I typically wear a 9 in Keens, a 38 R in birkenstock Arizona's and a 39 R in birkenstock Boston's. I ordered a 9 R and a 9 W in this shoe, the length fit perfectly. Chaco's seem to be made for a narrow foot but I was still able to wear them and didn't see a whole lot of difference between the wide and regular widths and kept both the hipthong R and the Z/1 W. It doesn't feel as good as my birkenstocks but does have good arch support, much better than keens and it is a good choice for wet conditions when you can't wear your birks.

I found this shoe to be a good fit for my feet. I wear an 11 and have a very narrow foot. I was worried that the base would be too wide, but I found it to be a good fit. They are highly adjustable and the straps really made my feet feel securely supported. I wore these while hiking up the Bright Angel Trail out of the Grand Canyon from Pipe Creek and the only issue I had was when I got some sand between my feet and the straps and ended up with some chafing.
