I have a lot of coworkers/friends/shipmates that love their Chacos, and I always gave the toe strap a bit of a glare when I saw them.
(I've always preferred Keens for active sandals.)
After my third pair of keens rotted away/became unwearable, I decided to change it up and got a pair of these.
Firstly, I wear these a bit smaller than I do other shoes. About half a size smaller to be precise. Before I ordered them I went into a retailer and tried them on and was surprised by the smaller size, so I would definitely check your size before you order a pair.
Second, the fit. I worse these a few times and at first I regretted ever buying them. The toe strap, as I expected, was weird. It got in my way, tightened up uncomfortably, and I certainly did not like it.
Then I finally figured out that I was wearing them wrong. Too tightly, as a matter of fact. Finally I got used to fitting them correctly and now I basically love them.
They are a small step down from keens and other sandals that are totally slip-on and go, but the feeling of them being mechanically secure to my feet, combined with open air on my skin and a lack of horrible dank enclosed areas perfect for growing fungus makes them a 5.
On that note, they haven't even started to smell yet.
If you've ever worn close-toed sandals like Keens or Vibram 5 fingers, you know the funk of which I speak. It is awful. It never goes away. It is embarrassing. It is unavoidable.
With chacos, the whole sole is exposed. This means that they can be scrubbed adequately, and dried fully. If they never start to stink like other outdoor sandals, I will be very, very happy.
Glad I gave them a try.
Make sure you are getting the right size, and definitely experiment with fittings until you find one that works for your feet.
Also, these are extremely difficult to adjust. I literally had to use a vise grips to adjust them. I read one review where the person used soapy water, and was then able to adjust them. I may have to try that when I get them back from Chaco's repair department.
They are stiff (before break in) and can be a little difficult to adjust (the straps have to be pulled through the sole material) but I expect that by the end of Summer I will have put plenty of miles on mine.
PS I was asked how I could stand the strap around my big toe. Keep in mind that this helps keep your foot from sliding forward when going down hill and is barely noticeable when properly adjusted.
I'M AMENDING THE ABOVE. I wrote this review earlier, and at the time it was a true statement. I didn't give up on the Chacos, and they haven't given up on me. It took a bit of work to break these in, but they're now my favorite summer footwear. I had the Chaco tan lines to prove it, and I'm excited to see their return this summer. I'm happy to add a star to these sandals, and I'll likely buy another pair IF these ever wear out.
