Chaco sandals aren't just a product, they're a state of mind. A piece of footwear so legendary, their wearers have their own demonym - "Chaconians." The Z1 is the original Chaco, invented by rafting guides in search of a better sandal. The Z1's LUVSEAT platform and sock-friendly open-toe design provide a level of comfort and performance seldom found elsewhere; a single buckle and Custom Adjust’em Fit adjustable straps hold feet securely in every condition. "Yampa" refers to the Vibram rubber outsole; Yampa is the lighter-weight sole, while Unaweep is heavier.
The Chaco Z/1 Yampa Sandal for Men in Imminent is not just for watersports, the Z/1 provides excellent traction for where ever your feet may wander. Featuring vital alignment with the Chaco LUVSEAT platform, and quick-drying polyester webbing to hold your foot static.

I am a recent convert to hiking in sandals. These are the real deal. The soles grip any and all terrain and nothing is lighter or more comfortable. Ankles are somehow solidly supported. No idea how, but, I promise you if my ankles suffered I would be screaming it from the roof tops. These things keep you rock solid. Oh, and your tootsies DO NOT get banged up in rocky terrain or when you get lead footed and started banging into roots, etc.. The only time I had any issue at all was when walking through boot sucking mud. If there are stones or debris in the mud it can get trapped under the arch requiring you to clean it out with your hand or by hitting the sandal with some water. Everything else that might get trapped clears itself with a little shake of the foot. The only advice I would give is to carry a small tube of hand lotion with you for awhile because your feet will start to crack after a few days due to exposure. A little hand lotion in the morning, at lunch and at night cures this. If you are only out for the day lotion is not necessary. Also, if you are between sizes order down. Be aware that some others on the trail will feel compelled to comment on your choice of footwear. Be gentle with them. After all, ignorance is bliss.
I got a pair of these on SAC for $40 because my roommate wouldn't stop raving about his pair of Chacos. Well, he wasn't a raving lunatic, he was dead on. These are without a doubt the most comfortable footwear on the planet. It took about a week for my feet to get used to the straps, but after that, I don't think I wore anything else unless I had to. Unfortunately I lost one of my sandals today when it got sucked off my foot in knee deep muck in a lagoon. I spent about a half hour searching for it but alas I couldn't find it. So after drying my tears, I ordered another pair as soon as I got home. The only complaint I have is that they can get pretty stinky if you don't clean them every week or so. But they are SO comfy. They have excellent grip, they provide good arch support and they're SO DAMN COMFORTABLE!
I used my Z/1 Yampas for a 30 mi backpacking weekend on the AT. My med high arches flatten out quickly (about 7K mi hiking) so I needed the Yampas high arch. They worked great keeping my weight evenly distributed over my foot. My shoe size is a 12 to 13...the Z/1 size 12 was about 1/4 inch longer on my foot than my old pair of size 12 Chacos, but stacked side by side, are the same length....go figure?? They fit and wear so good that I also ordered another pair with the big toe loop!! They also look good for dress wear (wore them to watch Clemson beat Alburn today...life is good!!)
Being a birkenstock man most of my life I decided I needed something I could actually hike in, not just go to concerts in. Paired with some smartwool socks I even hike during January with these. If you got a wide foot like me these are perfect... I'll wear em to my grave
