About Icebug ShoesPreviously, only the craziest would try endurance running on ice. This all changes with Icebug, a first-of-its-kind studded running shoe for all winter conditions.
Icebug Shoes: Timeless Scandinavian DesignIcebug Canada is the brainchild of an unexpected familial partnership between mother and son. Started in Sweden in 2001, the brand began as a small footwear company that had reached international audiences and the unwelcome pressure of revenue-focused businessmen. Mother Eliza Törnkvist and son David Ekelund wanted to create a new product that simultaneously solved an issue and inspired generations.
Influenced by a standalone review in Runner’s World of a studded shoe that never received prominence, Ice bug Canada realized what other brands did not. You could, in fact, create a slip-resistant running shoe that not only allowed you to run in dangerous ...conditions, but that looked stylish as well. With this epiphany, the legacy of Ice bugs was started.
Using her established background in footwear design, Eliza creates a product that draws inspiration from her Scandinavian roots. Studded shoes are no longer reserved for the elderly; they’re an eye-catching, functional solution for winter athletes that Altitude Sports is proud to stock.
Dedicated to a Positive Climate FootprintA core philosophy of Ice bugs Canada is making it easier for people to get out in nature. This isn’t possible unless we all take steps towards sustainability, preserving the outdoors for decades to come. Icebug designs its products in an intentional way, ensuring that environmental friendliness is never sacrificed for material profit. Every shoe model is continuously analyzed to see if better, less-impactful materials can be utilized.
In the Spring of 2019, Icebug became the first climate-positive manufacturer of outdoor shoes. With climate-saving investments, our entire production process is guaranteed to actually reduce the amount of carbon emitted into the atmosphere.
