About Chaco

Chaco Fit. Function. Transparency. Irreverence. Since 1989, these are the concepts that Chaco® adults and childrens sandals and shoes hold above all others. From new style introductions to changes in tread pattern or glue formula, everything passes a litmus test to determine whether it's truly an improvement. In addition, most Chaco® sandals and shoes can be re-soled, a process that saves resources and dollars. In order to maintain the high level of quality, Chaco® addresses the dynamics of the stride with what they call ADDSTRIDE, a combination of footbed contour for pure alignment to the body and to the adventure, function specific materials and outsole geometries designed to enhance the walking motion. Chaco sandals and shoes are designed to cross the boundaries between performance and casual, comfort and aesthetics. Versatile shoes for active adults and children.

From glue bonds to stitch lines to polyurethane formulations (CHAPU™), Chaco® sandals and shoes are second to none in quality. With the ADDSTRIDE footbed technology added into their products, each shoe or sandal ensures a supported, comfortable stride in any activity and as a result, has been awarded the Seal of Acceptance by the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA).

Chaco® children's shoes are made with the same innovative technology and ADDSTRIDE footbed that the adults shoes are. Chaco® really knows what it means to make quality children's shoes that are also fashionable and functional. Each pair is made to withstand hours of play because the ADDSTRIDE footbed delivers lasting arch support and alignment for a long and lovely ride.

Not only does Chaco® focus on the quality of their products, but also quality of life. By creating a product that outlasts the competition, and is able to repaired or resoled, Chaco® makes strides to create a product that can last as long as possible without the need to throw it in a landfill. When you put on a pair of Chaco's it should mean something—your best day, a feeling of freedom, a life of adventure. Wearing Chacos is the first step to the day’s lovely ride.

Really comfortable sandal. My only complaint is that I purchased a size 8, which is my normal size but they fit more like a 7-7.5. I'm exchanging for a 9 hoping for a better fit.

I ordered these for my daughter. She has average width feet but the medium was way too narrow. I have exchanged for wide. Otherwise great sandals and incredible service, as usual, from Zappos.

These are fantasti! I had tried the classic Chaco and they weren't comfortable. The arch was too high and they were very heavy. These are perfect. The arch is just right and they are much lighter weight. There is no break in period.

This is a COMFORTABLE shoe. I wore it around the house for a couple of hours but I do not like the way the strap hangs off the shoe when you tighten it. This could be a really cute shoe to wear with a sports sundress, on the beach or after the gym but the strap makes it look slouchy. They should have make it where you could snap it to the back so it doesn't hang down.

These sandals fit well and look very cute on. They felt fine walking short distances, but after an all day sight-seeing trip, I ended up with blisters on the backs of both heels. I would not recommend these shoes if you're going to be walking very far.

These are the best sandal for any man with narrow feet. My husband's are extremely narrow and other flip-flops are always too wide. He wore the first pair completely out and these are replacements.

Loved them! Extremely comfortable. I wear a 7.5 and the 7 was perfect. Because my feet are also narrow, they're easy to adjust to fit.

My family travels every summer to different cities. We try to walk as much as possible-somedays as much as 12 miles. I will get bruises on the balls of my feet if the shoes do not have enough cushioning but tennis shoes and socks can be hot. After reading the reviews I decided to try chacos. I did take the advice of giving myself time to get used to them and adjusting the straps properly. Now I love them and have been wearing them everyday. I will be taking these with me everytime I travel from now on.

I really wanted to like these shoes but as soon as I tried them I could tell they would slip off my feet with every step, or I'd have to flex my toes to keep them on like some kind of slide sandal. I exchanged them for the higher heel coverage Sloan. I did really like the wool flet and the footbed is comfortable.

My feet are just not made for these. I can tell they are a very well made sandal and my husband has a pair of Chacos that he adores, but they are so uncomfortable right around the part where the rubber sole is molded upwards to cradle the area just in front of the heel. Rather than feeling cradled, the space right behind my arch at the forward part of my heel (for lack of a better way to describe it) felt like there was something jabbing into it uncomfortably. If my heels were a bit more narrow, these would work. If the raised part was a bit further forward and hit my arch instead of the area that becomes my heel, these would work. As it is, I feel like I'm stepping on that part of the shoe, and these emphatically do not work. I reached out to Zappo's customer service to determine if this was something that would get better with being broken in or if it was better to just return them. Based on a great conversation I had with a customer service agent, they are heading back and I am checking out Tevas and Keens instead, as I have had good luck in the past with both.

Sadly, Chaco has changed the footbed of their shoe, and this does not have the arch support I need. Otherwise, they are very cute shoes and the size 9 1/2 for true to size. Stay true to your customer base, Chaco, or have an "original" fit and a regular fit insole. I should have listened to the other reviews about changes from Chaco.

I was hoping to replace a very old pair of chaco's that has shown ware. The same model,same size, different color. These new chacos are the correct foot length,but the fit is sloppy. I'm sliding all over. I don't have narrow, or wide feet, just average. Huge disappointment. They are going back

I purchased these in a size 8 and a size 9 since I normally wear a size 8.5. The size 8 was very narrow - even for me who has very thin, narrow feet! The arch of my foot was sitting on top of where the strap meets the footbed. If you're a half sizer your best bet is to size up, especially if you have wide feet. The size 9 was too big in length and felt more clunky than the 8. Also I noticed the strap was too loose on my foot - these definitely fit less narrow than the size 8. The arch support is milder than the arch offered with the Vionic Tides, which I also tried. A lower arch is what I need since I'm very flat-footed and often find shoes with significant arch support to be painful. I wanted to wear these for my upcoming trip to theme parks in Orlando. It's too bad they aren't offered in half sizes because an 8.5 might have been exactly what I needed.

I just received these and I love, love, love them. They are really comfy and look great. Was a little worried about the ankle strap since I'm over 50, but they look great!

My "Go To" shoe for years. Comfy, sturdy and I just throw them in the wash when funkified.

I really like the idea of this shoe, hoping for the typical Chaco support. The textile insole and the foot bed were disappointing in terms of comfort and support. Plus, if you want to feel the spread of your toes the way you do in a Chaco sandal, that will also be disappointing. I started with my usual size 8.5. Then went up to a 9, and returned that too. I'd need to try a 9.5.

7s a little too small, 8s too big, what I wouldn't give for half sizes (and/or narrows) Loved the shoes but both sizes had to go back.

Comfy and true to size! I'm a teacher and on my feet ALL DAY. These shoes provide the arch and heel support I need to get through the day.
