â€œWe are psyched to get the Chaco fans involved in the design process, and think they will have a blast with this contest,â€ said Brandan Hill, Director of Product Development for Chaco. â€œFrom frog eye patterns for the amphibian fanatics to rippling water for the stand up paddler, we are all inspired by one thing or another. We want this contest to move all Chaco fans to share their favorite natural inspirations that will then live on through one of our sandals. We look forward to seeing both old and new friends in the booth.â€
