Updates to Salming Race 7

  • The Salming Race 7, a road running shoe, is carefully crafted and designed for those who have neutral foot mechanisms. The running shoe features the redesigned upper. This component of the footwear is focused on improving the fit and increasing breathability. While adding breathability, Salming made sure that the shoe is kept to a reduced weight so as not to affect the runner's performance on different paved surfaces.
  • To create a smoother and snappier riding experience, the designers of the Race 7 kept the midsole thin. Along with the lightweight midsole is the utilization of the carbon fiber unit, which lies in the midfoot area.

Size and fit

With the way the upper area is constructed, the shoe is sure to provide a more comfortable fit. As a result, the user can confidently start and finish the running activity without worrying about possible shoe removal during the runs. 


When compared to the Adidas Adizero Boston Boost 7 that uses the boost midsole, the RunLite cushioning is integrated into the Race 7. This system features the High Abrasion Injection EVA that is strategically designed to deliver a more flexible and responsive running experience. This feature also provides optimal ground feel during the running session.

To create a more responsive ride, the Torsion Efficiency Unit is utilized. This carbon fiber unit is significant in delivering maximal running efficiency. 

Providing the heel up to the ball of the foot with stability is the sole responsibility of the TGS 62/75°. This component of the shoe ends with the 75° line, a design that promotes and encourages greater flexibility.


Utilized in crafting the Racer 7 is the Exo Skeleton. Salming added this feature of the running footwear to aid in stabilizing the foot without compromising the relief it provides on the MTP joints.

Offering lightweight breathability, the 1-Layer upper construction is used in making the shoe. The primary goal of this material is to keep the foot healthy and fresh from start to finish of the running session.

The heel cup design is integrated into the footwear. This design is geared towards the achievement of a more adaptive heel fit without sacrificing the platform's lightweight package.

The Anatomical last that features a roomy toe box is utilized in the shoe. This component of the Salming Race 7 is essential in allowing better toe splay.
