The Icebug Pytho4 BUGrip is available in standard running shoe length. It has a medium last to comfortably accommodate medium foot shapes. Icebug offers the shoe in standard D-Medium width for men’s and B-Medium width for women’s.
The shoe uses the BUGrip outsole which is made of a rubber material. It extends from the heel to the forefoot, giving high-wear areas a proficient level of protection and durability. It also gives added grip on different trail surfaces.
Along with the rubber material is the 17 carbide tip studs strategically distributed in the outsole. On the forefoot are eleven studs, one on the arch, and five on the heel. These durable carbide studs offer maximum traction even on icy and snowy running surfaces.
The Icebug Pytho4 BUGrip has a moderate level of cushioning. It uses a compression-molded EVA foam for lightweight cushioning. The EVA is responsive and protective enough for long-distance runs. It also has a low profile for great ground control.
Together with the moulded EVA is the TPU stabilizer which gives a certain level of stability. The midsole offers torsional rigidity and a good amount of support whenever necessary.
The shoe also has a removable EVA sock liner with mesh lining for added comfort and enhanced fit.
The upper of the Icebug Pytho4 BUGrip delivers breathable coverage while preventing the water from entering the shoe. Since it has a water-repellent element, it absorbs a minimal amount of water and if it did, it also dries up quickly.
The TPU molded laminated mudguard prevents the mud and dirt from entering shoe. The durable and protective toebox also guards the toes against sharp trail objects.
