Chaco should have never changed the original Hipthong design. The inner cross straps are no longer adjustable and they are too tight on the arch! Boo Chaco!

Chaco has redesigned the Hipthong (Hipthong two) and not for the better. The bigger webbing and thong part of the sandal was never adjustable, but the part that criss-crosses over your foot was. The webbing used to slide thru the footbed to be able to adjust the straps. They got rid of that feature on the hipthong two and replaced the crisscross straps with elastic. Having narrow feet the shoes no longer fit well and are too stretchy and flip flop like feeling. Boo, Chaco, you ruined a good thing.

I absolutely love these sandals! They have great arch support and are surprisingly more comfortable than you would expect! I had to order a size up because the straps that you cannot loosen are pretty snug! Overall, I am so happy with these; I even went back and got them in the Caribbean blue!

Love these sandals! I have very flat feet so good arch support is crucial for me! I can't wear regular flip flops because of the lack of support, so I love that this style is pretty close to a flip flop. Also, these sandals can be dressed up or down!

Not the most fashionable shoe, but extremely comfortable. Great support. I was concerned about the change of the adjustable straps, but the new style fits my foot fine. I wear 8.5 and the size 9 is perfect. As usual, Zappos service is superb.

This is my fourth pair of Chacos. My second pair in this style. The straps are easy to adjust and the fit is perfect. They have great arch support and do not require breaking in.

These flip flops are great. Stay on feet well and are comfortable. They do run a little short, however. I suggest buying a 1/2 size up rather than down if you wear a half size. I wear a Keen sandal size 8.5. I originally ordered this in an 8 - had to return shoe for a size 9. The 9 fits perfectly.

Loved the design idea: quick slip-on w/ more sturdy, secure fit. Even with this benefit, thong strap still puts too much pressure on my arthritic toes.

I got these based on the reviews, I have very narrow skinny feet and it's hard to find shoes, especially flip-flops, that are snug and not too loose. I really like these for that reason, I can pull the straps as tight as I need to to keep them on my feet.

Great sandals. They took some breaking in and some time getting used to the fit but in the end you have a wonderful sandal that stays on your foot. I will buy more.

More arch support than a regular flip, more foot freedom than the regular Chaco's, it is a perfect blend between the two. I don't walk for any distance in a flip because they are too unstable but this has the adjustable strap across the arch that keeps it securely on my foot. Extremely comfortable and very stylish for what it is.

I just received these (and two other styles) and I really liked them. Unfortunately they are a tad too narrow in the forefoot. I have a bit of a bunion forming, and I think that this is why. That being said, I don't normally have width issues. Other than this issue, the arch feels great and the straps gave me a custom fit. I am exchanging for unaweeps in wide.

Returned this shoe as I found the footbed to be too hard for my severe bunions. I usually wear an 8.5 and the size 9 fit fine. Loved the arch support and heel cup but again, the footbed was not soft enough for me. Also, I have narrower feet and I was able to adjust the fit. If you have wider feet, I think these would be too tight! Loved the style so I am disappointed to need to return them.

I wanted a flip flop that felt sturdy and this is it. Granted, the straps keep it tight enough on your foot that there's not really any flipping or flopping, if you're into that sort of thing. The straps that go between your toes are pretty loose on my foot and are not adjustable. The criss cross straps are adjustable and keep the sandal securely on your foot. It does take a little getting used to. I did initially buy the men's version because the straps are a little wider and I preferred the way they look. But the men's sizes were too wide for a female foot. Overall, I love these sandals.

I was looking to replace my Wrapsody and thought this might so the trick. I am a 7.5 and the length on this was OK. The problem was the wide toe strap. It rubbed the space between my toes. The stretchy adjustment straps are a nice feature. Wish they worked.

I have the Chaco shoes I purchased last fall and love them. I have arch problems and they work for me. So I decided to try the sandal for the summer. I liked the ideal of the strap going through the toes so the strap wouldn't be too tight around my toe. But the straps are too tight on top of the foot. Too bad because the arch is great support. I had to return them.

I will never buy a Chaco brand shoe again. Although I believe I got the correct size it did not fit my foot in a straight plane. Also there is no adjustment even though there looks like there could be on the side. When I tried to adjust the strap it threw the straight plane of the shoe off even more due to the way the shoe is manufactured. Because of the design I would not recommend this sandal and would say do not buy this shoe! Zappos offers at a good price but the brand is not for me.

Sadly, I am returning these. I had my first pair of Chaco Hipthongs for three years. I put thousands of miles on them. Last week the bottom cracked in two. I had heard that the newer version wasn't the same as the old, but I loved my first pair and decided to take a chance on these. Although they look very similar, the new version has stretch fabric for the straps and the straps no longer go through the footbed for adjustability. These two features make the shoe both too tight and too flip-floppy for me.

Chaco! What have you done? One of the best features of Chacos is that the straps can be pulled through the footbed to accommodate different sizes/shapes of feet. The straps on this sandal don't move! Why, why, why lose such a wonderful feature? These are going back.

I am so disappointed with this shoe! I have been wearing Chaco sandals for a long time and this style is the one I usually buy because it fits and feels the best to me. However, they seem to have changed the straps. I can't adjust the straps to loosen them across the foot and they are a bit too tight. I don't know why they did this but I hope they change them back! I am returning this pair! This is so disappointing as these are usually my go to shoes in the summer because I have plantar fascia and very few sandals have the kind of arch support that I need. Chaco usually is the best sandal for me but these just don't work. Chaco. Please change these back to how they used to be! The straps need to be adjustable!
