Ever since being founded back in 1989, Chaco has always been a pioneer when it comes to making comfortable footwear for the outdoor adventurer. They have always had a commitment to creating quality sandals that can keep you comfortable all day (and stay on your feet), no matter where you are walking. Due to a wide variety of sandals and features, Chaco isn’t just a comfortable piece of footwear for walking all day outside, it also has a number of benefits for your feet, and many people use Chaco to ease heel and foot pain caused by too much time spent in other, less supportive footwear.
When Mark Paigen first started making Chacos, he consulted with a Pedorthist who advised him on how to design the sandal with the right arch support to keep the foot secure in the footbed. After incorporating these new concepts from the collaboration with the Pedorthist, Chaco was one of the first brands to have a sandal with arch support that was approved by the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA). In fact, every single style of Chacos is approved by the APMA and certified not just to be good for your feet for intermittent use, but they are also comfortable and supportive enough that Chacos are good for walking all day.

A Sandal for Every Foot
While they weren’t originally designed to be more than a comfortable, durable, outdoor sandal, Chacos have become a highly sought out sandal from those who experience regular foot pain from less supportive footwear. In fact, podiatrists recommend Chacos for those with plantar fasciitis to help reduce foot and heel pain from the ailment, due to the arch support and high heel cups. As we mentioned above, Chaco is also highly popular for those with both flat feet and high arches. But you will, of course, need to find the right model to fit your needs:
What sandals are best for plantar fasciitis or high arches?
