The Core is a new shoe, one of three shoes in Skora's lineup, as the line evolves into its second generation. The upper is goatskin leather, thanks to a partnership with Pittards, and is thin, light and strong, with perforations for breathability as well as conforming to the shape of your foot - aided by asymmetrical lacing.
The update to the original Minimus Road is a pretty dramatic change, but not a complete surprise. The upper of the 10v2 Road is closed mesh, and has taken its cues from the Minimus Zero road, replacing its traditional tongue with a setup that opens only on the lateral side, the medial side providing additional support from both the "tongue" design as well as no-sew overlays, which create a small saddle.
The Evo Levitas is one of two minimalist shoes from Mizuno, and represents the lighter and most minimal of the offerings. The upper is a thin layer of airmesh, with a snug heel and a very roomy forefoot design, that allows the toes to spread well and without restriction.
B2R (Born 2 Run) is a new brand whose focus is on form and strength. In addition to this shoe they have other products to improve strength and balance which will appear in another review. The Road Performance Shoe is a well designed minimalist running shoe.
