|I am on the far, top left. Check out my new Skora kicks!|
I am in a pair of Form shoes in Royal/White/Lt Blue.
The one thing that was new for me at this old race was my running shoes from Skora Running. Bekah and I were both given a pair to try from the company. She will post her review this week. I have to admit that I am in love with them! Honestly, I was skeptical. When I opened the box I thought can my pronating, stability seeking foot be happy in this light, leather, minimalist shoe? My motto in life is that I don't judge it until I try it! Like the old adage "first walk a mile in another person's shoes"....
The real test would be when I ran. Would they have enough support? I have ran three times in these wonders. My mileage was 4 miles and under on each of these runs. Again, I can't express how happy I am with these shoes! They are so light, so flexible, and very supportive. They are made out of goat leather, which is much more breathable and durable naturally than cow leather. I even wore my Swiftwick socks during the Steamboat Classic race and was just as happy running in them with socks as I was previously without. I am so thankful that Skora let me try a pair. If you don't believe me check out their Facebook page here and read the comments from other runners that are giving Skora a try. Their reviews are phenomenal like mine! I am surprised to say this, but I am giving my old standbys a rest and kicking it in my new Skora's from now on!
Why is Skora different?
SKORA approaches design and performance from a practical, honest and realistic understanding of a runner’s true needs. We don’t cling to doctrine, new or old. We don’t hold ideology over practicality.
SKORA is designed for the real runner, in the real world. SKORA products are designed from a feature/benefit analysis based on common sense. Many athletic brands focus on "technology" to help a runner go faster, longer, stronger. We believe that the best technology available is the human body, and design our products to respect this. SKORA products allow the human body to function as naturally and efficiently as possible.
Rather than look for features to add, we look for features to remove. We believe that the best shoe is one that complements the human body, and allows it to perform naturally.
