The Salming Kobra 2 women’s court shoes have quickly become a weapon of choice for many athletes and features updated reinforced zones on the upper that are thinner and lighter for a fast paced ride.
This next evolution has been enhanced with a Recoil ERF - Energy Return Foam midsole to give you an energised rebound response with cushioning at no compromise to the lightweight design.
Salming’s innovative SoftFOAM compound takes over the Recoil R of the previous model in the heel impact zone, and according to Salming it provides 70% greater shock absorption compared to an ordinary EVA midsole.
You get a blend of performance and comfort from the Torsion Guide System (T.G.S. 62/75) that improves the stability between the heel and ball of your foot (62% of the shoe) up to a 75 degree angle. Beyond this point towards the front of the shoe, you get enhanced flexibility where you need it most for freedom of motion and reduced strain on lateral movements.
Salming’s HexaGrip pattern is constructed from ultra-durable rubber and provides lightweight traction, making it a stand out contender on indoor courts for sports like squash and floorball.
ExoSkeleton: Features a breathable, thin mesh that’s tough enough to tackle the modern game and an integrated gusset tongue to prevent it from shifting out of place. The ExoSkeleton links to the lacing system to boost midfoot stability and support.
Recoil ERF (Energy Rebound Foam): Midsole compound delivering featherlight cushioning for a responsive rebound and efficient use of your energy.
SoftFOAM: Cushioning compound for softer impacts on lunges and strategically placed in the heel impact zone for shock absorption.
LMS (Lateral Movement Stabiliser): A dual torsion unit inbuilt into the shoe for a lightweight, supportive ride for quick lateral motion.
LMS+ (Lateral Movement Stabiliser Plus): Minimises risk of ankle injury, particularly on quick lateral stops with an 8° angle to limit the outward rolling motion of the foot.
Ergo Heel Cup: Stabilises your ride with a slightly longer length compared to standard heel cups, improving your comfort and fit.
T.G.S 62/75: Torsion Guide System facilitating the natural motion of feet in action by bending in strategic zones while providing targeted stability.
RollBar: Accommodates the inward rolling motion of the foot and toe push off with a larger radius on the outsole inner side to turn up the speed.
HexaGrip: Unique outsole pattern provides a grippy, durable platform in a lightweight package for traction on all indoor courts.
Stack: 22mm centre of heel, 14mm ball of foot
