Skora Running Shoes Review and Giveaway

Skora Running Shoes
Today, I have a very fun review and giveaway to share with you. I recently discovered Skora Running shoes which are similar to minimalist shoes that come in different styles and colors.

Skora shoes were created out of necessity. The creator, David Sypniewski, was injured for 18 months and decided to create a shoe that would help him heal. These shoes are similar to running barefoot. The idea behind them is that when a foot is allowed to run using it’s natural form, it will hit the ground with the whole foot instead of just the heel and help him to run longer without pain.

For my review, I decided to give the Phase Skora shoes a try. They are made with a minimal single-layer mesh upper and have laminated reflective details. They have asymmetric lacing system and unique IBR outsole. They have a Injection Blown Rubber platform which gives abrasion resistance, grip and compression with lower density and weight than rubber.

I chose this model because I loved the fun colors: bright orange, yellow and blue. I knew that they would help to make exercising more fun. I had not tried a lightweight shoe up until this point. I decided to try these shoes for walking and really liked them. For a 3 mile walk, I did not miss the extra padding.

The shoe is supposed to fit snug and my normal size was a bit large on me. I would go half a size down next time. I tried to wear these shoes running and did not think that they were supportive enough for me personally. I tried them a couple of times and prefer more padding.

I do really like these Skora shoes for biking, walking, weight lifting and lighter workouts.
