Chaco Flip EcoTread
For summer wardrobes consisting of pair after pair of flip flops, the EcoTreads are an active, all-day performance superstar. A waffle-stamped, contoured footbed offers great support and comfort—thanks to a deep heel cup and pronounced arch support. The webbed straps make them quick-drying and practical for grungy pursuits like weekend car-camping, short hikes, and all-day festivals in grassy fields. One tester found the wider straps stayed on her foot really well — even in flip-flop hell, sand. The low-profile rubber outsole (made of 25% recycled rubber, hence the name “EcoTread”) makes for decent traction on a variety of surfaces. Note: Sizes run small.
