Chaco Z1 Sandals
Looking for the perfect sailing/hiking/exploring sandals? Look no farther than the Chaco Z1. These kicks are equally at home on a trail, on a beach, in the surf, or on a deckprovided you buy them with the nonskid Unaweep sole.
Credit the versatility to an ingenious strap-tightening system. Simply pull on the adjustment strap and you’re set; there’s no Velcro to come loose in the water, and no laces to get fouled on a cleat. Chacos dry quickly. They are stylish enough to be worn anywhere from the YC to the beach, and they're fantastic in hot-weather climes. You can wear socks with the Z1s, too, which extends their usable season. $95.
