What your Chacos are saying about you?
Rachel Witt

Everyone enjoys comfortable shoes that are easy to slip on for when on the go. For me, those shoes are my Chacos. I received my first pair of Chacos two years ago as I had a full schedule of summer camps, and needed a pair of shoes that would last all summer. I fell in love with the zig zap straps and comfortable sole. Although my daddy once told me he considers them a form of birth control, I reminded with a little southern sass that probably wasn’t a bad thing. Despite that "characteristic", there are four other things in my opinion that every Chaco wearer has in common.

1. The Adventure Spirit

If you own a pair of Chacos you most likely enjoy hiking, canoeing, or basically anything outdoors related. My Chacos have faced many mountain trails, river streams, and camping trips. They are the perfect shoe to get a little dirt on while being easy to clean after the adventure is over.

2. The College Student

Many Chacos can be seen on college campuses around the United States. Chacos match perfectly with the oversized T-shirt and Nike shorts when headed to class. They are also easy to slip on after you've overslept, and only have ten minutes to make it to your 8 a.m.

3. Church-Goer/Jesus Lover

Now this one might be a little farfetched, but in my experience if you own Chacos you label yourself as a Christian. Nor would I like this characteristic to offend anyone, but I attend a Baptist university and 98% of the student body owns a pair of Chacos. There was even an event for one of the social clubs called Chacos and Tacos. Sounds like a fiesta if you ask me! Chacos are the go-to shoe for when going to church camp or on a mission trip because of the reliability/comfort of the shoe.

4. The Laidback Attitude

Chaco lovers seem to put off the idea that going with the flow is better than being stressed out. (Which in my opinion is the way life should flow, get it?) Ha, OK back to my point. On any given day, you could probably find someone wearing Chacos relaxing in a hammock listening to some smooth tunes or reading a book.

I am sure I did not hit these 100 percent and am know there are many different ways describe someone that is not based on what kind of shoe they are wearing, but as a Chaco wearer myself I have accepted these as some of my personality traits, and have seen them in many of my friend who also love their Chacos dearly. Now, that the weather is warming up it's time to put on the Chacos and go for hike hoping when you return you have that wicked zig zag pattern tanned onto your feet.

Adventure is awaiting.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

Ross Woodhall

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
