A must have for life.

Of all the shoes in my closet, my chacos are the most important. I take them everywhere, no matter the destination, length of stay, or climate. They are among the first things that I pack. They have seen many roads, whether they be urban, or my favorite, the dirt trail. These shoes can withstand anything, mud, sand, snow, water, and rock. You name it and these shoes can make it through. I have put my shoes through everything and still they survive. I am on my second pair now, I had to replace the first not because they wore out but rather because they were stolen from me while I was in a foreign country. It seems these shoes cross all kinds of barriers, there appeal is still just as strong in a country such as India.
I will own a pair of these shoes until the day I die and they will still be the best shoes in my closet.

Everyone at the local crag has these shoes, and eventually I broke and joined the club. They sized about half a size bigger than my street shoes to fit well. At first I thought I wouldn't like the toe strap, but so far has worked pretty well. They took some adjusting to get the strap to fit right, and to build up callouses around the straps and where the heel of the shoe rubs against the foot. A month in, they're super comfy and require little adjustment. One issue, there's a bit of extra strap left past the buckle that can drag on the ground. I cut the webbing shorter, and then folded it over itself. With a little sewing, was good as new.
Overall, great shoes. Plus, a great tan line to boot!

Even better than I had expected...

A couple of close friends have Chacos and were suggesting I get a pair. Due to my love for the outdoors and constantly being on the go, they seemed like worth a shot. Boy is that an understatement! They're awesome. I'd head to class in them, then go for a hike and take a quick swim to cool off. They were not as bad breaking in as many people have complained about. I am disappointed I hadn't ordered mine earlier in the summer so I could have enjoyed them all season long. I would strongly suggest these to anyone!!! (I really prefer the ones with the toe strap too - they offer a little more support and if you don't want that you can always pull it and keep it under your foot.)

I've had a pair of Unaweeps for about 5 years now, and they still are holding up GREAT! I've used them on countless numbers of river trips, hikes, and fishing excursions. They protect your feet well from the ground, but they definitely do take some breaking in each season. I finally had to replace these because I got a size too big- I thought my feet were still growing, so I purchased an 8 but they never did grow larger than a 7.5. Some folks do prefer to hop up if you're in between sizes so your toes are a little more protected. I personally prefer to size down, because I hate having the extra weight on my forefoot. Overall- great shoe.

Kayla Weiser at on 07/24/2013

These shoes are, without a doubt, my favorite thing I've ever purchased. My loyal pair and I have been together for three years now, and we've hiked terrains ranging from mighty mountains to barren deserts (and everything in between). I usually sport a size 7.0-7.5, but I got an 8.0 in these and they fit impeccably.
Personally, I dig the toe loop. I grew up with an older pair that was sans-toe loop, and I much prefer the extra strap - it really holds my foot onto the footbed.
Note: Don't take these bad boys out on a long expedition until you've broken them in, they take some time to get familiar with.
CONCLUSION: Seriously, buy these shoes! They even look chic with socks.

Great Sandals

These are comfortable sandals, with lots of support. I like the way the straps can slide to fit any foot volume. It may take several tries to find the right combination, though. This is the first shoe I have worn with a toe strap. My right foot is fine with it, but my left foot has a bunion (hopefully that's not TMI!), which causes my toes to slant to the left. So the left foot is not as comfortable as the other. I wonder if I, and others like me, might be more comfortable in the Z/1 (no toe strap).
Michelle loves summer... at Rock/Creek Outfitters on 09/09/2011

When I first got mine, they hurt my feet because I have no arch in my feet and these have arch. Once my feet got used to them and they got worn down, they are the best. I wear them all the time, in and out of the water. They are easy to get on and off and they worked great for me while I was working at a summer camp. They withstood lots of hiking, swimming, and rough terrain, and the soles are still in almost perfect condition. These are worth the money!

They're grrrreeeeaaaattttt!

Great sandals. I wear these to ride my bike around downtown, hike to the crag, play in the water, and everything in between. While they are not super-sleek or stylish, they are a fantastic sandal. They are super supportive, you can wear them all day (and be on your feet) and your feet will feel great. The toe strap can take some getting used to, but I would just recommend keeping it a little loose. Two thumbs up!

This is my first pair of Chacos and so far I'm very happy with these sandals. Adjusting the straps took some practice but once I got them right, they fit great. I wear orthotics so the arch support in these sandals is just what I need. I also realized I needed a wide after trying on the first pair I ordered. As always, Zappos customer service was fantastic and the exchange process was seamless.

great sandals

This is my first Chaco WIDE sandal and I am very pleased - much better than the regular, although my feet are not wide. They will hike and play all summer with me. The pretty blue color just adds fun to a very serviceable sandal. The only complaint about Chaco Sandals is the nasty foot smell after wearing them all day. I have adapted because they are great in every other way.

Neutral Reviews:

My wife wore these for the first time on an 8 mile hike in Hawaii and got blisters on both feet. They probably need to be broken in a bit before going on long treks. The adjustable straps are nice but a bit difficult to pull to fit. Nice sturdy sole but not as awesome as everyone was saying, at least not yet.
