Chaco (32 products)
When Chaco says the company was "born on the river," you might think they are metaphorically referring to how well their sandals hold up, in both wet and dry terrain. But the company is actually being a bit more literal in making that claim.
Back in 1989, a Colorado rafting guide began to formulate a vision to create the ultimate footwear for adventures in and out of water. It's a concept that was surprisingly unique at the time. He gave the concept a symbol--the gecko. The choice made sense. Geckos are creatures that effortlessly adapt and thrive, no matter the environment. But with both concept and symbol in mind, it was time to give the future company a name. And that is how Chaco, the brand, was launched.
If you browse our line of Chaco footwear, you'll soon see why they have grown to become best selling sandals. Take the Chaco Men's Z2 Classic. Don't let its handsome design fool you into thinking these sandals are restricted to walks in the park or down to the corner ice cream parlor. Of course, if that's your vibe, feel free to take the Z2 Classic along for the ride. They won't disappoint and you'll look great sporting them.
But Chaco designs were launched with more than city sidewalks in mind. The company's footwear was designed by raft guides, starting in the late 80s. The Z2 Classic represents Chaco's original iconic sandal, built for performance in and out of the water, and constructed with materials meant to last. These sandals are engineered with Chaco's contoured LUVSEAT arch-support, offering the wearer healthy alignment with a corrective footbed that gained acceptance from the American Podiatric Medical Association. Also--it just feels good, even when you're going the distance. Get in on the secret that raft guides, counselors, adventurers and all sorts of outdoor enthusiasts already know about.
And, if you're looking to buy from a company that shares your commitment to sustainability and environmental responsibility, rest assured you can enjoy Chaco footwear with a clear conscience. Their footwear is built to be durable, so it lasts long past the time when other brands would have ended up in the landfill. And, after years and years of travel, trailblazing and romping through streams, Chaco wants you to know that they are ready to give your favorite sandals a bit of TLC through the ReChaco repair program. Part of its sustainability strategy to reduce what goes into the world's landfills, Chaco's Michigan factory is home to its repair program, ReChaco. Here, repair teams can resole outsoles, replace straps and buckles, even adjust the length of straps, and more. They'll also help you out with advice on cleaning and care of your Chaco footwear.
Chaco knows the best products simply aren't disposable--they're sustainable! In their case, that means repairable. So, check out our complete line of Chaco footwear and find out for yourself why they are some of the best selling sandals you'll come across--whether you're on dry or wet ground.
