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.

Last summer I ordered three styles of the Chaco sandals and had to return all. There wasn't enough strap around the ankle, and the straps that went over the little toes on the Chaco Yampa were very tight, as were the straps around large toes. My normal size turned out to be very big so go down one size when ordering. Very disappointing as the foot bed was very comfortable and they looked great. If Chaco gave a bit more strap in these sandals I'd be buying them.

Very comfortable. I particularly like the adjustable straps.I have problems finding sandals that are not too loose as I do not have a high instep.Only complaint is after tightening shoe I have too much strap hanging over. May need to cut it off and restitch the end.

I bought these for my teenage daughter and was very reluctant to spend this much on sandals. However, she absolutely loves them and wears them constantly. She says they are extremely comfortable and true to size. She did not have issues with the straps as other reviewers stated. They are a little long but not a problem. Good investment!

Great sandals. Believe what you hear about them making your feet smell badly, though. They do. Wash the inside out often.

Love Chacos but the tightening around the toe is a mess. Have to keep adjusting at least once a day, sometimes two. Like other style better but Chaco is only sandal I can always wear without pain from plantar fasciitis. Love them.

I have Chaco flip flops and love them! I wanted a pair of their sandals with a heel strap. It pains me to return these. I bought these in addition to the single-strap. These are very difficult to tighten and loosen...much more so than the single strap. They were very comfortable and had great arch support, but I couldn't break out in to a sweat every time I put them on or took them off so, sadly, they are going back.

These are pretty great sandals overall. If you have narrower feet, they will be great. I love the adjustability of the straps. I love the arch support. I love the way they look. I do not love the width. Toe box is fine, but the bottom two thirds of the sandal are just very narrow. The side of my foot hangs over a bit and the heel stabilizers dig painfully into my feet. (And I was sized originally in a store but when they didn't have the style that I was looking for I ordered online. The size up from this one was definitely too big.) I suspect that a big part of the problem is the lack of half sizes. Too bad. I love almost everything about these sandals, but the fact that their "wide" sandal isn't wide is a serious problem.

I LOVE MY CHACO'S! I have children in summer camp and have always considered these sandals to be the "camp uniform" shoes they certainly are, but nothing more. My daughter convinced me to get my own pair this year and I am a believer! (The cute new colors didn't hurt in my decision!) I didn't find the adjustment process as troublesome as some. In fact, I like that the shoes can be adjusted to fit snugly whether my feet are rested or a little swollen from a long day's walk. They have to be the most comfortable shoes I own. Particularly after a month of wear, the soles began to mold to mine and they fit like a glove! By the way, I have a somewhat wide foot but bought the medium after trying both widths.

Took the advice of others and sized down (I usually wear a 9.5 and bought a 9, which fit great). Adjusting the straps to fit your feet at first is a pain, but they did fit great. The toe hole does get tighter throughout the course of the day, but my friend said you can send them to Chaco and they will fit the sandals with a piece to prevent that (it's not so bothersome though, I doubt I will). I wore them for 5 straight days at Bonnarroo with only minimal soreness from a spot that rubbed by the plastic strap connector at the inner foot, but considering how much walking/dancing I did, I'd call that a success.

I love these Chacos! At first they were a little hard to break in, but after a week or so they're super comfy. The straps are a bit more of a challenge to adjust than the single straps. But overall, they're great!

As always exceeded my expectations. Shoes were perfect. Delivery was quicker than stated. perfect. Love the Chacos. It's very difficult to find my size in a retail store and online seems to be my only choice!

Brands I'd also recommend: only this brand - it's very unique.

Easily adjustable. I have very narrow feet and was able to get them tight enough, but then I cut the extra strap off and sealed it by lighting a match and letting it singe the ends to prevent it from unraveling.

I have never written a shoe review before. Just didn't want to take the time. But want to regarding Chacos. What a great shoe. I have discovered after having some major back spasms, that I cannot wear really flat sandals nor high heels as they both cause back spasms. So I looked at shoes, reviews, trying to find that "right sandal" to help this problem at the same time I needed a good fit for my long narrow foot. I wear an 11 Slim in a ladies shoe. I have since purchased two pair of Chacos and will probably get a 3rd. Expensive in one way...but so worth it! The support is like no other shoe I've ever worn, as far as a sandal goes. I purchased this style as your foot stays totally planted no matter where you are walking. I can be out on my hilly yard working and have no problems with my back afterwards, I can vacuum and have no problems with my back. I can wash them off in the sink or with the hose, let them dry (which doesn't take long!) and then wear them to work with capris or a short casual skirt or out and about with shorts. They feel heavenly on my feet. As far as adjusting...just work at it until you get it right. Once you do, then you don't have to adjust again! There are plenty of you tube videos out there to walk you through the adjustment process that first time. It took me a few times but then I got it! Just watch the videos! These are worth every penny!

Thought these ran narrow...bottom of foot kept "stepping on" where the straps came out of foot bed. Arch was good. Straps just too much work for me. Going back to Teva.

I received excellent service from Zappos. I ordered five pairs of sandals, all came within days of placing my order! One pair did not fit and the return was easy, I printed a pre-paid return label, dropped it off at a UPS store and my full refund was back in my account within days. Also, with their return policy you have 365 days to do it! I know of no other company with a policy like that. I am totally pleased with this company, their customer service, and quality of merchandise.

I was so disappointed. My sister hikes, camps, etc. in these all summer. I thought they were very uncomfortable and unflattering. I have flat feet and love a high arch support as in Dansko clogs, but these were just huge and in the wrong place. My normal feet looked fat and ugly. I also wish Chacos had half sizes available. Perhaps that was my issue. Going with Keens, instead (and order up a half size with Keens!).

I bought these sandals for my 16 year old granddaughter, at her request. She loves them. Pulling the rope, and getting them to fit right was a bit of a chore, but after they were fixed right, she wears them everyday! I have to give them a 5 star because she loves them, and finds them very comfortable.

Great kids summer shoe. Very durable, virtually indestructible. Comfortable once you figure out the straps (read the directions on the box to get there quickly - we fumbled with the straps for a week before we saw them). Very pricey for a sandal but I do believe the straps have a lifetime warranty.

Love these sandals! This is my first pair of Chaco's and I couldn't be happier. They did take a few tries to get the straps adjusted, but once I did they fit perfect. The more I wear them, the more comfortable they get. This was an excellent purchase and as always Zappos is amazing!

Well, I just ordered my first pair of Chacos! I was so stressed out about what size I needed because I am a true 9.5 after going back and forth I got a 9. They fit just perfect. I don't have wide or narrow feet so I got medium width and they feel good, I even was contemplating if I needed a wide or not but since they didn't have a 9W fiesta in stock I decided to keep the 9M. I love them, I love the fit and the comfort (I have super flat feet so this is a wonderful change). I recommend these shoes to any and everyone they are awesome!
