Things change, usually for the better...

Product design and development is a process.

A process that challenges not only your concept but also your patience and endurance.

Over the past couple of months here at SKORA, one of our challenges was the fit and function of our strap system for our laceless shoe model. What started as a Z strap, then it morphed into a Y construct.

Sometimes a concept is just that, a concept. It requires testing and honest analysis and asking the tough questions; Can we do better? Our passion to create the very best running shoe drives everything we do.

We finally arrived at a X shape strap design, which, after 6+ edits finally achieved the level of comfort, performance and practicality we were after.

Here’s a sneak peek of just a side of the X-Strap design you can expect in the upcoming laceless design of our shoes.


We’ve got much more to share in the coming months, so stay tuned!

Run Real,
