User Review: Chaco Men's Z/2 Unaweep
Use: Everywhere where my Chaco flip wasn't applicable
Price Paid: $40
Chaco makes great sandals. I picked these guys up a year ago after buying their Chaco Flip the year before, and I've been fairly happy with them.
They're machine washable, strap adjustable (cool, one continuous looping strap), and they sport a Vibram sole on them. Furthermore, the arch support in them in fantastic...ish. While the arch is unmatched in size and feel, it doesn't fit me, as an individual, perfectly, causing a slightly awkward fit, but no pain or discomfort. (Buyers please take note that as a seller of shoes, not all shoes fit everyone perfectly. Deal with it.)
The sandals themselves have held up beautifully, suffering all kinds of outdoor abuse in 3 different countries. They stay close to your feet and protect your toes surprisingly well by limiting movement outside the sandal's base.
The reason I give these sandals only 4/5 stars may be biased and unfair, so this lost star might not apply to you. I sell this sandal in an outdoors store, and I am always propped up on my feet in a weird way. These sandals, while great for standing/walking/hiking, aren't really meant for this, and they hurt if I position myself like that for too long, so I take a half star off.
The other half star comes from fit. I've got very wide toes and since the normal version didn't fit, I got the wides. This caused a few things, including strap movement where my feet are not wide, and thus constricting/loosening here and there, but it was nothing that could not be fixed by adjustment once every 20-30 minutes of tromping around.
