Introducing the Bodhi from Chaco – the Lightweight Adventure Sandal You’ve Been Waiting For
ROCKFORD, Mich. (Aug. 9, 2022) – Chaco Footwear, the iconic outdoor lifestyle brand, today announced the launch of its highly-anticipated, lightweight, low-profile performance sandal – the Bodhi.
The Bodhi sandal features Chaco’s signature pass-through webbing in a minimalist pattern and an adjustable toe loop to keep your foot secure. Weighing in at only 7.24 oz for women and 9.56 oz for men, the Bodhi is nearly 50% lighter than Chaco’s Classic Z/1 sandals.
“Chaco nation has been asking for a lightweight, low-profile sandal that delivers on the trusted durability and performance of Chaco,” said Adam Garrett, vice president of global product, Chaco. “The Bodhi has all the DNA of the original Z/sandal built onto a flexible, lightweight base – so when every ounce counts, this will be your go-to option.”
Equipped with a ChacoGrip™ outsole for traction and a podiatrist accepted, LUVSEAT footbed for comfort and support, this low-profile option is ready for whitewater, the trail, and everything in between. Plus, it boasts webbing made from REPREVE 100% recycled polyester and is repairable at ReChaco, making it a long-lasting, sustainable option.
The Bodhi comes in both men’s and women’s sizing and retails for $100. It is available online at chacos.com and select retail stores nationwide.
