User Review: Chaco Men's Z/2 Unaweep
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $95
If you don't mind a thick and somewhat weighty sole, then strap on the most comfortable sandal you've ever worn. I wish I had bought these years before I actually did. Durable like a rhinoceros and guaranteed to give you a sexy tan line... I don't know why you're still sitting and reading this review, you're wasting time.
About 4 years ago I took off for a 5-night trip through some of the most gorgeous and breathtaking wilderness God has ever created. Yep, you guessed it, Glacier National Park. It was a seemingly stupid choice to take the Chacos I had bought just that month with me on this trip. However, I couldn't have been more impressed.
Through the years I have worn my Chacos more and more on a daily routine and less and less when I'm pursuing my outdoor hobbies. In either occasion they perform great. Once you figure out the strap pattern and get the sandals to snug properly to your feet, you'll never want to take them off (at least I don't).
The form fitting sole is perfect for supporting you and whatever you may be packing or carrying in a ergonomic way. The team that created these must have done their homework. Additionally, I have taken these sandals through harsh conditions and beat them up, and they still are in tip top shape.
The one concern I do have is the bulkiness and weight of the Chaco, however the newer versions have shed a significant amount of weight. And although you can wear these in the water, I have found that if you tromp though a creek and continue on your hike that the wet straps will rub uncomfortably (but then again you should expect something like this to happen).
Overall, an excellent sandal.
