Eli is perfect for summer walking and living, combining the airiness of a sports sandal with the casual sportiness of a great looking sneaker. Engineered mesh upper keeps the feet cool on summer days. Ergonomically shaped last, memory foam insock and midsole roll for superb foot health. Well-cushioned BUGforce midsole results in a soft impact and an appx 50% better energy return than a standard EVA foam midsole. Elastic cord instead of regular lacing provides an easy on and off feature. RB9X® outsole provides traction on Sunday strolls and downtown walks.
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!
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.
Icebug never makes shoes less than the best traction. The sole on Eli is made from our proprietary rubber compound RB9X, which gives you up to 40% percent better grip than other shoes. Test on wet rocks and you see what we're talking about.
Thanks to solid sustainability work, a pair of Eli RB9X stands for a climate footprint of 8.2 kg CO2 equivalents, which is one of the shoe industry's absolute lowest values. This is equivalent to about 250 grams of beef or a tenth of a smartphone - and is lower than the imprint of a conventionally made T-shirt in cotton. We at Icebug climate compensate all our emissions by 200%, which means that for a pair of Eli RB9X we compensate for 16.4 kg CO2 by investing in emission reduction projects that are certified by the UN.
