Cruisers are now Chargers! In with the new.

Cruisers will now be called Chargers. We've made a lot of tweaks and adjustments over the years and we've decided that the Cruisers name no longer reflects what the sandals do best, so we're officially renaming them! From now on we're calling them the Chargers. All of our sandals are geared for high performance, and the name just didn't ring true. There's good flip-flops out there, but that's not what we make here at Shamma Sandals.

Shamma Power Straps are here!

  A quick piece of news - Power Straps are here and are available now in the Shamma store.Click here to check them out.So, why did we make these? Power Straps aren't for everyone. We make all our sandals with the idea of giving you more foot support in the lacing, preventing your feet from slipping around. But sometimes you just need even more, an extra layer locking you down. We has some feedback that something like a tech strap would be useful in certain situations. The Power Straps are our answer to that, made especially for high-impact activities and sports.We've been working on these for a while, having them tested by runners, kayakers, foot doctors, trainers and so on. With the Power Straps, we...
