Chaco Sizing

Figuring out your Chaco size can be difficult, especially if you’re ordering online. In this article, we’ll walk you through the steps of how to measure your foot and convert those measurements into your Chaco size. We’ll also give you a few tips on what to do if you’re between sizes.

How to measure your foot

Use a ruler or measuring tape to measure the distance from the back of your heel to the end of your longest toe. This is your foot length and will help you determine what size Chacos will fit you best!

Find your size on the size chart

Chaco sizing can be a little tricky because their shoes don’t necessarily fit true to size. In general, you want to order your Chacos one size up from your regular shoe size. So, if you wear a women’s 8 shoe, you would order a women’s 9 Chaco.

If you’re still not sure what size to get, you can always consult the Chaco size chart. This is especially helpful if you’re between sizes or if you have wide feet. To find your size on the chart, simply find your measurements and then match them up with the corresponding Chaco size.

Buying Chacos

Chacos are an essential piece of gear for many outdoor activities. They are comfortable, durable, and offer good support for your feet. Chacos come in a variety of sizes, so it is important to choose the right size for you. In this article, we will talk about how to measure your foot and choose the right size Chacos for you.

Considerations when buying Chacos

When you’re trying to decide what size Chacos to buy, there are a few things you should keep in mind. First, consider the width of your foot. Chacos are available in both regular and wide widths, so make sure you get the right size for your foot. Second, think about how you’ll be wearing your Chacos. If you’re planning on doing a lot of hiking or walking in them, you’ll want to make sure they fit snugly and won’t slip off your feet. Finally, take into account the length of your foot. Chacos come in both full-size and half-size options, so be sure to pick the right one for you.

Now that you know what to look for when buying Chacos, it’s time to start shopping! You can find a great selection of Chacos at REI or on Amazon.

Decide what style of Chacos you want

Chaco makes several different types of shoes, so it is important to decide which type you want before you begin looking for a pair. The main types of Chacos are:
-Hiking boots
-Casual shoes

After you have decided which style of Chacos you want, the next step is to determine what size you need. Chaco sizes run from XS to XXL, and the size chart is available on their website. If you are unsure of your size, it is best to go to a store and try on a pair.

Buying Chacos online

When you’re buying Chacos online, it’s important to know your size. Chacos come in whole sizes, so if you’re a half size, you should order the next size up. They also come in widths: narrow (for women), regular (for men), and wide (for men with larger feet).

If you’re not sure what size to get, you can use the sizing chart on the Chacos website. Just enter your foot measurements and it will recommend a size. Or, you can always call customer service and they will help you out.

When you’re ordering Chacos online, be sure to read the return policy before you make your purchase. Some retailers will allow you to return or exchange your Chacos if they don’t fit, but others will not. And, even if a retailer does allow returns, they may charge a restocking fee. So, it’s always best to be sure of your size before you buy.

Wearing Chacos

Chacos are a type of shoe that can be worn in a variety of situations. They are comfortable, stylish, and come in a variety of sizes. The size of Chacos that you should get depends on a few factors, such as your foot size, the width of your feet, and how you plan to use them. Let’s take a closer look at each of these factors.

How to break in your Chacos

Chacos are great sandals that you can wear anywhere, but they can be a little uncomfortable at first. The key to breaking in your Chacos is to do it gradually. Here are a few tips:

-Wear them around the house for short periods of time at first.
-Start with shorter walks or hikes and gradually increase the distance.
-If your feet start to hurt, take a break and try again later.
-Try wearing them with thicker socks at first to help reduce friction.
-Once you’ve broken them in, be sure to care for them properly by cleaning and drying them after each use.

How to care for your Chacos

Chacos are sandals that can be worn for a variety of activities, from hiking to kayaking to just hanging out around town. They’re comfortable, easy to get on and off, and they have a great reputation for being durable. But like any piece of gear, they need to be properly cared for if you want them to last. Here are a few tips on how to do that:

-Wash them regularly: Dirt and grime can build up on the straps and footbed, so it’s important to wash them off after each use. The best way to do this is with soap and water. Just scrub them with a brush (to avoid getting the straps wet) and then rinse them well.

-Treat the footbeds: The footbeds are made of a material called EVA foam, which can break down over time if it’s not properly cared for. To extend the life of your Chacos, treat the footbeds with a UV protectant spray every few months. This will help prevent the foam from drying out or breaking down.

-Store them in a cool, dry place: When you’re not wearing your Chacos, make sure to store them in a cool, dry place. This will help keep the straps from getting brittle and the footbeds from breaking down.


If your chacos are too big, they might fall off when you’re hiking or doing other activities. If they’re too small, they might be uncomfortable and cause blisters. The best way to find the perfect size chacos is to try them on in the store. But what if you’re buying them online?

My Chacos are too big/small

If your Chacos are too big, they may feel sloppy or may slip off your feet while you are wearing them. If your Chacos are too small, they may feel uncomfortable or may be difficult to get on and off.

To troubleshoot this issue, first determine whether you need a smaller or larger size by following the steps below:

-If your Chacos are too big, you can try one of the following:
-Wear thick socks with your Chacos to fill up some of the extra space.
-Tighten the straps as much as possible.
-Put moleskin on your foot where the Chacos are slipping.
-Try a smaller size.

-If your Chacos are too small, you can try one of the following:
-Loosen the straps.
-Buy a larger size.

My Chacos are uncomfortable

There are a few things that could be causing your Chacos to be uncomfortable:
-The straps are too tight: make sure you can slide a finger between the strap and your skin
-The footbed is too narrow: your foot should not hang over the edge of the footbed
-The footbed is too short: your toes should not be hanging over the edge of the footbed
-You need a size smaller/larger: try a different size Chaco

My Chacos are falling apart

If your Chacos are falling apart, it may be time for a new pair. Chacos are made to last, but with regular use, they will eventually need to be replaced. The best way to determine if your Chacos are ready for retirement is to check for signs of wear and tear. If the straps are fraying or the soles are wearing thin, it’s probably time for a new pair.

When shopping for a new pair of Chacos, it’s important to know your size. Chacos come in whole sizes only, so if you typically wear a half size, you will need to order the next size up. For example, if you wear a women’s 8.5, you will need to order a size 9 Chaco.
