We just received our stock of the 2018 Salming Hawk Indoor Court shoe.
Salming kindly sent a pair for me to playtest which I have started and I must say I am overall very happy with them right now. It has only been 5 hours of court time and time will tell :)
I feel one of the biggest compliments to a shoe is that you don't think of it being on your foot during and after the match. The Hawk fit like a glove on my medium width foot and the cushioning both heel and forefoot is exceptional.
My areas of concern for this shoe are:
- The amount of durability of the mesh on the medial sides from toe drag
- The ability for the shoe to keep it's shape and not stretch out over time
- The longevity of the cushioning in the heel and forefoot
The plan is to wear them over the next two months and report back the wear and overall impressions with pics. Stay tuned.
5 Hours So Far: minimal wear signs and shoe feels great.
A big Thank You to Brian Mills and the team at Salming for providing the Hawk to playtest.
