...as with some other reviewers, I find the heel wants to slip up a little (have only worn around house for 20 min. so far). Hoping this resolves with use and continued lace tightening. Otherwise - and as with other Chacos - comfort and build quality are top-notch. Love the insoles which offer just enough arch
support and cushioning without being too hard or too soft.
Insane sale price on STP.
Only complaint, if you could call it that, is the yellow in the pics of the "Tar" shoe is actually more of a fluorescent yellow-green, not a true gold-yellow like the photos. I did not get an alternative (low-key) color set of laces like with other Chacos, but at this pRice, I can afford to buy a set of grey or brown laces, or just keep the safety-yellow ones ;-)

Nice, comfortable shoes. The quality appears up to Chaco standards (I've only worn them a few weeks). The only downside is that my heels don't suck in well and will move up and down. This is not a problem with day to day wear but if I wanted to hike in them I might end up with blisters.
