As you're probably well aware, June is Pride Month, honoring the Stonewall Inn uprising and celebrating Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride. While the Stonewall uprising happened over 40 years ago, a Stonewall National Monument was only opened last year on June 24th, 2016. In honor of the first anniversary of the 7.7-acre U.S. National Monument, located in the West Village, Chaco Footwear and the National Park Foundation partnered to bring you a limited-edition sandal collaboration. The Chaco X National Park Foundation ZX/2 NPF Pride Sandals is the classic Z/Sandals boasting a strap design inspired by the Stonewall National Monument. It features a made-in-the-USA construction, double-strapped polyester jacquard webbing upper wraps around the foot and through the midsole for a customized fit, toe loops for secure fit, adjustable and durable high-tensile webbing heel risers, injection-molded ladder lock buckle, a vegan-friendly LUVSEAT PU midsole, and non-marking Vibram Colorado outsole.

The limited edition sandals are available on www.chacos.com for $130.00 each, with 10% of sales from every pair going to the National Park Foundation to directly fund projects for the monument. What better way to celebrate pride than to help this great cause.
