PlanetShoes.com, a lifestyle retailer committed to helping people live healthier, more eco-friendly lives, is pleased to include Chaco in their unique assortment of outdoor men’s, women’s and kid’s footwear. Chaco was created for adventure and a celebration of the outdoors. All of their shoes are created with fit, function, comfort and quality in mind.
Chaco believes in consistent, committed innovation to improve their product and make the ultimate outdoor shoe for adventurers around the world. “We’re proud to carry one of the first shoes that can be consistently repaired rather than thrown into a landfill”, said Phil Meynard, President of Planet, Inc. “Between their commitment to repairable shoes and their recent purchase of 400-megawatt hours of wind powered Green Certificates, Chaco is truly a green company we are proud to partner with”.
PlanetShoes.com is carrying a variety of women’s, men’s and kid’s Chaco, from their traditional styles to flip flops and sneakers.
Mark Paigen, Chaco founder and CEO, began as a fly-fishing and whitewater rafting instructor in Colorado when he started making outdoor sandals for his fellow instructors. The shoes were such a hit with his friends and clients that Paigen decided to start making sandals full-time. From there, in April 1989, Chaco was born. Now the premier footwear brand for outdoor enthusiasts and casual wearers alike, one can find Chacos in the diverse mountains, valleys and trenches of the world. Their commitment to the environment is an impressive facet of their company philosophy; they encourage their customers to repair rather than re-buy new Chacos, while donating to a variety of environmental organizations and offsetting their emissions by buying Green Certifiicates for wind power.
