The Salming Race R1 2.0 is the latest in the Race R1 series of shoes from Salming. It continues the excellent tradition of being an amazingly comfortable shoe right out of the box. These shoes require virtually no break-in time before playing with them. The cushioning foam in the heel and the rebound foam in the forefoot help make these shoes super comfortable to play in.

The new model feature an all XR110 rubber outer sole for even better traction on court. A squash specific improvement is improved durabilty in the upper and toeguard area to better protect the shoe against the wear caused by players dragging their foot. The new colour scheme looks fantastic too. If you are looking for a high performance, light and very comfortable pair of shoes for squash the Salming Race R1 2.0 Safety Yellow Squash Shoes are a superb choice.
Salming Race R1 2.0 Safety Yellow Squash Shoes
The shoe's upper is made from a durable lightweight polyester fabric, 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.
Compared to many of the competitors, Race is designed with less heel to toe drop, 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, you will find our 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, we have equipped Salming Race with a specially composed section which gives greater flexibility in order to further stimulate the foot's natural movements.
In addition, this great shoe features both our 5°TM angle concept on the outer edge of the shoe which helps avoid the risk of ankle injury, and our innovative RollBarTM technology on the inner edge, for quicker and better lateral push-off.
In order to help you control all of this cornering performance, our XR110 outer sole has a sticky compound that provides excellent traction properties!
