After reading many, many reviews of sandals I felt confident trying Chaco Z/1. Well I gave them a good try. Wore them for a couple of weeks and then took them on vacation with me. Color me puzzled because they just aren't comfortable. They don't flex at all so walking on rocks doesn't transmit a feeling so you know they are gripping well. They aren't cushioned at all so it feels as if you are walking on a rigid and hard surface. Add to this that whereas the straps do permit excellent adjustment, they are really hard to adjust and didn't seem to be loosening up with use. I switched from Tevas because of some bothersome quirks but it was a mistake. I am so glad to be back in my Tevas quirks and all.

Love these sandals. My husband has a pair and he wears them all the time. I decided to try them and now I understand why. They are the most comfy sandals I own. Love 'em. First I tried the pair with a big toe strap and that style didn't work for me. I felt like my foot was out of alignment. Then I tried this style and it's great. I like the style and color. Wish this particular shoe came in more color choices.

This shoe will probably hold up forever because I will likely just throw them away. They were a COLOSSAL waste of money. By far the most expensive shoe I've ever purchased, and a COMPLETE LET-DOWN. I was looking to replace a 20 year old pair of Teva sandals, and wanted something with a bit more protection. I wanted a sandal that I could wear without socks, for camping, theme-parks, water sports, etc. I wore them for a couple of short 1-2 hour casual outings, and liked them very much. I wore them to a theme park, and got hotspots from all the walking very quickly. Those turned into HORRIBLE blisters. I've had better luck at theme parks with cheaper tennis shoes and no socks. These are a terrible product. For the cost, I expect performance. Service from Zappos sucked too, two thumbs down on shoes and store.

This is a great shoe for weekend errands and walks. Light enough for backpack travel. It looks fine with an informal skirt, shorts, capris, whatever. I have wide, flat feet and these accommodate.

These sandals are very popular among the college generation, and I finally talked myself into getting a pair. These are the only sandals I can see myself wearing for long periods of time doing absolutely anything outdoors, or more simply, just walking to my next class. The arch support is second to none, even if you don't have high arches! These are perfect for rainy days as well and the vibriam sole makes it feel like I am walking on pillows. I am usually a 9.5 and the 9 fit perfectly with ample toe/wiggle room. I even tested these out the moment I opened the box and walked my dog in them with ease. I took off a star because it took me longer than expected to adjust the straps for a proper fit. You really need to tug and pull as the straps are pretty snug inside the shoe, but still great nonetheless. Definitely a must buy for all ages!

Ordered these for my daughter who needed a water shoe for camp. She loves them! They were exactly what she was looking for. They dried quickly and kept her feet from getting scraped up by the rocks in the river. She loved that she could adjust the straps to fit her foot, it gave her foot stability.

I was looking for a more ergonomic flip flop, something that might reduce my plantar fasciitis pain, since i wear them so often. These are definitely better quality and more foot-friendly than my usual Haviannas. I don't like the look/style quite as much, but they're growing on me a little bit.

At first these flip flops were quite firm. I wasn't used to the support. But after breaking them in, they are extremely comfortable. I wear them all the time!

These shoes are great. The fit is good and they are cute. It is hard to find a cute pair of shoes that can be worn comfortably all day! My only complaint is the noise that the zipper on the back of the heel makes when you walk. It annoys me. Other than that, they are great!

The double straps are hard to adjust, especially around the toe. The straps twist up and it can be hard to figure out which section to pull on to loosen the toe straps properly. It takes a good 10 minutes of fiddling to get it right every time I put on my shoes. Once I get them on properly though, they are comfortable.

I am not a fan of the look of these sandals but I was convinced by many Chaco lovers to get them before a trip to the UK. I am so glad I got this pair. They are lightweight enough to not not send the luggage over, small enough to throw in the backpack before heading out for the day, and comfy enough to walk miles upon miles though hilly country sides and unstable paths in the cities. I was warned that they can cause blisters until you get the straps just right for your feet, so I made sure to wear these a few hours at the end of the day (as we were walking to dinner and back) to break them in. I wore them almost every day of our 13 day adventure. I highly recommend for traveling!

I love these! They are tight at first but the more you wear them the better they get. I have worn them all summer.

This is a very nice shoe. It took a couple of wearings for me to get used to feeling the strap connecting at the outside of the heel. Now I barely notice it. It is VERY sturdy and well made, and really comfortable, with a secure fit - the shoe doesn't slide around on my foot as I walk. I'll certainly buy another pair when it comes time to replace these, although I don't expect that to be anytime soon. I would recommend this shoe to anyone looking for a comfortable and well made sandal.

Cute shoe with great arch support. I wish there was more cushion at the ball of the foot as it has less than my Merrell's. I noticed this while walking the airports while traveling. Otherwise, I'm happy with the shoe. It's a great shoe for spring, summer, and fall.

I was so excited for these to arrive and I really wanted to love them, but they were way too big. I am almost always a size 10 and don't normally have an issue so that was a disappointment. They also seemed flimsier than other Chacos. Oh well, they went back and I bought a different style of Chacos.

Like many others, I wanted to love this shoe. The foot bed is awesome, but the straps would tighten as I walked, while the strap with the fastener would loosen. I tried adjusting, and it still didn't matter. They continues to tighten as I walked. I am so pleased with Zappos customer service, quick, and friendly. No problems with returning, ever!!!

This is my first pair of Chacos and after some consultation with friends that own the brand, I knew what I was getting into. These aren't going to be comfortable right off the bat. In fact, they might be miserable. They're snug, but not enough that I would need a wide. After some getting used to, they will eventually form to your feet and the straps will loosen up. I wore them around the house for about a day to work them out, and now they're great! I love the color which was what drew me to them in the first place! I received a pair that had some damage to the strap and customer service exchanged them via chat in an instant. Top notch service at Zappos!

These are great sandals. The only complaint I have is actuall a design flaw in my opinion. They should have made the heel strap adjustable. Mine is loose but I deal with it. It's the only Chaco that's narrow enough for my feet. (Aside from the heel of course.)

I bought these to replace a pair of Chaco's I bought in 2006. I was worried when I realized the soles are no longer made by Vibram, but these feel just as comfortable as my old pair! I love the arch support - I can wear them for long distances and long hours and they support as well as athletic shoes. Love them and would highly recommend! They do run small though - I typically wear an 8.5, but had to buy a 10 to get enough length in this shoe.

I also tried the Chaco Z/1 pro. These were mildly better in that I could get my foot under the arch strap. There is no adjustment in either the toe or arch straps. The toe straps on the left shoe were an inch longer (I could slide my hand under them) then straps on right, and my left is my bigger foot. Also I think the heel strap would have eventually slipped down. Appear to have good arch support. They are very heavy sandals. No adjustments? Really?

Runs small. No adjustment in arch and toes straps. I could not get my flat foot under the arch strap. So could not even try it on.
