If you’re planning to attend any of the concert dates during the Grateful Dead’s 50th Anniversary “Fare Thee Well” reunion, you might just want to rock some dancing bears on your feet.

Chaco will provide. The sandal maker today announced limited-edition webbing options featuring the classic Dancing Bears and tie-died designs based on the Steal Your Face logo colors.

Beginning 9 a.m. Friday, May 1, Chaco will offer pre-built, limited-edition sandals with unique Grateful Dead webbing options.
