9 for style 5 for fit

Nice looking and decent comfort. I like tan/olive green color.Didn’t realize these shoes are lined with a 50/50 wool and polyester fabric. Makes them a bit warm for summer. Due to the liner, it is VERY hard to get your foot into the shoe, these should come with a shoe horn. That fact almost made me return them, but kept them instead. Would I buy again, the answer is no.

These are the moat comfortable pair of shoes I've ever worn. But after only having them for 2 1/2 weeks the seam on the heel came unsewn.

Great shoe, difficult break-in period

I love the shape of these shoes, I have flat, wide feet and these shoes are perfect. Only issue I had was the high arch on the sole rubbed the arch of my foot and gave me blisters, but strangely only on one side. The other shoe was fine and the arch didn't seem nearly as high or stiff, the chafing shoe seemed warped. After using a thick insole and breaking them in it solved the issue.

Great Chukkas!

I wore chukkas in high school (70s), always loved them, and have wanted another pair, but nothing really grabbed me. I immediately liked the looks of the Chaco chukkas, and when they were on sale, I pulled the trigger. I love these boots, like all Chaco shelled they’re extremely comfortable, and appear well constructed. Love the looks of these boots, too. I am extremely happy with these chukkas.

Walking in style

Great Chaco product. More than once I have had co-works comment on liking my new shoes while wearing them in public.

The Old Desert boot look

I like the way they look. Nostalgic, for me. The boots were too lg. I usually wear a 10 and I had to send them back, at my expense, for a size change. The 9 was a good fit for length. They are hard to get on and off. Granted, I've only had them for a minute... The insert is not removable! I have orthodics that I'm currently trying to fit into the shoe...Hoping for the best.

Great Shoe

Very comfortable show. Footbed like the sandals--nice arch support and room for toes to spread. I only wish they had half sizes. The 10 is too small as a couple of middle toes rub end while an 11 is just a little big. Went with the 11 and happy nonetheless.
