These are beautifully made and comfortable. They're advertised as being useful for people with plantar fasciitis, but just wearing them around the house was painful for me. The heel has a lift right in the middle, and there's not much arch support. I'm all for shoes that strengthen the feet, but I need more support than these offer. They are, to be clear, very cute; the leather is soft and lovely. Wish I could keep them.
Great shoe. Very stylish. It is a lot different than a typical running shoe. There is not a lot of cushioning but it is supposed to give you the feel of being barefoot. I use them for cross training and they seem to be ok. Haven't really ran in them much yet but I did a light jog and I think they will be good on most surfaces.
I wear these SKORA shoes out all day, and when i am coaching tumbling classes, because they stay clean and are so light weight for the gym. I get so many compliments, and questions asking where i got such cool looking shoes. They are wonderful for running, and super flexible, and i must not forget how comfortable they feel, its almost like you are not even wearing shoes when you have them on. My only complaint is, is that I'm afraid to get them dirty or wear them to much, because i love these shoes like children and don't ever want them to leave me!!!
Born in Poland and reared in Calgary, founder David Sypniewski chose the brand name SKORA, which means "skin" or "leather" in Polish, depending on the context.
The name is quite fitting for the "second skin" shoes, a majority of which are crafted from performance goatskin leather.
The Portland-based minimalist brand offers a creative line of shoes designed to encourage running performance that is as biomechanically correct as possible, with minimal interference.
Run Real is the SKORA philosophy. Using a REALFIT™ last, the sleek, lightweight shoes offer runners a natural fit with minimal cushioning, a zero-drop heel and asymmetrical lacing for more security and comfort.
Less is definitely more when it comes to SKORA technology. Rather than load shoes with unnecessary features, SKORA keeps it simple, teaching runners to listen to their bodies with better ground feel and a curved heel/forefoot outsole that mimics the foot for a more natural gait.
