    Details

    It's no secret that Chaco's developed a loyal, almost cult-like following among hardcore outdoor enthusiasts and casual wearers seeking a sturdy, dependable sandal. Building off this legacy, the Chaco Men's Z/1 Classic Sandal delivers the timeless aesthetic and rugged durability that's legendary among hikers, river paddlers, and everyday wearers. Pull-through adjustable webbing straps provide a fine-tuned fit. The dependable ladder lock buckle cinches tightly to prevent the straps from slipping during active use.

    The textured polyurethane footbed prevents your feet from sliding around, especially on humid summer days where perspiration is inevitable. Speaking of perspiration, the footbed's antimicrobial treatment keeps funky odors at bay when you're trekking across tropical jungles, alpine streams, and searing deserts alike. Plus, the LUVSEAT midsole cradles your every step with its ergonomic design and plush polyurethane material. And allowing it to excel over rugged terrain and slippery shorelines, the ChacoGrip rubber sole features 3.5mm lugs that grip tenaciously across trails and coastal surfaces.

    • Textured footbed with antimicrobial treatment
    • LUVSEAT midsole (polyurethane)

    The New Sole Isn't For My Soul

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 12
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 195lbs

    I used to always go with the Z/2 (toe strap) and finally decided to go with one without. This was a great decision because I can wear them with a sock when it gets a little colder. I used to love my Chaco’s sole but since changing from Vibram to ChacoGrip I noticed a decrease in quality. The footbed is still great and comfy but I would not use these for most outdoor adventures anymore, I cannot rely on their grip. Still a great sandal and the Z tan is legendary but for me they act as a fashion piece. I know that if you make your Chacos custom on their website you have the option to change your sole to one with Vibram so it is not gone forever.

    PS Clean your Chacos regularly with a brush of some kind, they can hold funk pretty easily. You can also floss the straps.

    First Time Chaco Buyer

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

    I finally broke down and decided I needed a pair of Chacos. I have been loving them. I don't think flipflops because of the strap between my toe and the insecurity on your foot. But these don't have the strap and they are pretty solid on the foot. I have done some boulder hopping with these and felt really secure and relaxed in these things. They also have great grip on rocks and dirt.

    Preferred over strap

      Awesome sandal, I've been wearing for a week straight and for me there was little to no break in period. I have a wider foot and ordered this sandal (wide not necessary) and I have a 2E width. Also, size down! These run large for sure. Most of the river guides had this style of sandal as well, great for water.

      Runs Large

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: 8
      • Height: 5'7"
      • Weight: 155lbs

      I am always a size 8-8.5 in shoes so I figured the 8's would fit appropriately. Well, the size 8 was a good 1.5 cm too long. Given Chaco's are only full sizes I would definitely order down a size. Otherwise, loved the look and feel of the shoes!

      Proof I Go Outside

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium
      • Height: 5'10"
      • Weight: 165lbs

      Chaco's have become a staple for anyone wanting to shout to the world "I go outside!" There is a reason these sandals have become so popular though. They fit great, even for people with wide feet. They are easily adjustable, great for short hikes and simple outdoor activities, and maybe most importantly, they are durable.

      Chaco Nation

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 10
      • Height: 5'11"
      • Weight: 210lbs

      These sandals are the classic Chaco build that I've used ever since I began wearing the brand. It does seem that with each iteration, the overall quality drops a bit. The outsole is no longer Vibram, and the new rubber has been wearing down faster than it used to. The straps are also difficult to adjust after wearing for a while. They still function well, offer good support and are very comfy, but just not quite what they used to be...

      Best summer sandals

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: 10
      • Height: 5'11"
      • Weight: 150lbs

      I bought these shoes to wear for the summer and so far they are great. I wear them casually and maybe on a few short hikes, but nothing too big. They look good and feel good too! I got these because it didn't have the big toe strap and I haven't regretted it. They don't flop around like flip flops and they feel very secure. They do run a but big. I normally wear a size 10 but probably should've gotten a 9.5 or 9. That's the only downside. Other than that they are amazing sandals!

      If you're not a fan of the toe straps...

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 11.0

      Great all around footwear, these are the basic "get er done" Chaco. Very pleased with the fit and adjustability of the straps and sizing is spot on.

      Amazing

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: 8
      • Height: 5'10"
      • Weight: 150lbs

      There is a reason these sandals are the industry leader. They are amazing for multiple activities. I try to have them with me at all times if I am in the outdoors during warm months.

      I wear a 8.5/9 and bought a size 8 due to other reviews I read, they fit perfectly so I would have to say overall they fit large.

      Great Sandals

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 11
      • Height: 5'3"
      • Weight: 120lbs

      I bought these for my boyfriend and he loves them. He has another pair that he wears everywhere in the summer so I bought him a second pair in a different color to match more of his outfits.

      Best sandals!

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
      • Fit: True to size
      • Height: 5'4"
      • Weight: 130lbs

      Gift recipient is very stoked! Here are his thoughts:

      This product will be perfect for summer time activities and travel. My feet are wider and just like any other shoe my foot does go a bit past the sides. It will take some breaking in of the shoes. The arch support is great but will take some getting used to. You do not break Chacos into your foot, you break your feet into Chacos. I like how the straps adjust to foot size. Very durable sole. Perfect for fishing, hiking, and travelling.

      My Chacos Rocko

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: 10
      • Height: 5'11"
      • Weight: 165lbs

      Chacos are the best sandal ever. I have worn mine everywhere and have worn them doing every thing from hiking to hanging out in hot springs to roaming the streets.

      After wearing them almost everyday it was hard to put shoes and socks back on. I never wanted to wear anything else. They are extremely comfortable and versatile.

      If you are you looking at deciding between the Z/1 and Z/2, I would suggest the Z/1. I have found that the toe loop rubs on your big toe and it tightens down while you are walking. My wife had the same problem, but some people like the added security. So far I haven't had a problem with security with my Z/1s.

      I wear a size 10.5 in US sizing shoes. I have had both 11 and 10 Chacos and I choose my size 10s over 11s every time. So if you have a half size I would recommend going to the lower size.

      APMA also approves Chacos. So basically, the foot doctors recommend these bad boys.

      classic durability

      Year after year these sandals are a pair you can count on. This is my third pair and they have never disappointed , the sizing is always perfect and they can stand up to a lot of abuse.
