You might have heard the buzz about SKORA on Twitter or seen the many Instagram pictures of the shoes from diehard fans. The Chicks originally heard about SKORA shoes from our friend, Evelin. Naturally we were intrigued by the idea of minimalist shoes and were stoked when Vic and Mer were chosen to give the shoes a try!
We plan to try them throughout the month of September before writing a full review but here are our first thoughts.
Vic: I am really excited to give them a whirl. So far, I’ve only walked/run about a half-mile in them and I LOVE how light they are on my feet. But it’s a very different feel than I am used to. I wonder if I will be faster when I run in them? I sure feel snappier!
Mer: Thanks to the rainy New Jersey weather, so far I’ve only been able to try these on the treadmill. I did a mile walk to start before racking up two additional miles on the first day and three the second. Honestly, I can’t wait to get these outside. I really like how I’m able to feel more of the ground when wearing them and I also appreciate how my feet have the opportunity to spread with each step.
We’re both looking forward to logging some quality miles in our SKORAs! We’ll keep you posted with a full review in a couple of weeks!
Have you tried SKORA shoes before? Ever try barefoot running?
