Hit the Shore this Spring in a Cool Collab by Chaco and United by Blue

Chaco
The days are finally starting to feel a little longer and warmer, so that can mean only one thing: spring outdoor adventuring. Whether you’re hitting the local river to paddle board or heading to the beach to catch the surf, this spring it’s time to upgrade your shoreline kit. Two of our favorite brands, Chaco and United By Blue put together a small collaboration collection to do just that.

Chaco x UBB Z2

We’ve been big believers in Chaco’s river sandals for a long time. The webbing uppers and Luvseat footbed they’re known for have been staples for decades among river guides, desert hikers, and dirtbag hippies everywhere. The secret is in the simplicity. Easy adjustment, comfortable wearing, and classic design are all hallmarks of every pair of Chacos. It’s not uncommon to see a pair last the better part of a decade of hard use. The Chaco x UBB Sandals ($130) keep to that award winning formula, with a limited edition webbing pattern. The Z2 style means you get a snug big toe loop that easily slides tighter for a custom fit. Overbuilt Vibram soles are incredibly durable, and have great grip – perfect for wading through rivers with your fly rod, or spending an afternoon on your paddle board.

Chaco x UBB Open Sea

On the apparel side of things, United By Blue’s Open Sea Boardshorts ($68) are quickly becoming our favorite new pair of shorts. The cotton-polyester fabric is treated with a DWR coating, so it sheds moisture and dries very quickly. They are soft to touch, and the cut is flattering on any body type. We’re taking our pair on a river trip down the Colorado soon, and couldn’t be more excited.

If you’re looking to haul your gear to and from your favorite river picnic or fishing spot, the Summit Tote Pack ($88) is as at home hauling a blanket and bottle of wine as it is getting packed with a few beers and lashed down to your board. Stowable shoulder straps help you carry it comfortably. The recycled polyester pack fabric is complemented nicely by webbing that matches your sandals, and full grain leather accents.
