The Men's icebug Oribi gets its name from an African antelope, known for its speed, grace, and agility. This brand new model for 2017 is both feather-light and feature-packed. The seamless polyester mesh upper is light, non-absorbing and has a welded protective TPU mudgard. The lacing system with integrated laminated ribbons embraces the foot and keeps it in place, along with special laces that keep them from untying. The thin tongue has a sock-like construction, both keeping it in place and making the Oribi fit like a glove. The soft heel cup has a padded collar and firm heel grip. The midsole has an integrated Rock Shield to protect the foot in rocky terrain. The midsole also adds torsional stability and is designed to provide a kick in the last phase of the stride. Medium cushioning and a 7mm drop provide just the right level of support. The tractor tire patterned outsole and the RB9X rubber compound will keep trail runners and everyday users going in all kids of conditions and terrain.
