Moosejaw Staff Pick "The Chaco Hipthong Two Ecotreads are BY FAR the most comfy and versatile sandals I have ever owned. The Hipthongs have an awesome adjustable feature that let me go from casual to sport sandal in just a few secs, and let me make trips to the park with only a single pair of footwear. I have worn my Hipthongs to work almost every single day this summer, and once wore them for a day of playing in Detroit that included miles of walking. There was a day I went to a local park and wore these sandals to the beach, on a short hike on the trails, and then walked the bike path to the sand volleyball court. After an hour of jumping around in the sand barefoot, my feet were happy to get back into the Hipthongs. Heck, tighten up the straps up and you can even wear the Hipthongs for a quick bike ride. All of this while being as comfortable as my favorite pair of slippers. The best, you guys." Jim - Moosejaw Secret Headquarters
FEATURES of the Chaco Men's Hipthong Two Ecotread Sandal
Upper: Polyester jacquard webbing and stretch polyester webbing cross straps with a custom injection molded ladder lock for a secure hold
Chacos are one of my addictions. I have a pair of unaweeps, a pair of yampas, and a pair of hipthongs. These hipthongs are nice, comfy scandals for wearing around town. Very comfy. They are not as adjustable as the traditional style chacos, but the elasticity in the straps keeps them in place pretty well. My feet are pretty narrow, and they still fit okay, just a little loose. I hike in my unaweeps, but I would not suggest hiking in these. The thinner soles and absence of a heel strap keep me from wearing them for anything serious. I must again stress that these things are really comfortable.
The strap configuration squeezes your foot backwards out of the sandal worse than flip flops. I wear flip flops all summer long and they stay on better than these sandals. I would not recommend them. If you buy them make sure you wear them around the house a good long time to make sure they work for you before committing. I will be returning mine.
