Bellingham, WA (December 9, 2015) – Icebug footwear debuts their new Everyday collection for Fall 2016, designed to take on day-to-day life throughout winter, no matter how cold or slippery. Sleek, stylish designs are paired with the ultimate traction technology to create the perfect winter boot. No matter how treacherous the sidewalks, Icebug’s Everyday collection gives you stability and safety.
The Everyday collection features Icebug’s proprietary outsole technology, BUGrip®, designed and built to handle slippery conditions. The BUGrip sole is made of a special sticky rubber compound, plus 15-19 steel studs integrated into dual-density rubber, allowing the studs to work independently from each other for dynamic traction on all outdoor surfaces, from dry asphalt to sheet ice.

A double adjustment with a medial zip and full lace provide precise fit and convenience. Additional features include a ripstop nylon and suede leather upper, fleece lining, PU foam inner sole lining, and a cushy EVA midsole with ESS stabilizer.
