These are my second pair. The first pair I wore every day (really, every day) for more than two years and I'd still be wearing them except the webbing has stretched a bit making them a tad loose. It's the prominent arch support that makes these flips so special I think as well as the excellent construction. I often walk miles in these puppies without the least strain.

I have worn these for the past 7 or 8 years. I used to really love them. This year they made the straps looser, thus making the shoe feel like it is going to slide right off. They have been bought out by Merrell and now they are making the shoes for people with bigger feet. Even the size 6. I am very disappointed as I am one of the many petite women in this country! Very disappointing. Same way with the full shoe with straps. Can't get them to adjust to my feet either. Guess you just have to have a large foot now to wear Chaco's!

Chaos are the bomb! I know the price seems steep for a pair of flip flops, but these aren't just any flip flop, these flip flops will change your life. I have 10 pair and I wear them every day. Run, don't walk to you wallet and buy these shoes.

Comfy. Just started wearing them, but my feet hurt in most non-supportive sandals and these I could wear for a day and still feel good. If there were half sizes in wide widths I would try them. I expect they will last a long time based on the reputation.

I wear a Size 8, 8.5 or 9 depending on the shoe. I initially ordered this flip-flop in Size 8 after reading reviews that the shoe ran large. But those fit very snugly, so I exchanged for a Size 9, which are very comfortable. My only gripe is that the straps are a little loose on the right foot, but it's not enough for me to exchange them again.

Too small for me. I ordered size 9w even tho I don't wear wide shoes. They didn't fit the upper part of my foot. These will be returned. Disappointed. I really want a pair of Chacos.

This is the most uncomfortable shoe that I have purchased from Zappos. And I do buy several. :). I can't even walk across the floor with these sandles. They kill my feet. I HIGHLY recommend for NO one to buy these. For sure a waste of money!!!

I absolutely love these flip flops. They last forever and are super comfortable and have great arch support. They are making the straps just a tad looser than they were a couple of years ago when I bought my last pair, which does have an effect when you have narrow feet like I do. I usually wear size 9 but sized down to an 8 with this pair for this reason.

My four year old EcoTread sandals are starting to fail. This new pair is not as supportive. It looks the same, but the arch support is very different. Very disappointed.

Sorry to rain on the parade, but I'm super disappointed I wasted $60 on these after reading a recommendation on a travel blog and all the positive reviews. I think it's partly because my expectations were so high. In reality, they are NOT comfortable. The first thing that shocked me how HEAVY they are - they're that really dense rubber. Also, I HATE the bumps on the sole. Every step is distracting. The straps are too loose, and while the shoes don't seem at risk of falling off, they're loose enough that I can't help but scrunch my toes a bit when I walk. Also they hit the arch on my right foot weird, and the straps started to rub uncomfortably. Unfortunately, when I tried them on inside, I couldn't tell how bad they were, so I gave them a go outside for a few miles and thus ruined my chances of a return. I'm going back to my beloved yoga mat flip-flops by Sanuk (never should have tried anything else!), which have always been amazingly comfortable.

These are fantastic indoor "slippers" for those of us with plantar fasciitis. I wear them inside year round. Of course, they're also great outside for beach wear.

I've owned several pairs of Chaco's flips over the past several years and am finding myself highly disappointed in this years version. I've always worn these to the bone as soon as the weather permits here in Colorado, I live in them and they've never disappointed. Immediately upon trying these on however, I knew they just wouldn't be the same as past versions. The straps seem to be much looser and designed for larger feet, my feet are swimming in them and with no way to tighten them down my feet slide around with every step. Otherwise, size (as far as length and width of the foot base) seems the same. The straps also seem to be made of cheaper material than past years, they're not as thick, and appear to be of cheaper material-they don't seem that they'll hold up as well as past years straps. Overall, I wish I could find my size in past years versions of this sandal because I'm not excited about this newest version. They just don't fit right because of the strap changes making them uncomfortable. Plus side of them-I love the new colors...but the sandals just don't fit for me unfortunately. They definitely seem re-designed this year for a larger foot.

Very comfortable flip flop! Thought I could use the wide, but the wide was too wide so get the regular width. I wear a size 7 and my foot if right at the heals edge, so if you are a half size I would order up a size.

In some shoes I can get by with a medium width (Clarkes, Crocs), but if I see a wide available I'll go for that just to reduce that break in time. Ordered these in a wide and I swear they're more narrow than some regular width sandals that I own. Very disappointed. If you normally wear a wide and are thinking these are a good choice, these are not the sandals for you. Unfortunately I wore them outside for a few minutes trying to convince myself that they weren't extremely painful so it's doubtful that I can return them now. I'll have to try and stretch them out, or figure out how to make the straps about 1/4" looser.

Beware - major downgrade in quality. I once gave a raving 5 star review for these before, back in 2013, but the new styles of the Eco tread are completely different! I'm a product designer so maybe this caught my eye asap, but, here goes: The New - have paper thin straps compared to the older, the soles are just the same weight as before but not as flexible (don't have give if you push your thumb in) so they feel sloppy and heavy as the straps aren't thick enough (quality cut here) to keep your feet sturdy and in line with the soles. I recently tested both pair and held them side by side. The new dry quicker, but this is because the strap thickness has been cut down so much! The older have softer and thicker wraps and are not loose. The new outsoles are not as grippy (you'll also notice Chaco stopped working with higher quality Vibram on the Z's). Anyway, resulting in a poor fit that doesn't feel as nearly as secure or crafted as the same model just a few years ago. This sadly, is what it looks like when a company cuts corners people. Sad to have this happen.

I normally wear a size 8.5 or 9, I ordered the 9 in this shoe and the length was short and the straps narrow (I have thin feet). Returned them for a size 10, and they are great! Very comfortable and supportive. These are going to be favorites this season!

I love these flips! The fit is perfect and they have just enough arch support. I like them so much that I just ordered a pair in another color. Chaco is fast becoming my go-to brand for sandals.
