Awhile back Skora Running sent me a pair of their Phase shoes to test out.
Skora is a new virtually weightless, minimalist running shoe with a zero drop. These kicks provide a more natural run with less support than traditional running shoes.
It was my first time trying any minimalist shoe, so I was very cautious. For newbies, it is strongly advised to ease into them to allow your body to adjust to a new way of running.
While I never ran in them – I’m a little nervous given my dealings with injury punks but I do use them for a ton strength training.
Due to the instability of the shoe, I found they took my strength training to a whole new level. Y’all know I’m a strong supporter of strength training, but when I started training in these babies, I had sore muscles in places I didn’t even know existed. Boom!
The only problem I had was the heel was lacking cushioning for my delicate chicken feet – that could just be me, I don’t know, so the awesome folks at Skora sent me the Form to try.
These kicks are SO much more comfortable and provide the same unstable support the Phase did to I can continue to torture myself. Score!
To ease into them, I simply started out by walking around town, drinking coffee you know the usual around here. When first I slipped them on, I noticed the difference between these an my trusty nutural kicks – a more natural, freeing feeling right away.
They are super soft, have great attention to detail and I think the quality is definitely well above average. Bonus points for super low ankles. I freaking love that!
Front view because not only are they functional, they are adorable. Also they run a bit on the larger side, so I’d recommend ordering a half size down.
Now, here’s your chance to win a pair of men or women’s Skora Form running shoes!!
