The Salming Kobra is a fast paced unique combination of lightweight, cushioning and stability. As Salming's flagship shoe, it stands up against the best in the industry and worn by many professional squash players. In order to facilitate agility and stability but still maintain the lightweight characteristics, Salming has designed the midsole rear end with higher side walls that wrap around the heel area. Kobras ExoSkeleton design is totally integrated with the lacing construction in order to facilitate the best possible wrap-around effect of the foot. This keeps the foot in the right position during lateral movements. Added to the Kobra is Salming's HexaGrip outsole; a new and very durable lightweight rubber compound (HX120) that features Salming's HexaGrip pattern designed for the est possible grip on all indoor surfaces.
