Lowdown Sandal

The Lowdown is a slimmed down Chaco that can still hold its own on the trail. The midsole might be thinner, but it still gives better rebound and less compression for a trail-ready performance. Chaco updated the straps with anti-odor technology for odor control, and it has similar adjustments to the original Chaco for a snug fit. ChacoGrip gives the same technical traction and stable platform you'd expect from Chaco.


  • The ever-popular Chaco gets a minimalist update
  • Thinner midsole has better rebound for a trail-worthy performance
  • Odor control straps adjust on-the-go for a quick fit
  • ChacoGrip rubber sole gives the same grip that Chaco is known for

I really like them.

You would think that chocos basic flat straps would be the ideal material to use. The straps may not work for smaller feet. Especially the first strap above the toes. I had some discomfort on the right side of my right foot in particular. When my pinky toe leans in, the strap rests rubs down eventually creating a sore spot there. It goes away somewhat, but is completely intolerable. I wore them around the house to see how I am going to deal with the pain before taking them out. The good news is that they do stay on very well. The back is adjustable, which can be a problem due to it loosening after a while. The sole is comfortable for sure. I didn't send them back but I cant wear them as much as I'd like to. I can recommend them for bigger feet and it most definitely is worth a try. Your experience could be night and day with mine. God bless! You

Please improve the buckle for the strap

Love the sandals but the strap adjustment bracket keeps sticking and is starting to tear the strap.

I was hoping for different

Not quite what I was hoping for, but still did the job. The straps are had the get the right fit and when I did, the loose end was inches too long and dragged along the ground. Not ideal. That and the tread was not as grippy as I would have thought, rather slippery TBH. But they were on sale and now I understand why. It’s hard to know all of this when trying them on. It’s only when they get wet and you’re trying to get to and from the beach that you realize what’s up

Love them

I read a lot of reviews on these and had a lot of worries about them based on the reviews concerning the rear strap. However I work at a department store that sells chacos and they had these sandals in a color that isn't available online and I get a good discount so I decided to get them just to see. I absolutely love them. Great arch support and they're so comfortable. I have no problems AT ALL with any of the straps. The heel strap stays put and secure. Maybe they improved the design? Idk. But I absolutely love them so I can't not recommend them!

High arch

Arch too high. You are ignoring your customers from the late 90s to early 2000s when arches were normal height

I love them, but Chaco engineers: fix the buckle!

From reading reviews on these, I know they aren't for everybody, but I love them so much I bought another pair after I ran the first ones into the ground. They're lightweight, super comfy and I've hiked and walked a thousand miles in them. Yeah, you do have walk in a particular, toes-raised way that Birkenstocks also require, but if you're used to that, these are even better. I only use the backstrap in rigorous conditions -- otherwise I just walk on the strap under my heel, which I don't even notice. The backstrap buckle does require frequent readjustment, but maybe Chaco can fix / figure that out. I hope they don't get discontinued.
