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.
Salming Squash Shoes 2019
Salming has not released their 2019 shoes yet, but they have just put out a teaser video. Watch it here:
Based on the teaser video, Salming will introduce new models in the Hawk, Kobra and Viper ranges. I don’t know if they will continue to produce the Falco or Adder models. I’ll update this page as the new shoes start to come out.
It looks like there will be three new colors to start with for the 2019 Salming Hawk:
New colors for the Kobra 2 as well. Nice designs this year.
New versions of the Viper 5 for 2019:
The Eagle is a new one from Salming for the 2019 season. Don’t know much about it yet.
Salming Squash Shoes 2018
The Hawk was a new model that came out in 2018. This shoe was the top of Salming’s range in 2018.
The Salming Kobra 2 launched in 2018. It’s an updated version of the Kobra.
The Viper has a bit less cushioning in the front of the shoe, which makes it a bit lighter and more maneuverable. The Viper 5 came out in 2018, with an updated design compared to the Viper 4:
The Falco is a new model for 2018. It looks like a redesigned version of the Adder, and might be replacing that shoe. This appears to be the lowest-price shoe in Salming’s 2018 lineup.
