Chaco Sandals

Born on the River

In 1989, a Colorado rafting guide had a vision: To create the ultimate footwear for outdoor adventures in and out of water. He gave it a symbol — the gecko — because of their ability to adapt and thrive in nearly any environment. Then he gave it a name, Chaco.

Life comes from the river

Since our earliest days as the go-to sandal for rafting guides, Chaco has always been a solution to a problem: keeping feet secure and steps confident in moving water, whether rivers, rapids, or waterfalls.

Getting to the beach is our day at the beach

When it comes to coastal life, our sights are set on those isolated stretches of sandy paradise found by taking the road less traveled. Having the place to yourself turns a regular beach day into an unforgettable experience. And getting there is half the fun.

Brews and shoes

Chaco knows mountain town living. From days packed with action to late nights with friends, it's that intersection of style and performance for the adventurer's everyday.
