We were approached by leaders in the oil and gas industry to develop an extreme
performance boot. As well as a strong design criteria (the boot had to be lightweight,
flexible, supportive, easy to wear, slip-resistant etc.) our new design had to exceed
the latest safety standards. So, with the help of industry experts, we went back to the
drawing board. Our research process was extensive – we trialled several materials,
developed new components and tested the final design to the extreme.
The end result of over two years research and development is Defiant – a performance
safety boot that more than matches the intense environments of the oil and gas
industry. It exceeds all industry safety standards and has become the first choice
footwear for the oil and gas workforce.
