Fit for Adventure™ since 1989.

Chaco starts with

In 1989, Colorado whitewater river guide, Mark Paigen set out to solve a problem. Needing rugged footwear that would hold on to his foot and not be swept away in rapids, the “Z” sandal – named for its signature adjustable crossing straps that passed through the midsole – was born.

The idea worked and other adventurers quickly caught on, realizing Chaco sandals were what they had always hoped for – a secure, comfortable piece of footwear that would take them anywhere.

Since that moment 28 years ago, the Z sandal line has evolved with even more robust arch support, new durable materials, and unique strap configurations.

Worn literally around the world, the Z sandal is an iconic, inspiring product that connects millions of people together today.
