SKORA Launches Groundbreaking SS13 Collection

New models built on a revolutionary design.

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.”


SKORA PHASE (7.2oz Men’s / 5.8oz Women’s) is constructed using the latest lamination techniques, with

a minimal single-layer mesh upper and laminated reflective details. With an asymmetric lacing system, and

a unique unibody IBR outsole, PHASE provides barely-there performance and lightweight responsiveness.

SKORA CORE (8.1oz Men’s / 6.7oz Women’s) features a perforated Pittards® Armor-Tan® Goatskin

leather upper, a combination lining with WR100X® leather and antibacterial Agion mesh, and an asymmetric

lacing system. With a unibody IBR outsole, CORE offers incredibly supple road feel, and superior

anatomical fit. Zero-drop, 8mm forefoot/heel stack height. $155 MSRP.


SKORA FORM (8.2oz Men’s / 6.8oz Women’s) is a full-leather upper featuring Pittards® Armor-Tan®

Goatskin leather with WR100X® leather lining, and is designed with unique asymmetric lacing and no-

tongue construction to provide a glove-like fit and premium performance. Zero-drop design, 9mm forefoot/

heel stack height. $185 MSRP.
