Treads of Momentum
The flavor you are setting up here is actually quite nice, conjuring visions of a restless character with fancy, shimmering shoes who really can bowl them over with a bull rush.
The problem is the mechanics you use for getting the extra movement. First, it is counter intuitive. It's not exactly "momentum" if you go faster by going slower in the previous round. You do manage to avoid keeping the total movement constant, but way you are getting the extra movement doesn't seem to match the feeling you're going for. Second, it is a confusing set of rules to read and probably a bit of a bear to track, round to round, since it sounds like it's an ongoing effect.
You clearly have given the consequences of the increased movement a lot of thought. And you tied the extra movement into the bull rush neatly. I voted for these at least a couple of times in spite of the confusion in the middle. But each time it came up I had to read through it a couple of times to understand how it would work at crunch time.
