SKORA, INC., a new brand of running footwear, will be launching their Spring/Summer 2013 collection at Outdoor Retailer Summer Market, booth #41155. www.skorarunning.com.
The SKORA SS13 collection is more than double the size of previous collections and brings two all-new models with groundbreaking mid and outsole technology and construction techniques to the market. 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 â€“ and is unlike any other platform 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, like the original FORM and BASE, and feature 8mm forefoot/heel stack height â€“ 1mm lower than the originals.
With a continued focus on introducing unique designs and functionality, David Sypniewski, Founder/CEO for SKORA, INC. describes the collection as â€œan 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.â€
