From the brand
How did we get our start?
The founders – mother and son – were frustrated by having to choose between the risk of slipping and saying no to their favorite outdoor activities. So, they decided to challenge the global footwear giants and created shoes for running and walking on slippery surfaces.
Why do we love what we do?
To inspire people to a healthier and happier life all year round. Be a catalyst and leader in the transformation towards a fully sustainable industry.
What does Icebug do for me?
Icebug traction footwear gives you year-round traction on all surfaces and in all terrains.
