Price Paid: $40
Chacos are the best. Offer the best support and look good too. These are extremely comfy. Easiest flip to just throw on. No straps to tighten.
I would recommend these to anyone that doesn't like the feel of heel straps. Though if you are an avid climber, hiker, etc I highly recommend getting the Z/1 with the rear heel straps for support.
Materials: vibram soles, proprietary anatomical footbed, nylon straps
Use: everyday wear, rough use, anything really.
Break-in Period: get the straps set, and your set.
Weight: heavier than most sandals but worth it.
Price Paid: $50
I wear these shoes more than any other pair I own year round. I beat the hell out of them and they never give me any problems. The footbed is very supportive and great for long trips. I took them to Belize for a mission trip and walked around 10+ miles a day and no problems whatsoever. I highly recommend these if you like being comfortable.
