Chacos is in a league of its own as far as hiking sandals are concerned. The humble shoemaker’s latest pair — the Bodhi — brings the typical performance specs we’ve come to expect while shedding a chunk of the weight, deeming it a great choice to wear this season.
The sandals weigh a mere 9.56 ounces, which is nearly half as light as the Chacos’ Z/1 classic sandals, giving them a sleek, minimalist look alongside their outsole’s 3mm lug depth. The latter provides optimized traction on the trails, although it’s far less noticeable than the lugs that appear on your average pair. These elements are neighbored by the brand’s signature pass-through jacquard webbing and adjustable toe loop for maximum security.
The webbing material is composed of fully recycled polyester courtesy of RePreve. Plus, you can take them to Chacos’ repair location for an easy fix in case the flip-flops get too damaged, deeming them a sustainable choice through and through. For comfort’s sake, Chacos’ proprietary outsole paves the way for maximum traction, while a podiatrist-approved footbed from LUVSEAT provides much-needed comfort.
If you need some easy-going sandals to rock before the fall starts, we recommend jumping on this new pair fast. Chacos’ new Bodhi Sandals are available on its web store in 3 colors — Orange Rust, Storm Blue, and Black — for $100.
