Shamma’s Sandals – Mountain Goat Review

This is my second review of Shamma Sandals.  You can check out my first review here.

Josh was kind of enough to let me review a new lacing system and I went with the Mountain Goats.  I’m looking to get into more trail running, and generally just wanted a thicker footbed.  Here is some info taken from their website:

What I really like about Shamma Sandals is the lacing system, it’s straight forward, simple, and they use Velcro for fastening, which I’m a big fan of.  The new lacing system consists of an adjustable heel strap.  To be honest, I wasn’t sure if I was going to like this and it took me awhile to adjust to it, but the final conclusion is I do like it.  The heel strap on sandals is something I always seem to be adjusting, with this new system you can adjust on the fly, it’s quick and super efficient!

Here are few pictures when I first received them in the mail.  Notice the adjustable heel strap.

I have taken the Mountain Goats on the trails and they are excellent!  I do like the thicker sole, it doesn’t affect my ground feel at all.  I life in New England and it’s very rocky where I run and the thickness is perfect. I can say with confidence the Mountain Goat can handle anything from smooth trails to very technical trails. They are also a fantastic hiking sandal and generally a perfect all around activity/daily wear sandal.  The lacing system holds my foot securely, and like I said before this lacing system allows quick adjustments if needed.

The photo below is about 2 months of wear. My foot is starting to make a nice mold on the leather topping and absolutely no wear on the bottom. I wear them as my daily casual footwear as well, these things will last me a long time!

I’m not new to running sandals, I have a few pairs of Luna’s, a pair of Bedrock Sandals but my go to sandal is without a doubt the Shamma’s and I highly recommend them to anyone.

First snow of the season. My son and I at the finish of the 5 mile Turkey Trot Rusty as a bag of nails, but it’s a good outlet. 5 mile Turkey Trot tradition. 20+ years running this race with my sister. My son made his debut today, fantastic job! Deadlifts. This was my last set of 225lbs, a new PR.
135 x 10 warm up
185 x 6
195 x 7
205 x 6
225 x 5

Had my son Andrew @parkor_boy23 filming and working out with me as well. Finally Optimal Nutrition comes out with a plant based protein.  Most protein powder has a lot of garbage in it, artificial flavors, gluten, dextrin, soy etc. which I try to avoid. I’m not a Vegan/Vegetarian but like a clean supplement. The taste is spot on. Not grainy or “earthy” tasting.  Very happy with this.
#optimumnutrition First cold barefoot run of the season. 25F and the sun was shining, felt good.
#barefootrunning 5am Workout.
I don’t have heat In my garage it was a crisp 32 degrees, but don’t mind.  Some benefits of having a home gym is no travel time, no people, and you can wear your comfies.
This was my last set of benching at 170lbs Fall fun.
