Description

Yampa. It's just fun to say.

Coveted by river guides, outdoor professionals, and die-hards alike, the Chaco Women's ZX/2 Yampa Sandal rocks a rugged, simple, and supportive build. A tough-as-nails Vibram sole protects your foot from the elements, and the Yampa-style sole has a water-specific tread for steadfast track in wet environments. Slide your foot into the strappy upper and revel in the aggressively supportive footbed that cradles your foot through adventure after adventure.

  • 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

Here's what others have to say...

I usually wear a size 10.5, should i round up or down?

Best Answer Responded on

Hi Mallory,
Tough to say 100% without trying them on- most people do choose to size down and that works perfect, but some prefer to size up for the extra toe protection! We can always get you set up with an order for both sizes and offer a free return on the ones that don't work. Feel free to give us a call at 800.409.4502 or use our live chat feature online and we can get that set up!

Great Sandal

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

This is my second pair of Yampas and I would have to say that these ones are even better than the last. The new ones seem to be more durable than the last ones I owned (since they broke where the straps connect into the sole).
Right out of the box they were very easy to adjust but one thing I noticed was that until I actually got these dirty, the straps kept tightening on me. Glad to say that problem is solved.
Overall, they are great for just about everything from backpacking to casual wear.

Straps are making me CRAZY

What the hell shoes!? Why, why do the straps keep moving!?

I'll have the straps just where I want them, which takes some doing, and then they slip, and slip, and slip some more, and then they strangle my big toe.

GRRRRRRRRR

I dig the footbed like a garden. The footbed is so damned comfortable. I've considered hacking off the straps and just duct taping the vibram sole to my feet every day - problem solved!

I've heard that the straps should be washed with Simple Green to cut down the slickness and ease of adjustment. I've also heard a person should get the sandals just right and then walk on a beach.

I'm not giving up yet. I got these Chacos %60 off, I want to spend years glorying in my good shopping and comfortable footbed. I'll try a few solutions but if the toe-strangling keeps up, I'm going to sell these...to someone I don't like.

Size notes: I'm always a size 6 in Merrells and in most other shoes. These Chacos are 5W and fit perfectly, well the footbed is perfect.

Chaco will fix the toe-tightening issue on ZX/2s and Z2s for free, but you will have to pay for shipping both ways. Haven't had it done myself, but I noticed this service on their website under Sandals/Repairs.

Bought as a gift but they look fantastic

I bought these as a gift, but they look fantastic and fit true to size. No complaints from teh receiver.

I love LOVE my ZX/2's but the toe strap seems to keep tightening up on me which makes them a bitch to get on and off sometimes. I find myself constantly messing with the toe strap to try to keep it loose.... advice??

If you know exactly where you want your strap and don't want it changing, take them to the beach or a good wet and sandy place. Go into the sand and water and they won't slide anymore (although you won't be able to move the straps again).

Thanks Bex and Emily - this is helpful info for a Chaco novice. These sandals are so badass, I can't get over it!

These are a must have.

These were my first pair of Chaco's. They are super comfortable & easy to adjust. Plus they're cute & who doesn't love that. AND I got them at a steal from the 20% discount and free shipping. You guys rock. I got a size 7 and they fit just right. I usually wear a 7.5

I typically wear a size 9.5 shoe. I know I will be able to adjust the sandals to fit my feet but to begin with should I round up to a size 10 or down to a 9?

Best Answer Responded on

Hey Victoria,

I have found in my experience that going down would be the better option. I have somewhat wide feet so a 10.0 worked well for me and that being the size I wear in EVERYTHING. If you normally wear a 9.5 I would try the 9.0. We do always recommend purchasing both sizes and for smart shopping we can offer something for you on return shipping.

Give us a call or hop on chat and we can set that up for you!

Comfortable and great support.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These take time to get used too, and you have to take a few minutes to adjust the straps. But once you get over that hurdle, they are great. My girlfriend wore these on our paddle trip,loved them! I usually wear a 6.5 in footwear, but got a 6 in these as no half sizes were available, but they fit really well once broken in.

I've been wearing Chacos forever. I bought my first pair when I realized my go-to Nike slides were hurting my feet and I had trouble walking if I had been sitting too long. Chacos literally fixed my feet. The SUPPORT in these shoes is unparalleled.

I normally wear a size 9 in running shoes (a little room for expansion) and I wear an 8 in Chacos. They take some getting used to, and adjusting the straps to your liking will take more than a minute, but once you do, you will never have to touch them again.

