PORTLAND, OR – SKORA, INC., a new brand of running footwear, is launching their new SS13 collection with two all-new models featuring groundbreaking mid and outsole technology and construction
techniques. Also being released are fresh new colorways of the two debut models SKORA launched to
critical acclaim earlier this year.
The two new SS13 models, PHASE and CORE, are both built on the revolutionary new R02 unibody outsole
platform, featuring IBR (Injection Blown Rubber) that provides the function of both midsole and outsole – and
is unlike most platforms on the market.
Pushing the boundaries of material technology, IBR offers better abrasion resistance, grip and compression-
set than injected EVA, at a much lower density and weight than rubber. This provides runners with an ultra-
supple ground feel and outstanding durability, longevity and running comfort in a flexible, lightweight single
unit. The new PHASE and CORE are zero-drop for the perfect blend of feel and function, featuring an 8mm
forefoot/heel stack height for incredible ground feel with needed protection.
With a continued focus on introducing unique designs and functionality, David Sypniewski, Founder/CEO
for SKORA, INC. describes the collection as “an evolution of our philosophy, founded on challenging
the status quo and building running shoes that not only enable natural running, but do so by seamlessly
combining design and performance.”
