I was unable to adjust the straps on one of the shoes to get a good fit. The other one was fine and comfortable. I returned these.

I found the straps to be much easier to adjust than I expected--just be patient and follow the included directions! Also, very comfortable--I wore them on vacation where we did a lot of walking and my feet felt great. Usually I have to wear running shoes all summer because my feet hurt, so these were a welcome replacement! I love the brown color too!

Love the new sandals! It took a little while to get them adjusted properly and I had to trim the black flap because it was dragging on the ground. I was worried about the toe wrap but love the fit.

I went shopping yesterday looking for comfortable sandals to wear on an upcoming vacation. I tried on many pairs of Chacos (the best arch support I was told) and found that I needed a full size smaller than I usually wear. After trying to find the color I loved (turquoise) and having no success, I came home and looked online. I found my color and size at Zappos. I ordered them yesterday afternoon and am wearing them this morning! UPS delivered them to my door at 10:00 a.m.! When I am familiar the brand of shoe, I usually order from Zappos. Customer Service cannot be beaten. But I was glad I tried on the Chacos because I did not know they ran large. I order online quite frequently (once or twice/week) and no one can beat Zappos for speedy delivery! I am a customer for life!

After much research on Chacos and hearing wonderful reviews from friends and reviewers online, I decided to go for the ZX/2 Vibram Yampa model for a couple of reasons: 1) These are lighter than the unaweep model 2) The double strap allows you to wear the sandal with more formal attire -- They do have a really high arch which took a week to get used to (since all of my other shoes don't have any support) but they've molded to the shape of my feet and they are quite wonderful! The only thing I would warn against is that unless you have really narrow feet, you might actually want to get the wide size.

I'm a huge fan of Chacos, but I will say that if you plan on wearing them on a semi-daily basis as well as using them for a more sports/outdoor purpose, the sole will wear out quickly. I have owned them for just shy of ten months and the bottoms have worn through. Great shoe, just might want to consider the Unaweep sole instead (from the Chaco line).

Great sandals. I have very flat feet, and the arch support is remarkable (although it takes a little getting used to). It took quite a bit of patience to get the straps adjusted, but after that it was all good.

First and foremost, I bought these shoes because they are labeled as vegan. I wanted them for two purposes: 1) to wear while walking miles and miles in our nation's capitol during the cherry blossom festival. It was hot out and I wanted to my feet to be able to breathe. The first day I didn't quite get the straps right and I didn't get my big toe enough space and almost got a blister. I kept adjusting them and by day two they were fitting with little adjustments here and there... by day three they were perfect. I've had them about a month now. Some reviewers say once you find the magic spot you never have to tough the straps again... when my feet swell depending on the temperature, so I have to adjust them from time to time... but I know enough about how the straps work by this point that it's not a problem. 2) I also bought them with rugged hiking in mind over the summer and I think they'll be great for that. My feet really stay put in them and they have a nice tread. I'm very happy with my purchase.

I purchased these hiking sandals about 5 years ago and wore them out so I knew I wanted another pair. This sandal isn't as heavy duty as the first, but the fit is exactly the same. It has good arch support, a must for me. I can wear these on a hike, a walk, with pants or with a skirt, so I've worn these almost exclusively in travel to other countries.

I love these sandals. It was a bit of a pain to get the straps to cooperate, but the initial difficulty wasn't terrible considering how happy I am with the product.

I have a pair of Chacos that I have driven, hiked, walked in for over four years, the only reason I am buying a new pair is my pup loved my Chacos too and ate them! I will get my old ones repaired...but why not get a second, possibly third pair?! Best most clever sandal on the market!

I had bought these after a long time search for a sandal that would work with severe over-pronation. They are very supportive and correct my over-pronating as I walk. They do take some getting used to but I look forward to the summer when I get to wear them daily.

I have 4 different pairs of Chacos, and love them all! The Yampas are great, since they are lighter than the previous Chacos. Something to keep in mind if these are your first pair: Chacos are often uncomfortable for a while while your feet adjust to having so much arch support. It can take a week or two to get used to them and for the straps to adjust properly to your feet (yes, they do some adjusting on their own...this is good).

Difficult to adjust at first, but reading the directions and wearing them to allow them to stretch out helped! Overall, amazingly comfortable!

I would give Zappos 10 stars for their awesome service. The shoes came the very next day I ordered them. Beyond awesome! The shoes were just what I wanted but did have to be broken in. Left a huge blister on my foot.

I'm hesitant to strongly recommend this pair of sandals, because while they're quite pretty and and the footbed is well constructed, the straps have been annoying. I found that problems other reviewers have mentioned, such as needing to readjust the straps frequently (prior to putting them on, because otherwise it's very difficult and uncomfortable), blisters, and strangulation of one's big toe, ended up happening to me. All in all, I'm staying with this pair of sandals because they are rather practical, they look pretty, and they give good support for my ridiculously high arches that a comparable sandal (Keen's Naples) didn't. I'm hoping that they'll wear in a little bit and then the straps won't tear at the skin of my feet so much. While I didn't have a lot of blisters, there was one that developed on my big toe, and when I take the sandals off after a long day of walking I can clearly see the imprints of the straps in my skin (which might be more of a fitting issue, but...). One reviewer mentioned an awkward bit in the back of the sole, which something that I noticed at first, but like her after some wearing in it stopped being annoying. All in all, they're pretty, practically constructed, and deliciously rugged-looking, but there are some slight inconveniences worth bearing in mind. I feel like there might be more comfortable and stylish alternatives, so unless you need a rugged sandal I'd think about these with a grain of salt!

I love Chacos because they give excellent arch support. These you have to work the laces every now and than because they will readjust and squeeze your big toe but other than that I love them. Very comfortable.

This design has taken me 3 weeks to get used to. Every time I put the sandals on, I have to adjust the straps. My big toes feel constantly strangled. The directions that came with the shoes were helpful, but not adequate. Once adjusted, they were a decent sandal for walking, and they seem very sturdy. The sole is formed with some arch support, but this may not be enough for everyone's comfort. For the price of these sandals, you could buy two pairs of a sandal that is less complicated and more comfortable.

I wanted to like these sandals. I took them to Europe and was disappointed to find a persistent "strangling" of each of my big toes as the straps self adjusted.

Can't comment on how comfortable it is, but I have big feet and these clunky shoes make them even bigger. My search continues for comfortable walking shoes.

I really wanted to love these shoes, but they just didn't fit my foot right. The foot bed was very uncomfortable in the heel area. I had tried on a pair at a store and then ordered a wide from Zappos thinking that might help. I loved the purple/pink color and the adjustable straps were super comfortable. I wish they would have worked for me!

I like the style of this sandal and the idea of being able to adjust the straps to fit my narrow foot. I tried but just can't get the straps to adjust comfortably for me. I really wanted these to work for me; unfortunately I will be sending them back. Zappos is the only place I will shop for shoes. They have outstanding customer service!
