Chacos: The Sandals That Do Everything

Until this summer, I was a Teva girl.

Chacos seemed bulky and heavy, and the arch always seemed to hit me in the wrong place. But I was tired of my feet sliding around in my sandals. I wanted something sturdy -- something I could use for hiking, for fording rivers, for scrambling up rocks.

So a few months ago, I bought a pair of ZX/2 Classics.

It took about a week for me to get the straps adjusted just right, but once I did, I was in love. These sandals stay put on my feet, grip well, and are stable enough that I can even wear them backpacking. 

They are sandals that will take you just about anywhere, and they are 100-percent worth it.
