This is my fifth pair of Chacos in the last two years. Yes, I love them, but my dog loves them more. She has devoured the straps of every previous pair. I know you can send them in for repair or re-strapping, but my the time you pay for postage and the repair fee, it's as expensive as a new pair on sale. Obviously I love them enough to keep buying them, but only when they are on deep discount.
I bought my first pair in 2002 or so and wore them almost daily in warm weather until two years ago when I got the above referenced dog who chewed them up. These are the best all-purpose casual sandals ever. Super comfortable, go from land to water and back, easy on the feet for long walks or hikes. This time I got a wide size cause my feet are on the border of wide and they are the best fit yet. The only complaint is that there's too much strap left over flopping in the wind when I tighten them up. Easy enough to remedy, though. When they aren't on my feet, they are on a high shelf away from the dog.

The footbed on these is really hard, and it feels as if it is too high on the inside of the heel, so tends to roll your foot out. Also, the straps across the instep were tight (and not adjustable), even though I do not have high arches, and just a normal B width foot. Also, I ordered what looked like a tan color, but turned out to be green. Not a bad color, just not the color I needed.

I ordered a 10 instead of a 9, as recommended for half sizes, and these sandals were way too big. I love the arch support and the wide width, but now I can't find the size combination I need. It's a pity because I think these would have been perfect.

I bought my first pair of chaco sandals whilst on holiday in Sydney 7 years ago andI have worn them each summer since then. I have walked many miles in them and they finally needed replacing. I have been unable to find the style I have found so comfortable anywhere in the UK and ordered a pair from Sierra Trading Post in the US. I had no problems with the ordering process and the sandals arrived within a few days.
