The new star of the indoor court shoe world! Salming shoes are worn by leading squash players including Amr Shabana, Adrian Grant, Ong Beng Hee, Lewis Walters, and Emily Whitlock. Suitable for all indoor courts.
This lightweight mesh shoe has a durable polyester fabric upper, which is then covered in a special black EXO-skeleton that effectively helps keep the foot in the right position during lateral movements and high performance activities. This uniquely comfortable upper construction helps the shoe to feel perfect on your foot from the first instant with virtually zero "break-in" time.
Race is designed with less heel to toe drop than many other indoor court shoes and a thicker forefoot with greater rebound characteristics, making it extremely comfortable and fun to run in.
At the core of the shoe's design, is Salming's unique T.G.S. 62/75° system which specifically designates the distance from heel to the ball of the foot (62% of the shoe)in order to optimize stability, comfort, and performance. Key to this design is the firmer,stabilizing section which ends at the ball of the foot at the so-called "ballet" line, a 75° angle. In front of the 75° line, Salming Race has a specially composed section which gives greater flexibility in order to further stimulate the foot's natural movements.
In addition, this great shoe features the 5°™ angle concept on the outer edge of the shoe which helps avoid the risk of ankle injury, and innovative RollBar™technology on the inner edge, for quicker and better lateral push-off. In order to help you control all of this cornering performance, the shoe's XR110 outer sole has an extra sticky newly developed compound that provides 25% improved traction properties!
The R9 MID has a slightly higher heel area upper which gives extra comfort and stability.

Extremely comfy and the shoe feels very solid when lunging in for a shot, and when turning. I've previously had an ankle problem, and these trainers have signifcantly helped with the higher ankle and many technologies in the shoe. Doesn't feel as light as my old Asics Gel Rocket, but not noticeable when playing. Normally a size 12, and these fit fine. Highly recommend.
Long deliberation over new shoes but highly pleased with this choice. A lot of tech incorporated and it all appears to function very well. Exchanged my normal size 9 to 8.5 for better fit - shoe initially appears narrow and long but were comfortable from first use, quickly moulding to my foot. High ankle gives better support if knees/ankles are less than 100%, roll bar makes turning etc more effective and the fitting makes the stop/push back movement much more effective. Easy to replace the insole for an orthotic if needed. Overall would highly recommend this shoe.
