You are Chaco!
Chaconians are our pride and joy! They pound pavement, trails, and waves. They teach, reach, and perform. They're people who trust their Chacos, and we're honored to support them.
jasminechiuThis past summer, I studied abroad in Shanghai. The city was incredible-- I learned so much about the Mandarin language and rich international culture. This photo was taken on the lower clear balcony of the Oriental Pearl Tower, probably the most recognizable building of Shanghai's cityscape. I am 863 feet up in the air! Having a 360 degree view of the city made me realize how lucky I was to be there. Now is the time to see China in its exceptional growth period.
AEBernalMy name is Ashley Bernal. I am a Colorado native, and with that territory, I have grown up as an outdoor and adventure enthusiast. My idea of fun includes rafting, paddleboarding, kayaking and fishing on the Colorado River. Professionally, I get to hike for a living as a NPS Environmental Educator. My passions for bouldering, biking, yoga, nature photography, travel, camping across the U.S. and fire-tending always require a good pair of both commuting and activity shoes. It's important for me to consume versatile gear that is quality and created to suit...show more
Rocker emilygantnerThis summer I got the opportunity to take five fifteen year old girls to Killarney Provincial Park in Ontario, Canada for two weeks. We canoed and portaged all through out the park in our chacos and came out of the park stronger, confident, and with chaco tans lines for days. Couldn't have asked for a better experience and life long memories to share. Thanks Chaco for helping create these memories!!!
Rocker capplegateThe weekend before Trail Ridge Road in Rocky Mountain National Park was to open in May 2014, a friend and I decided to walk up to Forest Point. It was a bit chilly as you can see, but I was determined to take the Chacos with me on this adventure. In the background you can see Rocky Mountain National Parks highest peak, Long's Peak which stands at over 14,200 feet.
Rocker jessicajnhThis summer we had our first "real" camping trip with our 3 year old daughter. 2 whole nights many hours from home..and we survived!! We depend on our chaco's for everything and she has been wearing them for the last 2 summers. We love Chaco's and definitely own more than necessary, but keep adding to the collection. If too many chaco's is wrong, we definitely don't want to be right!
Srisen92He told me to put something comfortable on and to be ready to walk. I was happy to have my Chacos on when I realized we were hiking to a lookout point. After our trek to the top, he popped the question!
klaroyThis lake is special in my heart. It is located in Breckenridge, Colorado at about 13,000 feet. In the past 9 months I have skied over this lake, swam in the lake, and the water that is in the lake used to be snow that I skied on. Its beauty is overwhelming. I had to stop and take a picture in my chacos because it captured my favorite things: mountains, water, chacos, colorado, and skiing (kinda).
Rocker @rob__dayI feel like my kids are the coolest. This is my 5 year old son flyfishing. He asked for Chaco's for his birthday last month even though he knew that would be his main gift and he had to have them over toys and other things on his list. He hasn't taken them off since. Definitely a proud moment.
easttj72My wife and I are in Krabi, Thailand for a vacation of fun in the sun. Our chacos decided to come to. How can you possible go on a trip and leave your best hiking sandals behind. We had a great trip. Lots of sun and sand with the occasional hike through the jungle. Best trip ever. This picture was taken on a day of island hoping. Enjoy.
LMoyerSunrise at 10,023 feet on top of the Volcano, Haleakala in Maui Hawaii! This pictures was perfectly captured as my silhouette soars above the clouds! It's very subtle but you can see my chaco toe strap slipped off in mid air, however no other sandal would have stabilized this landing!!
Rocker Rub Some Mud On ItFor the second time within the past month I've been able to visit the Subway, one of my favorite hikes in Zion National Park. I wore my second pair of Chacos this time and tried to get an epic shot showing how Chacos are the only way to go when adventuring.
