A durable TPU bridge serves as a stabilizing unit right under the midfoot. Such a lightweight element is attached to the shoe to support the foot when pivoting or changing directions. It meant to lessen the chances of excessive foot rotation, thereby reducing foot aches.

Durable wrapping and supportive padding

The multi-layered textile upper that’s interlaced with TPU foil in key areas has an abrasion-resistant attribute. It forms into a seam-free bootie structure that’s meant to secure and hug the foot as it moves at different trajectories.

The padding around the Achilles and collar is projected to offer heightened comfort. This feature also prevents the foot from jutting out or sliding inside during aggressive shots. Custom orthotics are welcome as this second Defiant Bounce iteration comes with a removable insole. Such soft padding that complements the Bounce midsole is purposed to grant support during landings.

Excellent arch support

Defiant Bounce 2 has a similar length, width, and toebox space as the original all-court profile. Its arch isn't aggressively raised, which benefits those with normal to high arches.
