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.

Contoured midsole

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.

Strappy Upper

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.

Maintenance

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.
