Chaco Z/1 Classic Sandal - Women's
ChacoZ/1 Classic Sandal - Women's

Known the world over for their dependability across rough terrain, Chaco Sandals have rightfully developed a loyal, almost cult-like following. Building off this far-reaching success, the Chaco Women's Z/1 Classic Sandal provides the classic style and rugged durability that's legendary among hikers, river paddlers, and everyday wearers. Pull-through adjustable webbing straps provide a fine-tuned fit.  The trusty ladder lock buckle cinches tightly to prevent the straps from loosening during active wear.

The textured polyurethane footbed keeps your feet from sliding around, especially on humid summer days. Speaking of sweltering conditions, the antimicrobial footbed keeps the Z/1 pleasantly fresh after rigorous treks in stifling heat. Plus, the LUVSEAT midsole cushions your every step with its ergonomic, women-specific design. The ChacoGrip rubber sole features 3mm lugs that grip aggressively to prevent slipping.

A Standard Classic

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I finally made the leap to switch to the no toe-loop Chaco style after two difficult pairs with toe-loops. Although I don't love the look of no toe-loop, the comfort level and utility far exceeds my last pairs. All in all, a solid shoe. Great for casual hiking and desert trips. A pair of Chacos is a necessity in my closet.

Z1 is the best one!

    Once you switch to Chacos you don't go back. Z1 models are wonderful for when this inevitably becomes your primary shoe and you want to be able to slip them on quickly without doublestraps or toe loops getting in your way (re: cold camp mornings where you have no intention of taking your wool socks off yet.) I prefer chacos over other brands because of heir classic reliable arch support.

    These were my first pair of Chacos and my goodness, i'm pretty stoked on them! I'll wear them casually, hiking, just lounging at the campsite - pretty much whenever! Super functional and comfortable. I'm a true 7.5 and I got a size 7, which i'm happy with! I may go with the Wide option for my next pair of Chacos because they seem a tad narrow on my feet, but nevertheless, still super comfortable.


      These sandals are pretty dang comfy! And an all around awesome shoe! Nice especially during the summer with the hot weather and going out.

      Best Shoe I Own!!

      I love my chaco's and after several years it was time to get a new pair. I love the thick strap and am digging the Chaco's without the toe strap. These provide awesome support for my feet and have proven to be super durable so far. Best summer shoe i could ask for!

      I have many pairs of Chacos & have been wearing them for years. I love the comfort, durability, & all the fun colors / designs.
      Can't have too many!

      Good fit

      Always good support for feet.

      Love them!

      I chose these specifically for the black design compared to the others, and I love them. I haven't been able to use them hiking yet besides small trails, but I've tried breaking them in through my daily routine and they are comfortable. Of course chacos come with the usual breaking in of soreness and slight blistering, but once that happens, they are wonderful!!


      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

      I love all chaco products and this holds true to that.

      Best Sandal Out There

      Wowee Chacos are the best sandals I've ever had! They are so durable. I wear them nearly everyday in the summer. Great for hiking, swimming, rafting, running around, doing it all! They have a great arch support making them so, so, so comfortable! My feet never hurt when I wear these. The straps are easily adjustable and can accommodate almost any foot size. Once the cold weather starts to approach I just throw on a pair of socks with them and I'm good to go.

      I do wish they came in half sizes. I am normally a women's 6.5 and went with the 6. They still fit great but I would like a little extra room around the toes.

      Overall awesome sandals. They're cute too!

      Gave these to my Girlfriend and she loves them! She loves how much arch support they have and loves the cute webbing colors and design. She had been wearing Teva's before these and now she won't take them off. She loves how you can really customize the fit to any shape or size of foot. She loves them and so will you!

      Do you sell the wide version of this sandal?

      Can't Go Wrong!

        Gave these to my sister whom swore by them! She had a previous pair that the she lost and asked for some as my next gift to her. She loves them and uses them almost everyday. Keep in mind that Chaco has a stellar warranty which is unheard of for a shoe brand.
