I tried several of the Chaco sandal models - the one strap with the toe strap, the two strap without the toe strap, and this one. This one wins. Although many people say that it cuts off the circulation in their toe, I haven't had this problem. But it is necessary to spend some time adjusting the straps and breaking them in. I usually wear a 7.5 wide and the 7 wide fits perfectly. I got them for a long trip and I'm confident that after a short break-in, they will be perfect!

Very frustrating straps and the shoe is uncomfortable overall. I will be returning them.

I absolutely love these sandals. I wear them everywhere: working at the library, walking the trails, and going kayaking, and I have become a loyal Chaco fan. I normally wear a 6.5 in other shoes, but I ordered the 6 wide and they are perfect. I highly recommend.

I love them! I'm really cheap so I didn't want to buy this shoe for the high price. I'm so happy I did they have the support of a tennis shoe with the freeness of a sandal. I am also very hard on shoes but I have a feeling these will last for a long time. I get several compliments on my shoes all the time. I have a wide and flat size 11 shoe and it fits amazing. There is a little wiggle room if your feet are longer. Overall I recommend this shoe, several of my friends are now buying Chacos!

I didn't even try both shoes as the right one alone was so uncomfortable that I packed the box back up & will return them today. The sole/foot bed is stiff & inflexible & the multiple straps are very awkward & simply don't work for me. Obviously I didn't pay sufficient attention to previous reviews. In favor of the shoe, I must say that the arch support is great but since the rest of the shoe is so uncomfortable, back it goes.

I just got these today, told me I was going to have to wait four to five business days and they came two days later. I love them. I cannot really find out how to get the straps to loosen up but they are perfect for me.

Zappos is the best company to work with. I ordered some sandals and bought the wrong size. Their customer service was so understanding. They shipped me another pair, express shipping, before I had even returned the ones that were the wrong size. Love the sandals and I will use Zappos for other purchases.

LOVE LOVE LOVE these shoes, they are like a warm hug for your feet. Supportive and sturdy shoes. Well made and quality is superb. I have wide feet and these are perfect for my "Fred Flintstone toes". Seriously though I would highly recommend this shoe for an all terrain walk. This shoe will last and will support your feet. So glad I finally decided to buy these shoes. But Zappos makes it so easy for you if you change your mind. Love Zappos, don't shop anywhere else now for my shoes.

Love Chaco sandals. They are the only footwear I am able to wear since having plates and pins put in my feet. I stand for 14 hours a day and my feet never hurt wearing them. The arch support and the antiroll heal are superior to all other sandals.

So terribly disappointed with these sandals. the straps tighten when you walk and strangle the big toe. I have to spend quite a bit of time pulling and loosening up the straps just right to make them comfortable and as soon as u start to walk around in them, the straps move and tighen up around the toe where it make the big toe numb.

Love the shoes. They were a birthday gift. Had to figure out how to adjust the straps but their perfect now. Zappos was great. My mom ordered the wrong size because other reviews suggested they ran big and they were too small! Zappos had the correct size delivered the next day!

The width of these shoes was perfect however my big toe was a tight fit in the shoe. It could be that I didn't know how to loosen up the straps correctly but I gave it all I had and tried adjusting several ways and it just felt too tight no matter what I did. Again, I get a Wide Width shoe and the width was perfect just make sure you have skinny toes.

Great shoes. They were comfortable and fit perfectly the first time I wore them. All you have to do is adjust the straps and go. Great for running errands and when it is raining. I wear a size 8 and the 8 was perfect.

These would probably have been great athletic/active sandals but for the insole. Every time I took a step, the bottom of my big toe would rub against the bumpy insole and I KNEW that this would quickly change from a slight distraction/discomfort to genuine discomfort if not a blister. I returned them immediately after trying them on.

I've had my ZX2 chacos for about 6 months now. The first day or two of wearing them was a little uncomfortable, but once I broke them in I am in love. I wear them nearly everyday to school, hiking, around the house, anywhere. These are the only shoes I have wore almost everyday since I've gotten them. They can be expensive but TOTALLY worth the investment. I have heard of people having their pair for 10 years and not a scratch on them. As for this pair, it took me a few months to get the adjustments on the straps the way I wanted to but they never gave me blisters or anything. I wear a size 9, and it fits perfectly. As for the toe loop, some people say it can be restricting but I don't have a problem with it. It is the matter of adjusting it so it isn't constricting your toe. I give these shoes an A+ and I will definitely be buying more pairs in the future.

These ZX/2s are for my 14-year old daughter. We have fiddled with straps so many times, but since she isn't wearing them I think they're still not comfortable. She got them for a school trip but I see she left at home. Sigh. I returned a pair for myself because the toe loops felt horrible and the texture of the foot bed bothered the pads of my toes. I did like the contours of the foot bed and felt like my heel was stable. Chaco sandals seem like they'd hold up better than Tevas, but I think I'd have to turn my feet into calluses before I could comfortably wear them. And who wants to wear sandals with (split toe) socks in the summer?

Brands I'd also recommend: Teva

I've never worn Chaco's before, so was a little skeptical. However, I found I really like them. Great arch support, and very comfortable. It takes a bit to get the straps just right, and you have to adjust them a lot, but otherwise, they are great. I'm a believer!

I ordered these to replace a pair of well worn/well loved Teva's. I love the ability to adjust the straps to fit my feet but the heel cups were too narrow for me and could feel the heel strap cutting into my foot. Even if the heel fit was better, I think the soles are little too clunky. Sending them back and giving Teva's another look.

Brands I'd also recommend: Teva original and hurricane

I bought this shoe to give me a little more support than flip flops. My feet are true to size, so I've never had a problem with shoe straps being too tight. The cross foot, and cross toe straps on this shoe were so tight, I couldn't even get my foot inside the actual shoe to properly try them on. They were very tight, and generally felt harsh on my skin. I love the idea of these sandals, but they were brutal on my poor feet.

This is my third purchase of Chaco's and I will be purchasing a fourth pretty soon. There isn't enough room for me to type how much I love these shoes. I bought my first pair in 2008, before they were cool, and have worn them every summer since then. After many washes in washing machine, they still look brand new.

Brands I'd also recommend: None, Chaco's are the best.

The length of the shoes fit well. I have flat feet and the distance between the two back straps near the ankle on the footbed rubbed against the side of my foot (arch side). The multiple straps while stylish, made for some difficulty to get the shoe on easily. I typically have a medium width - not this time.

These shoes felt amazing. Too bad the toe loop is meant for a really wide big toe. I had to return them because of this. Very disappointing.

Worst sandal ever. Sorry Chaco. Why would anyone spend that much time trying -- and not successfully -- to get the straps adjusted? Very frustrating. And super unattractive on a fairly narrow foot. I wished they had worked. I loved the colors.

I have planter fasciitis, and have been unable to find a sandal that would help the pain in my heel until now. This sandal is awesome! My heel felt so good when I walked. So why a 3 star, you ask? My toes were nowhere near the front of the foot bed. I have skis for feet, and I have always worn a size 11, but in this shoe I had a full inch of space between my toe and the edge. I am going to exchange them for a size 10 and hope for the best because they felt so good on my heel.

I REALLY wanted to love these. My first pair of Chacos, but they just don't work on my feet. I have really flat feet, and I can't get the straps tight enough; given where the stitching is, I'm left with slack at the ankle. Unfortunately, these will be going back.

I love these shoes, my only complaint would be that as a walk I feel like the straps get tighter and tighter around my big toe, and find that very uncomfortable, so about 2-3 times a day I have to readjust the straps. Other than that I really do love the style.
