I love the Chaco fip flops and needed a pair of close toed shoes that had the high arches. So I went with these. I really like them however wish they came in a wide width. and since they didnt I had to order a size bigger. I like that they are lighter weight then some of the other styles.

Fantastic shoes! These look great on, give amazing arch support and fit like a dream. I wear and 8.5 and ordered an 8.5. Perfect fit. I do have narrow feet, so possibly these could fit less well for someone with wider feet. Whether I am walking or standing, these shoes support my feet and keep them from aching. Just buy them! The red color is great.

Love. Finally a colder weather shoe from Chaco that looks cute. Not like the ped shed. Great for my flat feet.

Too narrow. :-( I think I might cry on the way to the post office to return them. Next size up should be coming tomorrow, but I'm not too hopeful.

Really liked this shoe but extremely wide. Had to return because I couldn't keep them on my feet.

I had high hopes for this shoe. I love my Chacos sandals, and it sounded from reviews as if the shoe had good support. I wear orthotics and noted from the video that it has removable inserts. But when the shoe arrived and I put in my inserts and orthotics, it was clear that there is little to no support in these shoes. So back they go.

These shoes are very long. When I ordered my regular size, I felt like I was wearing clown shoes--they had that much extra room in the toe. I ordered another pair a half size smaller, and those still seemed a little roomy in the toe. Unfortunately I'm returning them because they are a bit too narrow and dig into the base of my little toe. I'm very disappointed because the soles and arches were so comfy!

I ordered these and the Belle and the Belle seems to fit my narrow foot a bit better. These are still pretty great, however. My usual size is 5.5, which feels slightly large for me in the Valleda, but the 5 is too small. Great arch support, awesome color.

Great shoes. I like the arch support and the color. My only complaint is the shoe is a bit on the narrow side. Not so much that I will be returning, as I believe they will stretch like sneakers.

I really really wanted to like these, because Chacos are the only shoes that alleviate my plantar fasciitis pain, but the arch was not in the right place for me in these. Even worse, they look like granny's orthopedic shoes, which is what I was trying to get away from.

Though these fit okay, they were very dark (almost a black-gray, well beyond charcoal) so they didn't work for what I wanted (a medium gray shoe). And I felt that the almost-white soles against the almost-black uppers made them look too casual.

Last Spring, purchased the Chaco Torlan Bulloo which turned out to be the shoe equivalent of the now Vibram Unaweep sandals which I've owned for 7 years and just replaced (thank you, Zappos!). Thought this shoe might be similar but unforunately it's not. The Bulloo has better inner padding and is more generous in the toe box. This style did fit my narrow heel but not my less narrow toes plus the arch support seemed in a different place! Go figure. I think the sizing is generally true for a 7M but the last seems to vary from one style to another.

Brands I'd also recommend: Clarks Un and Wave styles, some Eccos, Ahnu, some Keen styles, some Merrell styles

These are so cute and I had really high hopes for them...my Chaco flip flops never leave my feet in the summer and don't wear out! However, these have such crazy arch support that they kind of hurt (and I am never one to complain about "too much" when it comes to arch support). Sad! I am returning them and just ordered the Teva equivalent, the Freewheel.
