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.

My sweetie is proud of her snowman she made, or I should say Sammy as the name she gave him. Family skate day. My mom at a young 70 lacing up the skates! My favorite girl.
#mysweetie So intense. Power and strength to the max. Who says dinosaurs don’t exist. Sunday morning 3 mile barefoot run. Blowing the dust off the skins. I like to incorporate deadlifts with my back workout. This was my last set of 240lbs for 6 reps. Seeking that 300lb mark down the road.

It’s starting to warmup in the garage, 25 degrees this morning. “I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.” MLK 🔥
