I'm comparing this product to the Chaco Updraft X2 Genweb, which is the pair I decided to keep. The ZX/2 fit my foot OK and is easier to adjust than the Updraft. The toe loop makes your foot feel so much more stable and, assuming you're doing some hiking in these, it will make a big difference. The foot bed of the ZX/2 is a little less molded than the Updraft, so it will fit more feet, but it also offers less support and is noticeably heavier and clunkier/thicker. All things considered, this is a decent sandal, but I preferred the Updraft because it's lighter and seemed a little more supportive.

I walk two miles, twice a day, in these sandals, and wear a second pair indoors (to prevent imbedded cactus spines in the outdoor pair from damaging the flooring) the rest of the day. I do really like the sandals.
I wear something between a mens 9.5C and 10B (European 42 or 43) depending upon the last of the shoe/boot. The women's 11 medium width works just fine. The double straps permit a better fit on the big toe; they can overlap a bit and not seem as stiff.

These are my third pair of Chacos and the first since they started producing in China. They are still great, but not quite as comfortable as the other ones I have worn. The heel seems to be narrower on these new ones. Also, the bottoms look a little cheaper (not quite sure how to describe, but just doesn't seem to be fused/glued together as well) so I will see how they hold up compared to the ones I've been wearing for 8 and 10 years. Overall I am happy with my purchase and have had no real issues with comfort.

I had only heard good things about chacos. When I finally got this pair for myself, it was everything I expected. You can just tell the quality of shoe when you hold them. Very durable, very comfortable, and a great looking shoe. I find any excuse to wear these.

I really wanted these sandals to work for me, but after trying to adjust the straps I gave up. Also the sole on this sandal is rough and was rubbing my feet wrong while walking in the house just trying to adjust the straps. Sadly returning them... :-(

I've been wearing my Chaco ZX/2 sandals for 5 years, and I decided to get another pair to have a different color. I love the support and cushion. I wear these all the time! Most comfortable shoes I've ever worn.
