Vibram Arctic Grip

No matter your age, level or coordination – wet ice can take down just about anyone. Or at least that was the case before Vibram changed winter for good with their brand new Arctic Grip technology.

A mixture of their Arctic Ice Grip and their dry ice compound, IceTrek, these new rubber bottoms deliver what the brand is calling their “most advanced weather gripping system” ever. Despite the new technology, the 79-year old Italian company’s kept design aesthetics in line with what we’ve come to expect. Instead of going for something gaudy, the team decided to add on a slight thermochromatic flair – making it so the lugs on the soles shift color when the temperature goes below 32 degrees. According to Vibram, neither the non-slip stick nor the color-changing soles will wear out even after several miles of abuse. Vibram plans to debut the technology this fall on several models including the Merrell Moab FST Ice+ Thermo Waterproof, Sperry Cold Bay Ice+, and the Wolverine Crossbuck FX Ice+ among others.
