Gain Traction — Whether you are a Runner or Walker!
Icebug sent me these Icebug DTS3 RB9X GTX (ARV $180) Shoes with Traction on Ice and Wet Surfaces
Slipping and falling keeping you from being active?
My mother was an avid walker for most of her retired life. She enjoyed cruising around the neighborhood, no matter the weather, where she could be found chatting with neighbors and handing out medical advice. Alas, she slipped on ice at her mailbox and broke her leg in two places and it put her out of commission for 9 months. She wished that she had been wearing better foot gear, shoes with traction on ice and wet surfaces!
The RB9X outsole provides superb traction even on wet surfaces, yet it matches the durability of an asphalt running shoe.
The Icebug DTS3 RB9X GTX which I was sent, has a Boa lacing system to ensure perfect fit in this waterproof trainer. The Distance Training Shoe (DTS) is great for athletes but a perfect choice for women over 45 as it’s design with comfort in mind. They have soft padding in the collar and tongue, and a foot shaped ergonomic last that your feel will love instantly. I also liked the arch support.
The comfy engineered mesh upper makes sure your foot is protected, stable and comfortable all day long. The high torsion and fully cushioned midsole result in a stable shoe that also protects from over-pronating. The upper has a waterproof GORE-TEX membrane that turns this version of DTS into a three-season companion. The RB9X outsole provides superb traction even on wet surfaces, yet it matches the durability of an asphalt running shoe. Can you say versatile?
PSST: the DTS3 RB9X GTX runs a full size small so order up by one full size. I take an 8.5 and ordered a 9.5 and it fit perfectly.
Icebug notes that the DTS3 RB9X GTX is for the avid runner to the light walker, the waterproof DTS3 RB9X GTX provides comfort, stability, and traction to support all levels of everyday training.

These shoes would be perfect for an older person ehose balance is not too good. They’d help grip and they’re attractive!
