Our #91 shoe was originally designed as an indoor handball performance shoe and developed together with one of the best handball goalies in the world – Mattias Andersson of SG Flensburg Handewitt and the Swedish National Team. The shoe has since then entered the sneaker world as well, in its all white all grain leather shape. Now it has gone through a design refresh featuring the Crown and number 91 – the signature look of the Salming sneaker collection. The crown originates from the nick name Toronto Maple Leafs fans gave our founding father Borje Salming during his 16 years playing for the Leafs, the #91 is the year he founded the brand. Salming #91– a sneaker silhouette powered with performance.
Inside the raw rubber outer sole shell there’s a hidden EVA performance midsole.
To stabilize and fixate the heel, which is key to providing a great fit and comfort, we have developed a new anatomical Ergo Heel Cup that is slightly longer than the average heel cup.
Torsion Guide System. The distance from heel to the ball of the 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. TGS 62/75 takes all of the gait cycle criteria into consideration. At the same time, it softens the strains caused by friction during lateral movements. The shoe bends in exactly the right places, stimulating the foot’s natural lateral and forward movements.
In order to help you control all of this cornering performance, our XR110 outer sole has an extra sticky developed compound!
