The Speed6 has a softer, more agile and spectacular upper than its predecessor, the Speed5. The development process of the Speed6 has been based on creating a light version of our Natural Running Support System which facilitates for every runner to find and stay in their natural running stride. We've been aiming for the driven runners that loved the Speed5 but also fell in love with the super soft upper of Race5 to appreciate the lightness and responsiveness, not to mention the spectacular reflective upper pattern. Speed6 - build for Speed!
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.
RECOIL R Midsole Recoil R offset heel insert is a shock absorbing compound that combined with Recoil deliver the perfect mix of shock absorbing properties and a highly responsive light feel.
Toe Box The toe box is more roomy in order to provide a possibility for the fore foot to expand properly in the landing phase, making it more effective in a biomechanic perspective.
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.
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). These shoes are therefore suitable for runners who have regular rolling behaviour, i.e. who do not roll their feet inwards or outwards when running. The neutral shoe can be used for competition, for fast training and for long endurance sessions. The damping may vary depending on the application: in order to achieve more direct ground contact during competition, it is advisable to use only a slightly cushioned shoe. When training on hard surfaces or for long distances, more cushioned shoes offer better comfort and protect the joints.
