Chaco sandals are a favorite of outdoor enthusiasts all over the planet. Featuring an ergonomic LUVSEAT footbed and adjustable straps, Chaco hiking sanadals are like a little piece of heaven for your feet. Basically, any pair of Chaco sandals are completely adjustable to fit your foot perfectly. Chaco also makes some pretty sweet ergonomic flip flop sandals called Chaco Flips.
When it comes down to hiking and walking sandals, you're going to want to check out the different types of Chacos and find the ones that are right for your feet. First off, there are two basic kinds of Chacos: Chacos with a single strap and Chacos with a double strap. The double strap allows you to fine-tune the fit, which is pretty cool. The single strap is also cool and incredibly comfortable and provides quick and easy adjustment. It's all about your personal tastes, really.
So, the Chaco Z Series Sandals are available with either the single or double strap. The Chaco Z1 is the simplest Chaco walking sandal, featuring a single strap and no toe loop, which provides more foot freedom. The Chaco Z2 looks about the same, but has the double strap. The Chaco ZX1 features the single strap, but also has a section of webbing that goes around your big toe for extra security. The Chaco ZX2 features the toe loop like the ZX1, but also features the double strap. I just typed strap a lot.
The next greatest thing about Chacos is the sole. Chacos have several different kinds of outsoles including: the non-marking and self-cleaning Vibram Unaweep sole, the lightweight slip-resistant Vibram Yampa sole, and the recycled rubber EcoTread. Of course, all Chaco sandals feature the LUVSEAT footbed, which cradles your foot and arch, and helps align your body for better posture.
If you want a slip-on sandal, check out Chaco Zong sandals. The Chaco Zong feautres the single strap, while the Chaco Zong-X has the double strap. Other options are slip-ons like the Chaco Hipthong and new Chaco Tanana.
