Nice Revision of a Classic Sandal

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 12

This is my third pair of Chacos in my life. They last long enough that when it comes time to buy a new pair I tend to agonize over the decision knowing that I will be living it with it for years after.

I decided to take a chance on the mega-version of the classic Z1. The larger straps are incredibly comfortable and the additional of a cast-metal adjustment buckle looks great and provides a premium feel. Footbed and tread provide all the comfort and grip respectively that I've come to rely on Chaco for.

One complaint is the way the heel strap interacts with my foot. I feel like the wider web forces this band to sit lower on my heel than a normal Z1. I have to be more mindful about synching down the main buckle to get my foot to feel solidy locked in; with the normal version I could slip the sandal on and leave the buckle loose without feeling that my foot would pull out unexpectedly.

Same as it ever was, only MEGA!

Everything that you would expect from the classic Z sandal. Excellent support, good grip, and the wider straps are very comfortable. I didn't feel like there was much, if any, break in period. As always, very happy about my chacos.
The only thing that I would knock about these sandals are the metal buckle; they look good, just feel like the added weight detracts from the sandal a bit.

The Swiss Army Knife of Sandals

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: 10

These were my first pair of Chacos and I am sold! I've worn them for shorter hikes here in the Wasatch, mowing the lawn, and to backyard BBQs and they have been great for all of them. I will definitely be taking them on river floating trips and anytime I'm on the water this Summer as well. They do not come in half sizes but I am usually a 10.5 shoe so the 10s were perfect for me. Not small enough to scrape my toes on the rocks but not too roomy either. Officially a Chaco convert!
