10 Differences of the SKORA Women's Running Shoe
1. SKORA Running Women's Shoes have Zero Drop.
In order to maintain natural, bio-mechanically correct movement, the SKORA women's running shoes feature a zero-drop midsole. This means that the heel and forefoot are on the same plane.
2. Minimal Cushioning.
By offering minimal cushioning, the SKORA women's running shoes allow for great ground feel while still providing appropriate protection. This allows for greater proprioception, or mind-body feedback, letting your feet do their job.
3. Asymmetric Lacing.
If you haven't noticed, your feet are actually asymmetrical! Strange then that most footwear on the market ignores this. SKORA running shoes are different. Their lacing system is asymmetric to match the foot's natural shape and remove laces from high pressure areas of the foot, eliminating pressure on sensitive nerves.
4. Stitch Down Construction.
The SKORA women's running shoes are constructed using a stitch-down method. This eliminates stitching under the foot inside the shoe for improved fit and comfort with or without socks.
5. Anatomical Last.
The last is what the shoe is built around. The shape of the last that SKORA uses mimics the many features of the foot by providing a curved bottom profile, wider toe area and a larger ball-of-the-foot width to provide a much more natural, comfortable, and anatomically-correct fit.
6. Curved Out-sole Forefoot.
SKORA women's running shoes have a curved outsole in the forefoot. This mimics the shape of the foot and encourage natural medial to lateral roll.
7. Curved Out-sole Heel.
SKORA running shoes have a curved heel shape. This mimics the shape of the natural heel, allowing for natural heel movement (medial to lateral) in running and heel role in walking.
8. Concave Outsole Forefoot.
Mimics the natural shape of the foot and allows for greater ground feel.
9. No heel Counter.
The SKORA running women's shoes do not have a heel counter. The counter is the reinforcement you find in the back of most running shoes. The lack of the counter in the SKORA shoes, allows for a much better fit and higher comfort levels in all degrees of motion.
10. Elastic heel strap.
The SKORA running comes with a small elastic heel strap that will allow you to personalize the fit of the shoe. This ability to customize the fit, not only feels more comfortable, but will allow you to perform better.
