Option for 2 stars would not work on my ipad. I've had these for 3 years and live in the Northeast so don't wear them for 9 months of the year. I am disappointed that I can no longer wear them because the bottom traction wore off making them extremely slippery! I almost wiped out a few times walking down small hills of grass. When I first got them I would have given them 5 stars but now I have to buy another pair of sandals, these are not even a year old in terms of how many months I've actually worn them! I wish Chaco would make a more rugged sole!

Bought this shoe because I needed something I could teach in, and I've always loved the Chacos sandal footbed. The footbed on this does not disappoint, and has saved me from sore feet at the end of long days of standing and pacing. I wouldn't say this is the most fashionable shoe, but it gets the job done. I will say that the footbed is narrower, and perhaps a skooch shorter than the footbed on my Chacos Z2s and Z1s. I purchased them in size 12, same as my sandals, and they are snug but not too tight. If they offered a 12 1/2, I might have gone with that. As it is a slip on, I suspect they needed to make it snug, as there are no laces to tighten.

I have not worn flip flops for many, many years. I bought these to see how they would work and they were fantastic. I have a lot of foot pain and have a hard time finding shoes that are comfortable. I cannot take these off! I don't know what I will do when it gets cold. You won't go wrong with these!

I bought these my second year in College and they are still going strong. Come on Chacos I get it already...you make a great shoe that held up 14 years but really I have no excuse to buy a new pair of sandals. Ugh...that's a long time without new sandals. I mean I dated, got married, went to Peace Corps, just put my first child in kindergarten - just die already Chacos. I bought them in black so of course they still look brand new. I mean I thought I was buying a sandal that would last 10 years but these will easily get passed on to my children when they leave for college. I'm in it for a lifetime with no excuse to buy new sandal. Not cool Chacos!

Good arch support but a little on the thin and flimsy side. Runs slightly narrow. Also note that this flip flip isn't flat side-to-side across the forefoot, as with Reef and other brands. Instead there is a little ridge protrusion that runs along the outside edge of the shoe, which you can feel under your feet. Annoying and slightly uncomfortable to my feet. If you have normal-width feed I'd suggest trying both regular and wide sizes to see if either work better.

Fits well, good support - a little difficult to get straps in the right place. Great shoe.

I need sandals for river rafting. My podiatrist had recommended the Chaco brand. I did not have high expectations but these sandals could not have been better. The straps are easy to adjust, the instructions are on the inside of the box. Ended up hiking in them and the red dust washed right off.

I ordered my regular Chaco "sandal" size and the footbed was a good fit. Great arch support for my flat, pronating feet. The outsole on this shoe is also very substantial -- I can tell it would wear more like a sneaker than a shoe. Great tread/traction too. I chose the black and felt the styling was okay for an everyday sporty MJ. Not sure I would ever choose this shoe to go with a skirt though, even a "sporty" one. It's just a bit too chunky. Really, the only problem for me was with the toe box. It was so strangely large and and deep...I could have fit two finger-widths between the top of the shoe and the surface of my feet. To me, this just looked strange and it was too much of a "miss" for me to keep the shoes.

I am a college student, and the hardest adjustment made was the amount of walking there is to get to a class. It was hard for me to find comfy shoes that I could wear for when it was hot out - the words support and flip flops don't correspond. These Chacos are the best purchase I have made in awhile. I feel comfortable walking a little ways with these on. They give me the support that I need to get to all of my class without pain or irritation. If you are a college student and need comfy shoes for your long days - these are a must.

Great looking tennis shoe.I put my own orthotics in them and they feel very comfortable. I wish they came in different colors.

Grab this shoe while it is available! It's comfortable, supportive, cute, not heavy and perfect. It's a limited edition so go for it...the sole is perfect, much better than the newer ones.

My second pair of Chacos. My first pair lasted 9 years before the straps began to fray. Best pair of shoes I've ever had. So far these new ones have made some improvements to the design. They aren't as wide which helps forging through water. Also the heel is more supportive.

