Z/Volv 2 Sandal

rated 5 of 5 stars Chaco improved everything I didn't like about the ones I had in 2002. I've worn these for six months each of the last two years and they're the first footwear I go to if it's the high 50s and warmer. That's because they're so comfortable and my feet can breathe. I had two pair of the same in the early 2000s and they sucked. Those were painful to wear due to the self-tightening of the big toe strap to the point of cutting off circulation causing pain. Add to that whatever the material was that made… Full review

Z/1 Unaweep

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Chaco's Z/1 Unaweep is a great canoeing sandal. While I do list out a number of cons, I would recommend these for anyone searching for a durable sandal. I purchased the Z/1 specifically for my first trip to the Boundary Waters in 2014. I wanted footwear that would allow me to wade in and out of a canoe and move straight into portaging. I choose the Z/1 over the more popular Z/2 so that I would be able to slip on a warm pair of wool socks if the night turned cool. I felt the toe strap of the Z/2… Full review

Z/1 Classic

rated 4.5 of 5 stars These sandals will keep you comfortable all day long. They are sturdy, have good traction, and will hold up no matter what you put them through. These are one of the best sandals you can buy. I have gone on numerous float trips and even a 5-mile hike in the mountains in them and they have held up. They have pretty good traction so you can hike fairly well in them. I also never have gotten any blisters in them. One downside is that when walking in water they tend to get pea gravel stuck between the… Full review

Outcross Evo 2

rated 4 of 5 stars These shoes are great for hiking in or on the water. I got this shoe because I hike around and in shallow portions of some rivers and lakes in my area. I also take my dog to a dog park that borders the bay so I needed a pair of shoes like the Chacos to go in the water to play with my dog. He loves to swim and go into the water to fetch things. These shoes have limited use because they are not well cushioned to be useful for a long or medium hike. But they drain very well and dry out very quickly. Full review

Z/Cloud 2

rated 4 of 5 stars A meaningful upgrade over Chaco's Z/2 classic sandal. The Z/Cloud 2's topsole and midsole are softer and more forgiving than previous versions. Chaco's new-ish proprietary sole is grippy on wet boat surfaces and rocks. The straps and adjustability are about the same as previous versions, but don't undersell the ability to adjust them and not worry about river grime fouling the closure. I have been wearing Chacos for about ten years, but I will try to start from zero and explain what these water… Full review
