Cradling wider-than-average feet, the Chaco Men's Z/2 Classic Wide Sandal is a supportive choice for far-flung travel, everyday adventures, and rowdy river runs. The Z/2 is an excellent option if you've come to love Chaco Sandals, but desire a bit more room to alleviate cramped feet and toes. Pull-through adjustable straps ensure a custom fit while the ladder lock buckle keeps the straps firmly in place during active use.
Realizing that slippage is a major issue in the water, the Z/2 sports a textured polyurethane footbed for extra grip. The antimicrobial footbed treatment fends off funky odor build-up, especially during extended treks in humid weather. Plus, the LUVSEAT midsole supports your every step with its ergonomic shaping and plush feel. And to stand up to the rigors of hiking and paddling, the ChacoGrip rubber sole ensures tenacious traction across rugged trails and slippery shorelines.

I'm a Teva guy but thought I'd give these a try. Initial impressions: super bulky and heavy, too many straps, and just kinda ugly.
I'm easing into these and wearing them on select adventures. In the past month I went for a short day hike on some trails, full day at the beach, rode a bicycle, and walked around town with them. I'm a tough critic (some have called me a hater) and I've never bought into the whole Chaco cult. Buuuuuuuut... they have worked well so far. I'm not converted yet, but I'll keep on skeptically testing them and see if I can do a little hating when I update this review.
Not for me either
Tried these but they strangle my feet, went with the strapless toe version. Make sure to order a size down!
My new favorite shorts
These are super comfortable, stretchy and I like to gusseted crotch area. Utility pocket is cool too, I like that it has two zippers
Unfortunately not for me
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
I have seen Chaco’s around for a while and always dug the look of them. I liked the idea of having a piece of footwear that I wouldn’t mind walking thru rivers during a summer hike that was capable of providing enough support for all day comfort. So feeling optimistic I purchased a pair . A little background on my sandal style, I'm most comfortable in a classic pair of Rainbow sandals. After wearing the Chaco's for the day, my big toe was all cut up and I had blisters on my heel. I waited a couple more days and tried them again to see if it was possibly a break in process. Unfortunately, I had the same issues again. I gave up on the Chaco’s and am sticking to my Rainbows.If you have any questions hit me at 801-523-4075 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
