TrailStars Maximus

New Shamma Lacing, new possibilities- TrailStars are designed to take on the toughest trails while keeping you comfortably secure. TrailStar Alphas 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 Maximus share the same sole as the Warriors Maximus.

 Sole composition and stack height:

  • 8mm Vibram Newflex
  • 1mm UltraGrip footbed
  • Total stack height of 9mm.

 The TrailStars Maximus are made without leather or animal products.

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!

    Stable, secure

    I like them. The straps provide security - no fore-and-aft or side-to-side movement. I am not a trail runner, but they would be great on a trail. The sole is fairly thick, really tough looking. I expect them to last a good while.

    Nice Sandals, but not the best experience.

    I waited about 3 weeks to receive my sandals because they were shipped to the wrong address. Instead of just sending me new ones asap and they could keep the ones sent back to them, I was told to wait for the Sandals to be shipped back to Shamma and then to me which took forever. I tried warning them as soon as I received the tracking notice with the wrong address on it but the customer service response time is so slow (multiple days) that it couldn't be fixed. And then when I received the sandals the straps were too long because I bought the "L" version as is recommended on the website for wide feet. Still waiting on a response to possibly switch them. Honestly not looking forward to making an exchange because I'm assuming it'll take weeks to send them back and receive new ones. A lot of hassle for some Sandals.

    Excellent Fit!

    These are the best sandals I've bought. My feet usually shift around in sandals but the toe loop on these keeps them in line. I've got low vol feet as well so I wished there was a loop to hold the extra Velcro over the top. Some rubber bands work just as well. I haven't broken them in yet but my toes are not blistering so much, maybe the leather would've been better. Either way I'm glad I have them, and look forward to new colors!

    Favorite sandals

    After 3 years of hard use I finally wore my Mountain Goats out and decided to order a new pair. After looking at the new styles I went with the trail stars this time and like themeven more, which I didn’t think was possible! I have super skinny long feet and needed to get smaller straps. Customer service was amazing and they sent out smaller ones for me quickly with no charge. I wear these everyday, they are great for hikes and look good enough to wear out with a dress. So happy with these sandals and company.

    I wear size 15 shoes. Finding sandals has been an absolute crucible. Turns out the size 14L is perfect for my feet. These shoes stick to your feet better due to the toe loop and the thickness of the sole is absolutely perfect. Protects your feet but you can still feel the ground. Will be ordering more!

    Thinking of transitioning to barefoot running?
