Great Flip Flop
March 26, 2010

Great shoe. This shoe is actually for my 12 year old daughter. She is sold on the comfort of Chacos.

Good Flip-Flop
April 01, 2009

This is a very supportive and well built flip flop. Seem to run slightly small though.


September 14, 2009

This sandal has the support of a shoe. It is approved by podiatrists because it has excellent medial support, which is simply non-existent in other sandals. And yet, with all that great technical support, it is very fashionable and great looking. Chacos are a little more expensive than the average sandal, but you get what you pay for.

good quality
August 03, 2006

I enjoy them, but they do rub my feet a little.

September 19, 2007

I now have 3 pairs of Chaco Flip Flops...I love them. Never thought I could wear flip flops and be compfy! I bought my first pair at the end of last summer...they still look like new.

Chaco flips
May 22, 2011

This is the best actually provides a good arch support. I have bought many of these flips.... I have bought them for both my daughters and for myself in many colors. One of my daughters has RA so the support is great for her falling arches. It is an awe moment for her to put them on her feet. Love Chaco Flips!

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, support

Great arch support and looks great
December 17, 2009

I love these sandals. The arch support takes a bit of getting used to, but with continued use, the shoe seems to mold to your foot. In the summer, these shoes are all I wear. I also love the way they look.

A flipflop to beat the rest
June 02, 2010

These flip flops are truly the best--they provide arch support and are incredibly durable. I bought my first pair four years ago and they're still going, despite the daily beatings they get all summer long. Highly recommended!

Love these flops!
June 03, 2010

Switched from Reefs to Chaco's and wasn't sure if I liked them right away, but once they were "broken in" I wear them all day, every day. Love them!

my feet feel awesome
June 04, 2010

Amazingly comfortable with great arch support. Have them in red/brown, which works well with most of my clothes. Wear them every weekend and will bring them on every trip this summer. I typically wear at least a little heel, so having a pair of real flats took a couple of days to get used to, but no complaints.

The Best Flip-Flop
April 13, 2010

I used to wear another brand, and I still have a plethora of them because I wore them all summer (and much of spring and fall). But I started having feet problems (metatarsalgia), which the orthopedic surgeon and myself blamed at least partly on my "no/low support" previous flip-flops. So, I looked around everywhere, comparing quality, price, etc, and I decided to give the Chavos a try. Love them!!! I've been wearing them for 2yrs this summer, and foot problems are long gone. They are so comfortable and supportive. They are also much better for spending a day on your feet or walking around for a few hours; less foot fatigue and/or discomfort. Also, I have narrow feet, which can make buying sandals a challenge, but these fit great! That being said, my sister (who has normal width feet) wanted to try the Chacos after I raved about them, and she found the fit to be good also. Yes, they're more expensive than some of the "trendy" brands -- but it is so very much worth it. They're more comfortable, just as light-weight, and look great also! I can't say enough good things about them. Highly recommended.

Not a bad flip flop, great support.
September 24, 2006

Don't think I would purchase again, they rub my foot wrong. I wear flip flops constantly, but still trying to get used to these. They are built well and will probably be around for a long time.

December 17, 2009

Great arch support. Durable sole. Extremely comfortable. They fit fairly tight (on my feet) to start with but they loosen up a little. I have three pairs in different colors. I'll never wear any other flip flops again. Love Chaco!

Stylish & Comfortable
May 21, 2008

These are very comfortable for a flip flop, the strap inbetween the toes is fantastic. I have worn them many times now for long distances and no blisters. Very cool color, I just wish these were sold in Canada!

This is my second pair of these - they are wonderful, durable, & supportive! Worth the expense!

Pros: Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance

Fantastic durability
April 05, 2009

I've had my pair for several years and they are my staple summer flips. They look brand new after all this time with zero signs of wear. Definitely the most comfortable flips ever created due to the substantial sole and arch support. Highly recommended!

Excellent Arch Support
May 30, 2008

My daughter and I got these for my wife as a Mother's Day Gift. She really likes the arch support, saying they're a step above other flip-flops. She also commented that the strap between the toes is very comfortable.

Love the Look
June 24, 2008

Just got my chaco flip flops. Love the fit and nice arch support. Strap between the toes is comfortable from the word go. Would recommend to friends.

Summer favorite!
September 14, 2008

This is my second pair of flip thongs and I love them. I hate to wear shoes, but I can wear these for hours and walk miles in them. They are great shoes!

a gift for my mother...
August 16, 2010

My mother enjoys the flips very much. The arch is wonderful though the material does get hot when sitting in the sun (as compared with her last Nike flip flop tat didn't). Nonetheless, it's a good investment.

