Icebug by any other name is a great shoe!

Great Winter Footwear for Walking your Dog

I first tried icebug with their great running shoe. It's one of my favorites. Until now.

I am thrilled to review the METRO-L BUGrip in my favorite color, red. Not only do they wow right out of the box, they fit like a glove. My only regret is that I did not receive these sooner for my Park City, Utah ski adventure. However, it’s still winter in Idaho and the icebug has already rewarded me on early morning walks with my dog.

But I digress. The icebug has an urban look with outdoor function. Warm, comfy, convenient with medial 8mm zipper and soft elastic top cuff the boot has carbide studded outsole which gives confidence on ice but walks completely civilized on pavement and other surfaces. Full suede upper wraps the foot for comfortable fit and clean-cut look. Elastic top collar makes for easy entrance and no abrasion when walking. Achilles pull loop and grippy silicone zipper pull tab make for convenient on and off even with bulky clothes. Running shoe platform with ESS stabilizer and lots of forefoot rocker make this a fast walking foot friendly boot.

This is a great boot; stylish, comfortable and the icebug brand makes this a great investment.