Also, not sure if this has been mentioned earlier but breaking them in can be tough, as I usually build calluses up on where the heel straps connect to the shoe. I wouldn't recommend a 10 hour day in them right off the bat. Once you break them in, you could wear them all day.

These aren't meant for hiking but they work just fine for day hikes. I have the Unaweep for heavier, longer hikes but these are still my favorite since they are a little lighter.

Trust me, and the reviews below... get a pair and you will never look back. Say goodbye to those flipflops forever! :)

Love the sandal but not the fit

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small

These sandals are awesome but within 5 min of wearing them the front straps were choking my feet. Too tight up front. I clarify that my feet are thin, not chunky. So, unfortunately I will just have to return them and look for something else to wear n my Camino hike during the month of May.

Responded on

Hey! Did you know that you can adjust the straps and loosen them as much as you want? Probably a little late since you've already returned them, but they adjust to any foot shape. :)

These sandals are awesome.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I had to spend sometime adjusting the straps to get them right, but once they were adjusted correctly, these sandals are awesome. I was able to walk 10 miles per day for multiple days in a row in these sandals.

What are the differences between the Yampa...

What are the differences between the Yampa and the Unaweep?

Best Answer Responded on

Hi Aurelie,
The Yampa is going to be your better all-around sandal. It has a lighterweight sole, and is generally better for casual/water wear. It reduces the weight by 20% over the Unaweep, and is generally just less chunky. The Unaweep sandals are going to offer a heavier and beefier sole, best for hiking/water use. They will offer better traction overall!

Responded on

Though the Unaweep may be better for hiking I just bought my Yampa's and use them to hike all the time, they are my climbing approach shoes as well.

All-time adventure shoe.

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Love my Chacos. At first, they were uncomfortable and tight. After I adjusted the straps and they started molding to my feet, I never wanted to take them off. They go great with shorts, jeans and t-shirts. Also great to wear in the water. If they start to smell, just throw them into the washer. I wore them all over Bermuda when touring this summer. Very comfortable.

If you decide to go with these wonderful shoes; welcome to the Chaco family :)

A must have.

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

These are my first pair of chaco's and I am not disappointed! Its early in the season and I've already worn these rugged sandals on several hikes in Moab and through La Platta County. The vibram soles, that really support the arch of your foot in combination with the adjustable straps that are versitille enough to hug my rather shallow and narrow foot make these sandals comfortable and supportive. Love. these. Sandals. Period.

great for all of summer

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

I just got these for my wife. She has been wanting a pair for a while and ended up on the double strap. She has been loving them so far and wearing them all of the time. The Yampa sole is much more low profile in comparison to the unaweep, it does have less tread but will still hold its ground in any activity. These are perfect for any river trip and work well for hiking, other than the occasional pebble in the sole. If you are looking for a great performance sandal that you can wear all summer, look no further! buy yourself a pair of chacos!

Fantastic! But runs narrow...

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

Got the ZX/2 Yampas in Light Beam - gorgeous, versatile color, my normal size 8 is good in length. But for the first time in my entire life they were too narrow (I usually have the opposite problem with shoes)! The sides of my food hung over the sides of the shoe and the vertical ankle straps dug into my ankle. I purchased the same shoe in the wide width but unfortunately BC does not carry the wide so I had to go elsewhere. Just be aware if your foot is anything but quite narrow, especially at the heel, you may prefer the wider width. In a sz 8, the heel cup in base of the reg width is 2"W & space between vertical ankle straps is 2.25". The 8W has 2.25"across the bottom of the heel cup and 2.5" between the ankle straps. Also about .25" more in width across foot at base of ball of foot (3.25" across between straps vs 3"). Depends on how tight you want them I guess. The tighter heel cup might lock your foot in better, but I wanted something for long distance walking and worried the sides would dig in and rub. Arch is very high and wide, great for preventing tired feet or for overpronators. I can walk indefinitely in these things, and they look great with any kind of clothing -- the double straps give them a bit more fashion zip than the regular z/2 yampas and they are lighter weight and a little less bulky than the uniweeps.

Versatile Sandal

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

Got a pair of these for my girlfriend to match mine that she liked. She loves hers and wears them everywhere, river trips, camping, hiking etc. She loves that the puple color has purple soles.

Only comes in whole sizes, if you are a half go down. So shes a 6.5 and wears a 6. These offer alot of arch support and will shorten your foot a little bit.

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.
