In 1989, a Colorado rafting guide had a vision: To create the ultimate footwear for outdoor adventures in and out of water. He gave it a symbol — the gecko — because of their ability to adapt and thrive in nearly any environment. Then he gave it a name, Chaco.
Versatile, durable, and performance-ready, our iconic Z/Sandal changed expectations for what a sandal could do.Find Your Z
Adjustable, pull-through straps wrap around the foot for a secure and customized fit on every foot.
Contoured arch support provides incredible all-day comfort to prevent muscle fatigue.
Sticky rubber outsoles provide grip and wet traction for any terrain.
From toe loops to no toe loops, single straps to double, we have a Z for every need.
Repair. Reuse. Rechaco.
Our sandals are built to last. But after years of travels, trails, and streams, they may need a little TLC from our ReChaco repair program. Based in our Michigan factory, our repair team can resole outsoles, replace straps and buckles, adjust the length of straps, and consult on cleaning and care. Because the most sustainable products aren't disposable — they're repairable.Learn More
