What is the Chaco LUVSEAT™?

Built into every pair of Chacos, the unique LUVSEAT platform is derived from a simple idea: your footwear should properly align and comfortably support your entire body.

We shape our LUVSEAT to cradle every bone and muscle in your foot and intelligently formulate the LUVSEAT materials, including premium polyether polyurthane (PU), to provide genuine comfort that lasts. Acknowledged by the APMA, the LUVSEAT platform sustains your natural anatomy and ensures superior long‐term performance!


How We Developed The Chaco LUVSEAT™

With the assistance of a certified pedorthist, Gerhard Rill, OSM, CPed, we designed the contours of our footbed to control pronation and maximize performance.

To absorb shock, the foot naturally pronates (flexes and rolls). Overpronation occurs when the foot rolls too far inward, resulting in stress on the muscles and tendons of the foot. Nearly 80% of the population overpronates, and this stress can radiate through the body. The Chaco LUVSEATTM footbed controls overpronation and ensures a supported, comfortable stride in any activity.

As a result, has been awarded the Seal of Acceptance by the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA). The APMA Seal of acceptance is intended to raise consumer awareness by identifying products of exceptional quality that are manufactured with comfort, health, and safety in mind. 

What's Your Size?

The correct Chaco fit begins with selecting the right shoe size for your feet. If it fits great, it will feel great. If you are uncertain of your shoe size, visit your local footwear store—they'll measure your foot size, width and arch length, all important factors when selecting footwear.

Sandals are available in whole sizes only. Shoes are available in half sizes. Widths are also available on a select number of styles, please look for the width mark to find those styles with widths.

Note: The most important aspect of Chaco fit is that the footbed contours fit your arch comfortably. We highly recommend being fitted by a professional store employee.
