I bought these to travel around Vietnam for two weeks. It was very, very hot and humid. Some downpours and they left you wet and with some serious puddles to deal with. Knowing that was likely what I was in for before I left, I researched sport sandals and decided on these rather than my usual Tevas. Part of that decision is because I had to buy online as there are no stores near me that sell Chaco or a decent selection of Teva. Meaning, I couldn't try shoes on for comfort and fit before purchasing them. I didn't want to deal with return either. Because these sandals are so adjustable to your foot, I thought I would try them (and maybe not have to do a return). I was right!
I wore these at home for a bit to break them in. They really don't need breaking in.
I really like that all the straps are adjustable. But, if you get it wrong, it could lead to blistering. I got a blister early on during my trip on one spot on top of my left foot. I think the strap was too tight (even though I was comfortable) and certainly my foot swelled in that heat. It was quite a bit of trial and error after that to get the straps to a more proper fit on that foot. But, once I did, there were no further issues.
Anyway, these were great. They gave me confidence walking around. Dried more than fast enough after getting soaked. I recommend them to anyone. I also like the purple for a color choice. Quite subtle and went with all clothing colors. These shoes are also versatile as to what you can wear them with...which is pretty much anything except a cocktail dress.
I am blister prone...I have never found a pair a boots or sneakers that didn't cause blisters, even with all the duct tape and moleskin in the world. When it came time to pack for a recent backpacking trip, I was a little worried about footwear since there was going to be a good amount of hiking involved. Since we were going somewhere warm (Havasupai) I decided to bring my Chacos. For me, they're the ultimate shoe. I can wear them around town, hiking and in the water. They're easy to rinse off (Havasupai is super sandy) and easy to get on and off. 32 miles later, I still had happy, blister free feet! You may not want to do the same if you have weak ankles or something, but I have to say...I am thrilled. My only complaint about these shoes is that when you're walking in a river with lots of little rocks on the bottom, you will get some in between your foot and the shoe and that can be a pain.
My boyfriend, on the other hand, has very flat feet and the way his feet sit in Chacos causes horrendous blisters. I have pretty high arches, and they fit me perfectly, so I'd definitely try them out for a while before committing to days of hiking in them.
I have never owned Chacos before but they came highly recommended, so I decided to buy a pair when they were on sale 20% off.
They arrived quickly, but I needed a little help from an experienced Chaco user to get them to fit onto my feet initially. Miraculously he was able to manipulate & pull the straps so that somehow the shoes that would barely fit onto my feet now fit like a glove.
They take some time to "wear in" and for your feet to get used to them... don't go on a 3 mile hike in the rain until your feet have been conditioned to wear Chacos (I learned that the hard way).
Overall, they look great, fit great, and I know will last me a very long time and get a lot of use!
i *hated* my 1st pair of chacos-- and it was b/c of the damn big toe loop. could never get it so that it wouldn't tighten up. i was hesitant to get this pair, but i'm so glad i did now!!! it made a big difference for me that my toes are free. the sandal holds up well-- i've gone on multiple hikes now w/ them & they've held up thru dust, rock & water. i am normally a size 6.5 in a dress shoe, but heard that i'd need to size down. a 6 fit perfect.
I've wanted a pair of Chacos for years and finally broke down. No break-in time! Great color! (Field Green) Love the double straps! Can be thrown into the washer! They are definitely the sandals of the summer, and will be for years. I will choose them over all the others for the good arch support and versatility. They can be worn in almost all situations. I have a pair of Tevas very similar to this and they are great, too, just getting very worn. The Tevas don't have quite the arch support of these Chacos.
my last sandals..lizards I had for ten years and they did everything from gardening to approach shoes. I was concerned I wouldn't find something as compatible when they finally went. Not so! These are comfy, have been through a few streams and up to one crag already, I run them under the hose and head downtown.
It can be a bit awkward getting your foot in not being able to disconnect the one strap, especially with a full climbing pack on but even that is growing on me...two thumbs up
Best sandals I've ever had. They are rugged enough for day hikes and cute enough to wear with a casual dress. It took me quite a while to get the straps adjusted and to get used to the footbed but once I had it right the sandals were awesome and I can wear them all day. I haven't worn my Keens once since getting these. The ZX/1 is cuter and more comfortable. I did order a half size down from my regular size and I'm happy with that.
When I ordered my Chacos I received them within good time. At first when I put them on I was not crazy about them but waited until another day when I might have a better opinion. I really have enjoyed them. The only thing I would like for these Chacos to have is the toe wrap. I love the color and comfort. Overall good buy. They take some breaking in time. Had sores for about a week but theyre broken in and comfy now.
