wanting more of a comfortable feel. Great all-around sandal. Chaco sets the standard!

Wide option for women.

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit: True to size

I bought some women's keens as a gift, but they were too narrow for her wide foot. There weren't any wide in women's available so I tried mens. She's a size 9 in women's, so I got her the 7 in mens and they fit great! I showed her how to adjust them, by pulling the straps through the sole, and she's in love. She said she wore them all summer.

My go to Shoe!

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

If its above 45 degrees out, these are on my feet. I have worn them for everything from backpacking trips on the AT, music festivals, days on the beach, to shopping around town. They go on my feet as soon as I take off the bike, running, or kayaking shoes. (Sometimes even ski boots if its not bitter cold!)If you want a pair of sandals, these are them. Yes sometimes they take some getting used to, but trust me they are worth it.

They are easily adjustable by just pulling on the webbing one way or the other and once you get them adjusted to your feet, they fit great. Sometimes the webbing gets stuck but just get them wet and it will loosen things up!

Also they last forever. I have own a pair of these that are at least 7 or 8 years old and they are still in great condition. I just upgraded to a new pair only because I won them in a contest. They old ones are still kicking. I will add, that the Z/2 is the way to go. Yes it may feel weird at first to have your big toe surrounded by a strap but they stay in place and make long mile days a lot better.

Everyone of my paddling, hiking, biking, kayaking, skiing friends own and wear their Chacos religiously. If you want to fit in the outdoor world, you better own a pair of Chacos!

But.......

I will add that I do not recommend these as a go to shoe for whitewater kayaking. A lot of people starting off show up in these. Yes they work great for hikes along the river or other water based sports but for whitewater, get a close toed shoe that has a sole specifically made for walking on wet rocks and that will protect your foot when moving around on rough banks. I like anything from Astral or the Five-Ten Water Tennie. DO NOT where Chacos in your boat if you plan on doing any whitewater kayaking other then playboating at the local play hole or running less then class 3 rapids.

Good sandals for hot weather hiking

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

These took my feet awhile to get used to, but once I built up a few calluses they became super comfortable. They are great for hot weather and anywhere with a lot of water crossings.
I usually wear a 9.5 and I got these in a 9 and they fit perfectly.

Straps will rub your feet raw!

Straps will rub your feet raw!

My feet after a couple mile walk in the Z2's. I really wanted to love these, and am a big fan of the comfortable and supportive soles. But no matter how loose you make the toe straps, as you walk they will pull them selves tight until your big toe is being strangled, and after awhile it will rub/burn the skin right off your feet.

Responded on

I had this happen more than once. I gave these more than a fair chance as I have worn them for 3-4 years on rivers, lake Powell, hiking, climbing approaches, camping and so on. Most people love these; but, they just weren't for me. Mine still have tons of life; but, I decided to go back to my roots and just purchased a pair of original Teva's. Can't wait to be able to wear sandals all day without discomfort. Again, most love them and the soles are rad ...they just aren't for all feet and they weren't for mine.

Acquired Taste

  • Fit: True to size

So I get the shoes, right?

They're great, first of all, but it takes me a little while to figure out how I want them to fit and adjust the straps and whatnot. But that's not too important. They look good. They feel good. They look good.

But then I decided to wear them all day every day for a week right after I got them, and I blistered up pretty bad in the spots where the straps rubbed. This was frustrating, but got over it after couple days of just wearing for a few hours at a time.

Super great after that. I wear them pretty much all the time with anything (not advised).

Pros:
Excellent versatility
Looks great
Easy maintenance
Convenient
Comfortable (after time)

Cons:
Takes time to break in
Smells rank after a few days
Constant strap adjustment

Hooked for life

I absolutely love my chacos I use them for everything from walking around campus to hitting the trails. I have the shoes in two different colors. These are about the only things that I wear on my feet year round. Yes I said year round, I wear these bad boys with socks. These are extremely durable, the shoes are 100% worth the money!

High five to a fellow Chacos-with-socks wearer!
