Go for a run, the natural way, with SKORA running shoes. These minimalist-inspired running shoes for men and women enhance your natural gait and increase your efficiency, every time.


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.
