Chaco ZX1

These sandals from Chaco use their clever pull-through continuous strap system, ensuring a comfy fit. The feminine design of the plain webbing straps is great, while the footbed grips your feet and supports your arches well. The soles grip well, especially in the wet, and dry quickly. Straps provide support and stability even when immersed in water, but don’t give much protection on uneven terrain.

Verdict: Feminine sandals, especially suited to those with narrow feet or high arches. They grip well, especially when wet, although the narrow straps make them less suitable for uneven ground.
