Speed – build for speed! Developed for quick training runs or race day, the Speed has come out on top among its peers in several performance reviews, among them Runner’s World 2017 Fall Shoe Guide, who deemed it ”the lightest and most flexible shoe in this guide”. The Speed8 midsole is powered with Recoil PLUS, injecting an incredible 20% higher energy return, making it Salmings most reactive compound to date and an incredible update from the Speed7 version! To enhance the comfort and cushioning properties of the heel impact zone - a SoftFOAM area has been added - a heel insert area that has 70% better shock absorbing properties than standard EVA. The outsole features a durable lightweight rubber and a dark graphic patched pattern on the upper glows in a rainbow of colors when hit by headlights of a car – run safe and fast!
TGS 62/75° The distance from heel to the ball of foot (62% of the shoe) has been designed with extra stability, which ends in the so-called “ballet” line, a 75° angle. In front of the 75° line, we have equipped the shoe with greater flexibility to stimulate the foot’s natural movements. The TGS 62/75° feature assures that the shoe bends in exactly the right places, stimulating the foot’s natural lateral and forward movements.
Heelcup Salmings heel cup is specifically designed to add minimal weight to your shoes, creating a transformable, adaptive fit.
RECOIL Midsole The material in the midsole is a newly developed compound named RECOIL which absorbs negative impact forces and releases a higher rebound energy effect in the toe off phase.
Height: 22 mm heel centre, 16 mm ball of foot
Straight cut for normal freedom of movement
The neutral shoe or cushioning shoe is equipped without pronation support (the lateral support of the foot). It is therefore particularly suitable for runners who have a regular rolling behaviour, i.e. who do not bend inwards or outwards when running. The neutral shoe can be used in competitions, fast training or long endurance sessions. The cushioning can vary depending on the intended use. In order to achieve a more direct ground contact in competition, it is advisable to use a slightly damped shoe. In training on hard surfaces or with long units, more cushioned shoes offer better comfort and protect the joints.
