Salming Squash Shoes 2014 / 2015

Here are the latest Salming models. In general, Salming squash shoes have cool styling, are very comfortable, have great grip, and are expensive. Some readers have complained the shoes are not durable, though my personal pair has lasted a year and counting.

Salming Race R1 2.0

Amr Shabana plays with this one. I have the Race R1 (original) and love it.

Salming Race R2 2.0

The R2 is a little less expensive than the R1. A reader says one difference is the tongue on the R1 2.0 is attached to the footbed with mesh, while the R2 has a free-floating tongue.

Salming Race R9 Mid

This R9 is the Salming shoe with a bit more ankle support.

Salming Race R1 Mid I think (it’s the original “mid” shoe from the Salming lineup)

Salming Viper

As I understand it, the Viper has a bit less cushioning in the front of the shoe, which makes it a bit lighter and more maneuverable. Adrian Grant wears these now.


Here are a couple new styles that are just coming out in 2015:



Salming X-Factor 3

An older model that’s still around.

Salming X Lite

And here’s one more shoe, the X Lite, which Adrian Grant used to wear, but I don’t think it’s available anymore. Looks cool though. First Salming shoe I ever laid eyes on.
