We love casual sneakers. But we also love function. That's why we invented Eli – an elegant and minimalistic summer shoe with a stylish, airy upper and some state of the art comfort.
Eli is perfect for summer walking and living, combining the airiness of a sports sandal with the casual sportiness of a great looking sneaker. Engineered mesh upper keeps the feet cool on summer days. Ergonomically shaped last, memory foam insock and midsole roll for superb foot health.
Well-cushioned BUGforce™ midsole results in a soft impact and an approximately 50% better energy return than a standard EVA foam midsole. Elastic cord instead of regular lacing provides an easy on and off feature. The RB9X™ outsole provides traction on Sunday strolls and downtown walks.

RB9X™ – Rubber 9 Extreme is our latest rubber compound development, and it sets a new standard in providing friction. Lab tests (SATRA) show that RB9X™ outgrips the competition, but still matches the durability of an asphalt running shoe. In the real world, that means much more reliable traction in wet and slippery conditions and on challenging surfaces like rocks.– RB9X™ is definitely a benefit for extremely demanding runners with high expectations on the shoes traction in mixed and tough terrain. RB9X™ is a new compound and tests show that we really have succeeded. There’s nothing like this on the market, says Erik Öhlund, member of the Product development team at Icebug and an elite orienteerer. Here you can see the test results from an independent lab, comparing Icebugs RB9X™ on both wet and dry surface, with other known brands.
