Re Wikstromwrote a review of Chaco Cordova Sandal - Women's on July 9, 2016
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
I was looking for more of a "grown up" flip flop and I found them right here. I love the leather straps and the grippy sole (vs your average flip flop), and I love the pattern/design of the straps.
I find other leather versions with a single strap and thin sole to be extremely uncomfortable, and not practical. So I was really excited to find these.
I was also worried about the footbed as I have stayed away from traditional chacos on account of having a lower arch and a medium/wide foot. I was pleasantly surprised to find the Cordova is quite comfortable for all day use. I like them so much I kept both the Black and the Caribou. I especially love the two-tone brown of the Caribou. Really nice touch.
The sole has proven to be great so far where other flip flops would send me slipping and sliding. I wore these out for a lunch time walk on some local trails and they passed that test easy.
They are also versatile for dressing up a bit, or just keeping it casual.
I wear a 9.5 so I ordered the 9. They are just a touch snug, but I expect the leather will stretch a bit more as I wear them in, and I think the 10 would have been way too big and loose.
