Whether you are summiting your local peaks, taking a casual stroll to the store, or want an all-around daily driver, we have options. Everyone has a different preference for showing off their toes, covering them up, or rocking a full on boot, so let’s take a look at which Chaco you need to tackle your daily movement.

Best Sandals for Hiking


When it comes to taking on those switchbacks, we always revert back to our trusty best seller, the Z/1. This is the silhouette that comes to mind if you have ever been introduced to our brand, and there is good reason. Fully adjustable for a customized feel, the Z/1 is designed to give you all day support, while seamlessly tightening to stay snug on a wide variety of foot types. The custom fit and grippy rubber outsole are ideal for dry trails, yet the stream crossings are no problem either due to completely waterproof materials.

Gnarly Approach

If you are aiming to take on more intense terrain, the Z/2 has the same footbed and traction with an added toe loop that is ideal for downhills. These can take a serious beating, and you can rock any color you like with fully customizable straps and buckles using the MyChacos customization tool!


Looking for something lighter? Take a peek at the Bodhi! Simplified and stripped down, this sandal has all of the things you are looking for in a performance sandal with a lightweight design. The adjustable toe loop makes up for the minimal straps, so you won’t have to compromise when it comes to a secure fit from heel to toe. And, wet conditions don’t stand a chance against the 3 mm lug performance outsole, designed for no slip traction on the mossiest of trails.

Best Sandals for Walking

All Day Comfort

For days off of the trail, you want something comfortable and stylish to sport during errands around town. The Paonia Clog is that go-to slip-on that looks and feels great underfoot. With a low nap, waterproof suede upper, the Paonia has a casual vibe that can be dressed up a bit when needed. You won’t have to worry about all day comfort either, as the footbed is the same as the Z line of sandals, offering that familiar footbed feel that we are known for. Best of all, the neutral colorways go with anything in your wardrobe, making getting out the door a cinch.


Looking for all day comfort, but don’t want a slip-on? Well, the Paonia also comes in three high top silhouettes that are more than ready to tackle the colder months of the year. The Chukka, Chelsea Boot, and standard Paonia give you options for lacing and slide-on styles that match your preference, and they each are able to be dressed up and down depending on the occasion.

Laid Back and Cozy

Walking doesn’t have to be outside either! For the homebodies out there and remote workforce, there is no better option than the Revel. Outfitted with all of the support and durability we pride ourselves on, this slip-on has some serious cozy vibes with a plush fleece liner. Whether you are walking to the kitchen for a snack or chilling out by the campfire after a day of adventure, your feet will thank you.
