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 slippers. I have long narrow feet. Why do all shoe manufacturers think that if you wear size 12 you also have D width? Although the 12 is probably my size, the 11 works and it is narrower.

Love these new shoes. I got them for yard work and they are excellent! I did have to get a size bigger but who knows why.

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!

OK people - I know Chacos have great support, I just don't get the hype about them. To me, Chacos are really uncomfortable, and have too much support, if there is such a thing. I have tried several pairs before this, but this time I compared them with some other sport sandals with great support - Vionic Muir sandals- and they just felt ridiculous. As someone who is very particular about her shoe choices because (a) I have foot, knee and back problems and (b) shoes are expensive so they better fit right, below are the points I don't like about Chacos. I recognize that I have narrow feet and everyone's foot is different, but these are my complaints: - all of the support from the straps is concentrated in the ankle, with the front part of the foot (arch forward) basically left out to flap around. - If you have bunions, the strap across the toes is in the exact wrong location. This tightness across the toe joints would get really painful, really fast. - the soles are too thick. I like my sports sandals to let be jump nimbly across rocks and out of kayaks; I feel that these shoes would make me trip trying to do either! But I know that everyone's preferences are different. Personally, these definitely don't work and I am going with Vionic Muir sandals in brown with lime green accents. They aren't quite as stylish as the cool patterns that chaco's have, but they are still pretty cool and fit like a dream - or rather, like an adventure waiting to happen!

Love these shoes! I got a pair before these and loved them so I decided I needed a second pair and these were a great choice! Good arch support, comfortable, and cute!! I never take them off. I will inform you that I normally wear a size 6 in shoes and I always have to order a size 5 in Chacos. Chacos just really fit your foot, up close and personal, and tennis shoes don't, so it makes sense to me that I would need a size smaller. Also, everyone that sees me wearing these beauties, always has a compliment rolling off their tongue.

Yes, I wanted these to work but didn't. Same thing happened as with the Teva Omnium. Very hard to slip my foot in and out of them. Not real convenient for the airport travel thing.

I have worn these shoes several times since I purchased them and still am not sure whether I like them or not. I am still adjusting the straps. The strap around my toe on the right shoe is aggravating, but the rest of the straps are comfortable. Because it keeps my foot strapped in so tight my feet perspire a bit too much. But the sole is very sturdy and the arch is more than any other sandal I own. So I can't decide if I like them or not. I bought them to take to Italy but have decided not to, they are heavy in my suitcase and since I'm not crazy about them here at home, taking them is not a good idea.

Extremely comfortable. Straps are all adjustable but it is tricky! Extremely cute, not what I was expecting for an "outdoor" sandal. Runs large - I normally wear an 8.5 or 9 wide. The 8 wide fit great!

These flip-flops are amazing! I had the last pair for over 5 years of regular use and they are some of the most comfortable shoes of any type I have ever worn. The soles are very firm with a high arch support which makes them good for standing all day or walking for miles. I've walked 10 mile days in these no problem.

I got these super fast with Zappos! I got to pick the color and style that I wanted even with the season about to end I found them here! It was super fast and easy. I love my new Chacos! They fit perfectly. They can be a little hard to adjust and need a good weekend of hiking to really break them in but after that you never want to take them off because their arch support is so good! I hope this helps!
