Built tough for rugged terrain. The MG’s sole shines on rough, uneven surfaces like gravel, muddy trails, and mountain passes. A bit less ground feel traded for a bit more stability. Great for hiking, with a bit more stack height and an aggressive tread.
- Thickness (inside tread): 9mm-10mm

A special composite soling material is what makes the Mountain Goats special. We use our own method to bond and combine the Vibram Newflex with Vibram Morflex materials into a unified sole. This extra step yields a sole that has the durability and traction of the Warriors with the smooth ride, light weight, and foot forming properties of the Chargers. The cost is a little bit of stack height, but this makes for an off-road adventure beast.
Two choices available on this one.
Tobacco Brown Leather – Comfy goatskin leather, great for most conditions. Very comfortable whether you are walking, hiking, or running. It is also great at managing small amounts of moisture like foot sweat.
Grip Top – Textured rubberized material, our non-leather option. It’s best for wet activities like canoeing, heavy rain, or creek walking.
Mountain Goats are perfect for anyone who is ready for an adventure outdoors. From hiking in the hills to completing an ultra-marathon, from backpacking high in the mountains to walking your dog in the woods near your house MGs have you covered.
The Mountain Goats offer the most protection of our sandals. The tread is aggressive, and the extra thickness gives a little more smoothness over gnarly rocks, roots, and other uneven pieces of terrain. They break in and shape up a little less quickly than the Chargers, but faster than the Warriors.
Team Shamma Recommendation: Hiking, mountain trails, rocky terrain, light-weight backpacking.
