So comfortable!!! Mine are a tad big because I'm usually a 7.5 and got an 8, but they still work! Cute too!

Great shoes! It took me a couple weeks of fiddling with the straps and then they were perfect. I have plantar fascitis and these arches hug and make my arch supported. I ordered the size up to fit my arch better and give me a little more strap room.

After 6 months of excruciating foot, leg, knee, hip, low back pain and an avid Old Navy flip flop person, I was told by Michelle at REI in Folsom, I have high arches! At 46 yrs old I certainly had no idea. To me, high arches were higher than what I have. I tried on a pair of Superfeet arch supports with my Sanita work shoes and was in heaven. then we talked about my Flip flip issue. She said not to give up, but try the Chaco flip flop. They had not come in yet, so I bought the ZX/2 Yampa. Pain gone immediately!! I am on my feet 10 hrs a day on concrete floors and have tile floors in my home. I need support all the time! I made sure to do a lot of walking immediately and I was amazed with the energy I had. Amazing what great support for your feet can do to your over all health and well being.

This is a very comfortable sandal. I have medium-to-wide (bordering on the wide-side) feet and definitely need the wide width in any Chaco sandal, as they do run narrow. The double straps do add a feminine quality to the sandal. The straps don't slide around (toe-strangle) too much, but the trick to getting them to stay put is to, first, get as close to the most perfectly-adjusted fit to your foot as possible and THEN immediately get them dirty/muddy/sandy! Do this a few times, and the straps will slip less and less. They are not too heavy (Yampa soles are 1 of the lightest weight soles for Chaco). The only downside is that the heel strap is a bit loose and not adjustable. But, still a very comfortable, durable sandal overall!

Love my new Chacos! So comfortable. Definitely worth the money. Zappos.com was the only place with the river color I was looking for. I can't believe how fast they shipped and shipping was free!

These are great shoes. I ordered them to wear on our Disney trip, because I knew we were going to be doing a lot of walking and I did not want to wear tennis shoes. I would recommend breaking them in before hand. The only complaint I have is the textured in sole of the shoe. I felt like I was rubbing a blister on the bottom of my foot. I did in fact get a blister on the side of my foot wear from the back straps. Again, I should have worn them more before we left for our trip.

They are very cute, very comfortable and very sturdy. I wore them right away with no break-in time necessary. These are for a trip to the Galapagos, but I will wear them all summer.

I really like the way the shoes look and feel, but probably some of my dislikes are my own fault and there are better made chacos there. It's a big snug on my big toe, and it is harder to adjust the straps and they get a bit twisted. So the mono-strap would probably be better! But they have been great so far for the beach, walking, etc! Mach with a lot of things.

The shoes were very cute, but the adjustment of the straps was very awkward. They didn't fit my foot evenly, and I had a hard time putting them on quickly - quite a problem if you want to wear them in the outdoors. Thank you Zappos for making the return easy!

This style is very cute looking on. However, the functionality of the adjustments for the straps is a bit confusing and does not work as well as other brands. The straps all run underneathe the footbed, so you adjust by pulling and tugging each strap. The sole is rather heavy and the arch does not fit my foot well. Although, to be fair, this seems to be an issue for my particular foot because I have had arch placement trouble with other brands. All in all, this sandal has a very solid construction, but the fit was terrible for my particular foot. I'm sad. I must return them. But I'm glad Zappos makes it as painless as possible to return items!

Very comfortable shoes. I have narrow feet and was able to adjust these to size after a few attempts. Only downside is that my feet are so narrow, I had to have the strap cut and sewn at the end by the shoemaker so it doesn't drag! If your feet aren't really narrow, that won't be an issue.

I love my Chaco's! It can be a little intimidating spending so much on a pair of sandals, but they are well worth the money! I have 2 pairs. My first pair are at least 10 years old and are the single strap style. The soles don't have as much traction as the did when I first got them but I still wear them. My second pair are the cuter double strap style. They are 7 years old, and one of the double straps recently broke. But I still feel that I got my money's worth out of them! I was starting to feel it was time to replace them though because the traction was starting to wear a little too much. So I am starting to look for my 3rd pair and I have no hesitations about buying them again. Though I am trying to decide whether to go for the cuter double straps or the slightly more durable single strap. Also the double strap style took a little longer to get broken in and comfortable compared to the single style. But I wear these almost everywhere! I love hiking in them and find the arch support in them so comfortable. I usually wear 8.5 to size 9 shoe and have a narrow foot. I bought size 9 both times and they fit perfectly. These are my favorite pair of sandals! For anyone having hesitations about these shoes, I say throw caution to the wind and get yourself a pair! You will not be disappointed!

I got these super fast with Zappos! I got to pick the color and style that I wanted even with the season about to end I found them here! It was super fast and easy. I love my new Chacos! They fit perfectly. They can be a little hard to adjust and need a good weekend of hiking to really break them in but after that you never want to take them off because their arch support is so good! I hope this helps!

This sandal is a great find! I normally use orthotic inserts in my shoes. Sandals won't accommodate my inserts, so I needed to find sandals with enough support that I could leave out my orthotics. It took a few days for me to grow accustomed to the feel of these sandals on my feet, but since I got used to them, I have worn them nearly every day, and I haven't had foot pain (which normally happens if I skip wearing my orthotics). I am so happy with these sandals! I'm considering buying them in another color as well.

After conquering the initially frustrating ordeal of adjusting the straps (hint: instructions are printed on the inside of the box), I became a Chaco-believer. Great for hiking or romping around town. I feel very comfortable hopping around wet rocks in a mountain stream with these sandals.

I've always wanted a pair Chacos but was skeptical because of the price. However once I did purchase them & received them I can't stop wearing them! They are my most worn shoe & they're so comfortable!! I wear them going hiking as well to six flags. & since I have longer toes the toe strap hides the fact that they're so long! Also Zappos shipping never fails me, it came the next business day! I will totally recommend these shoes!

Ordered these for my daughter who needed a water shoe for camp. She loves them! They were exactly what she was looking for. They dried quickly and kept her feet from getting scraped up by the rocks in the river. She loved that she could adjust the straps to fit her foot, it gave her foot stability.

This is my first pair of Chacos and after some consultation with friends that own the brand, I knew what I was getting into. These aren't going to be comfortable right off the bat. In fact, they might be miserable. They're snug, but not enough that I would need a wide. After some getting used to, they will eventually form to your feet and the straps will loosen up. I wore them around the house for about a day to work them out, and now they're great! I love the color which was what drew me to them in the first place! I received a pair that had some damage to the strap and customer service exchanged them via chat in an instant. Top notch service at Zappos!

I got these shoes about a month ago and love them! They have great support for my low arches and help keep my feet feeling good all day long. One of the best things about them is that the straps adjust to your foot for a custom fit feel.

I had a pair of Chacos more than 10 years ago and decided to give them another shot. I've had them about a month and they've already seen heavy use including being my only footwear for a 4-day trip in New York City that included a huge amount of walking. I was worried I'd end up with blisters or foot pain that I often get from foot surgery 7 years ago. I got neither and was amazed! Great arch support. Great fit customizability. I find I need to readjust a bit after several hours of wear as my feet swell a bit later in the day. Once I got the hang of what order to use when loosening/tightening, it is as easy as pie (and the instructions are always available on Chaco's website as well as printed on the box they come in). Worth every penny. Great looking, comfortable, and no "Teva stink" issue like years past. A+ If only Chaco's made something a bit more formal for work with the same support.
