Not like my 1st pair

Reviewed by Amy the Long Walker from Fort Collins, CO on Monday, February 20, 2012
I loved my first pair of Chacos so much that I didn't hesitate in ordering myself a pair of these over the summer since my others were wearing out (I've had them for 5 years and I'm VERY hard of shoes).

These are very uncomfortable compared to my old pair, which didn't need any break in time. I can't seem to get the straps right, it's always too tight in one place and too loose in another. Because I loved my old ones, I gave them more of a chance than I would have with another brand of shoe. I walk a lot and ended up with my skin rubbed raw in some areas and a sore toe because the loop didn't form to my toe like my old pair.

The material used to make the straps is thicker than the old straps (maybe that's why they're impossible to break in?) and my foot don't seem to fall in the same place on the footbed, which is really uncomfortable.

I will definitely think twice before buying another pair of Chacos and that is disappointing. Why not let a good thing be a good thing?
