Bought these to replace a worn out pair of Tevas, which has been the only brand of sandal I've worn for many years. The crossover design, particularly for the big toe, takes a couple days of getting used to. But the extra security and adjustability (without worrying with velcro) is well worth it. Highly recommended for any outdoor activity that doesn't require toe protection.

Great water sandal
Excellent comfort for in and out of water. Adjustable straps provide a nice all around fit. Sandal has good arch support and good traction on sole for rocky climbs.

Best Purchase Ever
This product is a comfortable, warm-weather shoe. They can be worn for walking everyday, rafting (much better than those hideous water shoes), hiking and much more! I recomend this shoe for everyone!!

You can never go wrong with Chaco
I have been wearing Chaco Sandals for several years. The Z2 Sandals are just as comfortable as the others. Chaco's have the best Arch Support of any other sandals made. I will be using the Z2's for a week long trip down the Colorado River I bought these because once you put them on and tighten down the straps , they will not slip off. The Vibram sole is another great feature . Chaco use to have Vibram soles on all their sandals . I would recommend them to anyone.

The Z/2 sandals are exactly what I was looking for. I have long, narrow feet, and it was really hard to find sandals for my size 16 foot. I was a little worried about ordering a 15, but I figured that if my toes were a little closer to the edge it would be ok. Upon receiveing the sandals, I could immediately tell they were well made and sturdy. At first, the area where my heel sat in the sandals was really narrow and uncomfortable, and it piched the area just in front of my heel, enough that after walking around my room I was ready to send the things back. Since I already had ordered the biggest size, however, I decided to keep them on a little longer and hopefully they would soften up and expand a little. Well, they did! I just kept trying to break them in, and they finally conformed to my foot. My worry about them being too short for my feet turned out to be null, as they still have about 1/2" to spare from the end of my big toe to the tip of my sandal (which I have found is helpful in protecting my toes a little bit). My intention was to buy these for fishing, kayaking, and just knocking around this summer, and after testing them out in the water these are perfect for it. I had read a little bit about people backpacking, hiking, etc. in these, and I did not buy these with the intention of doing that, but after walking up and down a lot of hills I do not think I would want to spend much time in steep terrain with these, as the toe loop really digs in hard when I walk downhill making it very uncomfortable. Otherwise, I really like the toe loop for the added stability it gives. They are actually even very comfortable to run in! Overall, I am very happy with my purchase, and I would recommend these to someone looking for a rugged, comfortable sandal.
