The new DEFENDER evolves smoothly: it’s much lighter, the upper has been redesigned and its proportions have been reworked. We kept the essentials… but simply improved it… The last is still the same, but with more balance, character and might!
The upper is condensed by only a few millimeters, but when worn, boy it’s a small revolution.
The Vibram rubber is now fitted on all our new DEFENDERS and this is a first: very robust and featherweight Commando sole.
+ Lightweight: this is a gain of 100g per shoe and it has a huge impact.
+ Comfortable: the rubber gives way to the microcellular (rebound and support).
The Norwegian welt gives tremendous allure and an unquestionable structural strength, the dark brown welt blends wonderfully with the sage green. Yes this is more than ever a shoe for long comfortable walks in town or in isolated territories, celebrating elegance in every way. Perfect day after day, under any weathers.
The 2023 DEFENDER Malfroid? Nothing changes. Everything changes.
