- Chaco fuses the company's proven technologies, which include the PU Luvseat midsole and pull-through adjustable double straps, with contemporary design and modern aesthetics. The result is the Z/Volv X2 sandal.
- This sandal is 20% lighter than models that belong to the brand's Classic Z line. This is made possible by the airy polyurethane compound.
The Chaco Z/Volv X2 is a lightweight hiking sandal made exclusively for the female crowd. It has an adequately true-to-size fit and comes in standard width. It is offered in a range of whole sizes. Its pull-through straps, which include the buckled ankle strap, and heel risers may be adjusted and configured to the wearer’s desired fit.
On the traction front, Chaco equipped the Z/Volv X2 with none other than the company-owned Ecotread outsole. It is made of a special rubber compound, 25% of which is recycled material. Its non-marking surface is generously peppered with grippy treads and 3-mm deep lugs.
The sandal’s shock-absorbing yet stabilizing Luvseat midsole is made of polyurethane (PU)—a material that is characterized by durability, resilience, and good compression set. It has a vegan-friendly and women-specific construction. Its built-in footbed is amply textured to prevent underfoot slippage.
Chaco’s Z/Volv X2 wraps the foot in a double-strapped polyester jacquard webbing upper, fastened at the heel with an injection-molded ladder lock buckle. The upper’s adjustable heel risers are securely connected to the midsole with a stretchy and wear-resistant fabric.
