Many describe Eli as the most beautiful shoe they have had, but that doesn’t mean that it compromises on performance. Eli has an upper made of 100% recycled polyester, algae in the midsole for cushioning, and an outsole made of the same rubber as our running shoes, which guarantees good grip on rocks, boats, and jetties.
Eli is machine washable and is available this year in eight different colors. Which one do you choose? 🌈
Look at Eli's reviews, and you will quickly discover that this is something extraordinary. ''Super beautiful'', ''Best shoes I've had'' and ''incredibly light'' are some of the reviews that come back. 4.7 out of 5 ⭐️ from over 1500 users!
We at Icebug make shoes with the least possible climate impact. With Eli, we have taken our work to a new level. The upper portion of the shoe is mesh that is made of 100% recycled PET bottles. In the outsole, we have mixed in 15% recycled rubber. In the midsole you will find BLOOM® foam, which is a material made from algae harvested from lakes whose algae populations have reached hazardous levels. By using algae instead of oil, we reduce our climate footprint while purifying water. Win-win!
Icebug makes shoes that should be used often and for a long time. Eli, you can run it in the washing machine without any problems and thus keep them nice for longer!
This is how you do it:
✔️ Put the shoes in with some towels protecting the machine's drum.
✔️ Run at 30 degrees with your usual detergent.
✔️ Remove the insole and let it dry. Avoid direct sunlight and high temperatures.
Icebug hasn't flown home a single pair of shoes from the factory this spring, either. We haven't done it in five years - and don't intend to in the future. If we chose air transport, we would double each couple's CO2 emissions.
The BUGforce midsole gives you all the cushioning you could wish for. In addition, Eli has an insole with Ortholite Hybrid® that adapts to your feet. With comfort as a first name, the Eli RB9X is a perfect choice of shoe for those looking for soft and stretchy summer shoe.
The Eli upper is made of airy mesh, which ensures that your feet breathe, no matter how hot it is. Foot sweat is a thing of the past!
Eli is a perfect shoe for boating. The sole grips on slippery rocks, piers, and boat decks. Thanks to the airy upper, feet stay cool even when the temperature rises, and the shoes dry quickly if they get wet.
Icebug has been making shoes with the world's best grip since 2001, and Eli RB9X is no exception. RB9X is the rubber compound that we use in running shoes to give the best possible grip on even the trickiest surfaces, such as wet stones and rocks. RB9X brings you up to 40% better grip than other shoes!
We at Icebug are serious about our climate work. We follow the UN's Climate Neutral Now initiative, measure the entire company's greenhouse gas emissions, and constantly change materials and processes to get a lower climate footprint. Our shoes will have a climate footprint lower than 6.4 kilos of CO2 per pair by 2030. Along the way, we share our materials and suppliers through our initiative for transparency, Follow the Footprints.
