  1. After years of not offering a "Tegu" style, you finally did. I got a pair, and like in the past I am thrilled to have a slip-on chaco (no back strap) that has webbing between the toes. They are the highest quality, technical hiking sandal with no back strap. I hope you continue to run this style. There is nothing like it…not even close.

  2. Hi, love your sandals. I have a question. I bought a pair of men's zcloud way back in 2004. Wore them every summer until the sole on one finally broke this year. Amazing longevity. Those sandals has a Vibram sole. Now I recently bought a new pair of men's zcloud sandals. But they don't have the "Vibram" emblem on the bottom of the sole. Is that normal.

  3. If ONLY sand didn't clog up the sandal, making any strap adjustments difficult / impossible, or shred straps. You'll never get all the sand out, and once the sand trapped in webbing grooves in the sandals dries, it's almost impossible to "floss" them, to clear the obstruction.
    In every other way it's a phenomenal sandal (I still have several Chaco Z1's I pro-formed 20+ years ago), but if sand is involved, I'll take my Keens or a "water shoe" made for paddling / kayaking.
