Updates to Chaco Diana
- Chaco Diana features a mix of rugged features and style. It is intended for desert hikes. Aside from staple Luvseat footbed for cushioning, it also features a polyester jacquard webbing thin double strap upper.
- Between the wearer’s feet and the ground are Chaco-exclusive technologies for added comfort and grip. The Luvseat PU midsole is engineered to conform to a woman’s foot. Underneath is the non-marking Ecotread outsole for grip. It is made of 25% recycled rubber compound.
Chaco Diana size and fit
The Diana is a relatively true-to-size, hiking sandal made specifically for women. It is offered in full sizes and comes in B-medium width. Its adjustable double straps allow for a customized fit.
Chaco Diana features a non-marking outsole called the Ecotread. It uses a proprietary outsole compound that delivers optimum trail performance. The unit also features 2-millimeter deep, circular lugs for traction.
Chaco Diana is equipped with the women’s specific Luvseat PU midsole. It comes with an instant-comfort foam layer that provides arch support and comfort throughout the day. Its contours are shaped to support the female foot. It also comes with a synthetic footbed in a natural tone, giving it a dressy look.
Giving the Diana a more feminine touch is a wide range of color and patterns in its polyester jacquard webbing upper. A metal buckle secures the adjustable thin double strap.
- This model is part of Chaco's High Desert Collection.
