2017 Icebug Acceleritas5 First Test

By |March 22nd, 2017|

The upper materials have been updated to a super soft and airy textile, so light and smooth it feels like being barefoot.

The height of the heel cup is slightly reduced in order to reduce pressure at the Achilles tendon. Terrain feel is remarkable thanks to the low profile of the sole.
