Rounded Heel Radius
“To make it easier to land correctly on your heel and thereby roll smoothly in and out of the characteristic squash lunge, we have increased the radius of the heel area to provide a more efficient movement that minimises strain on your joints and Achilles”
When moving in and out of the characteristic squash lunge, your movement needs to as quick and fluid as possible. To achieve this, the heel construction and design needs to have a larger radius compared to a general multisport indoor shoe which typically have a small heel radius which means that you balance your heel on a very thin edge when moving in and out of a lunge, which creates an unstable base that can increase the risk of ankle and Achilles injuries as well as preventing a smooth and fluid movement.
In addition to the larger heel radius, the midsole has been extended to provide greater support and stability to allow a soft in-and-out lunge movement with enhanced control and agility.
AbraZone™ Hexagon Outsole Pattern
The design of the outsole, the area of the shoe that is in contact with the floor, is critical to providing an assured grip that allows players to move with confidence, whether accelerating to the front of the court, stopping quickly or turning suddenly.
Regardless of the condition and quality of the court floor, the unique hexagonal pattern of our durable AbraZone™ outsole maximises grip through controlled suction of each hexagonal chamber, ensuring dust particles stay clear of the outsole surface where the grip properties are left in optimum condition.
Fast and agile movement is further enhanced by a natural gum rubber forefoot that perfectly complements the diagonal flex groves that allow players to retain their weight through the front of the foot to promote quicker and more explosive movement.
Carbon Torsion Unit
A super strong, ultra-lightweight Carbon Torsion Unit arch support allows the forefoot and rearfoot to move independently to provide better surface adaptation and stability for smoother and more agile movement.
The carbon-fibre plate is situated in the arch area between the outsole and the midsole, and its shape is designed to optimise the torque properties in line with the foots biomechanics leaving you with a very well balanced shoe that provides excellent support as well delivering explosive forefoot propulsion and exceptional energy return for faster and more efficient movement.
‘U-FOAM’ cushioning in the rear and forefoot absorbs impact shock with increased stability, allowing for more comfortable landings, pivots and stops.
Excellent lateral stability is complimented by outstanding player comfort through improved rear foot and forefoot U-FOAM cushioning.
A DuraZone™ upper increases durability and reduces overall weight without compromising stability and comfort.
The ability to change direction quickly on court is provided by our ergo sculptured natural gum rubber at the forefoot allowing enhanced traction even on a slippy surface.
U.W.A.D. Upper Wrap Around Design
The performance of a premium squash indoor shoe is the sum of all the features and technologies combined together.
The Tour-Tec PRO upper consists of not only the DuraZone™ PU body but also The UWAD - Upper Wrap Around Design, a construction integrated into the lacing system, made to smoothly lock in the foot and keep it in place, making you feel as one with the shoe - creating stability and eliminating the risk of blisters under your feet.
