Are those as narrow as they appear in the pictures?

@Jeepman--they are more narrow that something from Vivo, but on par with New Balance's standard width minimal shoes.

How would you say they compare to Minimus Zero Trail 4E in terms of toebox?

MT00 has a wide toebox but for me there is slack where the shoe curves in front of the second toe.

This looks like a good alternative to MT10 leather

@ACC, the Zero Trail in 4E is HUGE and definitely too wide for my feet. Skoras are considerably narrower in the toebox.

my experience has been a little different with the phase. the zero trail 4E is the only NB minimus shoe i can wear. the rest are too narrow. the phase fits me well; it's wider than the base i had before. also, i had to order a half size up to get the right length (i usually wear 11.5, but i had to order 12). over all, though it is a very good shoe. i'm 6' 215, so my feet appreciate a little extra softness in exchange for some ground feel. it's not quite as minimal as the vivobarefoot, but it's the next most comfortable option. if they were wide enough, though, i'd be wearing minimus hi-rez.

I got this by being DUPED into buy them by another “review” floating on the internet, most likely made by SKORA itself

As soon as I opened the new box, there came out the STRONGEST REEKING FOUL smell of Cheap Chinese manufacturing material and paint and glue, the WORST I have EVER smelled from ANY SHOES, EVER !
MADE in CHINA…

These are indeed the CHEAPEST shoes I have Ever had to deal with in my life, the outside claimed “goat skin” is nothing more than Synthetic thin leather material Heavily painted with toxic paint and glued onto another dirt cheap fabric material…

I tried to Wash all the Black toxic paint from them, it took me 3 DAYS with changing soapy water twice a day in a big tub, and they STILL dripped intense BLACK colours all over by bathroom,
by the end, my WHOLE Tub looked BLACK and their started Coming off into PIECES !

THERE WERE HOLE IN THEM and the supreme “goat skin” started to come off in pieces, leaving big holes in the shoes…..

I only wore these once, and I could not even return them after try to wash the paint off……

SKORA Ripped me off very bad this time !
These garbagde shoes are not worth even $20 on a black china market…

STAY AWAY !

If you don’t wash them, then all the crap in them will soak through your skin with sweat after the first few runs, and your whole feet will reek of a 10 cent an hour shoes manufacturing plant for days

I'm not sure what you're issue is, but I've had nothing but positive experiences with both Skora shoes and their customer service. I have every Skora model and I've never had a problem with anything you mention. I've got over 400 miles on my cores and they've never done anything but get softer and more flexible.

In fact, the one "problem" I had was with a pair of the Base model I had. I felt a little nub that bothered me when I ran without socks. I contacted support and without a second question they just sent me a brand new shoe.
