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 initially hesitated to buy Chacos, because I heard they were difficult to adjust. Once I got that down, it wasn't so bad. I love these sandals. They have excellent support for outdoor activities. Plus they are more stylish than other river sandals. I tried the Chacos without the big toe straps and felt like my toes were too unprotected. BTW if you are between sizes, I would opt for the smaller size, or else you might run out of strap length for tightening purposes. I love my Chacos! They survived the mighty Zambezi and the bush, I expect them to last for a while.

This is my second pair of Chaco Yampas, and I absolutely love them. Finding them on sale was an added bonus, but I would have bought them anyway because of the color. I went down 2 whole sizes from my NB tennis shoes (from an 11 to a 9), and they fit perfectly. Since I have very narrow feet, I had to pull the straps as tight as they would go and have them shortened to keep them from flapping around my heels. Not a problem. These sandals are the first pair I have ever had that fit my narrow feet so well and feel wonderful all day. If the weather is warm, I am wearing these shoes.

Brands I'd also recommend: I've have no other sandal brands to recommend since none have ever fit me this well.

Love these shoes. They look cool, and they're perfect for walking, light hiking and/or lots of time spent on your feet. Plus, they're easy to clean (wear them in the shower) and easy to adjust (once you get used to the strap system). My new favorite warm weather utility sandals.

Super comfy; really appreciate the ability to fully adjust fit; my only problem - wore them to wade in Adriatic Sea & as the salt water dried, the straps got stiff & caused a blister - should have thought that one out in advance. Once washed, however, they were back to terrific & comfortable. Love them!

It really takes time to adjust and re-adjust at first. Be patient, as they are worth it! They provide superior arch support, and metatarsal support as well for total foot comfort. All this and more femininity in an athletic shoe than anything out there!

I bought these to replace my last pair of Chacos (plain black single strap) that my dog ate. I used my old pair for work as a river guide. When I got these, I thought they were just too adorable for getting muddy and torn up, so now I consider these my fancy Chacos. I am so glad I had a back-up pair of work shoes. I am just hoping no one in town buy these!

These shoes rock...be patient with the strap adjusting (and read the adjustment directions/instructions) if these are your first pair. I had slight discomfort on the outer side of the back/heel the first day or two from rubbing against the raised part of the sole, but then they were fine. Also, a big shout out to Zappos for free shipping and upgrade to free one day shipping. Thanks!

I love these Chacos. I had regular width older generation Chacos that I intended to continue wearing, but after wearing my wide width ones, I'll never go back! Great colors, style and fit.

These are beautiful, comfortable sandals. I can walk for miles in them with no heel pain (I have a tendency to develop plantar fasciitis). Usual excellent Chaco quality. I have several pairs.

I have been the satisfied owner of a pair of Chaco ZX/2s for the past two years and have literally walked and hiked hundreds of miles in them across several countries, both comfortably and enjoyably. It wasn't until about a month ago that I literally wore through the soles of my Chacos that I realized how much walking I'd done in them...what a great investment! And now I'm ordering another pair to make sure that my outdoor adventures don't have to be put on hold. Love my Chacos!

Such a comfortable shoe! I wasn't sure if I would like it - it looked really clunky and 'earthy' - but it is great! I'm pretty sure I'll be able to walk around in these all day on my upcoming vacation.

Chacos are great. No better sandal. Great arch support, comfortable, and extremely durable. I did, however, realize after a few years of wearing a 9 Wide that they were too long and bought 8 Wide. I have worn them all summer (without tripping over my own feet).

I love my Chacos. They are extremely comfortable, I love the bright colors, and best of all they came in a size 12, which believe me, can be hard to find in a shoe I really want. I wore them on a hike earlier in the week, and they were comfortable, supportive, and springy. I have two pairs of Chacos, and will be getting more, since where I live, I can wear them all year.

Best sandals ever! I now own 2 pairs of Chaco sandals and they are all I wear to work. I am on my feet, on concrete and hard wood floors, all day at work and these are wonderful for my feet. Upon first wearing them the straps will self-adjust as you wear them through the day, but if you wear them to a beach or a place where dirt can get in the strap holes they don't budge. So after my recent trip to Myrtle Beach they are good! Just give them time and don't give up on them.

I have had plantar fasciitis and I have to be very careful about the shoes I wear. I wore this right out of the box to a family reunion. I was standing all day and they felt great. At the end of the day the strap around the toe was getting a little uncomfortable. I was very satisfied and got many compliments.

This is my 2nd pair of this style of Chacos. I had my other pair for almost 3 years, which I had bought for a 4 month trip to Italy, where we did a ton of walking. The great thing is that all the straps are adjustable, so you can really fit it to your foot. At the end of a long day of walking or standing, my feet swell, so I have to adjust them for that. They are really cute and stylish, and have great support. I know people who use them hiking with big packs. I have knee and feet issues, and have trouble finding shoes that don't bother either, and these don't, hence my 2nd pair. I usually wear a 7 1/2, but the 7 fits me perfectly.

Loved the sandals but do spend time adjusting them as directed, otherwise the fit will be frustrating. Once I adjusted the straps correctly, they are comfortable and I will use them for light hiking etc. in Canada this summer.

This is my third pair of the exact same style of Chacos. I bought my first ones while trekking throughout Europe, and my father-in-law just brought me my newest replacement pair. I was having some incredible plantar fasciitis issues on my left foot. I'd ordered 2 different night splints and The Strassburg Sock and I'd done acupuncture and cupping (not recommended), but nothing helped my feet as much as just putting on my Chacos. In about a week, my feet have gone back to normal. I just wish wish wish that Zappos delivered internationally.

I absolutely love Chacos! I purchased Chaco sandals after always trying to find sandals with arch support. Now that I own the ZX/2 Yampa in black this is basically the only sandal I will be wearing this summer and every summer to come. I usually wear a 9.5-10 in normal shoes but with Chaco I found that I have to size down to a 9. I love the ZX straps because they add a feminine flair. You can't go wrong with Chaco!

I got these in the Fiesta color, and I have been so happy with them. I overpronate and have fallen arches, and these shoes have done wonders for my feet and back. I think the Fiesta color is even cuter than the zappos picture suggests, and they go with pretty much anything. I highly recommend this shoe to anyone who needs arch support, and even to those who don't need arch support.
