As one might expect, we love getting out and finding some adventure. But during the past year we’ve learned that embracing the great indoors can be pretty dang nice sometimes, too. Just like with any outdoor activity, to ensure maximum vibrations, you gotta have your indoor gear dialed too. I’m talking fireplace, stereo, incense, and of course, lounge appropriate apparel and comfy footwear, like the Chaco Chillos slide.
As always, we practice what we preach here at Field Mag HQ, so we recently escaped Brooklyn for a mellow weekend north in Catskills to really see just how chill these Chillos really are (spoiler: very).
Before we get into the tech specs of this high-style, low-tech footwear, I’d like to address another realization I myself, and many, many others, have had during the past year. And that is, wearing shoes inside sucks, and wearing socks with sandals, slides, and slippers rules. This is where the Chillos really shines. I mean, Chaco tan lines are still a badge of honor, but #sockos are a statement one can make year round.
Available in men’s and women’s sizing with a dozen colorways—and capable of being fully customized—the lightweight Chillos are an essential piece of indoor gear that works well in outdoor environments, too. Toss ‘em on after a gnarly hike or long day at the ski hill. Wear Chillos around the campfire, poolside, out to the sauna, and in the van. And of course, lounging around at home (or cabin, if you’re so lucky).
Contoured LUVSEAT arch-support promotes healthy alignment, and corrective footbeds help your feet recover quickly from strenuous activity. Beyond that, the blown-EVA construction mean they float in water and feel like a marshmallow underfoot. Iconic Z/Straps with a cinch buckle borrow from the brand’s most beloved sandal for easy adjustability and a classic look.
