Love Chacos!
November 21, 2011

I have 4 pair of Chacos and purchased purchased these for my boyfriend who was a bit of a skeptic about Chaco sandals but is now a believer. This is a great sandal for the money. Great price with wonderful durability. He wears them all the time from walking the dog to hiking. I believe Chacos to be one of the most durable/comfortable shoes available and look forward to more!

I own Teva sandals for several years. Recently one of my friend suggest me to have a try of Chaco sandals. Then I own this sandals =>PERFECT. Incredibly comfort of the footbeds and straps! However you might need to have a try at any store before getting one because I still get the negative opinion from other friends. If your feet are that sensitive to a new pair of shoes, don't wear the brand new of them for walking of a whole day. Bottom line, Chaco products are excellent and these are no exception. Plus they also provide good services that you can change soles and laces easily.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Cons: Cost

Best Flip Flop Sandals
June 14, 2006

Got a pair of these a few months ago and wear them all the time now. Nothing more comfortable ever. Period.

The Perfect Flip Flop
March 12, 2008

I liked these sandals so much, I had to buy another pair. They are really comfortable and I have a feeling I will get years of use out of them!


Perfect sandal
December 15, 2009

I bought these shoes for my boyfriend and he loves them! They are really comfortable and fashionable too. Also they were delivered really fast.

top notch flip flop!
January 25, 2010

I'm on my second pair of chaco's in 4 years. well worth the price! i wear my sandals everyday from about may/June through sept. these sandals provide the perfect arch support, which makes wearing flip flops less painful over time. and, they are ultra durable.

Durable, comfortable flip-flip
December 29, 2009

I own old school & new school Chaco Z2 sandals. Wanted a simple sandal to wear from the bathroom to bedroom and in the house, around the pool deck, to the grocery store if they were already on my feet, and summer backpacking for non-raging stream crossings & camp footwear. These met my expectations. The soles have never left a mark on any floor surface I've tread upon. More expensive than a "mass marketed box store" sandal? Yes, but if you are visiting this website then you have a more discriminating taste in value than the average Jane/Joe. This sandal has a firmer footbed & supportive arch than those sandals. I am not a "flag waver" but they are an American company who does repairs in the States - support them. Bottom line: these will out-last and out-perform my 20+ year old generic, very comfortable flip-flops. I am a convert.

Supportive Flip Flop
July 16, 2010

Very good footbed, but heavier than most flip flops.

Looks good but not as comfy as I'd hoped
February 01, 2010

I was expecting more from one of my favorite shoe companies. They look fine, but they have somewhat of an awkward sole shape...

November 19, 2010

This is my second pair. My first pair lasted two years before my dogs got a hold of them. I managed to wear them for a while after that before ordering a new pair. Love the green color. Comfortable, durable flip flops.

Pros: Build quality, Lasts forever

Greatest Chaco made
June 16, 2010

The best all over flip flops I ever had. This is my second pair and I love them.

By far the best Flip Flop
October 10, 2006

Have had mine for 5 months and where them all the time. There is no wear on them yet and I use them everyday. Great product.


Not good enough for the $$$
July 14, 2010

I bought this brand due to the recommendations of my fiancee, but I'm a bit disappointed in it. The straps are very tight and have rubbed my feet raw in several places. I would recommend ordering one size larger than normal to accommodate for that.

April 19, 2007

Worth every penny. I would still have mine if my dog hadn't buried the left one somewhere. I'm sure I'll see it again but can't live without them

great comfort

my regular sandal
September 13, 2011

i have been using chaco flip many years and i love it. the sole is hard and durable for rocky situations, yet feels very gentle to my foot especially heel area is just right.

Pros: Build quality, Cons: Cost

Great service
July 05, 2008

The service I received when making my purchase was the best service I've ever received when ordering through mail or online. I had a question several days after the order was placed and was able to call back and get an email directly from the person who took my original order. I needed my sandals by a certain date and she very kindly offered to call Chaco and make sure that could happen for me and it did. I will definitely buy from Altrec again.

A bit pricey for a pair of thongs, but well worth it.

Not just a pair of throw away thongs....Great support in the arch. And I appreciate someone making and selling LARGE SIZES.

Best on the market!
February 06, 2011

I bought these for my boyfriend as a gift and he couldn't have been more pleased. We live in a warm climate where flip flops can be worn all year. They are great in dry and wet environments - and can be washed easily when they are soiled. They don't need to be broken in, and Chaco offers a number of different color options. He has since retired all his other flip flops - these are the only ones he wears. Chacos run on the higher price point, but they are well worth the expense. If you can get them on sale, go for it!

July 09, 2012

Chacos are well worth the price. Had to order this pair for my husband as our son "borrowed" his old pair and loved them so much he won't give them back. They look great with anything and are comfortable for walking. Excellent for travel.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance

These are the ultimate flip flops. I bought these for my husband because he wanted a black pair- but his original brown pair are still going strong after 6 years. Built to last.


