My first thoughts upon discovering Skora were that this is a brand, who at it’s core, truly have a passionate for movement, a passion for running and a passion for doing those two things in a more primal and minimalist type of way.

The Skora Fits that I have been wearing are categorized on their site as “training” shoes. To me, this means they are perfect for cross training. They can cater to a running habit or other practices like bike riding, crossfit & resistance training.

I started wearing these shoes on the heels of my first marathon and was open to trying a new shoe and giving it a fair chance. I also do some kettle bell work in combination with my running–so I wanted a shoe that would cater to both. My favorite thing about these shoes is that they let your feet be feet. There is no massive sole on the bottom of them. To me, that is the quickest route to injury and discomfort. I believe the feet were built with an arch for a reason. They are made to withstand weight from above without the need of support from below.

That said, different people & different runners get accustomed to different shoe profiles. Their muscles and gait slightly adapt to the thickness of their soles. These shoes (with a zero-drop, meaning the soles are fairly thin) were not a hard transition for me because I typically wear semi-minimalist shoes. I would imagine that someone using thick-soled shoes for runs and workouts would need a bit of a transition period before they felt comfortable in these shoes.

For me, they were awesome! I always look forward to wearing my Skora Fits. Not only do they feel like a dream, but they are vibrant and fun. Post-marathon training, I have slowed my running down to about 20 miles a week–with more strength and resistance training. These shoes work perfect for that mileage, and I’m sure they would continue to feel great on longer runs.

I have nothing but positive things to say about Skora. Their interaction with my has been gracious and pleasant–and their posts on social media are always inspiring me to run with more gusto.
