Salming Race R1 2.0 Men's Shoes Yellow

Comments: I bought a pair of the R2 as soon as they became available. I must admit these are the best shoes hands down I have ever had. Quick response, great feel remind me of a good basketball shoe. And don't worry about the colors unless you are ultra-conservative. So fellas that means that the girls will be looking.

Comments: these are probably one of the most responsive court shoes I have worn in 30 years. The only complaint I have is that there might be a little more cushion. They stop on a dime which means if you have worn knees it will translate into knee pain. Just keep that in mind. Otherwise you do not even feel them on your feet.

Comments: I snapped up a pair of these as soon as they hit RBW and I am definitely impressed.  They are actually marketed as a squash shoe and therefore fulfill the requirements of a great racquetball shoe.  First off, straight out of the box they are the most pliable and comfortable shoe I've ever worn on the racquetball court with one exception: my old Nike Multicourt 9s which gave up the ghost years ago.  There is absolutely no break in period. What I was truly most impressed with was the weight (or lack thereof) and the traction.  They are the lightest shoes I've every played in and although the courts I usually play on are notoriously dusty, my opponent tonight was constantly slipping and sliding while my R1s kept a great grip to the floor for 2 hours with no wiping. If it's comfort and traction you want (and what racquetball player doesn't) these are the shoes to buy.
