V12 Defiant IGS S3 HRO High Leg Zip Boot E1300.01/03
With input from leading oil and gas companies, we spent two years developing Defiant. The result is a lightweight, flexible design with high levels of comfort and protection. It also includes a specially developed sole to give outstanding slip resistance on scaffold boards, Kennedy grating and other surfaces. The innovative IGS rubber sole unit ensures superb grip on all surfaces and increased cushioning underfoot.
Crafted from supple, water repellent and breathable leather, the seams face downwards to shed water. Combining a lacing system with an efficient zip side, the Defiant is easy to get on and off but fully adjustable for great ankle support. A scuff cap increases durability, and the innovative IGS sole provides superior grip and stability.
Supple, water resistant and breathable S3 leather. A full bellows tongue helps to prevent dirt and water ingress, and an ergonomic padded collar provides added comfort for a driving position.
Deep comfort moisture wicking, highly breathable lining. Cooler in summer and wamer in Winter.
Heel pump shock absorbing footbed. Contoured to support the foot, with air channels to wick moisture and reduce heat build up and odour.
Wide fitting composite non sparking and thermal insulating.
Tested to impact of 200 Joules.
A woven fibre midsole designed to protect from sharp objects entering underfoot.
Inspired by tyre technology and made from highly durable rubber, the IGS sole unit features a unique hexagonal tread ensuring superior traction, ladder grips offering firefighter levels of safety and a re-designed heel strike pad delivering exceptional water dispersal. The IGS is heat resistant to approximately 300°C

“At the end of a day’s work, the removable footbeds should be pulled half out of the boots to help make sure that they dry out and air properly overnight. If you don’t do this you risk the boots becoming smelly and create ideal conditions for bacteria to thrive in.”
“If you get your boots really muddy, brush the worst off then wipe them down with warm water and let them dry naturally. Don’t put them on top of the boiler or in the airing cupboard as this will increase the tendency to crack the leather.”
“Once a month, take out the replaceable insoles and stick them through the washing machine for a freshen up.”
“When leather gets wet repeatedly, the natural oils eventually get washed out and if they are not replaced the leather will crack. You should periodically treat your boots to a dose of Chelsea Leather Food. This will feed and rejuvenate the leather and maintain its water resistant qualities.”
“It’s worth investing in good quality socks made of cotton or other natural material. Besides being another layer of cushioning and insulation, socks play the vital role of wicking moisture away from the foot.”
