On second look, I'm guessing that's what the Base is. When you've run in it, what were your thoughts on the straps vs. laces?

Hey Ryan,

The two shoes are totally different feeling when wearing/running but at the same time, both good. Personally, I prefer the FORM. The leather really molds to your foot and feels very comfortable, and almost better after wearing for some time. The BASE is more lightweight and the sockfit is quite comfy. The strap is very solid, but being non-flexible has a different feel than leather and laces that have a bit of a give (though the vamp of BASE is stretch mesh). Both in different ways have a "wear it and forget it" feel - in that you forget they are on.

Very nice work , I'm a sucker for asymmetric lacing.

Were you involved in all aspects of the branding and graphical design bits? Got that vibe from their website.

Thanks. Yup did everything from the logo to all graphics, packinging and marketing. Though the website was someone else and a few things different than I might have done.

Thanks. Those had seen better days by the time I got pics. On and off the last at least 3 times... With an asymmetrical design like these it's pretty much the only way to do it.

Just wanted to mention that I noticed the Skora shoes popped up on theclymb.com for a great price. $80 for Base, $118 for Form. If these shoes are as good as you say, it seems like a no brainer.

Saw this in the ISPO BrandNew catalogue. Missed the booth at ISPO though (if there was one?)

Visited the booth in the brand new area, or stumbled over it. Nice stuff though!

Wow, been a while since I updated this. My apologies.

Yes, they were in the BrandNew section at ISPO. They were a finalist for the BrandNew Award for the SS13 Collection. Sneak peak-

Image

As well, a week prior at the OR show, the FW13 PHASE-X received Best in Show from Gear Junkie. It has 360-degree reflectivity with reflective mesh, laminate overlays, even shoe laces!

Image

BTW, The FW12 Collection is now on end of season sale. 30% off select styles! http://www.skorarunning.com

New SS13 Collection coming early March. Lots of new styles and will share some development process when it drops.
