The mismatched “crazy mix” collab colorway features blue straps on the left foot and brown on the right, and vis-versa on the heel straps. The comfort-forward crisscross straps also feature a unique design woven into it in contrasting colors.

As with all of Chaco’s popular Z sandals, the polyester jacquard straps wrap around the foot and midsole for a customizable, comfortable fit. The “Cloud Cushion” offers a cushy slightly raised heel, which the American brand calls the “Luvseat,” a soft dual-density polyurethane midsole.

The patented ChacoGrip rubber outsole offers the perfect footing for all terrain adventures. The Chaco x Beams Z / Cloud Cushioned Sandal retails for $110 and is currently available to purchase on It comes in medium width in men’s US sizes 7 through 15.

The Japanese menswear brand Beams has engaged in multiple footwear collaborations, producing durable, workwear-inspired boots. A notable partnership with L.L. Bean yielded a monochrome rendition of the Original Maine Hunting Shoe. Their 2011 collaboration with Red Wing resulted in a 6″ indigo blue round-toe boot, popular in Tokyo’s Shibuya district during the 1990s. Further collaborations include partnerships with Danner and Briefing for boots and luggage, and an exclusive design with Dr. Martens for a 3-eye shoe with a side zipper, in black and white. This collaboration was revisited in 2019 with Babylon from Los Angeles, leading to the 1460 Remastered series boot influenced by rude boy fashion.

Chaco has also partnered with various brands, introducing limited edition colorways for outdoor sandals. In 2023, a collaboration with Outdoor Voices presented sunset-inspired colors for the Z/1 Classic sandal. In 2018, to mark the 50th anniversary of the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act, Chaco and NRS released a special edition Z/2 classic sandal, featuring straps inspired by NRS’s iconic blue and yellow tie-down straps.
