Can you buy Chacos in Spain?

I've got a few pairs of chacos, love em. I want to being a pair of Z1 classics with me as my second pair of shoes, for hostels and hiking once my shoes start to hurt.

I've already got a pair, but they're starting to get a bit worn. Worried I might lose one on the Camino Frances. Can you even buy them in Spain? It's an American company, so I'm not sure how prevalent they are over there. If it's easy to buy a new pair in Spain, I'll probably roll the dice with the pair I have, knowing they can be replaced. If there's no chance of a replacement, I may get new ones before I start.

Advice?

Thanks! Starting in mid September.

I have never seen Chacos in Spain, and a quick search on google.es doesn’t bring up any leads. Call their customer service number in the US to get the definitive answer.

On the Frances now...I've been wearing chacos as my primary shoe and purchased a replacement pair about two weeks before starting (not recommended lol. The first week was not comfy). I have seen keens along the way but not Chacos. I wouldn't plan on getting them in Spain.

If you choose to buy a new pair take Mananath's advice.. Buy early and break them in slowly. Once they are comfy and you are confident. Save them for the camino.

Also, Chacos will resole your sandals for you. I believe it costs around 50usd. Just make sure they will have them back to you in time for the Camino. This way they will already be broken in but with a brand new tread!

Hello, I live in Hospital de Orbigo in the French way. I order my Chacos here in Amazon Spain. There are also other internet pages with Chacos (24 to 48 Hrs deliver) No Problem.
