Something to get excited about for 2013 from SKORA – lighter, revolutionary technology, and lower-priced next generation minimal shoes!
The SKORA SS13 collection brings two all-new models with groundbreaking mid and outsole technology and construction techniques to the market. 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 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 w/o insole and 11mm w/ insole.
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. Zero-drop, 8mm forefoot/heel stack height. PHASE will be available in 3 colorways for men and 3 for women. MSRP $110. February 2013.
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. CORE will be available in 3 colorways for men and 3 for women. MSRP $155. February 2013.
