Admit it. If you don't already have a pair of sport sandals, you wish you did. You find yourself walking through some outfitter and there they are...these curious looking sandals. They aren't anything like the sandals all the Abercrombie kids are wearing, and they don't really look like anything special. Then you look at the employees in the store and realize that they ALL are wearing these things.
And rightfully so. Sport sandals are a perfect fit for those who are into water adventure sports, or those who require ultra-breathable footwear on their day hikes. However, some stand out far above the rest. This is the case with the Chaco Z/2 Unaweep sandal.
To start things off, I have to start with the Vibram sole. The same brand you have probably trusted to provide the sole for your hiking boots have created an equally impressive version for sandals. The pull through strap system really makes this sandal a piece of your foot, which comes in handy when crossing creeks or hiking in rocky areas. The combination of the Vibram sole and the pull through straps make this sandal one you will never walk out the door without.
To top things off, the sole can be replaced and the nice folks at Chaco are environmentally friendly in their production of these great adventure sport necessities. Go out, strap on a pair, and head for the hills. Your trekking will never be the same.
