Our Story

Born on the River
Our founder, a Colorado rafting guide, starts “Gecko” sandals out of his home in Paonia, CO. His “Ultimate Sport Sandal” focuses on maximum comfort and durability. Geckos, with their suction-padded feet, becomes a symbol for the sandal’s traction in churning whitewater.
One Strap, One Sole
Our first innovation still holds true today. Each pair of Z sandals features webbing straps that wrap around the foot and through the midsole. This adjustment system offers the industry’s only fully customizable fit, and the guarantee that your sandals won’t fall off in the river wild.

Long-lasting Comfort & Support
Our LUVSEATtm Footbed is found in every pair of Chaco Footwear. Its contoured design naturally cradles the foot for healthy alignment and a more efficient stride. But don’t take our word for it. All Chaco styles are certified by podiatrists as being supportive and comfortable for all-day wear.
Designed by You
Our Rockford, Michigan factory is home to your custom sandals. From the choice of straps right down to the stitching, every one of our sandal's parts is customizable. Choose your colors and combinations and let our MyChacos team bring them to life.
