The Salming Viper White Squash Shoes are the latest version of the terrific Viper line from Salming. The Viper are an extremely light high performance shoe. The Viper feature less cushioning in the forefoot than the Race series which aids in the player feeling really connected to the court. The RollBar technology on inner edge of the shoe helps with pushing off aiding the player to get to the ball quicker. The ExoSkeleton structure provides the strength that the shoes need to keep your foot in place while changing directions. It really works well. The LMS+ unit provides excellent lateral support and helps prevent ankle roll. Overall a great pair of shoes. Salming has also strengthened the toe drag area to provide a bit more protection to the shoe for those who drag our back foot on the lunge. The white colour scheme is a more traditional look for the player looking for the performance of the Viper but not wanting the flashy colour scheme of the either the Cyan or Gecko Green model.
Salming Viper White Squash Shoes
The Salming Viper is a fast paced agile shoe with a low profile and excellent stability characteristics. It incorporates the very best of Salming Indoor shoe technologies and then some. If you’re a fan of the Salming Race model you will find the Viper lower and with less cushioning in the fore-foot area, enabling a more close-to-the-court feel plus a lighter and more breathable upper.
The construction has its origin in the Salming Running shoe product range, where it has been very well received with its three layer system where the unique Salming ExoSkeleton™ keeps the foot in the right position during lateral movements and high performance activities. Agile, fast paced with a low profile – The Viper.
At the core of the shoe’s design, you will find 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, we have equipped Salming Viper with a specially composed section which gives greater flexibility in order to further stimulate the foot’s natural movements.
The midsole features a special High Abrasion Injection EVA - RunLite™ - designed to create a nice feel for the court. It is light and responds to the surface from the very first step.
In addition, the Viper features both the 11°™ angle concept on the outer edge of the shoe which helps avoid the risk of ankle injury, and our 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, our sticky XR110 compound is included into the design of the outer sole!
