Salming squash shoes are court shoes suitable for squash. They are high-end indoor shoes with distinctive, eye-catching designs, lightweight materials, and high levels of comfort and grip. Salming has sponsored a number of professional squash players and they are the official shoe of the professional squash tour.
Salming squash shoes are on the expensive side. Some readers have found the shoes are not very durable. In terms of sizing, many people find Salming shoes run a little large.
I got a chance to look at all of Salming’s 2022 shoes. Here’s an unboxing video I put together:
