ZX/2 Classic Sandal

The Chaco Women's ZX/2 Classic Sandal offers streamlined support and a stunning array of zesty patterns for the adventurous hiker, seasoned paddler, and casual wearer. The double-strapped webbing provides a custom fit with its pull-through adjustment and secure toe loop. Preventing the straps from slipping, the ladder lock buckle cinches tightly to eliminate excess movement during active wear.

The textured polyurethane footbed keeps your feet from sliding around, especially during water immersion and humid weather. Keeping them fresh during extended treks, the antimicrobial treatment blocks odor-causing microbes from taking residence. Plus, the LUVSEAT midsole cushions your every step with its ergonomic, women-specific design. Another cool feature is the rugged ChacoGrip rubber sole, with 3mm lugs for stability across rough terrain and slippery shorelines.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

They're chacos and they're great, one thing is the footbed is firmer/harder then other models and it takes awhile to break them in, but once they're broke in they're great!

Unanswered Question

If I am a half size should I size up or down?

They're cool

Pretty comfortable sandal. I've used it a couple times and have no complaints so far.

Perfect sandals

    These are my wife's first pair of chacos and she loves them. She wore these on a trip to florida and wore them on the beach, on long walks and while trekking around town. She didnt get any blisters and loved them.

    Love them!

    These are great to walk in all day! Perfect summer sandals.

    Chacos are the best. If you're looking for shoes for the long haul, the classic foot bed is where its at. The newer designs are comfy, but the squishy beds end up being hotter for my feet and are uncomfortable when wet. I am not personally a big fan of the double strap (the X in ZX2) design. I think they are more finicky to get into the position you like and are not as easy to slip into (these were a gift for my niece). I do support the toe loop (the 2 in ZX2) because it is more secure in water - and I can just stomp them down when I wear them with wool socks.

    First replacement in 10 years

      Women’s ZX2 Classic Chacos:
      My first pair of ZX2s finally tore through the straps after 10 years of continuous summer use I knew I wanted the same thing for the next 10 years of playing outdoors. I hike in these for anything under 4 miles, wear them in the lake and river, and wear them just doing daily stuff. Couldn’t love them more.

      chaco chaco!!!!

      best sandal and long lasting.

      I wear them everyday!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      These are the best sandals I have owned. They fit my wide feet perfect after I learned how to adjust them and they're cute! I've done easy hikes in them and wear them fishing and kayaking. They work well in the water and on land.

      Almost what I wanted

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I got these to replace my Chacos that were falling apart. They didn't seem quite as burly. Maybe that's because there's not yet enough dirt worked into the straps to make them stiff? I'm slowly breaking them in. They're doing the trick. I still hate the toe loop because it always tightens down and chokes my toe out, but tucking it away is still a reasonable solution. Next time I'm going for the toe-loop-less model. But in the mean time, at least I look cool.

      Pay it Forward

      My sister has been wearing Chacos for as long as they've been around. She recently converted me, and I bought her these as a gift. Of course, she loves them .

      Purchased for my girlfriend. She has had Chacos for many seasons, and these are her first double strap sandals. She says they could use a bit of wearing in the water to loosen up. The ankle strap is a bit long and needs to be cut. Bummer they don't use Vibram soles anymore!

      Got a pair of these for Mom. She went with the nice purple design and she really likes them. She is looking forward to wearing them to all of her summer activities hanging out in Costa Rica and the beaches of NC.

      Though born and bred for most river activities and general mountain summer activities, my mom still feels as though the Chaco is comfortable for everyday wear during the warmer parts of the year in NC

      You really don't need any other sandals. These are true to size. I mistakenly bought a size too large for width then learned how to adjust the straps to fit.

      You never need another shoe.

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Ok- that sounded dramatic. But seriously, I LIVE in these shoes. Especially in the west where sandals aren't a blister issue.


        Got these for the misses, they are great so far! Only issue is if you get them wet they seem to rub bad, so maybe have her wear them more loose I suppose.

        for the lady

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

        She likes them a lot but had some painful chaffing while breaking them in. Now she has no issues and really enjoys these.


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

        Picked these up for the sista and she loves them and is never taking them she said. Took her a minute to dial in the straps but a simple Youtube visit helped her dial them in.

        Restricting on the Toes

        • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: 8

        I bought these Chacos to wear for every day use and for day hiking in the summer. I like that the style is a little more subdued than normal Chacos and I can wear these out without feeling like a total granola. These are definitely comfortable for long wear and for hiking. The only thing I would change is buying the style without the toe ring. I know there are instructions on how to adjust straps to avoid strangling your toes, but somehow mine always end up hurting my big toe at some point throughout the day. If you have smaller or narrow feet these are great for you.

        I absolutely love these shoes! They are comfortable, stay on my feet, and provide great arch support for flat footed people like myself. I would very much recommend these shoes and this company to everyone!!
