So I bought these out of season; Won’t be wearing them until fall (I live in Indiana). I tried them on when they came and I’m always surprised how light Chacos feel. I was wearing wool socks so the boots felt pleasantly secure. I had Keens before this and they were more lose/the metal hook grommets sometimes caught on each other while walking-ANNOYING. Anyways, I wore those Keens out until the soles had holes and decided to spring for these since I own 3 other Chaco styles (Z2, field boots, katarra spelling?) and have loved all of them. Arches are always sturdy, though the sandals have had the most severe arch of any of the shoes. Always very comfortable!

Amazing boot! - by , May 14, 2020

I absolutely love these boots! For the first time I have a pair of boots that actually fit my feet right and aren't loose around my foot! Not only that, but they have amazing arch support and are super comfortable! Only problem I have is that the laces are a little short, but that's easily fixed. So thank you thank you thank you!

I love these boots and am wearing them right now. In addition to being totally cool looking they have great arch support and great traction. They run a tad big. If I hadn’t ordered them I might have tried a half size smaller just to be sure. I’m in northern Michigan and they are keeping my feet warm!

These comfortable boots are very versatile. I wear them practically everywhere: running errands, walking, hiking and to church. Cute with leggings and jeans. So many people have made positive comments about my boots. They have good traction and fantastic arch support. I live in the Appalachian Mountains and hike in State Parks in the snow and I have found the boots to be supportive and waterproof. I love these boots as much as I love my Chaco sandals!

These boots fit like a glove. I normally wear a size 9, which is what I ordered and they fit perfectly. They have kept my feet warm in below zero temperatures and look cute too!

One boot was weird. - by , Dec 18, 2019
3/ 5 Stars
The boots are warm in the 17 degree weather and were doing great with the 5 inches of snow. However by day 3 the right boot started cutting into my Achilles tendon, causing a blister. This is a fairly common thing for me, so I'm not surprised, just a little bummed.

Love them, super comfy, not waterproof - by , Dec 05, 2019
4/ 5 Stars
These are great boots so far after wearing almost daily for a couple months. Super comfortable with very little breaking in. I usually wear a 7 or 7.5 and sized down to a 7, wearing a medium thick wool sock. They fit like a glove, are very lightweight, and have great traction for scrambling around off trail. The coldest I’ve worn them is around 30 degrees, and with a medium wool sock were warm enough while I was on the move. My only gripe is that they aren’t waterproof, as noted by other reviews. Water repellent perhaps, but definitely leak and the leather absorbs water if you are out in the elements. I have definitely had wet socks after walking in the rain. I applied snow seal after my latest wet sock day, so will see if there’s an improvement, but don’t count on them if you are needing something that is truly waterproof.

Great Boots with Support - by , Dec 02, 2019

I was looking for a pair of boots to wear for winter vacations/after skiing and just general cold, rainy weather that we have here Houston during the winter months and I these are the best. These are the only brand of boots I tried (and I tried them all) that had any kind of arch support and they are extremely comfortable. It did take about a half day of walking to break them in (a little stiff around my ankle but not painful). We just spent a week in the snow in Denver and my feet never got wet once. I received several compliments, so that's a nice bonus too. They are well made and it looks like they will last so I'm excited about this as well. Thank you for making such a great shoe!! I'm already looking to buying another style. :)

Waterproof for sure, but... - by , Nov 27, 2019

Bought these last winter, but today is the first time I’ve worn them to shovel snow. Although I appreciate that they’re waterproof, my toes froze!! And the temperature never dipped below 32. I bought them specifically because we live in snow country. And I hate when my feet are cold. But at least they stayed dry.

Great Boots! - by , Sep 23, 2019
5/ 5 Stars
These are the best boots! I have bone spurs and were concerned about the toe fit but these boots weren’t too narrow for me. I wear them hiking and for just every day. I noticed in these my back hurt less, my feet hurt less, and I was able to stand for longer amounts of time. Living in the PNW they work great with rain. One day out hiking I even stood in a river just to see and NO WATER in the boot even submerged. They go with just about any outfit. My only wish is that I could wear them year round. They do scrunch around the ankle and rub but I formed callouses so it’s not a problem. If you’re contemplating these, try them!