Good quality flip flop
September 30, 2006

At first the straps on top were way too tight and I didn't think I would like them. I tried wearing them awhile and now they have loosened up and are very comfortable. I like the soles on them, they will probably last a long time compared to most flip flops.

I will never wear anything else!
March 14, 2013

If I could own these in every color, I would. Believe me, i'm getting close too. Chaco has made super supportive foot bed that makes you forget your wearing flips. I could hike all day in these, even on trails. Important to remember is that chaco almost always runs a size large. I wear a size 8 in pretty much every other shoe and sandal but in Chaco I am always a 7.

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

Best Flip-Flop EVER
April 26, 2010

I walk at least 3 miles a day in my Chaco's. They have the best arch support. Would rather wear them than tennis shoes for walk, gardening, etc.

November 09, 2012

I have two herniated discs in my back and have not been able to wear flip flops in a decade.... and now I can. Now granted, I'm not running in these or walking long distances, but it's so nice to have an alternative to regular shoes in the summer. I highly recommend these!

May 10, 2011

Having suffered from plantar fascitis, I was hoping these would be flip flops I could actually wear. So far so good. They have great support. Unfortunately, my puppy liked them too so I will be replacing the pair immediately. I originally bought a 9, and usually wear a 9 or 9 1/2, and may consider moving up to a 10 as they run a little short. (My 13 yr old daughter tried them and now she wants her own pair.).

I live in Chacos in the summer
January 27, 2011

No kidding...I put these on summer mornings and kick 'em off at night. These so comfortable with good (not great) arch support. The only drawbacks, I'd say, is that the sandal doesn't last for more than a season or two and it's pretty pricey for a rubber sandal. I still buy them though.

Pros: Great design, Performance, Ease of use, Cons: Wears quickly, Cost

A new flip flop fan!
July 15, 2010

I never really cared for this flip flop style because I found the thong between my toes irritating. However, I tried the Chaco and was instantly impressed with the arch design, the comfortable feel of the nylon thong, and the lack of the flip flop sound. This will not be my last pair.

Favorite Flips
May 19, 2011

This is my 2nd pair of Chaco thongs, and they are my favorites. The old pair is still in good shape after five years. THey have great cushioning and still look great after all I've put them through. I like the new colored soles, it adds a little spark. I also like the black uppers, if you get it a bit dirty, no one will notice. I was never a flip flop person til I started wearing these, they are very comfortable, and I highly recommend them to anyone.

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

Great arch support & treads. Footbed not durable.
September 06, 2010

I will always love Chaco's arch support. It's perfect for preventing fatigue and helping my fascitis while I walk all day. Only con: the footbed is not very durable. After several months of use this summer, the ball-of-foot area was worn smooth (starts textured) - causing it to squeak with every step! Annoying and uncomfortable. It's the only reason I need to replace these $50 flip flops.


Best Flips Ever!
June 20, 2006

I love these flip flops! The arch support is great, just like other Chaco sandals. The webbing won't pull out on these- I've been wearing mine for over a year and they show very little wear, unlike other brands of flip flops that wear out in a month or so. I'm a 7 1/2 so I sized up to an 8 and they fit nicely.

the best
April 10, 2009

definitely the most comfortable sandals in the world.

Bought as a gift
May 24, 2010

Bought this as a gift for Mother's day. Mom could not be happier with the arch support and apparently my sister keeps trying to steal them!

Love this flip
March 28, 2011

This is my second pair of Chaco Flip Flops. These are the most comfortable flips flops I own. I love the sturdy, but soft soles and they hold up better than any other flip flops I've ever owned. The new fabric options are great and love that the soles have some color now too.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever

Really Great Sandals
September 22, 2006

I have 5 pair of these and wear them every day. I like how they do not make that slapping sound on your feet as most sandals do

September 16, 2009

very comfy foot bed. Top straps are a bit rough. Hopefully they will soften...

June 25, 2007

I love my Chaco's they are the first pair of Chac's I have purchased and they are easy, comfy, stay on, and they do not slap loudly slip around. I will definitely purchase a second pair. The webbing is very secure, and This is of major importance to anyone else who may have had a broken ankle, as I have in the past. This is as secure of a flip as you could find! I am always either a 7 or 7.5, and never know which way to order, because the width can also play a part. My foot is average shaped, and the 7 fits very well..not a lot of soul past toe or behind heel, however not too short so as to stub a toe!

