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.

Sandal Features:
The mighty Yampa is the last undammed river in the Colorado drainage system, and Chaco funneled this ferocious outdoor spirit into the Z/1 Yampa Sandal. Made with a low-profile design and heavy duty Vibram outsoles, the Z/1 is ready for adventure.

Chaco Z/1 Yampa Reviews:


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!

Bottom line: love my Chaco's! My kids have worn them for years because they're 'cool'. I decided to try a pair in anticipation of an upcoming beach & boat vacation. Pro's: fit great and for me having a 'wide' option is a must; easy to adjust and they can be worn tight, loose, or in between. The best part for me is my feet don't sweat in the Chaco's. I'm a big Keen's fan and appreciate the protection the covered toes provide, but they do get hot and eventually stinky. Took three pairs of shoes on an eight day vacation (including my Keens) & wore the Chaco's almost exclusively. Con's: A bit pricey, but I think they are well built and will last for years. Highly recommend for an everyday casual sport sandal.

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 is good!!)

Awesome sandal that can do it all!

Two days after I got these Chacos I took a 7 day vacation to Disney World, and I wore these every step I took all week long, and that was a ton of walking. They were up to the challenge though, and worked perfectly all week long. They were perfect for wearing through the heat, the wet, and everything in between. I love them and wear them practically every day! One recommendation though is to order a size down from your normal shoe size for an appropriate fit.

Got these shoes after taking a hike that involved crossing water and both bare feet and wet shoes seemed like bad options. Since then I've gone on two 10+ mile hikes and they have worked well. I did get one blister from a strap before I got them broken in, but it was my fault for improperly tightening them. Overall, would buy again.

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

Amazing sandal. So comfortable, and it has amazing arch support. I can't wait to get home after work, or after a run, so I can put them on. My feet crave them! I wish the site was up before I bought these so I could have designed my own.

If you have bunions and plantar fascia, the Chaco Z1 sandal is for you. None of the other Chaco sandals have the Z1 arch support, so don't try any other if your plantar fascia bothers you.

Simply amazing sandals: I own more Chacos than anyone should and the Yampa sole is the most comfortable I've worn. And Chacos look hot!
