The British Army has adopted the original Defender boot since 2012. Still in use today these boots have served as the workhorse for Britain's modern military. With a Vibram sole these boots are designed to tackle all types of terrain and come with a shock absorption layer. Paired with a Tri-flex midsole these are somewhere near middle to hard for stiffness so they can withstand grueling military deployments. Made from water repellent Anfibio 2.4mm full grain leather, the upper part of the boot polishes up smart and will resist a good deal of weather.
Although a good amount of time served, these Defenders have plenty more feet to defend yet! Ideal for trekking rough terrain, airsoft or hunting.

The two pairs I got are both branded Karrimorsf. And are absolutely fantastic boots. goretex . and thermal lined . These boots are truly a fantastic made boot . And comfortable, if your after a pair of solid waterproof , winter boots then look no further.
I just applied some dubbing to maintain the look and to re waterproof them .
Wow, no wonder the Brits use these as mainstay boots ! These are freaking awesome, the pair I received, in very good nick, the soles still heaps of tread but yes the heels were both well worn, so a trip to the "sole-man" at kapiti lights complex will sort that out, swapped the issue laces out for Paracord laces and they good to go. Great fit, very comfy and well built.
