Icebug


Icebug of Sweden is a small focused footwear brand. Mission: Provide footwear to enable people to get out year round, even the darkest winter day, and to confidently enjoy, not just tolerate. The range includes functional, technical footwear that prioritizes traction in challenging conditions. Confident traction is achieved by sophisticated rubber compounds, outsole lug pattern and orientation plus a patented carbide stud technology, either permanently affixed in the outsoles (BUGrip™) or in strap-on traction accessories (BUGweb™). The carbide stud technology is not compromised on asphalt or concrete, and so is well suited to typical winter walk/run outings where darkness and the unknown mix of footing combine to keep the timid inside. The range includes running and racing shoes, fitness/walking sportboots, walkable fashion/urban boots and heavy duty winter yeti-wrestling models.

Icebug Sorix $160.95
Nice shoe
By Sashie, from Wisconsin | May 29, 2014

Over all I like the shoe. The only concern I have is that it fits so true to size that I'm not sure I will be able to fit a thick pair of socks on.

Excellent shoe
By Jim, from Detroit, MI | February 19, 2014

These shoes are fantastic. They provide excellent traction on all surfaces including ice and snow. I run pre-dawn and these shoes have eliminated any worries about slipping and falling on hidden ice patches on the sidewalk/street during this extremely cold and icy winter. Much better than using slip-over "YakTracks" type products. The Icebugs have the added benefit that they don't pick up snow and ice buildups on the shoe bottoms during use. I've only used them for 50 miles or so but so far they are holding up fine and have not lost any of the carbide tips even though much of my running has been on bare concrete. I would recommend them very highly.

Plenty of traction !
By Rob, from South Jersey | February 18, 2014

Great boot for icy conditions. They really do grip and give a secure feeling. They are also very light weight. You have to leave these boots at the door because the metal studs will tear up any finished floor. I use them every time I shovel snow. For some reason I didn't wear them today and I hit an icy spot hidden under the snow and I almost went down! I won't go out without them on any more.

Security on icy days
By Anonymous, from NY, NY | February 13, 2014

These are the best buy I've made this winter. Not only do they make me feel totally secure on the messy streets, as I no longer skid around in snow and ice, they also provide a lot more support than the average city snow boot. The inner soles are removable and can be replaced by orthotics. A word of caution - remove these whenever you come in from the outdoors - the metal studs in the soles make them very slippery on uncarpeted floors and will tend to scratch floors up.
