  • Running Hutch

    Tiffany (aka Hutch) and her husband did a great He Said She Said review of the Phase and Form.

    "Almost feels barefoot. Phase is wider and flatter through the arch than my Merrell Barefoot shoes and have a less constricted, more sock-like feel. Phase also has a slightly thicker toe box which is appreciated for protection. The heal of the shoe comes above some of my low-cut socks. These are my favorite shoes to wear around the house because of how light and comfortable they are."

  • Running with the Kenyans

    Below are two articles from Neil Scholes at Kinetic-Revolution.com, where he discusses observations from his time spent with the Kenyan Olympic Team.

    Kinetic Revolution is a wealth of information, and definitely worth spending some time at to increase your knowledge base.

    While the Kenyan athletes he worked with have abilities far beyond most of ours, we can still learn from them and apply their work ethics and habits to our own, in a hope to better ourselves.

  • Real Review - Barefoot Angie Bee

    Our friend Angie Bee recently reviewed the Core. Thanks go out to her for the great read and well done article!

    "Another unique and brilliant aspect of the Skora Cores is the asymmetric lacing system. It lets you tighten for comfort and yet not put undue pressure on the top of the foot. It also sports the fabulous Burrito Tongue! No, thats not what it is really called but it should be! The tongue wraps around the foot so no stopping to adjust the tongue. All shoes should have this tongue!

  • 27 Reasons to Not Run a Marathon

    Running 26.2 miles is most definitely an astonishing feat, but not everyone is meant for it. Fall is a very busy marathon season, Twitter is full of race results and people complaining about taper madness. Seeing all this can make a marathon very temping for non or new runners. With that in mind, here are some reasons to not run a marathon.

    1. You may have to start running more.
    Having a goal race is a fantastic way to give new motivation and drive to your running. Generally 40 miles per week ...

    As you proceed down the functional path to build the complete athlete, keep this analogy in mind. The way that force is imparted into the ground and the subsequent ground reaction go a long way ...

  • Take Your Time

    Patience and time do more than strength or passion. -Jean de La Fontaine

    In today's fast paced world, it's often difficult to think long term.

    However one of the best indicators of how successful a person is, no matter the endeavor they choose, is how long they've been at it.

    During my own training and coaching, I practice and advise a much slower and cautious build than many would normally do on their own. This is mainly to avoid injury and maintain as consistent of a running pattern for as ...

  • Review: SKORA Core

    Thanks goes out to the Rebuilt Runner for his recent review of Core.

    I ran on trails, roads, and grass so I got a good cross-section of how the Core handles on various terrain. They don't have deep tread so when I pulled them out of the box I was wary about how well they would grip the trails, but in practice they did a great job. The sole feels more like one solid piece than that of the New Balance Minimus (those ones are broken up into separate hexagonal pods) so you don't get quite the ...
