Are you looking for a shoe that has everything you need for a long, cold, and icy winter? A shoe that keeps you on your feet when your dog pulls you towards a ditch to sniff around. Then we have the shoe for you! Here are three reasons that Pace3 BUGrip GTX is the shoe you’re looking for:
Pace3 BUGrip GTX® is a waterproof, studded shoe that has become extremely popular with both dog owners and those who love winter exercise. Pace3 is light, warm, and perfectly designed for faster walks. The studs in Pace3’s outsole are durable and last for many miles on asphalt without wearing out. The shoe is also very comfortable, meaning that it will be a favorite for many years. That is important for you and our environmental goals.
Icebug constantly strives to create shoes that last for a long time. It is necessary if we seriously want to reduce consumption. As always with Icebug, we are also careful with material selection and change to better ones as soon as we can. Pace3 is made with - among other things - 100% recycled PET in the upper, harvested algae in the midsole, and recycled fishing nets in the heel and toe reinforcements.
If you are a dog owner, you probably know that it can be extra tricky to cope with icy winter walks. According to statistics from the Swedish Agency for Community Safety and Emergency Preparedness, you are especially vulnerable to slip-and-fall accidents if you have a dog. The staff at Hundstallet, Sweden's largest home for dogs in need of a new home, choose the Pace3 BUGrip GTX to survive the winter. They trust shoes that mimic dog claws!
The Pace is also available in a non-studded version – the Pace3 Michelin GTX®. But of course, it still provides great traction! We collaborated with the tire giant Michelin to develop durable rubber soles with top-class grip. Our Michelin outsoles grip like the non-studded winter tires from which they get their name!
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 our materials and processes to get a lower climate footprint. Our shoes must have a climate footprint of no more than 6.4 kilograms of CO2 on average by 2030. Along the way, we share our materials and suppliers through our initiative for transparency, Follow the Footprints.
