7 Reasons Why You Need Chaco Sandals This Summer

This ‘7 Reasons Why You Need Chaco Sandals This Summer’ post was first seen on Thrifty Nifty Mommy.  While sponsored, as always, all opinions are my own.

Even though we are still technically practicing social distancing here in Minnesota, I’m itching for some summer fun in the sun!  We’ve already started taking family bike rides as the spring weather has been unbelievable this year.  Not only that, I’ve even gotten my first (slight) sunburn last week!  (#LessonLearned)  I have now dug out my sunblock.  But as I look ahead to the upcoming baseball games, family camp, and other fun activities, I’m preparing by gearing up.  With what you ask?  Well, a pair of awesome Women’s ZX/2 Classic Chaco Sandals!

Who Or What Are Chaco Sandals?

In case you’re new to the Chaco world, they are a brand of footwear best known for its product line of adjustable Z-strap sandals for outdoor and water use, often referred to as “Chacos”. The Chaco brand also provides a variety of outdoor-influenced fashion sandals, shoes, flip-flops, boots, and accessories.

7 Reasons Why You Need Chaco Sandals This Summer

I’ll be the first one to admit that a pair of Chaco Sandals is definitely a splurge for me.  However, I have learned over the years that being a Thrifty Nifty Mommy sometimes means investing in better things that will pay off in the long run.  So here are the top 7 reasons I feel like everyone needs a pair of Chacos this summer.


1)  Chaco Sandals Are High Quality And Built To Last

I honestly don’t mind investing in products that are made to last.  Too often these days, that can be a hard feature to find.  So while I’m fully aware that Chaco Sandals are a little expensive, I want to note that they are also built to last.  You won’t have to worry about replacing worn out Chacos any time soon.  Their strong construction is immediately evident and they’re the most durable pair of sandals I’ve owned.

2)  Designed Well

Are you tired of painful feet when wearing shoes or sandals?  Chacos are designed so well that even your pinkie toes will be comfortable.  Their straps are created with a durable fabric that runs through the sole of the sandal, allowing you to easily adjust your straps to fit your feet perfectly.  This makes me extra excited as I broke my (pinkie) toe at the end of last year and it’s STILL not back to normal.  Some days, it’s achy and tender yet but I can still head out in comfort with my Chaco Sandals.

3)  They Go Anywhere You Want To Go

Last year, we attended family camp and had a great time.  The one issue I had, though, was that we needed ‘water shoes’ or sandals at the beach and in the water.  I didn’t have any water shoes and didn’t have time to go shopping,  so I made due with pair of shoes I owned.  However, they kept sliding off in the water!  But the great part about my new Chacos sandals is that they are built for dealing with any type of landscape.  So I can take a hike, take a swim, or even play a game of capture the flag; all-the-while wearing my Chacos with ease this year.

4)  Your Feet Can Breathe

When it comes to summertime and hot weather, feet need some space.  While some shoes confine and create a sweaty environment, Chacos provide a durable sandal that allows feet and toes to wiggle, move, and breathe.

5)  Provide Good Support

Chaco Sandals give fantastic support! — At first, there was a slight break in period since the footbed is firm.  (It can take a few weeks or even month for them to be properly broken in.)  But once I got used to them, I can be on my feet all day without being sore.  The straps and toe loop work together to prevent your foot from moving out of place or causing friction.  Plus, all Chacos feature the LUVSEAT™ footbed with its contoured arch support and overall supportive design making them perfect for all-day wear.

6)  They Offer A Comfortable Wear

The first time I put on a pair of Chacos, I wasn’t sure what to think.   But the longer I wear these sandals, the more I love them.  They are quite comfortable while also helping prevent my feet from becoming too sweaty.  And if it’s a super hot day, I can dip my feet in cool water and keep on trucking.

7)  Chaco Sandals Look Great

These sandals truly look great.  They have a unique style that works well for men, women, and kids.  The variety of color and style options will truly fit every preference as they even offer the option for their customers to make customs.  Whether you’re an adventurer, hippie, or somewhere in between, these shoes allow you to be whoever you want to be.  Wear them on the beach or in the shower, on a hike or to the restaurant; they are so versatile you’ll find yourself practically living in them!

I bought apair of blue Z2 chacos for a ttip to Belize in 2002. I am still wearing them almost daily 75% of the year. They've literally travelled the world with me. Provided stable steps on many unstable terrains. Just ordered another pair of black ones for "dressy" occassions. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

I love they are so strappy. I think it makes they look very pretty even though they are durable
