It’s their versatility that’s made Chaco such a favorite among outdoor enthusiasts. Their logo is the gecko, a tough little critter who can survive in a wide range of environments. The brand was started in 1989 by a Colorado rafting guide who wanted well-crafted footwear that endures river sports, hikes, road trips and pretty much whatever life throws your way. 

 Adjustable straps ensure the sandals stay on your foot, while the arch support adds comfort and the sticky rubber outsole provides grip for walking on slippery river rocks. They’re stylish too, and we love to rock them with socks for that gorpcore flair.