Best Flops Ever
August 12, 2010

these are better than what I expected. They are very comfotable for all day were unlike regular flip flops. the arch does take time to get use to.

good flop

Chacos have a good feel to them. Sole is a little harder than other flops but performance makes up for it.

the chaco flip sandals are perhaps the most reliable sandals available. outside of running rather large in size, they are extremely durable, comfortable and easy on th eyes. In addition, as always, they live up to the chaco standard.

Chaco Flip Thongs
August 02, 2011

These are great flip flops, hold up real well, but they seem to run smaller than the pair I bought several years ago. I used to wear 13's but now I am in between a 13 and 14, will go with the 14.

I bought these flops for their arch support. They run true to size and feel great. They are well designed and I can walk and stand longer without my feet getting tired.

Pros: Great design, Build quality

Very nice product
August 14, 2009

These new Chaco flip flops were terrific - - great arch support and comfortable to wear immediately.They are much better than the other Teva and Colombia one I have worn.Best of the customer service at Altrec make it easy to shop with their on-line consultants there to answer and questions about sizes and colors and their delivery is fast and accurate. They are my favorite in-line gear store.

Chaco's stand apart
April 29, 2009

I switched to Chacos nearly 8 yrs ago. I will never return to Teva, Reef or whatever else I've worn in the past. I have taken my Chacos all over Africa; they last, their arch support is superior and they are comfortable.

Good Support
October 08, 2009

Flip provides the arch support I need!

Absolutely the best
June 14, 2007

I have worn chaco sandals since year one. I knew they were the best for multi-purpose supportive sandals but had no idea they could accomplish the same with a flip flop. Look out leather flips.....daddy needs some dinnertime footwear.

Will only purcahse Chaco flips!
April 05, 2010

Simply the best flip flops around. Although a little pricey, they have great arch support and are quite durable. A final plus is that the footbed is easy to keep clean so the flips do not stink over time.

Will only purchase chaco Flip Flops
June 16, 2010

I used to wear Teva Mush exclusively, but after years of running, skiing, etc. my knees are trash and the mush do not provide the support I need in a piece of footwear. The Chaco flips do. I can wear them all day without knee and lower back pain. They do take about a week to break in, but after that they are fantastic. Comfortable, smell free, and arch supportive. Worth the extra price, plus I am positive they will last far longer than the Tevas.

Mine lasted 1 to 1 year and 6 months before.....
November 24, 2006

I am going to purchase another pair tonight since they are SOOO comfortable. For what it is worth I have worn mine, practically every day, not all day but after work and the weekends, for a year to a year and a half. The front strap on my left flip pulled out. I have thought about repair but they are looking a bit worn.

August 02, 2006


July 15, 2007

The strap to the flip flop needs to be a little tighter. I work on a pool deck all day and when they get a little wet my feet tend to slip around a little too much. I've worn better flip flops for less money.

June 27, 2006

Worth the money.

Much more comfortable than cheap flip flops
April 03, 2011

These Chaco Flips are much better than cheap flip flops. Nice footbed. Comfortable to wear for hours. Should last for years. Should give these a try if you like to wear these type of sandals daily.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value

Love this sandal
February 03, 2010

I purchased this sandal for both my husband and son for an upcoming spring break vacation. I LOVE this feels odd at first because it has arch support (unusual for a sandal). Once you are accustomed to it, after a hour or so, it feels great. I own three pairs of these sandals and practically live in them in the summer. They are my go to footwear when it warms up.

Quality flop
May 04, 2010

Love these flip flops. They are a bit pricey but after almost a year of use, they show almost no wear. The webbing is pretty tight around the foot so they stay put. That could be a problem if you have wide/thick feet but I prefer them this way.

Excellent pair of sandals
April 28, 2007

These sandals conform to my feet like no other. They feel great and are extremely comfortable.

Fit a little bit funky
July 08, 2010

Very sturdy, just not for me....more of a platform for the foot instead of wrapping all the way around.

Flippin' Amazing
March 17, 2009

Probably some of the best flops I've ever owned. Chaco is a great brand and makes high quality stuff. I use them everywhere, from riding my bike, to fishing, to hiking, etc. They fit comfortably and mold nicely to your feet. A wonderful buy.

Awesome Shoes
March 21, 2011

The shoes are very comfortable, with much more arch support than other flip flops, and they look like they will last a long time. They are also very easy to clean. I recommend ordering a size up and breaking them in for about a week before any serious use.

Pros: Build quality, Great value

Chaco flip flops
March 06, 2009

Great shoe!! Comfortable from day one--didn't need breaking in. I can wear all day and my feet never hurt. Great value.
