Spring Couture with New Running Shoes from SKORA and a Shoe Give-a-way too....





Summer is officially 6 weeks away and I am so excited. It means my kids are almost out of school and warm weather is on the horizon. We love being active in the summer and enjoying time outdoors. It also means I need a good pair of running shoes to keep up with these two crazy little boys who are so active!


I recently had the opportunity to try out a pair of SKORA running shoes. Founded in 2008, Portland, OR based SKORA Inc. is a performance shoe design company focused on minimal, lightweight running footwear that enables runners to 'Run Real'!





SKORA sent me a pair of their BASE running shoe. The BASE is the ultimate, multi-purpose running shoe. Equally at home on the road, in the gym or racing a triathlon. BASE offers a stretch-mesh sockfit with an innovative adjustable X-strap system, elastic heel strap, reflective details and stitch-down construction with an Ortholite insole. Lightweight, quick-fit, and unique in design, BASE offers lightweight cushioned ride with 13mm stack height (9mm without insole)  


BASE is built on the R01 platform composed developed to offer a unique anatomical fit that closely matches the foot's shape. The R01 platform also features a zero-drop outsole/midesole with just enough cushioning and a curved section profile in both the forefoot and heel. This allows for optimal natural movement and performance.

- REVIEW -


I was excited to receive the SKORA - BASE running shoes and give them a try! They are one of the most comfortable pairs of running shoes I have owned. 


They are soft around the ankles and provided a very comfortable fit to run in. I loved that they featured the Nylon X-Strap System. There is no time to stop and tie a shoe when you are running and the strap system ensures you won't have to stop and do that!

 
These shoes provide very good traction and I love that they also offer reflective details so that if you run early in the morning or later in the evening you can be seen better.
 

I've been wearing them for a couple of weeks now and love the comfort they provide. If you are looking for a minimal running shoe, one that will allow great flex and natural movement, then I would highly recommend you checking out the full line of shoes that SKORA offers!
