Two words sum-up the Skora Fit for forefoot running – roomy and comfy. And, a major bonus of the Skora Fit is that it has a D-width toe-box, making it wider than the Skora Form, allowing better toe splay for balance and shock absorption when forefoot running.
Another reason the Fit is great for forefoot running is that its zero-dropped, light and flexible. Above all, the Fit has a super durable upper mesh and outsole, perfect for ultra long distance running.
The Fit is quite cushy, but still provides enough ground feedback to maintain your forefoot strike. The Fit also comes with a removable insole –I removed mine for better ground-feel.
The tread pattern doesn’t trap little rocks and pebbles, making the Fit ideal for trail running, too. The overall construction of the shoe is super flexible, allowing your foot to move more naturally, helping revive your foot and ankle strength.
Other notable features of the Skora Fit:
- Similar to the Merrell Trail Glove 2
- Can be worn with or without socks
- Solid Construction
- Barefoot-inspired design for comfort, speed and agility
- Slanted lacing system allows for a more secure fit
- Seamless air mesh upper
- High abrasion, high density rubber outsole provides unmatched durability
- Antimicrobial foam insole, stops bad odors in their tracks
- Stretchy upper adds more overall flexibility
The Skora Fit is the forefoot running shoe for runners with wide feet. The shoes are minimalistic enough to help you enhance your forefoot running form, but contains enough padding for long-lasting comfort during long runs.
Unfortunately, the Skora Fit is no longer available, however the next best alternative to the shoe is the Lems Primal 2!

BSc Neurobiology; MSc Biomechanics candidate, ultra minimalist runner & founder of RunForefoot. I was a heel striker, always injured. I was inspired by the great Tirunesh Dibaba to try forefoot running. Now, I'm injury free. This is why I launched Run Forefoot, to advocate the health & performance benefits of forefoot running and to raise awareness on the dangers of heel striking, because the world needs to know.
