I have quite a few pairs of chaco shoes, boots and sandels that I have been able to purchase in the UK, I really wanted these shoes so ordered them from Sierra, the only problem with this was the cost of the import duty, horrendous to have to pay another £28.00. The shoes were as the reviews suggested,hard leather so I was prepared for this, I could hardly get them on, squashed my feet with my socks , so here's a tip I tried and it works, put the sock in the shoe first, then slip your foot in, no tight socks and the shoe fits. Now heres how I dealt with the hard leather, I purchased some Flexalan oil, similar to neatsfoot oil used to oil horse saddles and tack, coated the shoes a couple of times and now they are soft and I can actually put the shoes straight on without needing to put the socks in the shoes first, the shoes are really comfortable now and I am very pleased. Would buy from Sierra Trading and recommend them, but I am not willing to pay any more import duty. I purchased other things from America that were sent through international shipping and did not have to pay any import duty, if Sierra trading could post things like that, I would be buying lots more things from this company. Very pleased with these shoes though, hope the tips help.

My daughter has feet on the long and narrow side (though not abnormally so!) We ordered her regular size, 9- she could barely squeeze her toe in, and her heels hung off the back.
They are very attractive and the construction looks great, so we'll exchange for a 10.
If you have this kind of foot, size up!

I got these last summer to have something reasonably stylish to teach in when the weather got too hot for my boots. Alas, while I love the look and they seem very sturdy and have great instep support, the heel cup aggressively rubs, and become very uncomfortable should one have to walk more than a few blocks. I ordered size 10, which I normally wear, so these may run a bit big, but not a full half-size or anything.
