rated 5 of 5 stars The Chaco Z/Volv Sandals are more of an evolution of the classic design rather than a revolution in the design — which means they are very very good. And I like it that way. I owned a pair of Chaco Z1 Classics for over 15 years. I wore the sandals as everyday wear, hiking sandals, beach wear, boating shoes, house shoes, fly fishing shoes, etc., etc., etc... I took the sandals on a year long adventure traveling through Latin America. The sandals were truly amazing. After 15 years they finally blew… Full review

Z/Volv 2 Sandal

rated 4 of 5 stars These are durable hiking sandals that adjust to and stabilize your foot. They’re great for day trips, leisurely walks, and short hikes involving mud or water. I originally bought these sandals to take on a trip to Mexico where I would be doing a couple of short day hikes around the Zapatista perimeters, but spending a significant amount of time in a tour bus or sightseeing. I wanted something that would hold up well to walk in all day, but also work with the outfits I had chosen. These sandals… Full review

Outcross Evo 3

rated 4 of 5 stars Chaco provides great comfort, yet again. I have had these shoes for about a year, and I've enjoyed every hike I've taken with them. Beyond some normal wear, they are in great shape. Of the four Outcross shoes, Chaco claims that this is the most trail-worthy pair. They've done well for me so far. I've used them on parts of the Appalachian Trail in Tennessee and North Carolina, in the Smokies, and in Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area in Las Vegas, Nevada.  These shoes fit pretty well. I… Full review

Vade Shoe

rated 3 of 5 stars Comfy out of the box. But if you are looking for a hiking shoe look at something else! Bought those shoes early summer 2015 to replace my expensive Lowa shoes. The fit was great right out of the box. I wear size 9.5. Sizing was great, enough room for my toes and since I got a sporty small ankle the't y are no space. There is no ankle support. It feels like a sponge, which makes it very comfy! Traction is an issue. The outsole groves are not deep enough to grasp onto wet muddy terrain, so it very… Full review

ZX/2 Unaweep

rated 5 of 5 stars These are the most comfortable shoes I've owned. They take about 10 miles before they mold to your feet, but once they do, you'll love them forever. Plus you can't beat their amazing customer service were anything to happen to your new found amazing shoes. I got these for my birthday, I love to hike and my husband bought them for me. I fell in love...after wearing them about 10 miles in. At first I hated them. They didn't fit right. They kept slipping. It was one problem after another. I truly thought… Full review
