About Chaco®

Born on the river in 1989, Chaco builds premium footwear and accessories for outdoor-minded people. What started as sandals for river guides has evolved into an array of footwear: sandals, shoes and boots that all deliver Chaco’s uncompromised support and comfort, no matter where you roam. Every Chaco shoe features the LUVSEAT™, a uniquely contoured platform that properly aligns and supports your foot and body – supporting a lifetime of adventure through healthy alignment. Recognizing this health benefit, the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) awarded its Seal of Acceptance to all Chaco footwear styles; The intention of the APMA Seal is to raise awareness by recognizing exceptional-quality products manufactured with comfort, health, and safety in mind. Combining these lifelong health values with a passion for the outdoors, Chaco is, simply, “Fit for Adventure”™.
