    The Chaco Z/2 Unaweep Sandals sturdy your foot like a hiking boot for summer hiking and hanging out.

    The Chaco Z/2 Unaweep Women's Sandal is perhaps the most secure sandal on the planet. Its Unaweep outsole is 20% lighter than Chaco's previous sandals, and it's ideal for activities that demand solid footing in or out of water. The Z/2 sandal's strap configuration offers an adjustable toe loop that adds a measure of security to your foot, making them incredibly stable. Whether you're a river rat who needs a super grippy sandal or you just want a sturdy, great-looking pair of sandals that will last ages, the Chaco Z/2 Unaweeps will last for years.

    only good things to say

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:Runs small
    • Size Bought: 8W

    After hearing so much about how wonderful Chacos are, I decided to get a pair to see it for myself. Size: they run a bit small. I usually wear 7-7.5 and I got my Chacos in 8W. After a week of strep adjustments, they became very comfortable. The strep system is really great! it took me awhile to figure it out, but once i did, they are comfortable all the time: rain or shine or hot sweaty weather. Another thing that took me a bit to get use to is weight. This model is on the heavier side and I'm not used to my summer sandals weighing so much. It's true, they are built super well. I have done long hikes (~20 miles), approaches on variable terrain, traveling and touring new cities... they look and feel like they can handle it all. I have never had a blister (and if you do, I would assume you might need to go up a size or loosen your streps). My heels became a bit rough and thick from wearing them all the time, but it hasnt been bothering me. I would give them 5 stars if it wasnt for the weight. I've read that yampa soles are lighter, might be better. But I am happy with my purchase and I'm looking forward to spending many more summers in them.

    These shoes do it all.

    • Fit:Runs large
    • Size Bought: 7.0

    I love my Chacos! I take them hiking, traveling, canyoneering, and on every other adventure I go on. They've got great grip, don't mind getting wet, and come in the best patterns. (I got mine in Chili, and I love them.) My feet are size 8 normally, but I wear a 7 in these, so I recommend ordering a full size down. I've never quite gotten the fit right with my toe straps and might consider going without it on my next pair, but I know diehard fans of both types. I do need a little time after each winter to get my feet accustomed to them again, but the blisters give way to comfort and reliability as the weather warms up!

    I keep coming back!

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times
    • Fit:True to size
    • Size Bought: 5

    I love Chacos so much. They are like a hiking boot in sandal form. I also love how they can traverse mountains, protect my feet in water, and just be an all around comfort shoe.
    I have had a previous pair, the ZX/2 Yampa Sandal, with the double straps. I had the hardest time fitting those to my feet and still feel like I have never gotten them right. However, these took me about 30 seconds per feet and they feel awesome. I tested them out immediately in Zion and can't wait for my Chaco tan this summer.

    Toe Too Tight

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:Runs small

    Chacos are probably the best shoes ever invented. My first pair lasted me 10 year. What else lasts ten years?? When I finally had to retire my veterans, I decided to get the same style. However, the new pair was not the same. My issue is mostly with the big toe loop. No matter how much I loosen it, as I walk around it tightens until it is too painful. Now, I just push the loop down and don't worry about it. Excellent shoes, but in 10 years, I may go with the Z/1.

    Toe Too Tight

    Great durability

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

    I love me some chacos. What's great about them is that you can wear them to school, around town, hiking, on the river, and (if you're a geologist) with socks! I always bring them with me when I know I'll be hiking in and out of the water, or with some heavy mud in-between. A lot of the time I get lazy and just put my big ol' toe on top of the toe strap instead of through it.... much easier to do on the single strap then the double strap. You can wear these shoes for years and the sole will hardly show the wear.

    Great durability

    chaco Z/2 great!

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

    just bought these last summer and i am in love with them wore them non stop all summer. The fit is very true to size. At the end of the day my feet are not tired like with some of the other sandals i have owned. From now on these will be the only ones i wear!!!

    Champion Chacos!

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    These shoes are, without a doubt, my favorite thing I've ever purchased. My loyal pair and I have been together for three years now, and we've hiked terrains ranging from mighty mountains to barren deserts (and everything in between). I usually sport a size 7.0-7.5, but I got an 8.0 in these and they fit impeccably.



    Personally, I dig the toe loop. I grew up with an older pair that was sans-toe loop, and I much prefer the extra strap - it really holds my foot onto the footbed.



    Note: Don't take these bad boys out on a long expedition until you've broken them in, they take some time to get familiar with.



    CONCLUSION: Seriously, buy these shoes! They even look chic with socks.

    Champion Chacos!

    SO GREAT!

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

    When I first got mine, they hurt my feet because I have no arch in my feet and these have arch. Once my feet got used to them and they got worn down, they are the best. I wear them all the time, in and out of the water. They are easy to get on and off and they worked great for me while I was working at a summer camp. They withstood lots of hiking, swimming, and rough terrain, and the soles are still in almost perfect condition. These are worth the money!

    Chacos Rock!

    • Fit:True to size

    I got my first pair of Chacos 2 years ago and they still look brand new, I have worn them hiking, kayaking, traveling, and I even wore them at my wedding! The first time I wore them, it was on an 8 mile hike over rough,rolling terrain and they were awesome! The sizing is pretty exact too, some people might find them a little on the heavy side.

    Chacos Rock!

