Who should buy Chaco Z/Cloud X2
The sandal coming from the Z/Cloud collection is a value for money option for women who:
- Prefer a strapped sandal
- Only purchase vegan footwear
- Will tackle wet trails
Chaco's proprietary outsole
The Z/Cloud X2 has a ChacoGrip outsole which balances traction and durability. This rubber material is non-marking and has a 3 mm lug depth for a grippy ride. Its composition is designed for optimal performance on wet and dry surfaces.
The proprietary midsole of Chaco, the LUVSEAT, powers the Z/Cloud X2. It follows the contours of the wearer’s foot for optimal comfort. It also provides a decent amount of arch support that stabilizes the user under various conditions. Likewise, the heel cup absorbs pressure and controls pronation. With a polyurethane (PU) compound, this multi-sport sandal is durable and wear-resistant.
Additionally, it is equipped with the Cloud technology for cushioning. Antimicrobial treatment is applied to control odor and maintain the sandals’ freshness.
The upper of the Z/Cloud X2 uses a double-strapped, durable and abrasion-resistant material—the polyester jacquard webbing. Its woven construction is developed to maintain long-lasting surface integrity after undergoing a stringent process in a machine. The toe loop allows a steadier step while an injection-molded ladder lock buckle is used to secure the foot in place.
Those who want a pair of Z/Cloud X2 can customize their sandals at an additional cost via the Chaco website. Interested individuals can select the design of the main straps, heel leash and riser, buckle and buckle strap, stitching, and logo badge. Buyers can also choose their preferred footbed and outsole. An embroidered text can also be added for a more personalized design.
The Rechaco is a service from the brand that enables owners to have their sandals repaired at a cost, as necessary. It is available for Z1, Z2, ZX1 and ZX2. The site lists options that include the parts that Rechaco can repair.
Chaco recommends “flossing” the sandals by using a fabric softener. This process facilitates removal of dirt in the areas where the straps enter. It is done by drenching the straps and squirting fabric softener on the slots then pulling the straps back and forth.
