I love Chaco's. I found the best fit is to do the next size up and to be wide. The regular is a good fit only if you have narrow feet. Wide is good for regular width feet to actual wide feet. So, for me I am a size 7- 7.5 in regular shoes, I order Chacos size 8 W. Ive broken in a couple pairs, so I recommend for a fast break in period, use them in water a lot, and at first walk around in them as flip flops ( w/o the back strapped up), this allows them to get broken in the foot area. Once that is broken in the heel area should break in just fine. Yes, it's an art to breaking in a pair of usually expensive Chaco's, but it is worth it (to me) to have a lifetime sandal, that is good for hobbies and town wear. Chacos last me about 6 years of regular summer wear, then the sole kind of starts flopping off. You can get your sandals repaired through Chaco and probably get another 6 years out of them, but I usually see it as an excuse to get a new pair :} Also... I just ordered a customized pair off the chaco website (pick all your own designs, sole and color, stitch color etc) for 130 dollars. Compared to retail stores you have limited selection and they cost about 116 dollars. I say create your own pair!!
After trying both the Keen Newport H2 and the Teva Tirra sandals, I have chosen these to be my sandals for backpacking around the world. I have extremely narrow feet, so the fact that you can adjust all the straps is AMAZING.
I wasn't crazy about chacos color options, but I ordered the Foxy Green and I LOVE it! I love that these are more sandal like than both Keens and Tevas and that there arent laces or velcro all over the shoe like Tevas and Keens.
You definitely have to break these shoes in, the straps rubbed in a couple places after I walked in them a lot, but they dont anymore. I also got a small blister on the bottom of my foot from the arch. I'm so used to wearing flat shoes with no arch support that after walking around in these shoes for two days straight the arch was giving me some foot pain and rubbing in a little blister. Again, this is something that has gone away now that I have broken them in and adjusted to them.
Overall they are the BEST possible option in both fit and function. I really don't think there is anything better out there. Chaco has officially won me over :)
Awesome shoes! They are a little narrow. I do not have a wide foot, pretty average (I actually have a slightly wide toe box and a narrow heel, but always, except on Chacos, wear a medium width.) I do wear a half size, though (size 6.5. women's.) I ended up having to try the shoes on in the store to figure out what size I wear. Here's the scoop:
The Uniweep apparently run narrow. In the Uniweep, I go down a half size, but wear a wide (women's size 6 wide.) The Yampa (same top as the Uniweep, but the sole doesn't have the same depth of tread and it's a slightly lighter...and wider...shoe) is ever so slightly wider than the Uniweep; I am able to wear a medium width, but go UP to the next size, size 7. (There was not a 6 wide available to try on in the Yampa, so I don't know how that would have worked.)
I bought these as a birthday gift to myself. I live in Florida and I go to the theme parks a lot. Flip flops and sandals just weren't cutting and sneakers get too hot in the summer. My cousin had a pair and she swore by them. So I got a pair and I am so happy I did. I wear them everywhere. I also have flat feet and bunions and they don't bother at all. It took some getting used to and you definitely need to break them in. But once you do you won't regret your decision. I am 27 and I have feet and lower back pain issues since I was a teenager. I have never found a pair of sandals that were so perfect for my feet. The biggest plus is they have great traction, so no slipping or falling on wet surfaces.
I wanted these to fit so badly, but they just aren't going to work for me. My normal size is a 6.5, so I first ordered the 6 and it was a bit too short, and with 7's the ankle strap is too loose and there's so much excess strap at the end that it hits the ground. I could probably deal with the long strap, but I know but the loose fit at the ankle would turn into blisters once I got on a trail. Technically I could get it adjusted so the back was tighter, but at that point the end strap was way, way too long and the whole fit was too tight and uncomfortable. Bummer.
The straps, even when adjusted, didn't fit and my feet were sliding around in them - they were just too long. I heard that they will fix this problem for free if you send them in, but the other problem I had was that both of my feet wouldn't stay centered so I was walking on the lumps on the side and it was very uncomfortable. I think they are great for people with wide feet, but not for people with very narrow feet!
I love these shoes. However, the pictures are very deceiving. They have the lighting very wrong in the pictures. The design is way more dull. Also, the soles are BLACK not even remotely gray. Customer service will argue with you on what color they are. However, you can all judge for yourselves.