Sandals feel great and offer good support
August 11, 2008

I'd been wearing some flat flip flops and was beginning to have some trouble with my feet; I'm eager to see if the flip thong will help. The initial feel is great.

June 13, 2011

When I first read about these flips, I was uncertain if they would meet my expectations. Well, I have had them a week and worn them almost everyday! They are the most comforatable footwear I own and definitely give my aching feet the support they need! Plus they are good looking. If only they were a bit less expensive, I would buy 10 more pairs.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Cons: Cost

LOVE these shoes!
May 02, 2010

These are my new favorite flip flops! They are a little hard, out of the box, but after wearing them a few times, they have formed to fit my feet perfectly and I LOVE them. I also love the sale price I got on the "zebra aqua" color. Thanks, Altrec!

Amazing fit and comfort combined with great style!
April 28, 2008

These are now my go to slippahs (as they call them in Hawai'i). But seriously I feel comfortable wearing them in the city streets of Manhattan as well as the terrain of the Maine trails. They are comfortable and can be worn for hours without showing any wear. I recommend them!

Great flip flop
May 05, 2011

Was unsure about size when ordering since I wear 8 1/2. Ordered a size 9, had to send it back, too big. Ordered an 8 and it fits great. Best arch support I've found in a flip flop.

Pros: Great design, Build quality

Comfortable and form-fitting

I love my new flip flops! I got them in red. They are very comfortable and fit my high arches well.

Great arch support and stay on your feet

July 17, 2012

I bought my first Chaco sandal 13 years ago. I loved them! I wore them everyday in hot weather at least 8 months a year for 13 years. They have traveled many countries and continents with me. I didn't realize that they had a lifetime guarantee and I recently threw them out because the toe divider came loose. I wish I knew that I could have sent my sandals back to get fixed. Even so, I bought another pair and I am excited to get this particular style back on my feet. Highly recommend! Please note: this style does run small. I wear a 9.5 shoe and need a 10 sandal.

great for fallen arches
July 25, 2011

I bought these shoes a few weeks ago and I have to tell you that I wear a size 9 and I bought a 9. They run a little small. I can wear them but I have no extra room in the back. I really wish they made them in half sizes, as a 10 is too large and they flop on my foot. The one good thing about these shoes is the arch support, I have been having trouble with my knees this last year (58) and when I wear these flip flops my knee pain is gone. When the grand kids want to go to the pool, they are perfect to put on, wear around town, etc. The toe strap takes a little getting used to as it is a bit snug but I am hoping it will stretch with more wear. It is a very well made shoe, and the only draw back is the size.

Cons: Cost

I cannot tell you how these flip flops have saved me! I love flip flops but got PF wearing them.. Since wearing Chacos I am pain free in about a week. I would never have believed a shoe could make the difference, but I am now a believer

extremely comfortable
July 19, 2008

I love the arch, the "snug fit" on my feet and between the toes and the way my feet feel overall when wearing them. They are SOOOO much better than JCrew or any other flip flops I have worn in the past. I have 3 pair right now in different colors and wear them everyday!

walk anywhere
January 03, 2007

These are my all-time favorites!!! Carry a pair in your pack at all times. They saved my feet when I got blisters hiking in the Tetons. No problem on rocky trails. Great arch and sole.

Best flip flop ever
June 30, 2009

This shoe is comfortable, even if worn all day. Also, it doesn't make my size 9 foot look huge. It actually makes my foot appear slightly smaller.

Comfortable Flip flops
September 08, 2009

I was looking for a flip flop that would give me the support I need for my ball of foot pain, and these sandals are very comfortable. The strap between the toes is a little tight, but I'm sure they will give a little in time. The support for my feet is definitely there. They run true to size.

Love them!
November 10, 2010

These are the most comfortable flip flops I've ever worn. I thought my Reef's were comfy, but the Chacos are even better and last a LOT longer. I've worn them daily two summers in a row and there's sort of some scuffing on the sole, but that's it. I usually wear a 7.5-8 and have a fairly narrow foot, and I went with the 8 and they're great.

Chaco Flip Flop

Great Arch Support and very durable You can walk around in these shoes for hours (which is atypical for a thong) A great value!

absolute wonderful flip-flops.........

I bought a pair 2 years ago and have worn them extensively through all seasons until today. They finally gave but are well worth the purchase. I am buying another pair today. I have and would again recommend them to everyone.
