SKORA Sneakers Take Advantage of Human Anatomy

SKORA Sneakers are designed to incorporate natural anatomical processes that take place when a person runs. As SKORA explains on its website, the human body is fine-tuned for running. Muscles and tendons constantly adjust and readjust themselves in complex biofeedback loops with every step. However, most shoes do not take any of this anatomy into account. Quite the opposite, as they work against it. The thick padding and steep heel-to-toe drop found in most running shoes actually diminishes efficiency and comfort.

SKORA shoes seek to compliment the human body rather than correct or compensate for it. They have less cushioning and padding than most sports footwear, which helps people to run with less loss of energy and more comfort.
