It's no secret that Chaco's developed a loyal, almost cult-like following among hardcore outdoor enthusiasts and casual wearers seeking a sturdy, dependable sandal. Building off this legacy, the Chaco Men's Z/1 Classic Sandal delivers the timeless aesthetic and rugged durability that's legendary among hikers, river paddlers, and everyday wearers.
Pull-through adjustable webbing straps provide a fine-tuned fit. The dependable ladder lock buckle cinches tightly to prevent the straps from slipping during active use. The textured polyurethane footbed prevents your feet from sliding around, especially on humid summer days where perspiration is inevitable.
Speaking of perspiration, the footbed's antimicrobial treatment keeps funky odors at bay when you're trekking across tropical jungles, alpine streams, and searing deserts alike. Plus, the LUVSEAT midsole cradles your every step with its ergonomic design and plush polyurethane material. And allowing it to excel over rugged terrain and slippery shorelines, the ChacoGrip rubber sole features 3. 5mm lugs that grip tenaciously across trails and coastal surfaces.
Chaco continues to be the standard for rugged outdoor sandals that can handle pretty much anything you throw their way. The Chaco Z/1 Classic, with the new ChacoGrip outsole, lives up to the name. Be careful, though: you may end up with more than one pair.Read Full Gear Review
