Z/1 Classic Sandal

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.

  • Injection-molded ladder lock buckle
  • Textured footbed with antimicrobial treatment

A proven sandal

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

They can be a bit heavy. Bought for a friend, but my pair has lasted me a long time with no issues.

First pair and I'm sold!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These are the first pair of Chacos I have ever owned and I didn't know I could be more stoked on a sandal, they really live up to the hype, I absolutely love them!

I got these in the Verdure Eclipse in a size 7.0. I usually wear a size 7.5, and the 7.0 worked perfectly for me. The color is exactly as shown in the photo. The LUVSEAT mid-sole is incredibly comfortable, especially after them being broken in. A few days after getting them I took them camping and the lateral park of my foot hurt a little bit from the straps rubbing, but my feet got used to them shortly after. I give them a 10/10!

LOVE these!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These sandals were just what I was looking for! The CHacos with the toe strap always made my feet feel claustrophobic. These bad boys are so great! Now my toes feel free and i love how supportive the footbed of these feel! I wear them for all of my water activities, camping and more!

Just didn't work

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

I got my friend Chaco's for her birthday. This was her second pair that just didn't seem to work well. We decided that her foot was too flat. The straps on the sandal were too loose on top but fit the foot length. Chaco's just won't work for her....

my everyday sandal!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've had these chacos for 5 years now and worn everyday in the spring summer and fall! There is barely any wear to the soles and will probably last me another 5 years!

chaconation!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Finally switched over to Chacos, and I love them. The classics have a bit stiffer rubber footbed than the clouds, but they're still nice. The straps are easy to adjust and are mega durable.

More chacos!

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

Had a family member who was in need of another pair of chacos, and like her multiple others they are fantastic. They hold up from any camp trip we've gone on to lake/ river trips. great shoe!

Solid

    Chacos are a classic brand with a fit you can't beat. They don't wear on any part of your foot more than the other that may cause irritation. They're perfect for a day on the river or hanging out at your campsite. If I'm inbetween sizes I will size down.

    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.

      Love

      • Fit: True to size

      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.

      Sandals

        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!!

        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: 9

        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!

        LOVE MY CHACOS

        • Size Bought: 6 M

        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

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times
        • Fit: True to size

        Always good support for feet.

        Love them!

        • Fit: True to size

        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!!

        Chaco!!!

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

        Best Sandal Out There

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: 6.0

        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!

        Classic

        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!
