TrailStar Maximus

The TrailStar Maximus pushes performance with every step. Designed for intense activity that requires speed and precision, the TrailStar Maximus functions as well in the gym as it does outdoors. These lightweight and secure sandals break the boundaries of what you expect from minimalist footwear.


The Maximus use an 8mm Vibram® Newflex sole coupled with your choice of UltraGrip or Tobacco Brown Goatskin Leather footbed for a 9mm total stack height. Vibram® Newflex is made from a blend of rubber and EVA to form a durable soling material with aggressive tread. At 3mm thicker than the Warrior sole, you will get a much more rugged sandal that is capable of diffusing the feeling of rocks, sticks, and the like from underfoot. The Maximus sole is suitable for a host of situations from the trail to the gym. Pair with the UltraGrip footbed for use in the harshest elements, or select the Goatskin Leather for more comfort in drier conditions.

TrailStar Lacing System

Increased security from over-the-foot style lacing is the hallmark of TrailStars. The TrailStar Lacing system features a specially made forefoot strap made from Toray® Ultrasuede and a nylon mesh. The result is an extremely comfortable material with the strength properties of webbing. The forefoot strap is completely adjustable and anchored through the bottom of the sole. Final adjustments are made through a tension lock on the outer heel post. All forefoot straps are cut-to-fit after adjustment. The heel section of the lacing system employs two heel posts covered in Ultrasuede for comfort. Heel strap adjustments are locked into place using Velcro®. The result is an extremely comfortable and secure lacing system that is ready for adventure!

Flexible fit is wonderful

Although it hasn’t been sandal wearing weather yet, I followed Shamma’s instructions on fitting and the sandals are the most comfortable I’ve ever worn. Looking forward to living in them all summer.

Hard work pays off

The straps are so supple yet supportive. Being able to get a custom fit on such stylish sandals is a dream. Love them - will definitely buy again. It's a shame I forgot to buy the power straps when they were on sale, would make running just that much more secure.

Great sandal for tougher conditions

While Warriors are my everyday go-to sandal, when I need a little extra protection—wading through rocky stream, hiking over cobbles—the Trailstars offer that extra security and protection while still being very light. Both Trailstars together weigh less than a single sandal of what I used to wear.

Very streamlined and minimal. I could walk all day in them. Quick to put on and off. Can get the fit just right with all the adjustment points. I got the leather footbed, and they are very grippy even when wet. I wear them walking, out shopping, and traveling (they are very sturdy, and yet all those straps give them more substance and style than a flip-flop, so they are versatile; I only packed these when going on a trip.) I measured my feet in every way they advised, and also checked sandals I own that fit me good. It was worth it to get a pair that fits me perfectly. They are not inexpensive, but the price is very reflective of the quality. I'm looking for a reason to buy myself more.

Thinking of transitioning to barefoot running?
