  • The Odyssey is an all-terrain water hiking sandal from Chaco. It has a closed-toe upper that uses a breathable mesh for comfort. Trail protection and enhanced structure come from the synthetic overlays.
  • The gender-specific contour of the Luvseat bi-density EVA midsole cushions each user’s step. This component works with the brand’s ChacoGrip Plus sole, which gives the sandal a rockered form for facilitating a smooth roll off motion.

This Chaco hiking sandal caters to men and women. It is manufactured in standard width and comes in whole sizes only. Generally, the Odyssey runs true to size. Those who are in between sizes are recommended to get one size up for a better fit. Volume and fit can be adjusted through the Z-shaped strap overlapping the mesh upper.

The non-marking ChacoGrip Plus rubber compound makes this hiking sandal grippy. Its 2.5 mm lugs are 2.5mm bite into most terrain types. The outsole is designed to be able to perform on both wet and dry grounds without sacrificing traction.

The Chaco Odyssey sandal uses the gender-specific Luvseat midsole. It provides comfort and arch support to users, enabling them to perform optimally on and off the trails. An antimicrobial treatment keeps it odor-free.

This vegan-friendly hiker from Chaco wears a combination of breathable mesh and polyester jacquard webbing on its upper. The synthetic overlays provide structure and amplified protection. An injection-molded ladder lock buckle is used to manage the fit. Lastly, the tabs attached at the heel and tongue assist in donning and doffing.
