At 280 grams (US9) the Oribi BUGrip weights in as one of the lightest winter running shoes to date.
The Blue Sign poylester upper is smooth and durable and just enough water repellent to keep the feet dry when running in snow or even light rain. 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 7 mm drop provide just the right level of support and cruise control. Dynamic character of studs means completely civil performance on asphalt, and awesome grip on ice and slippery trails.
