Some runners prefer less. Others, more.
Some prefer none at all, while even more prefer as much as they can get.
Whether you prefer your insoles thick or thin, in or out, there’s no question that such a decision is an important one.
When I was first introduced to SKORA, I couldn’t stand the insole. Coming from nearly two years in those funky toe shoes, the mere 4mm in the SKORA FORM felt squishy and a little bit like cheating. But as I ran more and more and further and further, I came to ...
Every athlete evolves.
When I started running 10 years ago, my first run was in street shoes.
I was a complete novice, but also a quick learner readily listening to my body . And in this case, my feet were telling me “please buy a pair of running shoes.” With little thought, I bought the first pair I saw at the store.
Not long after lacing up my new sneakers, the evolution continued and I started signing up for trail running races. My love for the sport quickly grew as did the race ...

While we do not make trail specific shoes, do have a couple models that will be perfectly adequate for all but the most wet and muddy trails, and even then you may be good.
The characteristics of trail shoes that most distinguish them from road shoes are more prominent lugs and rock plates to protect the bottom of the foot from sharp stones.
Both of these shoes feature our ...

How to pick the optimal shoe for you may be one of the most misunderstood aspects of running.
For years it was standard practice to go into a specialty running store and have the employees examine your feet for how they are shaped and in what way they move.
You've likely experienced this. Barefooted, you walk back and forth or stood ...
Your event, be it 26.2 or 3.1 miles, doesn't really care what you did the week before the race.
It doesn't even worry too much about the two months before that.
What is is concerned with is your frequency, consistency, and volume of miles over the long term. We're talking months to years. Every day adds up, a marathon is worth more than the sum of its parts.
