I ordered Chaco sandals over the summer and loved everything about them, especially the super arch support. I have to say, I was a little disappointed to not find equal support with these shoes. But, on the bright side, the insoles are removable to add my own orthotic. They are also a tad tight across my toes, but I'm hoping they will break in to max comfort, still love these shoes!

Wonderful! I have walked all over NYC, Boston, London, and have never had any blisters. They fit right out of the box and look nicer than sneakers (but fit like them). They are light and have a somewhat stiff sole (not squishy but are not clunky). A great choice when you need a walking shoe that looks decent. I also like the fact that they don't get dirty looking and have smooth easy lacing and am able to either wear a light sock or medium wool. I can't say enough about them. They are forgiving width wise but not overly so.

An almost perfect shoe - I had to size down a half size from normal. Sturdy - good arch. I have another pair of Chaco's and can walk all day in them.

I love these shoes! I’ve had them for over a year now. They are still in great shape (I wear them probably 80% of the time) and still super comfy. Chaco (and most keens) and the only shoes I don’t need to replace the insole with high arch inserts.

Nice shoe! I have a narrow foot so I was quite surprised that these worked for me. I’m still not sure if I’ll keep them as they have a very boxy toe and make me look a little like a duck, but we shall see. Who will triumph? Comfort or style? If the style appeals to you, I’d recommend these. I see nothing negative about them thus far.

Cute shoe, but a little clunkier than I was looking for. Chacos run a bit wider than some other brands... but would still be workable with medium weight socks. Top of the shoe felt like it would rub a bit on the top of my toes. Returned.

This was love at first sight. It is a beautiful walking shoe, and I have never felt that way about a serviceable shoe. Chaco has made a stylish, functional, cooler walking shoe, that I think could do a light hike over fairly rough terrain. But I would be happy to wear this around town, or at a travel destination. I see it with shorts or cropped pants and with short socks. There are several colors in each shoe! Chartreuse, gray, light lavender and teal. They all work together to make a sophisticated, but comfy shoe. Can you tell I am impressed? The heel topline is high, making the shoe ideal for adding in orthotics or extra padding. Unfortunately, the toe area is a bit cramped, although it is not narrow. I think I've solved the problem with a 3/4 orthotic. When I've worn the shoe a bit, I hope to add extra cushioning beneath the shoe liner. On the heel the mid sole is splayed for stability. I like that! The only thing I would change about this shoe is the firm liner under my foot. Once I've worn these a bit, I hope there will be room for a cushy liner. That would make these shoes perfect.

These shoes are really comfy and have great arch support. I wear a 10.5 to 11 and ordered an 11 in these so that I could wear heavy socks. They are perfect. They are kind of a cross between a sneaker and a trail shoes. You could wear them on one of those "super highway" trails but I wouldn't do any serious hiking in them. They are great walking shoes for everything else.

These shoes will be great for long walks and hiking. I normally wear a size 7 in most shoes and had to go down to a 6.5. I have a very high arch and chaco's arch support is always great. The shoes will need a little time to break in though.

These shoe fit me perfectly right out of the box. They are comfortable and great for every day use. I have not used them in the gym.

This is my second pair of Chaco Kanarras. I find these to be an incredibly comfortable walking shoe.

Cute shoes & well make. size 8.5 was recommended but too long for my feet. The toe box is roomy, however, it pinches at the small toe, very unusually. Will try 7.5 and hope it will fit.

Love these shoes - so cute but practical for hikes as well as "urban" like the description. However, the heel felt loose so Ithink they might run a tad large.

Great shoe for hiking Europe. However, it does run large so had to order a half size smaller. Looking forward to logging miles in these

it took a few wearings to really appreciate these shoes, but 1.5 years later I don’t know how I ever walked without them. they are probably too wide for a narrow foot, but for feet on the wide side of normal, they are a dream.

These are so my go to shoes. Can't live without them! I bought an extra pair because I will be soooooo unhappy if they stop making these. And this is a little ironic, because Chaco sandals are absolutely not my thing. I don't even know what made me try these shoes, but they are perfect.

These shoes are great. The insoles are removable so you can add your own orthotic. Even after adding my orthotic (which is not super thin), there is plenty of room in the toe box and the width. They are very comfortable and have no spots that rub. Really cute looking in person...they are not super bulky like some women's hiking shoes. I usually wear 8.5 or 9 and got the 8.5 in these and they are not tight at all even when my pregnant feet are swollen at the end of the day. Love them!

Very nice shoe, unfortunately due to bunion on right foot, needed more width, so had to return.

I typically don't wear shoes like this. I love them. I wore them all day at work then grocery shopping after work = no problems. The color says black but they are more grey. I plan to wear them touring DC next week.

I wore these shoes out of the box as my only pair of shoes on a trip. They were great from the airplane to city streets to desert hiking. Pros: zero break in time required, tread is excellent, very lightweight, roomy in the toe box, removable insoles, laces stay tied. Cons: tighter across the widest part of the foot means my taller orthotics won't fit, and as other reviewers have mentioned, the skinny faux-leather strip on top of the toe scuffs easily and the shoes are not waterproof. All-in-all a great shoe and I'm contemplating buying another pair in a different color.

These fit well in my usual sneaker size. I originally bought the blue, which is a gorgeous color, but decided the gray would go better with more things. no break-in period needed, was able to wear these all day long right off the bat. Good moderate arch support and stayed snugly tied all day. Looking forward to many years of wear!

I have wide-ish feet and needed a good sturdy shoe for work that wasn't old lady-ish. These are SUPER comfy straight from the box. I have the "fudge" color. It's definitely in the purple family. I love them! As someone who sits and stands all day, comfortable and supportive are a must but aren't always available in a cute shoe. They aren't heavy either.
