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.

Ran the Fairfield CT half marathon this morning. Came in with a time off 1:50:12.  This  was my 8th consecutive year running this race, and barefoot. My training was super light. Maybe 12-15 miles per week with no speed training, or fancy workouts, all runs were slow. I started lifting weights again, and noticed a big difference with running. The weight training is what pulled me through. The best snack/protein bar out there. Definitely no BS.
