    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    by fromStrange fit Arch way too high. Uncomfortable to walk in. Regular width pinched bottom of my heel so I went to wide width. Then the toe area was WAY too wide. Liked the look and versatility but had to return. Did find that another chaco style fit better. Still very high in the arch and takes some getting used to.

    by fromSad I had to return I was very excited to buy these sandals after such good reviews by friends but no matter how I adjusted them the straps always moved to tighten the strap around my big toe. I had to return them.

    by fromA shoe you'll remember... I wanted to love these sandals. If I wear them for a short amount of time I do love them! However, I don't much like having to take them off every half hour to re-adjust the straps around the toe. Since all of the straps are attached through the sole of the shoe, as you walk it pulls tighter and tighter on the straps. After a bit of walking, if your big toe isn't purple yet it will be soon. Other than this (pretty big) issue, they are wonderful sandles. I wear them to work for a dressy/casual look and they are wonderful.

    by fromExc. quality with a significant flaw Like other reviewers, I wanted to like these sandals. At first all was well. I had the usual adjustment issues but got past those. Had the fit just right. Enjoyed wearing the sandals a couple hours at a time and found that I prefer the look of the Yampas to the heavier sole and tread of the Unaweeps. Then, the first time I wore this pair for several hours, I found that by the end of the day the straps on the left sandal were so tight that my big toe had marks for hours after I removed them. I've worn these sandals at the end of the day before and I think my foot was no more swollen that day than it had been any other. And, oddly, the right sandal still fit comfortably. These are wonderful sandals in many respects, but I'm not willing to continually adjust them so I'm sending them back. Gonna swap them for the toe-less kind even though I don't think they're as attractive.

    by fromMy big toes said no I so wanted to love these sandals -- they're incredibly cute, and I've always wanted a pair of Chacos. First I tried a pair of women's 9 wides. I became an expert in the straps in no time, because I had to keep loosening the stranglehold on my big toes every 10 minutes. The wides were way too long; the heel strap extended past the back of the sandal. Next I tried a pair of 9 regulars -- they were too narrow and also kept trying to squeeze off my big toe. So I went to a men's 7 regular with a single strap, and in the words of Goldilocks, they were just right. Thank you, REI, for your open return policy; I wear my men's Chacos every chance I get. While they're not as cute and girly as the double-strapped sandals, I do not have to beg my walking companions to wait up while I adjust my straps ...

    by fromClaustrophobic! I really wanted to love these sandals! I think they are the cutest of the Chaco sandals, and was excited to buy them. Getting the fit right takes some time the first couple times, but just follow the diagram. I love the footbed of these sandals..very supportive and durable. However, the toe loop eventually drove me mad. I would get the fit just right, and the toe loop would seem to tighten after an hour or so of wear. I found myself constantly having to adjust the straps, etc. I would start out with the loop around my toe fairly loose, and would end up with the two thin straps digging into my toe. It was really a claustrophobic feeling![...]exchange them for the Y/1, which do not have the toe loop. They are so much more comfortable!! Unless you are wearing these for a lot of hiking (and are concerned about your toe being "free"), look into the Y/1. They are also easier to adjust (the thin straps look cute, but I think make getting the fit just right a little harder).But I love the footbed and overall quality. Comfortable to stand in all day (ie Disney), play at the playground, or for light hikes.

    by fromLoved the shoe if it fit! Loved the shoe....but wear 8 1/2 which they do not come in. Had to get size 8, 9 were too big! I have very thin feet. Had sandals for a year, kept trying to wear them...ended up with blisters every time! Super sad! Have many friends that have them with no problems. Unfortunately, I had to return them.

    by fromGreat support, but annoying straps I purchased these mainly for support and I heard great things about the Vibram technology. The sandal do provide great support for all use. They've been good for backpacking trips because I like breathable feet and this sandal actually provides the support and balance I need for long trips without my body feeling the pains later as was the case with an old pair of Teva Terra-Fi. However, the biggest annoyance with these sandals are the straps. They make micro adjustments as you walk and eventually, the straps will tighten to the point where they strangle the big toes. For long use on backpacking trips, it required frequent adjustments that forced me to stop because the straps caused tenderness and blistering. While gauze and tape alleviate the tightening of the strap, I'll most likely look for another sandal that inflicts less pain.
