Product Notes & Reviews
The naming convention is kind of weird here. We already had the Salming Race R1 and its successor, the Salming Race R1 2.0. Now this shoe here is named the Salming Race R2 2.0. But it looks pretty much the same as the Race R1 2.0. I don’t get it.
Update: Tony commented as follows:
There is a difference between R1 2.0 and R2. The tongue on the R1 2.0 is attached to the footbed with a mesh as the R2 have a free-floating tongue.
Another update: watch my video review below!
The R2 is very similar to the Salming Race R1. Here are a couple photos showing the mesh connector thingy I mentioned in the video:
Oh, one last thing that I forgot to mention in the video. In some of the pictures and videos, these shoes come out looking very red. In real life, they’re red, but with a dash of orange. I have been advised by my fellow players that in a pinch, my shoes can double as traffic cones.

Ah, here’s the original “1.0” version:
