A sad day.
These are my dear chacos that replaced my very first pair (which I bought in 99' and wore all over India, but broke when I adjusted the strap to accommodate for my swollen feet during my first pregnancy). I just don't have great luck, because these broke rather unexpectedly on our most recent camping trip. I am sending them in for repair and hoping for better luck...
I am a diehard Chaco fan and they are all I wear, rain or shine, heat and yes, I've worn them in the snow many a time!!!
