Worth every penny
It seemed like so many fellow backpackers and outdoor types had chacos and wore them for everything from hiking to apres hiking to going to class and everything in between. But I was dubious about the extra weight. Having given them a try, and taken them on several backpacking trips and broken them in, I can't imagine not having them with me. Once you adjust the straps the way you want them, they are perfect and it's easy to forget they're even on. you will want to take your time at finding the exact adjustment you want. Yes, they are heavier than some camp shoes, flip flops, etc. but the comfort and support are an unbeatable combo. These things are so durable and well-made too. And to top it all off, they are cool looking, which of course make you cool looking too. Altrec has good prices on these things as well as a good color selection. You will not regret your decision to enter the world of chacos.

Great Sandal for the Flat Footed!!!
I am a huge fan of sandals and to my dismay, when my arches collapsed, I expirenced extreme difficulty in wearing any type for long periods of time. Then came my intro to Chacos. They have an extremely robust sole and I find that I can stand on them for hours at ends, which I can't do without ortopedic inserts in normal shoes. Great for shorter hikes (3-5 miles) and/or just hanging around town I would recommend these sandals to everyone. Yes, they are a bit pricey, but they are well worth the investment!!!!

This is my second pair. After 4 years the first are still going strong but I wanted the Z1 without the toe loop to wear with socks. I both hike and bike in them. The traction on rocks and pedals is great.

husband loves them
I purchased these for my husband, active 56 year old. I thought the support would be great for his feet, and he absolutely loves them. I would recommend highly. ginmac

2nd Pair, Still a Success
This is my second pair of Chaco's. Buy them out of season! They are way cheaper. The only flaw is they take awhile to get adjusted and broken in but after that they seriously are the best shoe you'll ever have!
