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!

I have six pairs of Chaco's and I usually love them. These run small and the sole is much thinner than I am used to with traditional Chaco's. I still like them but will try them 1/2 size larger.

Five stars plus! Let me just first start by saying, I was looking to get another pair of Olukai's for summer (I have about 8 pairs of their sandals) and these caught my eye in the store, so I tried them on and now I will wear nothing else! To my surprise, because I had been so glued to one brand, Chaco surpasses my expectations. The fit is 100% perfect for my normal to narrow foot with moderate arch. My Chiropractor comments on how healthy my feet are, and I can thank wearing cute orthotic shoes. Olukai's seem pretty comfy, but when the straps loosen, the sandals feel a full size too large. Chaco has held up and kept my foot in place because the straps don't over stretch, no "flopping" and the footbed is so comfortable - it provides correct foot placement but has bounce and a lot of flexibility. It's the same price you'd pay for any sandal of this class, and I love them even more than the comfort that Birkenstock has to offer, so I'm going to stay with Chaco. What I'd love to see would be some solid colors but in person the EcoFlip is really flattering. Also good job on using recycled materials.

Brands I'd also recommend: Birkenstock, Keen

This is my go to flip flop. Third pair and I have a pair in brown leather. Good arch support and non-stinky rubber. I can get two or three seasons out of these wearing them almost every day.

I am a huge Chaco fan. I especially love the Chaco flip ecotread. I am a true 10M and they fit my foot perfectly. Plus, have a really amazing arch support! My foot says "thank you" every time I put them on. I have worn them all day when touring with absolutely no foot fatigue. I love them so much that I already have six pairs and am about to order a seventh! I just wish that Chaco made them in more colors. All that being said, I have two friends with narrow feet who say who can't wear them because the strap rubs their foot uncomfortably. However, I have another friend with plantar fasciitis who swears by them.

I've been wearing Chaco Flips for about 10 years now, ever since I realized I needed sandals with better arch support. The Chaco Flip EcoTreads give me great support, they last a long long time, they are washable, and they come in some very attractive colors. Don't hesitate to wear them and you'll love them.

These flip flops are really comfortable. I have owned other Chaco sandals (X/2) and loved the ergonomic footbed and stability, but I really don't need all the extra straps when I'm just going around town. These sandals are comfortable, stylish and easily compete with other popular brands (for example, Olukai) and they have the streamlined, basic flip flop look.

I have extremely wide feet and these are a tiny bit narrow in fit. I am not aware of the arch support so it's comfortable and not too much support. The raised dots on the foot bed tend to annoy my feet, but I will get used to it. I'm not sending them back because I live in flip flops year around. I would recommend these to anyone.

This is the third pair of Chacos EcoTreads that I have bought from Zappos. The Chacos have a comfortable footbed and the piece that goes between the toes has never been a problem for me. These are my go to flips for any occasion. The customer service from Zappos is the best.

Good flip flop...nice arch support....the nylon strap takes a little breaking in to soften up. Recommend it!

The flip-flops arrived within the estimated time. They are less comfortable than a softer sandal but are well made and seem to offer the support I need to help me recover from my plantar fasciitis.

I can't believe I have finally found a flip flop with arch support and that comes in a wide size! I ordered the 6 wide and it's very true to size. I agree with what everyone else says, the straps are too big, even with my wide foot I'm sliding around more than I like but the shoe still stays on. I have square brick feet and found the toe to have a very elegant slight slope to it without being pointy (rainbows)or too square (Reefs). Feminine supportive sandals, Finally! Thanks Chaco!

This is my second pair of Chaco's Flip EcoTreads. My first pair is going on 4 years old and is still fine. I just thought I'd get a replacement while they were still available. I wear then all year -- as house slippers in the winter and for everything in the summer. They have a great arch support. I have narrow feet and they are very comfortable for walking.

I love these. Seriously. Normally I would never spend this kind of money on a "flip flop", but I had a flip flop emergency and picked up this pair. Now I'm never going cheap again! My feet are getting old, and the arch support on these makes all the difference. (Though my arches are kind of high, and my feet are slightly narrow.) I've had a pair of the original strappy, river shoes for years, but the soles always irritated my feet. These soles do not. I'm looking for my 3rd pair of Chacos now.

Love these! Have a dozen+ pair of flip-flops and always end up coming back to these. Sturdy enough to be the only pair I take with me on extended surf trips to the islands and C America. Comfortable enough to wear all day..and cute enough to throw on with a dress for (casual) dinners out when traveling. A quick caveat/word of advice though...the first few days I wore these I hated them; then, viola! around day seven or so--they seemed to 'suddenly' break in and have been amazingly comfortable ever since. So..if you get these and think you hate them after the first few wearings--don't give up! give 'em a few days and you'll be glad you did.

I like these shoes because the strap dose not rub the tops of my foot. That's very important to me for I have a skin condition.

I love these flip flops so much. I had a pair I'd bought 3 years ago that had one strap break, so I'm buying a 2nd pair I loved them that much. They're so comfortable - the footbed is perfectly contoured. I had a pair with leather straps & footbed & found that if it got damp, the color would bleed onto my foot. These are my all weather versions now. Sizing is about right, perhaps a tiny bit small compared to most shoes for me.

Suffering from plantar fasciitis and being a supinator I know the importance of not walking around barefoot. So, after LOTS of research I decided on these flip flops. They have excellent arch support. They are a solid flip flop. They are not uber comfortable, in my opinion. Maybe they become comfortable in time? I'm more concerned that they'll keep my foot pain at a minimum. They are also long, so if you have long toes, you'll be happy!! I do not have long toes but that's okay because I'm only going to wear them around the house. As always, Zappos is the best with customer service.

I used to have these awesome flips 3 years ago but lost them in a trip. I'm going backpacking again and of course I thought of these! I read one of the first reviews and was surprised to read one that said that they are making the straps wider. I have super narrow feet, this is why I used to love these...because of the perfect grip. I ordered them anyways because I had to try them for myself...and Oh No! They are making them wider than before! This is such a shame! I had to return them, sadly. Not good Chacos...not good.

I have several other pairs of Chacos but I wear a 10 Wide. I have really wide feet. I wanted a simple slip on shoe to wear around the house that has support. Loved the color of these and the price so thought I'd give a Medium width a try. They sort of fit but just barely. When I bent my toes all of the way my last couple of toes hung off the side. Not a good look. I really need the wides. Length was great. That said I also wasn't thrilled with this really thin sole. Arch support was okay but not as great as in the fully strapped shoes - I think that may have been just because my heel could slide around in these. I also think the thinner sole is just really different for me and that I would have gotten used to that. All of these issues put together just made me return them. I did talk to a Chacos customer service rep who said their Men's 8 Medium would be equivalent to their Women's 10 Wide so I'm trying the Hipthong in Mens since they don't come in wide in womens. We'll see. Thank you Zappos for such great return policies & such easy ordering!
