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.
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!!!
First tried skora core after reading reviews. Too little cushion for me plus after wearing four times sole was coming loose on edges. Sent back to online shoes. Fortunately they were out of my size for a replacement. Opted for the skora form. Just arrived today. All I can say is wow. Little more cushion and support than cores. Extremely comfortable. The strap on back that some do not like is fine. Think it will be nice once they stretch out a little. The cores fit more like a sock, but just didn't give enough cushion for me. Forms fit snug nice as we'll. I am 6'6 220lbs. Cores look better but I don't buy workout/ running shoes on looks, but they both are sharp looking.
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.
