Spirit8 OLX

Optimized for fast running off-trail.

Spirit8 OLX - Our most popular orienteering shoe of all time.

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

The materials are carefully selected, with special attention paid to sustainability, comfort, and performance. Spirit8, just like its predecessors, is a flexible shoe. This version has a slightly more spacious toe box to increase comfort and allow the foot to move more naturally.

Spirit8 OLX is developed together with the world's best orienteer, Tove Alexandersson. We want to say that it is the world's best orienteering shoe. This studded racing shoe is made for the toughest running - and the toughest runners.

Full speed through the forest

There are not many who can get through the forest with the same speed and finesse as Tove Alexandersson. The orienteer from Borlänge has a big high World Cup gold, European Championship 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 this collaboration is that Tove is involved in developing Icebug's best-selling off-trail shoe, Spirit.

The most important shoe

“I have been involved in developing Spirit exactly as I want it. What I like about 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 on an orienteer so the shoe must take care of them in the best way possible. I am incredibly happy with the result and how Spirit is now. It is the shoe I compete in and now it is absolutely perfect for me.”