I wanted cute, comfy shoes to wear after biking all day on my recent trip to Wisconsin. These Chacos are perfect; they look good with slacks or a skirt, can be worn with or without thin socks; they are so cute! They fit beautifully right out of the box - always a little scary to buy shoes right before a trip! I have wide feet and high arches, and I love the fit. I've worn Chaco sandals for years, and they always make my feet feel good, and these MaryJanes do the same. I'm very happy with my purchase.

I LOVE these shoes. I'd wear them all the time if it was socially acceptable, they are so comfortable. I got them as river shoes, but ended up wearing them on some pretty strenuous hikes, with no stability problems. (Got some gravel under my feet, but I was wearing sandals.) I also wear them during errands, after surfing, etc. I like the toe strap a lot, I feel like it adds stability. When I was wearing them around camp with socks (gasp!) I just shoved my foot over the toe strap. No problem. I'm usually a 7.5 borderline 8, but read in reviews they ran big so I got a 7 and they fit perfectly. I do have to keep adjusting them because they get tight after a few pulls on, takes a minute or two to get them back right. I gave them full marks for style because hey, they are what they are.

Best pair of shoes I own. Hands down. I wear them every single day. Note: They do take some breaking in, and your feet will need some time to adjust to the arch! But trust me, it's well worth it. The best part is -- they last forever. Mine still look like they did the day I bought them. Do yourself a favor and just click "Buy!"

I love my Chaco's! It can be a little intimidating spending so much on a pair of sandals, but they are well worth the money! I have 2 pairs. My first pair are at least 10 years old and are the single strap style. The soles don't have as much traction as the did when I first got them but I still wear them. My second pair are the cuter double strap style. They are 7 years old, and one of the double straps recently broke. But I still feel that I got my money's worth out of them! I was starting to feel it was time to replace them though because the traction was starting to wear a little too much. So I am starting to look for my 3rd pair and I have no hesitations about buying them again. Though I am trying to decide whether to go for the cuter double straps or the slightly more durable single strap. Also the double strap style took a little longer to get broken in and comfortable compared to the single style. But I wear these almost everywhere! I love hiking in them and find the arch support in them so comfortable. I usually wear 8.5 to size 9 shoe and have a narrow foot. I bought size 9 both times and they fit perfectly. These are my favorite pair of sandals! For anyone having hesitations about these shoes, I say throw caution to the wind and get yourself a pair! You will not be disappointed!

These had great arch support but were too narrow, especially in the mid sole for my wide feet (EE including bunions). They are more like a D width. Make sure you get the right size so the arch support hits the correct part if your foot. They are well-built, heavier than average because they're Chacos, and look like they'd last a long time.

I love these! They're incredibly comfortable, I can get them wet, no problem and once adjusted there's no pinching or chaffing. I had ordered the other style that wrapped around your toe and had to send them back because the straps did not stay where you placed them. Not a problem with these! Awesome flip flops!

I love my Chaco Z's. I have both the z/1 and the Z/2's. They are by far the most comfortable sandals I have ever owned! I have knee issues and do a lot of walking. This foot bed gives me the perfect support and balance so my knee does not wobble and then become sore. For me they are better than hiking boots by far, aside from the loose dirt problem. The adjustable straps are a bit tricky. One needs to adjust them just about daily. The straps are soft and the sandals can be wore right out of the box with no discomfort or blisters. Some people think the footbed is overly textured and takes a few wearings to adjust to. I had no problems. I prefer the Z/2's slightly for their increased stability but the Z/1's are fine and great to wear with socks. Best shoes/sandals ever!

WOW! I bought them as a gift for my girlfriend. She LOVES em! SHe used to have a pair of Yampas, but they were stolen or lost or something. I got her these as a change of pace, and also bc they're similar but with a larger tread. We like to hike and run and camp and whatnot, so she was ECSTATIC about that extra tread, and loved the new color too. I highly recommend these shoes. She loves them and raves about how comfortable both these and the Yampas were. Zappos was extremely helpful too. It was recommended to me to buy both sizes I thoght she might be, and it worked out great; she tried both and found the perfect size. Now I can return the other size for free. Thanks Zappos!
