Keeping up with the trend of reconstructed uppers and current technology, the Defy’s mid-height upper takes on a complicated layering of leather, mesh, microfibre and neoprene. Heritage features like tongue perforations and large pull tabs contrast with contemporary design cues – such as the taped, translucent midfoot panels.
An interesting feature is the adjustable ankle lockdown strap and buckle to cinch down the foot. Paired with Zoom Air sole inserts, the Defy looks ready for casual streetball pickup games when needed.
Coming soon to Nike online and selected Jumpman retailers.
