Mark Paigen established the Chacos brand in 1989. The idea of creating a sandal that would make his feet sun-dried without getting them wrinkled as well as provide enough support for the foot. This led him to develop custom sandals that have a continuous pull-through strap of synthetic material and a buckle.

At first, Paigen was using the process of tracing the foot on a paper to make custom pairs of sandals for $30. The finished products were then sold at a small shop in Glenwood Springs by Paigen. To further improve his shoe designs, he also consulted a podiatrist.

Originally, the company’s name was “Gecko.” Eventually, the name was changed into “Chacos,” which was taken after the Chaco Culture National Historial Park. The Wolverine World Wide company then bought Chacos in 2009 as well along with Merrell and Sperry.
