Chacos are comfortable, durable and iconic. Men's Chacos and Women's Chacos feature an exceptional, gender-specific fit that matches the anatomy of the foot, from the simplest flip-flop all the way up to Chaco boots. Chances are, if you spend much time outdoors, you've seen people wearing Chaco sandals... probably the Z/1 or Z/2! Chacos feature a patented "LuvSeat" footbed that earned the American Podiatric Medical Association's "seal of acceptance."
While those classic Z1 sandals & Z2 sandals are what most imagine when they think of Chacos, Chacos now come in a variety of forms including sandals, flips, and shoes. This is seriously functional footwear, for those of us that make the most of our outdoor adventures. Chaco sandals are available in many styles, with vibrant colors and different vibram soles to suit your needs; with so many choices, you'll be able to wear your Chacos year-round. Here at Rock/Creek, we certainly live in ours!

The History of Chaco:
Since 1989, when a Gunnison River Gorge guide named Mark Paigen started Chaco, the brand has been synonymous with great fit and excellent durability. Mark's vision was to create high performance sandals for river professionals like himself, while minimizing the environmental impact that his new business would have.
To that end, Chacos are a refreshing alternative in an increasingly-disposable world. Chaco sandals are meant to last for years and years, not just a couple of seasons. The polyurethane footbed of a Chaco sandal won't sag like EVA, contributing to a long and functional life for the sandal; in addition, most Chacos can be re-soled or re-webbed, and Chaco employs a complete "ReChaco" team to perform these repairs. It's all about sustainability, and Chaco also donates generously to a variety of environmental causes.
With superior workmanship and a lifetime warranty against defects, Chacos have become the number one choice for outdoor professionals around the world: river guides, outdoor educators, adventure travelers and more. Fortunately, what works for these most demanding users also works just great for the rest of us!
