Icebug | Which running shoe should you choose?

Running should be fun – wearing the right shoes will decide. We have running shoes for both world champions and beginners. With this guide we hope to make it a little easier to find the right pair.

OutRun RB9X®

OutRun is our most comfortable trail shoe, optimized for running on gravel roads, forest roads and paths. Perfect for the everyday exerciser who wants a well-cushioned shoe with good grip. The OutRun is also popular with runners who traverse far into the forest.

In addition to being a comfortable, high performance running shoe, OutRun is also the best choice you can make for the environment. The midsole contains algae that is harvested from water sources that contain harmful algae blooms. We include recycled rubber from our own production in the outsole and have managed to make a durable upper with 100% recycled polyester. In short: OutRun is a big step towards a less dirty shoe industry.

Horizon RB9X®

Goodbye asphalt, hello forest! Horizon is Icebug's stepping stone to the trails. Having a few less technical details than the OutRun, the price tag for the Horizon is a little a lower, making the Horizon a perfect running shoe for you who are exploring trails for the first time.

Horizon is well-cushioned with an airy upper and is best suited for simpler surfaces. But Horizon’s versatility won’t let you down on the narrow paths. You’ll be running with confidence on the best unstudded grip on the market – Icebug's RB9X® rubber.

Capra RB9X®

An attractive running shoe, Capra is for you who are looking for a light, flexible trail shoe suited for technical terrain. Icebug collaborated with world champion, Tove Alexandersson, in the Capra’s development to make a perfect running shoe for tough trail running or skyrunning, and we nailed it.

Capra takes you up rocky mountains or down steep slopes with no problems. A tight fit is combined with a spacious toe box. The outsole, with its aggressive and unique pattern, is made with RB9X® rubber for the absolute best unstudded grip.

Acceleritas8 RB9X®

Light as a feather, fast as a weasel. Acceleritas is Icebug's lightest trail shoe and is suited for you who love minimalistic running. Acceleritas brings you close to the ground and allows you to feel every step. Almost like running barefoot but with added protection for your feet and aggressive grip for your sole.

Low weight, low drop (4 mm), narrow last and maximum grip are the hallmarks of our best-selling Acceleritas. The RB9X® sole provides excellent grip even on wet surfaces. The shoe absorbs minimal water making it well suited for swimrun, OCR and orienteering. Acceleritas is also the first choice for everyone involved in agility.

Zeal5 RB9X®

Zeal5 RB9X® is a durable and unstudded shoe for training and competition in technical terrain. With its slightly wider fit, Zeal is a perfect alternative for you who cannot wear our narrowest shoes.

The sole couples Icebug’s unparalleled RB9X® rubber with a tractor tire-shaped pattern providing excellent grip on both wet and dry surfaces making the Zeal perfect for swimrun and OCR.

Spirit8 OLX (Studded)

One of Icebug's true classics! Spirit is a shoe adapted for orienteering and tough trail running. Its fixed steel studs OLX provides the best possible grip on roots, logs and rocks. Suitable for those who are looking for a narrow shoe that can withstand all sorts of conditions and terrain.

Low wet weight, exceptional durability and exceptional studs make Spirit8 OLX a favorite with orienteers worldwide. Spirit is developed together with the world's best orienteer of all time, Tove Alexandersson, winner of several World Cup golds. With Icebug’s fixed steel studs OLX under your feet, there is no surface where you have no grip. Nothing. Zip. Zero. Nothing. Feel free to prove us wrong!

Zeal5 OLX (Studded)
