TrailStars Omega

New Shamma Lacing, new possibilities- TrailStars are designed to take on the toughest trails while keeping you comfortably secure. TrailStar Omegas have whole new lacing system, which connects the forefoot and big toe to the sandal like never before. With the Trailstars, you get shoe-level connection to the sole, using our proprietary Forefoot UltraStrap and SoleAnchors. Forefoot UltraStraps and SoleAnchors allow total control over your adjustments, to give you a perfect fit.  All this in minimalist sandal that allows for flexibility and natural foot movement.


The TrailStars lacing is made from HP UltraSuede, which is material that is made without leather but that will provide comfort and security all day long!


TrailStar Omegas share the same rugged sole as the Alphas and Mountain Goats only thicker. The main difference between them is the 8mm Vibram Newflex. 

 Sole composition and stack height:

  • 8mm Vibram Newflex
  • 6mm Vibram Morflex
  • 1mm UltraGrip footbed
  • Total stack height of 15mm

Weight: Approximately 7oz/sandal (at size 9)

The TrailStars Omega are vegan.

Have a wide foot and/or a high arch? Choose the L option in your size! The L size option will allow you to get the same size sole, but with longer straps to account for wide feet/high arches. Not sure if you should get a size L sandal? Email us at and we would be happy to help!

Please note- the TrailStars Maximus and TrailStars Maximus LE are currently the thinnest sandals available with the TrailStars Lacing System. We unfortunately cannot put the TrailStars Lacing on soles that are any thinner than the TrailStars Maximus and Maximus LE, due to the lacing being incompatible with thinner soles.

    Love the sandals!

    Great! I had to send the sandals back to longer straps (who knew I had wide feet?). It did take awhile to get a shipping label and get them sent back, but that is understandable with it being a small company. They were worth waiting for! I love the look and the comfort. Thank you for making quality products!

    I don't think I have super unusual feet, but the forefoot sandals strap was a good four inches short. I was ecstatic to here I could get them modified, and returned them for modification. I haven't received the replacements yet, but fingers crossed

    Great First Attempt at a New Lacing System

    I appreciate the extra thickness in the sole of the Trail Stars Omega when it comes to running on trails with rocks. I also like that I don't have to add Power Straps for extra security. The new lacing system is great. It holds my feet down but allows them to move naturally. I consider my feet to be 'high volume' so I purchased the ones with longer laces, but it turned out my feet were high volume in areas that did not require extra lace length. I was too lazy and impatient to exchange the sandals, so I cut and adjusted the laces myself using a sewing machine. I do wish there was a more universal, one size fits all lacing system for this style. Or perhaps a clear and easy way posted on the Shamma website on how to choose the right lace length. But other than that, they've been great. I use them on trails in the PNW, and they have been fine for 5 mile runs 4x a week. I took them for a longer run once, of around 10 miles on a hot day, and maybe that was too big of a jump. I developed a little blister on inside of my right foot, near the big toe and ball of my foot. I also felt some tightness with the straps that go across the foot while going downhill, due to some normal swelling, and I didn't really want to have to try and adjust the straps mid-run. I would suggest breaking into these slowly if you are new to this lacing system, and maybe carry a little Bodyglide for potential hot spots. But overall they are great. I have run in the Chargers and Mountain Goats in the past, and these provide more security and underfoot protection. But because they are more secure, it's a little harder to shake out that random little rock that might find it's way under the foot. I appreciate Shamma's willingness to create and innovate. I'm looking forward to seeing what else they can come up with, and if they can improve on this model.

    I have had these sandals for about a month now and I really like them. They were my initial introduction into minimalist footwear, and the thicker sole has been a great transition to the concept—though it is thicker it is still very flexible. They are comfortable and quick to break in. The straps are soft, and don’t show signs of wear yet. I’m planning to take them to Europe because I think they will be a great summer travel sandal.

    Really liking them so far

    These are my first pair of Shamma sandals, recommended on Anya's Reviews. I'm transitioning to zero drop and no arch support, and the Trailstars Omega have been great. They're the perfect amount of support for me right now and the straps are very comfortable. I find the flop flop style strap between the big toe and second toe to be a bit painful, and have found these to be a great alternative. I'd love to see them in different colors if possible! Thanks

    Thinking of transitioning to barefoot running?
