Salming Race, since its maiden season, has always displayed a simplistic and expressive upper. All excess has been peeled off, focusing solely on being light weight with excellent breathability, spring 2019 is no exception. A new thinner upper mesh provides an improved fit and excellent breathability.
The 2nd generation of the super light Salming RunLite™ midsole weighs in at incredible 172g! (men’s UK 9 size). This is achieved by increasing the energy return property in the newly developed midsole compound.
The Torsion Efficiency Unit made of carbon built into the new light and very responsive RunLite™ midsole brings sturdiness to the shoe and it is placed to generate maximal running efficiency. The Race7 has been developed to make you feel fast – and race accordingly!
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.
Heel drop is essentially a measurement for how fat a running shoe’s heel feels. It’s short for “heel to toe drop,” shortened to “drop.” It tells you how much taller the heel is than the forefoot. Example: A shoe with a 22-mm thick heel and a 17-mm thick forefoot will have a 5-mm heel-toe drop. Salming Running shoes never has higher drop than 6mm as we believe a higher drop negatively interferes with your natural running stride and makes it hard to find a perfect running form.
Responsive without being overly supportive – The Torsion Efficiency Unit™ brings sturdiness to the shoe. It is appropriately placed to generate maximal running efficiency.
The midsole features the new RUNlite2™ foam midsole material which offers lower weight and better energy return from the very first step.
Our heel cup is specifically designed to add minimal weight to your shoes, creating a transformable, adaptive fit.
