Rated4out of5byAnnAndfromNot badI'll start by saying that I love these sandals. I've found them to be much more versatile and attractive than many of the other Chaco styles, unfortunately I don't think they are as durable as some of the bulkier styles. I wore these sandals at least a few days a week for a summer. They are casual enough to wear out to the store and for running errands around town but were comfortable and supportive enough for more outdoorsy activities like kayaking and canoeing, light hikes and nature walks, rocky river adventures, and lakeside camping trips. Although I did get a lot of wear out of these sandals, I was disappointed to find some tearing of the sole around where the straps connect to it, near the heel. That said, I was very happy with the traction they provided as I climbed over wet boulders on one camping trip and the tearing appears to be more cosmetic than anything, and it isn't even noticeable when the sandals are on.

Rated5out of5bysnooksfromMy 1st Chaco'sMy 1st Chaco's, always been a Birkenstock gal but planning a Caribbean Cruise with lots of walking and beach/water excursions and hope these will be my "go-to" shoes for all of it! Very strong in the arch support which I like but will break these in around the house before stuffing them in my carry-on.....

Rated4out of5bySHEBAfromGet these while you canThis is my second pair of Chaco's and these are just as comfortable as my Updraft's. Very good arch support and great for all day walking. My only complaint about these is that the straps are too long and drag on the ground.

Rated5out of5byThe Tired HedonistfromMade for my feetThese shoes excede my expectations. The look great and feel great but what took them to the next level of greatness was that all the straps on the shoes are adjustable. I was able to get the perfect amount of tightness. I have a long slender foot and sandals with straps or flip flops always fall off my feet. These shoes are the full package: versatile, stylish, and comfortable.

Rated4out of5byVickiQfromComfortable and not too bulkyI bought these as my first pair of Chacos and I am enjoying wearing them. The style is cute and they are not as bulky looking or feeling as other Chacos. I have the brown pair, and I noticed that the footbed discolored a little after wearing them in the river. However, I don't think it's very noticeable, or matters much for a pair of outdoorsy shoes. I find them comfortable to wear all day for outdoor adventuring.

Rated4out of5byphytofromgreat sandalsI have an old pair of the Z2 Chacos that need new straps, so I searched for new Chacos to have while my trusty pair were getting repaired. These sandals have the nice strappy look that is "in" at the moment, yet as they are Chacos, they can be trusted as a worthwhile pair of sandals to own. They are more stylish and less chunky than the Z2 sandals (cannot recall if I have Unaweep or Yampa). BUT one thing to note: I wore them all day walking around a museum and botanic garden in San Francisco recently, and I found that the "less chunky" look of the sandals meant that they had less arch support, and less cushion, so my feet were a bit achy after the full day of standing and walking. No chafing, but I did wish I had worn more cushioned/supportive shoes. Another thing I have noted is, as they are the two-strap style, and still need some breaking in, slipping them on in a hurry is not as doable as with one strap Chacos! These still require some adjustment and strapping in, aligning of the straps and such. I feel as though the end of the strap is a tad longer than needed, and hangs lower than on my Z2 pair. Just some warnings! I want to keep these as my 'nice' pair of Chacos, and so I have not done any major river trips or hikes in them. I'm glad I bought these sandals for their style, and would buy them again. I'll just stick to more cushioned shoes for days where I'm on my feet for long periods.
