Updates to Chaco Juniper

  • Chaco Juniper is part of the brand’s High Desert Collection. It is intended for exploring canyons. A combination of comfort and durability can be found in its full-grain upper with leather lining. Its strappy design allows it to hold the front and ankle areas of the foot.
  • Cushioning is delivered by a midsole unit called Luvseat. Underneath is the ChacoGrip outsole for traction. The tread forms a leaf vein-like pattern.

Chaco Juniper size and fit

The Juniper is a relatively true-to-size, hiking sandal made specifically for women. It is offered in whole sizes and comes in regular width. It has an open-toe gladiator-style straps design for a secure ankle hold. The linked heel straps and antique-finish metal buckle allows wearers to adjust the fit based on the ankle circumference.

Outsole

The Chaco Juniper features the proprietary non-marking rubber outsole called ChacoGrip. It features a  tread pattern that provides ample grip for wet surfaces. Chaco helps reduce waste and conserve the environment by using 15% recycled rubber compound for this unit.

Midsole

Chaco equips the Juniper with its women’s specific Luvseat EVA midsole for lasting comfort. Resting on it is the leather-wrapped footbed with an embroidered design of the Chaco logo.

Upper

The Juniper features a full-grain leather upper that gives it a dressy and straightforward look making it easy to pair with activewear and chic outfits. It is leather-lined for more comfort. The ankle straps are also networked together to allow for some adjustments. Finishing the look is the adjustable antique-finish metal buckle that secures the straps.
