  • 95 / 100 | Blister Gear Review

    If you want a more trail-oriented version of the Chaco Z/Cloud 2 or Z/Classic 2, the Z/Canyon 2 is definitely worth a look.

  • 87 / 100 | Elevation Outdoors

    Maybe it was the heat of the summer, or the peer pressure of summer festival fashion trends, but I willingly made the decision to join the ranks of the diehard Chaco sandal owners, and I’m pretty happy that I did.

  • 85 / 100 | Trail Runner

    [T]he shoes feel noticeably less clunky than my old Chacos, which earns comfort points.

Chaco Z/Canyon 2 notable features

The Z/Canyon 2 is a Chaco product packed with features that help trail lovers cover miles with security, comfort, and stable performance. It comes with the 3-D Heel Holster—a supportive rearfoot strap built extra sturdy to keep the heel locked in.

It comes with two of Chaco’s proprietary technologies: Luvseat and ChacoGrip Plus. The former—the sandal’s midsole/insole—affords hikers with adequate cushioning and protection underfoot, while the latter grants users the right amount of grip on a variety of backcountry surfaces.

Chaco Z/Canyon 2 size and fit

Chaco’s Z/Canyon 2 is a relatively true-to-size multi-sport sandal designed for both men and women. It is offered in standard width and sizes. Its fit may be customized for a secure lockdown using the hiker’s highly adjustable straps.

Outsole

Giving trail dwellers enough slip and skid resistance in the Z/Canyon 2 is the ChacoGrip Plus outsole. This non-marking component made of rubber is engineered with low-profile, diamond-shaped lugs which claw into loose soil for extra grip.

Midsole

The Chaco Z/Canyon 2’s dual-density midsole called Luvseat is made of polyurethane (PU). It is built with the Cloud 2.0 technology for extra support. Its confines house a running-inspired kinetic rebound plate which grants enhanced energy return with every stride. A contoured non-removable footbed contributes to the underfoot cushioning it provides.

Upper

This Chaco offering secures the foot in its toe-looped upper made of polyester jacquard webbing. The strap securing the ankle region is furnished with an injection-molded ladder lock buckle, making it adjustable. The rest of the straps are networked within the sandal’s midsole unit, where they move to and fro during adjustments. Its supportive 3D-molded Heel Holster is made of thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU).
