These are quite possibly the most uncomfortable shoes I've worn. The sole is hard and nonconforming. The arch is too high and the sides are constraining. The only upside is they look good and have good grip. Beauty is pain when it comes to these Chacos.

These were super supportive and comfortable but just too ugly. The sole is thick and wide and bulky. Nothing pretty or feminine about it. Sorry to say they are going back and I am still looking for something pretty with good arch support.

I'm so disappointed in this shoe. The toe part cuts off the circulation in my toe. I'm constantly having to make it looser. I hate them! I finally flattened the toe part and wear them like that which isn't comfortable either because it makes too much room in the front and they flap and it hurts the bottom of my toe. Too much money to just throw them away, but have seriously considered giving them away. Also, they're really hard. I haven't found anything about this shoe that is comfortable. Oh, I forget to mention that I let the sales person talk me into getting the narrow one because they didn't have wide.

From the time that I placed the order to the time these sandals were delivered, less than 24 hours elapsed. That's with the standard free shipping! For that alone Zappos is awesome! I've had Chacos before, but they did not have the toe loop so I wasn't sure how I would like these. The toe loop makes the sandals more secure, and I have no problem with it. The double straps make them slightly cuter, although I definitely didn't order Chacos for their fashionability. They're super comfy and the pattern is fun. I usually wear an 8 in tennis shoes and 7.5 in heels, and I ordered a 7 in the Chacos. Perfect fit. I have a narrow foot, and the regular width was fine. Great buy and EXCELLENT SERVICE!

I usually wear a 7 1/2 Narrow or AA, and I ordered the 7 (only comes in Medium) b/c the straps are adjustable for width. They fit quite well. After adjustments, the buckle strap is a little long and needs to be shortened, but the overall fit is great!

This sandal is perfect! I love the style, and the support is great. It is, however, a little tough to adjust the straps, but it gets easier after you first move them. An overall awesome shoe.

I bought these to go hiking in wet gorges with the hopes that they would support my foot while slimy. Maybe I should not review until I actually do this activity but.... I tried them on to make sure they were comfy and I have worn them almost everyday since, on the street and on trails. They were comfortable from the get go, are excellent on rough terrain, and they look pretty good on the foot too. Had I known they came in different colors, I might not have bought black but I didn't know (why is that, zappo's?). Anyway I can't say anything bad about these sandals - they are great. Well, except one thing: They are very well fit and snug because of the strap construction so when a little stone slips in-between the shoe's foot-bed and my soul, it must be removed manually; it cannot just be shaken out. I guess that's a small price to pay for great hiking shoes.

Chacos Yampa Fiesta are wonderful! Bought a wide and they fit my daughter's wide, thick foot perfectly. The straps were tight at first but she loosened them according to the enclosed instructions & wore them a few times and now they fit great!

I wear these all summer long. I can walk all day in them. You have to be okay with the toe strap. Sometimes that can annoy me a little, but a quick readjustment, and they're fine again. Still one of my favorite shoes ever. It's all I brought to a recent trip to Thailand and could walk all day in them. I usually wear 8.5 and the 8 is perfect.

My second pair of Chacos. My first finally bit the dust after 8 YEARS of rock-climbing, hiking, and general living. The first pair I had bought on sale, and they were the single strap w/ toe loop. This time I decided to splurge and pay full price (something I rarely ever do)for another pair. I can say that I felt comfortable paying the full retail price for a pair of Chacos, because I knew I wouldn't be disappointed. And I wasn't! I LOVE these new double strap Chacos and I look forward to several more years of fun in them! I wear a 9.5 in a running shoe and a 9 in sandals. Chacos I run a 9 in, if this helps anyone with figuring out how Chaco sizing runs. If you have any doubts, know that Chaco is worth the investment. They last years, and are the most comfortable pair of sandals you will ever own.

Brands I'd also recommend: Anhu, merrel, teva, dansko, brooks, marmot, mountain hardware

Love these sandals! They have the best arch support. My only problem with them is it is tight around my toe. You can adjust the ribbon but as you walk it tighten it back up. I wondered if I bought a wider width if that would help, but I couldn't stop wearing them to exchange them!

I originally went into my local store to figure out what size I am since I'm usually a half size and they told me to go with the larger of the two. I'm definitely glad I did because they fit perfect! I have narrow feet so I was afraid they would be too big on me but they're perfect! They're super versatile and can go from wearing them on hikes to around school! They're comfortable and once you get them adjusted right they're perfect! The only negative to them was that the strap drags on the ground a little bit because I have them adjusted so tight but it's not a huge deal. The fiesta color is super cute too and free 1 day shipping within the Zappos app was fantastic!

These shoes work very well for me. They support my arches, and my feet did not hurt after an entire day of wearing them shopping. I have tries other shoes that did not hit my arch in the right spot, and had to send those back. They are more stylish than many I tried, also.

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 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.

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.

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!
