Chaco VS Teva
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Mark from Louisiana on Sunday, August 6, 2017
Haven't owned a pair of Chaco's since college. Replacing my Teva closed toe sandal and saw these on close-out. Loved them right out of the box. Chaco quality and good looks. Comparing to my Teva's they are a little hotter to wear as they are fully closed with mesh vents around the entire sandal. That would be the negative compared to the open-sided Teva's I'm replacing. While a little hotter to wear, the closed design with full neoprene sock around the ankle provides for the barrier to river rocks, etc... that always got under my foot when wearing my Teva's. When paddling, etc... and walking in a river/stream/lake, etc... I routinely had to take my Teva's off to clear wash-in debri. Not so with the Chaco's. Good hybrid sandal/shoe if that is what you are looking for.
