Torne is a newcomer in the Icebug collection. The high shaft is insulated GORE-TEX® Partelana, a very warm wool blend. The shaft provides stability and shelter from cold conditions and together with the insulation it will keep feet warm in as low temperatures as -30°C during normal activity. The upper is made of bluesign® Polyester mesh and Gold rated (LWG) suede and has a GORE-TEX® membrane that is 100% waterproof. The mudguard goes all the way around the shoe to give extra durability and protection. Full front lacing for easy access and fit adjustment. Torne has a thick insole with Woolpower lining that adds both insulation and comfort in cold conditions. BUGrip outsole with dynamic studs provides safe winter traction.
For what: Cold snowy conditions. Why we made the shoe: Torne aims at people looking for a warm insulated and waterproof winter boot for cold days out in the snow.
BUGrip outsole with 14 dynamic steel studs. Insulated and prepared for very cold winter days. Waterproof GORE-TEX® membrane.
BUGrip® 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.
