Tread lighter and run faster with Skora’s minimalist shoes

With the chart-topping success of Christopher McDougall’s Born to Run and the bevy of similar books that followed, there’s undoubtedly a growing interest in barefoot running. However, the verdict is still out whether the minimalist running style is short-term fad akin to the paleo diet or a marathon method deeply rooted in our own evolutionary heritage. Nonetheless, the Skora Fit ($95) are specifically designed to mirror the foot’s natural shape, providing lightweight protection while easing the difficulty running with an appropriate whole-foot gait.

Skora founder David Sypneiwski ran barefoot for on pavement for years in an effort to alleviate running injuries before he officially launched the Portland-based company in 2012. Now touting both men’s and woman’s lines in a limited assortment of stylish colors, the shoes revel in minimal cushioning and asymmetrical lacing running the length of the shoe, while featuring a high-abrasion rubber outsole, 16-mm tuned midsole, and an antimicrobial insole designed to control odors.

The tongueless design even incorportates a 3-D printed support pattern and an internal archband, rendering the lightweight materials highly-breathable while retaining natural flexibility and control exactly where you need it most. The aforementioned, injection-blown rubber is also incredibly durable and responsive, offering phenomenal groundfeel when combined with the rounded heel and the anatomically-designed grooves built into the textured outsole. They may need a take several weeks to properly break in, but they’re still perfectly apt for your next training or road— no matter the distance or weather conditions.
