IBEX is the only footwear designed for professional roofers to optimize roofing activities. It sheds light on overlooked issues and difficulties that roofers experience with their footwear on a daily basis including shoe stiffness, traction and muscle inflammation. It offers spot-on flexibility, traction support on the roof with anti-cable slip function, and reduces work-related muscle tension that leads to long-term accumulated muscle injury. This footwear is to be used while roofers engage in roofing activities that require walking, standing, crouching and balancing on sloped surfaces.
