Spirit8 OLX

Our most popular orienteering shoe of all time

Icebug’s Spirit has been around for many years. It is still the obvious choice for off-trail runners and both world champions and amateurs in orienteering. The grip of the eighth version of the Spirit is just as good as it's always been - the combination of the special sole pattern and fixed steel studs means you never have to think about where to put your feet. 

The materials that go into Spirit are carefully selected for their sustainability, comfort, and performance. Just like its predecessors, Spirit8 is a flexible shoe. This version has a slightly more spacious toe box to increase comfort and help the foot better follow its natural movement pattern.

Run like Tove Alexandersson. Run in Spirit OLX

Spirit8 OLX was developed in partnership with the world's best orienteer, Tove Alexandersson, and we say that it is the world's best orienteering shoe. This studded racing shoe is made for the toughest runs - and for the toughest runners.

There are not many people who can make their way through the forest with the same speed and finesse as Tove Alexandersson. The orienteer from Borlänge also has a large WC gold, EC gold, and World Cup victories on her merit list. She has also won both the Jerring Prize and the Bragdguldet.

Tove Alexandersson is an official Icebug ambassador. Part of the collaboration includes Tove being involved in developing Icebug's best-selling off-trail model, Spirit.

The shoe's most important

“I have been involved in developing Spirit exactly as I want it. What I like about the Spirit is that it has the best grip you can get. It is also durable but, at the same time, flexible, comfortable, and compliant. The feet are the most sensitive part of an orienteer, so the shoe must take care of them as well as possible. I am incredibly happy with the result and how Spirit is now. It's the shoe I compete in, and now it's perfect for me.”
