Here’s a roundup of Dunlop squash shoes / Dunlop indoor court shoes. Indoor court shoes are meant for squash, racquetball, or any other sport that requires non-marking soles.
So far I’ve seen Dunlop indoor court shoes for men only. I’ve never come across any women’s models.
A lot of these are actually no longer available for sale. Dunlop seems to put out one or two models a year, at least as far as court shoes go, and that’s it. All the models I’ve been able to find are posted below — even the out-of-print ones (which are listed at the bottom).
Although Dunlop squash rackets are one of the most popular brands in squash, their shoes haven’t made as big of an impact. I am not aware of any pros using them and I do not see too many club players using them. I did get a chance to review the Dunlop Flash Ultimate a few years ago though, and it was a decent shoe.
So far I only see this available in the UK. I spotted it in 2019 but I think it’s been around for a little while because some sizes are already unavailable. This looks similar to the Dunlop Flash Ultimate (which is an older model) and the Dunlop Flash Rapid (see below on this page).
I also first spotted this in 2019 at UK stores. It looks the most similar to the Dunlop Flash Ultimate.
Although this doesn’t have gum-rubber-colored soles, it is an indoor court shoe. Based on some comments I’ve seen, I think this shoe was used by squash players but may have been more popular among racquetball players.
I did a review for the Dunlop Flash Ultimate back in 2016. This one was available in the USA and UK at the time, although it’s harder to find now.
Out-of-Print Dunlop Squash Shoes
Below are some older shoes that are out of print and difficult to find.
I think this was the first pair of Dunlop court shoes I ever spotted, back in 2014. The soles are non-marking, despite the fact that they are not gum rubber.
The idea of a rapid inferno seems terrifying, if a bit redundant. These look like variations on the Rapid Lite. First posted these back in 2015.
The Ultimate Lite, like the Ultimate Tour model, have a little tag saying “D30” on the side of the shoe. This is supposed to be some sort of impact-resistance technology from Dunlop.
Paul from PDH Sports did a review of the Dunlop Ultimate Lite in this video, and his feeling was even though the shoe might have a little extra weight to it, it makes up for it with additional stability and cushioning.
Dunlop Flash Rapid
This is one I get queried about often, but I’ve actually never seen it for sale anywhere. My guess is it may have been sold exclusively by SportsDirect in the UK, but that it’s not available any longer. Check out the Dunlop Ultimate Pro as a possible replacement — it looks very similar.
Those are all the Dunlop squash shoes I’ve been able to find. If you see any additional models I haven’t posted, please add a link to the comments section below.
