It happens to the best of us. No matter how long we’ve lived in the mountains of Colorado, we find ourselves struggling to get traction when winter sets in. Trying to get from your couch to your car becomes an Olympic-level feat of agility. If that sounds like a familiar situation, it’s time to consider the best winter boots in Basalt, CO from Icebug.
Behind the need to remain warm and dry, maintaining traction is the most important part of personal safety during the winter. Slips and falls account for countless trips to the emergency room every year. And that’s to say nothing of the unneeded stress that the Colorado penguin walk can have on your joints.
Find yourself a cleat
You might think that a sturdy pair of cleats are only useful on a football or soccer field, but that’s not true. The first rule of traction—no matter who you ask—is finding a cleat that will cut through the snow with sure-footed ease.
The fashion-conscious among us may think that a cleated shoe has to be some bulky offense to good taste, but that’s simply not the case, thanks in part to an independent Swedish footwear company. Say hello to Icebug winter boots in Basalt, CO.
The Icebug solution
You may not be entirely familiar with Icebug yet. The small Swedish company is focused less on growing than on providing a product unique in its field: stylish shoes with unparalleled traction.
Every cleat in every shoe offered by Icebug makes use of patented carbide tip technology to ensure that the grip you get is secure, whether you’re crossing the street on your way to work or climbing a mountain on your way to a hidden lake.
Icebug shoes also incorporate RB9X, a state-of-the-art “sticky” rubber that strengthens the grip to an incredible degree. Best of all, Icebug boots and shoes come in a wide variety of styles ranging from classic sneakers to sleek mountain boots and everywhere in between. Icebug even has an extensive array of vegan footwear for the discerning customer.