Rocker BarefootJonHey, my name is Jon and I’m a Chaco-wearing adventurer living in Philadelphia, PA. This summer I rented a van and explored the Southwest- experiencing some of the traditional spots like Sedona, Zion National Park, and Bryce Canyon. While hiking near Phoenix, AZ on the first day of my trip I noticed that the past 5 years of adventure had left the soles of my Yampas quite bald and I was having trouble keeping traction in the dusty environment. I figured I’d check out the selection of Chacos the next day when I stopped in an outdoors shop in Sedona ...show more
Rocker tayschacsThis summer my boyfriend and I went backpacking at Garden of the Gods in Southern Illinois. We had a great time chilling, enjoying what little free time we had this summer, and overjoyed we could spend it in the woods.
Rocker thawksIn front of the protective rails of the Lower falls in Yellowstone National Park, my mom and I perilously perch upon the rocks watching over 60,000 galloons/sec of water flow below us. Our Chacos never left our side the entire trip.
jefffrancoMy story is simple. Me and three of my closest friends decided to take a spur-of-the-moment excursion from Austin, TX to Los Angeles, CA. Along the way we made stops in New Mexico and Arizona - soaking in the beauty of the wild west and admiring the great outdoors. Aside from my 1998 4-Runner, my three best friends, and miles of open road, all I needed was one final thing - my trusty and ever-so-comfy Chacos!
thomaemaddyI am a young adult traveling across the country (1700 miles) to my dream school in Bozeman, MT. I have gotten to see so many beautiful things, but NOTHING has compared to the beauty of the Badlands Nat'l Park near Wall, South Dakota. I have been rocking the Chacos the whole trip (of course, no surprise there) and my whole summer, but summer is coming to an end, so I am loving the fact that I can end it in my favorite shoes.
Rocker vkleflerEnjoying the last days of summer out at Rocky Gap, my favorite place to camp and explore as a child, and now a wonderful retreat as an (almost) adult. Thankful these days for laughter, sunsets, campfires, still waters, soul-friends, and futures we cannot yet see.
Rocker thecapybaraWhen my family set out for a week at the beach, I knew I couldn't let my hard -earned chaco tan fade into oblivion. So, I created my version of the nonexistent barefoot z's -- all the style, all the tan! My barefoot chacos are all the rage among my chaco friends, and now my tan is better than ever.
Rocker Kelsey Angelotta2014 Spirit of Summer Photo Contest 1st Runner Up Chacos, sand between the toes, and a sunset at Horseshoe Bend of the Colorado River made me fall in love with the colors of the desert all over again. Thanks Chacos for always being a part of my journey!
Pro KimberlyCheyenneWith a group from SCORE International, we traveled to a Wounaan village in Gamboa, Panama! After hanging out and talking with the kids for a bit, an epic game of soccer began. With mud past our ankles and mercy from the locals, we actually managed to score a few goals!
Pro KimberlyCheyenneAt 7 o'clock on a Thursday morning, we began our adventure to the Parara Puru tribe on the Chagres River in Panama. After a two-hour van ride and a thirty-five minute canoe ride, we finally reached the beginning of our hike--a small sandy inlet! Our guide (one of the men from the tribe) led us through and over sand, dirt, rocks, and boulders. Then, the trail opened up into a beautiful hidden waterfall with a swimming hole; it was magical! This was one of my favorite moments during my three month journey. I don't know what I would have done without my Chacos!
Rocker Jessy2014 Spirit of Summer Photo Contest Grand Prize Winner I spent my summer farming in Ireland, climbing and surfing along the way. Locke spent his summer exploring the west coast of the US by pedal, from Sequim to Arcata. It had been over two and a half months since we'd seen one another when we both returned home to Missoula, Montana. Our smile lines were deeper, our bodies refreshed and our minds full of even more questions than before. We drove north to Glacier National Park only a few days after returning home, longing for the rugged comfort of fam...show more
Rocker rocktownsarahA family member asked me what I would like as a graduation present. I quickly replied, "Chacos". "Chacos?", they replied. "You want sandals?". Chacos are not just sandals, they are the armor on your feet as you begin new adventures. As a recent graduate of James Madison University, I am going to need all the armor I can get with my new adventures before me. I took my new pair of Chacos to Bermuda with me this past summer. Quickly falling in love with this island, I was able to snap this picture near the beach on one of my walks.
