I honestly do not like to wear shoes and generally wear chaco sandals all the way through the winter regardless of snow and rain. I hesitantly ordered these and I absolutely love them. I have had them for about three weeks now and have not put on my sandals since. They are extraordinarily comfortable out of the box and after a long 17 mile hike on the A.T., I managed to come away blister free, which is a rarity for me and new shoes. I have every intention of purchasing another pair as soon as these wear out. I highly recommend these kicks to all those fellow chaco sandal wearers out there. I ordered one half size up from my normal chaco fit and with heavy wool socks on, they still fit like a glove. Thanks Chaco!
