This fantastic lightweight mesh shoe incorporates all of the unique technologies of Salming Xfactor and then some. The shoe’s upper is made from a durable lightweight polyester fabric, which is then covered in a special Black EXO-skeleton that effectively helps keep the foot in the right position during lateral movements and high performance activities. This uniquely comfortable upper construction helps the shoe to feel perfect on your foot from the first instant with virtually zero “break-in” time.
Compared with its popular sibling, the Salming Xfactor, Race is designed with less heel to toe drop, and a thicker forefoot with greater rebound characteristics, making it extremely comfortable and fun to run in.
At the core of the shoe’s design, you will find the unique T.G.S. 62/75 system which specifically designates the distance from heel to the ball of the foot (62% of the shoe) in order to optimize stability, comfort, and performance. Key to this design is the firmer,stabilizing section which ends at the ball of the foot at the so-called “ballet” line, a 75 angle. In front of the 75 line, Salming has equipped the Race R5 with a specially composed section which gives greater flexibility in order to further stimulate the foot’s Natural movements.
In addition, this great shoe features both the 5 angle concept on the outer edge of the shoe which helps avoid the risk of ankle injury, and the innovative RollBar technology on the inner edge, for quicker and better lateral push-off. In order to help you control all of this cornering performance, the XR110 outer sole has an extra sticky newly developed compound that provides 25% improved traction properties!
** Please note we have received notification from Salming International that the US sizing on the Women’s Salming R5 model were miss labelled. When selecting a US size go down (smaller) one full size to get the correct fit or use the European sizing which is correct.