    Sturdy

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    I've had a pair of Unaweeps for about 5 years now, and they still are holding up GREAT! I've used them on countless numbers of river trips, hikes, and fishing excursions. They protect your feet well from the ground, but they definitely do take some breaking in each season. I finally had to replace these because I got a size too big- I thought my feet were still growing, so I purchased an 8 but they never did grow larger than a 7.5. Some folks do prefer to hop up if you're in between sizes so your toes are a little more protected. I personally prefer to size down, because I hate having the extra weight on my forefoot. Overall- great shoe.

    Need to be broken in

      My wife wore these for the first time on an 8 mile hike in Hawaii and got blisters on both feet. They probably need to be broken in a bit before going on long treks. The adjustable straps are nice but a bit difficult to pull to fit. Nice sturdy sole but not as awesome as everyone was saying, at least not yet.

      Former sceptic

      I have to admit that I thought these sandals were severely over-hyped. However, I let my boyfriend talk me into getting a pair of these when I needed to replace my old ECCO sandals. I don't say this very often, but he was absolutely right. These sandals are great. I have hiked, jogged, and I have even worn them to work where I stand up most of the day. The photo is taken at City of Rocks where I wore them basically constantly (except when sleeping) for three days. We hiked in rocky and sandy conditions and they were awesome.

      If You Love Chacos, THESE ARE THE BEST

      • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

      I have a lot of different pairs of Chacos, and I believe that the Z/2 Unaweep are the best kind that I own. They are great for just hanging out as well as running, hiking, and trekking down a river. They're the greatest and most versatile pair of Chacos that I own, and all Chacos are versatile!

      I tried Eco, Teva and these, I really liked these but the salesperson said my left foot looked too wide so I left very sad after 2.5 hours trying shoes. They didn't offer wide...the heel bed of reg width was fine, is the "wide" size wider everywhere? or more in toe bed please

      I have skinny feet and they take up pretty much the whole footbed of my Z/2s (actually wearing them as I write this). I'd say that if they fit and were comfortable, go for them. There's a good chance the salesperson didn't know what they were talking about, and you can't go wrong with ordering them from backcountry. Best site, customer service, and return policy.

      I ended up buying the men's version on my 1st pair. My feet where a bit too wide for the regular widths & at the time they didn't have any Wides in stock. The only thing I don't like about Chacos is something I'm noticing with a lot of companies lately. Different prices for the same shoe in different sizes or widths. Give me a break, these shoes are expensive enough as it is. People shouldn't charge you more money because of size or colors available. To me that is price gouging & pretty close to discriminatory.Chaco used to have a quality product. When they operated out of Co.,cared about the environment etc. Now they're made in China & I'm wondering if they're till worth the money. Not Backcountry's fault that Chaco got greedy.

      What or how big is the size difference in the womens size 8 and the womens size 8 wide? (Her old pair which is a size 8 seems to be about 1/4" wider than the size 8 medium/regular now).

      Write your question here...I purchased my chaco z/2 black sandals about 9 years ago. I got the big honking sole so I could hike in them. Do you still make these or do you only make one sole now?

      Best Answer

      Chaco used to make 3 soles, the 'dot' 5.10 Aquastealth, the Colorado cole, and the Terreno (the big honkin' hiker). They just make 2 soles now. The 5.10 Diamond Stealth and the Unaweep (which was meant to combine the Colorado sole and the Terreno sole. The Unaweep is meant to be the dry land/hiker of the two now and is lighter, but thinner than the Terreno.

      Does anyone know if there's a substantial difference between the men's and women's Z/2's? Obviously there's color, and size range, but if a men's sandal fit a woman, would the last just completely destroy her delicately gendered foot or something?

      Are these the ones made in Colorado or China? I know Chaco has recently started making ones outside the US and supposedly they do not hold up as well :(

      Best Answer

      Since July 2008. Made IN CHINA... and all for a measly 5 - 6 dollars!

      "According to Wieland, factory to factory the cost to make the sandals will be $10 to $11 less in China than Paonia. With shipping and the import duty of 37-1/2 percent the total savings per pair of sandals will be between $5 and $6."

      I no longer plan to purchase Chacos until this changes.

      ****This is an update from a CHACO employee.****


      Dear Chris,
      Last summer Chaco laid off the entire production crew and farmed out the last of our American made products to China. Over 100 people lost their jobs. On May 29 the rest of us will be laid off. Chaco has sold to Wolverine Worldwide.

      Nobody here was thrilled about moving to China.
      Nobody here was thrilled about Wolverine buying us. The man quoted in the article, Ed Wieland was let go since those articles were written. So now we are all being let go to join the swelling ranks of the unemployed.

      It seems as soon as we outsourced we went down the tubes.
      Wolverine will keep the Chaco label but the product will be made in China.
      Chaco will no longer be in Colorado but in Michigan.
      Thank you for your e-mail.

      I am HORRIBLY disappointed in this company for this. I absolutely love these sandals and was planning to buy more but now am rethinking it. Having been laid off this year as well I understand the impact companies like this have on the working American. I would support whole heartedly and even be willing to pay extra for items from companies refusing to give in to greed and stay in business in this country. Does anyone know of another sandal as good as these made here?

      Is there more than one sole construction on the Chaco? The first time I bought I remember there being a couple of different treads. dana

      There are different soles, here's a few:Unaweep- Non-marking sole w/ Vibram's TC-1 compound. Lightweight and self-cleaning. Diamond Stealth- ultra sticky Stealth Amphibia rubber in wet or dry conditions. Getagrip Butyl- feels like a climbing shoe
