Chaco Giveaway

Mark Paigen started "Gecko" Sandals in 1989 in his home in Paonia, Colorado. His vision to create the ultimate sport sandal quickly took off. He changed the company name to Chaco Sandals in 1995 to avoid confusion with other companies. Since the beginning the focus has been on high quality sandals that perform well in the water, on the trails or anywhere adventure takes you.

Chaco Sandals provide excellent fit, they are long lasting and the company offers to repair old pairs of sandals. These sandals really are awesome. Don't take my word for it, check out this review from #TeamSierra contributor, Amelia Mayer:

Chaco Review 

Amelia says, "I love the feel of the sole under my foot - uber comfortable with no slippage when my feet get wet. They are very light, but have enough of a footbed to keep things comfortable."
