Chaco Updraft Bulloo Sandals - Men's - 2012 Closeoutis rated3.0out of5by3.
Rated4out of5byfromDoes the job wellwell i bought this because a few of my friends have them. they like em and they seem really comfy. i used them at first for casual, low marks for the blisters i received but take into account that some shoes need a breaking in before they get comfy. i would not say that they are great for casual. but thats just me. now i gave them another try in the hawaiian jungle and here they performed very well. high marks for this in the outdoors. kept my feet comfy and worked well in the water. no chafing this time but i found i was slipping on smooth or mossy rocks. grips better when dry. allround chaco's do the job well.

Rated1out of5byfromMy first Chacos didn't work out.The strap junctions are made of a rubbery plastic that rubbed the outsides of my ankles raw during a round of disc golf, the first time I took them outside. I returned them and went with the Chaco Z/1 Unaweep Sandals with a nylon junction and love them.

Rated4out of5byfromGreat sandals - get right sizeMake sure you get a good fit and you will like Chacos. I ordered these after seeing a couple reviews that it would be better for a narrow foot. Perfect for me because other chaco's won't tighten down on my foot, not enought strap. They run about a half size larger than other chacos from what i can tell. As other reviews have mentioned, the plastic/rubber piece where the straps come together can poke/cut into your ankle. I personally don't have that issue unless my feet are at a weird angle sitting down. On a canoe trip these preformed great! Much better than expected and better than my keens which these replaced. I loved my keens but wore them out. Decided to try these and love them so far! My wife likes that my feet don't smell now like they did with my keens.
