A nice waterproof winter boot with studs. Fern W BUGrip GTX® is a reliable shoe for all the trials of winter. The 14 BUGrip studs can cope with slipperiness and ice, and the GORE-TEX® membrane keeps the feet dry.

Fern W BUGrip GTX® is a shoe with all the technical details you can and should expect from an Icebug shoe. Plus it is attractive and works with most styles of clothes. The lined high shaft is waterproof and warm, and the long zip on the side of the foot makes the boot easy to put on and take off. A memory foam insole combined with a well-balanced midsole make Fern a shoe you can wear for hours. Under the sole there are 14 BUGrip carbide steel studs that can easily cope with winter slipperiness and ice, while you can walk for miles on asphalt without worrying about the studs wearing out.

For what: Winter walks when grip and dry feet are all-important
Why we made the shoe: We wanted to make a really warm and comfortable shoe for long winter walks.

BUGripBUGrip® is the name of Icebug’s grip technology for the most slippery conditions. A BUGrip sole is made of a special rubber compound and has 15-19 integrated steel studs. The design of the studs, together with the properties of the rubber compound, give these studs a dynamic function. The studs work independently from each other and are not completely fixed. When weight is applied the studs push in toward the surface of the sole. How far they are pushed in depends on the pressure exerted by the user and the resistance from the ground. This dynamic function makes the studs adapt to the surface and provide the best possible traction on anything from dry asphalt to pure ice. ICEBUG® Technology Performance Information The purpose of the ICEBUG® technology is to provide traction on slippery surfaces. The manufacturing of outsoles with this technology is a complex process. Since the most important component is rubber – a natural material which performance is not possible to entirely control – there might be cases of premature loss of studs from the outsole. Therefore, outsoles with ICEBUG® technology are designed and manufactured with a surplus of studs. The function of the technology is maintained even if losing 3-4 studs on one outsole. After usage in wet conditions, the head or sides of the studs might get a surface layer of rust. However, the relevant part of the stud for providing traction is the carbide tip, and this will not be affected. Warning: No guarantee against slipping. Products with ICEBUG® technology are not recommended for indoor use.
