Product details: Icebug Capra RB9X Running Shoes Purple / Dusk Women
The Capra RB9X by Icebug is a trailrunning shoe made for athletes venturing into endurance competitions in technical terrain or just look for long distance training comfort.
Materials have been carefully chosen with sustainability in mind in order to minimize climate impact. The durable upper is light, smooth and has a snug fit, still with a roomy toe box. The padding in collar and tongue is made of foam with closed cells which mean minimal water absorption in wet conditions.
Protective mudguard around the foot is a relief when running in harsh terrain. The upper and the removable insock both has a soft lining that gently embraces the foot.
As it is made of BUGforce EVA the midsole has excellent cushioning and rebound properties, which translates to a soft impact and energy return in the take off phase. As if this wasn’t enough a forefoot Rock Shield provides protection when stepping on sharp objects.
The outsole of this Capra RB9X has a unique pattern with multidirectional lugs for optimal control. The compound is the benchmark traction rubber RB9X that really excels at wet surfaces without compromising the durability.
Icebug has made it their mission to be as environmentally friendly as possible. Both the shoes and the production and transport are designed to be climate-positive. The materials used are largely recycled, made from non-fossil and environmentally friendly fabrics and dyed with non-harmful methods.
