Z/2 Classic Sandal
Drawing steadfast loyalty with its rugged dependability, the Chaco Men's Z/2 Classic Sandal is a perennial favorite of seasoned travelers, hardcore hikers, and river runners. Its refreshingly simple design uses only eight components for timeless style and functionality in demanding conditions. Pull-through adjustable webbing straps provide a fine-tuned fit while the ladder lock buckle keeps the straps from loosening up during active wear.
Ideal for stream crossings and trips to the beach, the Z/2's textured footbed prevents your foot from sliding around once it's wet. The antimicrobial footbed treatment prevents funky odors from taking hold, especially after extended treks in humid weather. Plus, the LUVSEAT midsole cushions your every step with its plush feel and ergonomic shaping. And because it's home on rough trails and slippery shores, the ChacoGrip rubber sole adds sure-footed stability to land and sea adventures.
- Outdoor-ready sandal that's a classic for a reason

- Injection-molded ladder lock buckle won't get stuck
- Textured footbed with antimicrobial treatment adds cushioning

Great sandal for hiking
Bought for son's birthday. This is his first pair of chacos and it took him a little while to get them set up with the straps comfortably but after a few weeks have walked in them several miles and found them to be quite comfortable.

Summer Shoe with Grip
If it's summer, I'm wearing my Chacos. They have enough grip to even climb and scramble in when needed, and will grip a wet paddleboard or boat on the water. Super comfy and versatile! The toe strap is essential for me when hiking to have the sandals not flopping around everywhere.

To begin, I've never been a big sandal guy so I was very hesitant to drop the money on a pair of Chacos. I found them here at Backcountry on sale and decided to pull the trigger on the leant java Z/2 Classics. I was shocked at how much I love wearing these! They even look great on me. I bought them in the Fall and I can't wait for Spring and Summer to roll around so I can wear them even more!

Do you have wide feet?
I made the mistake of ordering these without realizing there is a wide option. If you have a normal width foot, here is a great option for your standard Chaco. These also made me realize I am not a fan of the toe strap, and will be getting the ones without the toe strap going forward.

I even got the cool tan!
Chacos are the summer staple at our house. My husband wears them pretty constantly in warm weather. They hike great and stay on if you wind up swimming a rapid. It does take a bit of an adjustment period to get the straps super comfy, so strap them tight and walk in them for a couple of days before they are perfect.

Great once adjusted correctly
Initial thoughts from a weekend on the white rim was that these are very comfortable. They were great to throw on and walk around. I wasnt sure how to adjust the straps at first and had some rubbing issues. Once they were adjusted, they are GREAT for wading and walking around.

Tweeners size down.
I've had these for about a month or so, and I like them so far. The toe loop is a cool addition, gives you the feel of a flip flop with the stability of a sandal, the price difference isn't much so if you want it I would go for it, but your life won't necessarily be drastically different without it. I'm stuck between sizes and chose to go up, and if I did it again I would probably size down. The added slack makes it less of a lockdown fit and it's no fun having the strap flap around. Great around town, for easy to moderate hiking, and around the campsite.

Amazed after first use
This was my first pair of Chaco's and I love them. Right out of the box they were great and very comfortable and I was surprised at how beefy the sole was for a sandal. The toe strap is awesome for hikes and keeps your foot in place. I used these on a trip to Costa Rica and they were perfect for it and walking around exploring the cities and also just going on the beach or anything like that. Check these out if you are looking for a great new sandal!

Perfect for River Rafting / Wet-Wading.
Purchased these for a whitewater rafting trip in West Virginia. Gearhead steered me toward the toe-strap for stability and the advice was spot on. While wearing them, swam in the river, waded in the river and climbed rocks and jumped into the river. Now back home they are the perfect for the canoe trips while fishing on the river.

Classic river sandal
This is the classic sandal for warm river rafting. Toe loop is a must in sandals for uneven terrain and swimming in the river.

Best Sandals Around
These things rock! I've had mine for 8 years and they're still kickin. I wear them almost every day during the summer. The tan lines are pretty sweet too :)

Love My Chacos
Fifth star is missing due to the toe. I finally got fed up of the toe tightening and super glued them. Then when I felt like they were to loose I just laid down the toe. Other than that I love these. I run, hike, breath in these. Even if it's cold they're my go to shoes, I mean sandals :)

Not getting the hype
Honestly, I just can't on board with the hype of Chaco sandals. I have tried them on multiple times and tried to convince myself to like them, but I just can't. They are bulky, heavy, and just feel awkward. I will admit that their strap system is pretty rad, but that all falls irrelevant to me with the feel. I guess that a lot of the durability and sturdiness comes from the density of the sole, but I just can't justify wearing a sandal that is twice as heavy as my shoes. Last note, I wear an 8.5 and the 8 fit me best.

Words have been eaten
After years of being on the fence, I finally purchased a pair of chacos. I was gearing up for a trip to Costa Rica, and needed some new sandals. For that trip , specifically, they were ideal and they're great for a lot of other scenarios, too. My only regret , would be not getting a pair sooner .

Love these Sandals!
I'm still not a fan of the toe loop, but I wanted to give them a try. Don't go for toe loops if you are comfortable with thong flip flops. They don't feel similar at all! The soles are great for just about anything out there.

Well Made Sandals!
Well made sandals. Purchased as a gift for my friend. Didn't really use them but I can tell they are of high quality!
July 12, 2017
I ordered these in a size 8 (I'm almost always a size 8 or 8.5 in shoes) and they we a good 1.5cm too long. Otherwise, really liked the shoes! I'll be returning the 8 and trying a 7.

Tried and True
These Chaco's are my go to sandal for any kind of adventure during the summer. I love the adjustable straps for a perfect fit. I'd recommend these to anyone looking for an upgraded Teva that is going to last a lot longer!

Sole has a great arch and provides support all day long. They are extremely comfortable and form fitting. Highly recommended.

Initial thoughts from a weekend in Moab is they are very comfortable and built for walking around the desert. Throwing them on after a long day of hiking or biking and wearing them around the campsite was great. I am still a little concerned about blisters and longer hikes as i do feel some rubbing, but I assume once they are broken in all will be good.
