  • SKORA Sizing


    Sizing can be tricky when ordering apparel online.

    Even among a single brand, individual shoes may often be sized a tad differently.

    We do offer free shipping both ways within the contiguous US and we have a great return policy, however getting the proper size first is always preferable.

    Below we go through a few pointers on sizing. Read More

  • Don't Wear Running Shoes Casually

    While wearing running shoes casually does not wear out the sole like running on in them well, it's important to know that walking, hiking, and standing in your shoes still can shorten their lifespan.

    Running can wear away the outsole due to the friction and movements of the shoes against the ground. This also slowly compresses the midsole in certain locations over time.

    Walking and standing in your shoes will not wear away the sole nearly as much as running, but it still can compress the sole and damage the upper due to the bending and flexing of the shoe during walking.

    We certainly like to wear our shoes casually as well as during training, and if you do this it's simply important to realize that they're not going to last as long as if you'd have a separate pair for your everyday wear.

It is important to always remember that no matter what anyone else has to say, the best shoe for you is going to be the that's most comfortable and fits your needs most optimally.

  • Transitioning to New Running Shoes

    New SKORA Tempos

    "I've never used your shoes and am hoping to get them this week, since I have a marathon on Sunday."

    That is a direct quote from a potential customer, and causes me much concern.

    One of my golden rules as a runner is that any change in your running routine be done gradually with extreme care.

    Even a new pair of the same shoe model you've been running in for five hundred miles, needs to be transitioned in to.

    Let's discuss why Read More

  • SKORA Mother/Daughter Shoe Review


    Skora Running Shoes:  A Mother/Daughter Review

    One of the best things about being a mom is sharing my love of running with my children. My oldest daughter has taken on her own love of running and now encourages me to be out there, trying new trails, learning new terrain, laughing all the way.

Combine that with the growth injury that my daughter has, and it makes it very difficult to find the right shoe. Read More
