I usually buy a women's size 7.5-8 shoe and I can wear these Chaco youth sandals in a size 5! Fits perfectly and I pay much less than if I bought the adult size. I have the brown sandal with flowers and they are so cute! Love them..no one would ever know I was wearing a youth sandal. Very comforta...

So my mechanical engineer husband loves his Chaco's. RAVES about them. His last pair lasted him something amazing like 10 years or so. When I saw they make them for my little guy, I couldn't wait to get the Mini Me a pair.
Well, I made the mistake of taking them out of the box myself. I should have just left them in there and waited until my husband got home like I do when something breaks around here. The adjustment system on these sandals are made either for an engineer or a magician.....pull this strap and the one on the other side of the shoe shortens, pull that one you just shortened, and the one at the front of the shoe gets longer! It's really quite magical and not just a little bit confusing if you're not used to it. Not to be outdone by a pair of shoes, I forged on and attempted to fit them for my little one's chubby feet. But I just couldn't quite get the hang of it and this itty bitty pair of sandals made a mockery of me and my footwear skills. With that being said, once my husband came home and the shoes were adjusted properly, they're great looking, sturdy and stable. I am sure my son will outgrow these way before they wear out and maybe by then, I'll finally have figured out how to put them on!

I have worn Chacos for over a decade. I've hiked, rafter, kayaked and hung out in them. Now it's my 7 year old son's turn. It's like a right of passage. I wasn't sure how he was going to like them. He's loved them form day 1 and these are now his go-to footwear.

We decided to get my 8 year old son a pair of Chacos as his all-summer-long-shoes, since they will take a beating and are good for beach, water, or regular play. I liked the darker color green , as they won't show dirt, so he can get away with wearing them with "nicer" outfits too! So far they're a hit, and since you can adjust the z straps, the half size larger that we purchased will be just fine !

Ordered these Chacos for my kids at first, they didn't like them. I've got a small foot so I thought they would be great for me. The straps set fairly far back behind the toes. That leaves a large piece of the footbed under my toes without a strap. I've spent one and a half years with that front sole getting caught on things and nearly tripping me. After a walk on the Maine coast aged me a decade due to the "almost tumbles" down the cliffs, I'm done with these shoes. I don't like them at all, and they are going back. For me they are not safe.

My guess is that there isn't one. I am a size 7 and bought a kids' size 5. That would lead me to believe a kids' 6 is close to a women's 8. I don't believe kids' sizes are available bigger than a 6.

A youth size 7 is equivalent to a women's 9. I wear size 8 and I order a youth 6 and it fits perfectly. Buying Chaco's in a youth size is a big plus, as they are much cheaper.

There is unfortunately no Youth size equivalent to a Women's size 9. A Men's size 7 would be an equivalent, however both Youth and Men's sizes are on a wider size D last than a women's B last- for width.

I couldn't tell you - a woman's 9 would take an adult Chaco - sorry

According to a conversion chart I googled, a big kids size 7 is as close to a women's 9 as you can get -- the size 7 is a little less than a 1/2 inch shorter than a women's size 9. I think it goes to adult sizes after a 7.

an adult size 6 is roughly equivalent to a kids size 8

I am a perfect European size 38 (7 to 7 1/2 U.S.) and the Youth size 5 are perfect for me in both Chaco and Teva brands. You just need to be careful that when shopping STP that you are looking at Youth sizes and not Kids. For the majority of people, I believe that a Youth 6 would work for those who wear a Women's size 8 and Youth 4 would work for those who wear a Women's size 6 to 6 1/2.
