Yampa. It's just fun to say.
- Adjust'em uppers use a single strap, threaded through the footbed, to offer a durable and customizable fit
- AddStride footbed is gender-specific, uses a sculpted heel cup to keep your foot from sliding, and offers aggressive arch support to control pronation
- Lightweight Yampa sole uses medium-sized lugs and water drainage channels to offer supreme traction in the water or on wet surfaces
- Vibram soles are resoleable if you wear your Chaco's down to a nub traveling, boating, and generally raising the gnar bar

Rock solid for rigorous hiking and comfy
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: Runs large
I wanted to travel light for my 3-week trip to Guatemala and needed shoes that would take me from city streets in casual skirts to rough trails. I fretted over my choices and hoped these would work out (I tend to get blisters easily). Though I brought a pile of bandages I never once needed one and never used the backup sandals I'd brought in case these gave me trouble. The footbed is amazing, and with the easily adjusted straps, my footing even on rocky, gnarly, slippery trails was rock solid. I loved how I could adjust them when my feet swelled after being on the plane for many hours, ensuring they always fit perfectly. In fact, I loved them so much I'm ordering two more pairs in other colours. One note about sizing: I usually wear 9 or 8.5 in other brands I got these in 8 in-store and they're perfect.
hard to adjust
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
I just ordered these shoes and I've had then for 5 hours and I've only adjusted one shoe. The diagram on the box only shows one shoe and I can't adjust the other. The shoe that I am able to adjust is very comfortable; however.
Chaco Love in the 406
Taking a break while hiking up the trail on Big Mountain. Perfection.
Amazing, Will Last For A Lifetime!
They look great! When I first go them they didn't fit quite right, once they're broken they are a dream. I haven't taken them off since I purchased them! I use they for causal dress and hiking,
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
I bought these sandals for a three-week trip to Europe. I only wanted to pack one pair of shoes but need arch support or my feet can't make it through the day. They far exceeded my expectations!
I really wanted to love these!
I bought these knowing how many people loved them and was optimistic that I would love them as well. I wore these for four hours on a easy flat hike and came back with two blisters on each foot. Also almost twisted my ankle a couple times and could not adjust the straps the right way. They were either too tight in the front and perfect in the ankle or too loose in the back and perfect I'm the toe. I would buy these to wear instead of flip flops but not for trail walking or "outdoorsy" activities. Cute shoe, but when my feet kill, I don't care how stylish they are!
Chaco ZX/2 Yampa Sandal - Women's
The only issue is that that strap you use to tighten the sandal is a bit long if you have a slender foot.
I love them!
The only reason I didn't give these a 5 star rating is because they're not necessarily the kind of shoe you can wear with anything. BUT they're comfortable, stylish and are of a very good quality. Plus, this website offers them 25% off...can't beat that!
If you have never owned a pair of Chaco's don't worry about how "hard" it is to adjust the shoes. It's not hard, it just takes patience. If you want them to be comfy right out of the box, it isn't going to happen. You have to adjust the straps to your foot, which can take about an hour or so of wearing them. But it's not "difficult" or "hard."
Does the Yampa have as good of support as...
Does the Yampa have as good of support as the others?
Yes. It's just the lower-profile, lighter-weight outsole, and vegan construction that sets it apart. Some folks like them better than the Unaweep because it's quite a bit lighter.
No difference in Support.
do they come in wide?
These are great as far as being a sandal with a vibram sole, and I like this new Yampa style sole over the traditional options. The double strap is always a nice touch, and seems like it helps to customize the fit better than one wide strap, and the green colors are especially awesome. They take some time to figure out the best strap adjustment, but I am also convinced I need the wide version, which does not seem to be available (or wasn't at the time I bought these).
So I would caution anyone with wide feet to seek out the wide version, otherwise, if you're a Chaco fan, you're bound to enjoy these.
My new Yampa Fiestas!
So comfy; wearing them all around the house because the colors make me smile!
