I do love these boots - cute but good solid work boots...unfortunately for me they are too tight on the inside of the toe of the right boot (I have troublesome feet so - it's more me than them). The other foot feels fine with my orthotic, they do seem to need the additional support. They are quite heavy and be sure you note they are steel toe so they are rather stiff and clunky. They seem as though they would be warm and are well made, I'm so thankful Caterpillar is finally getting into woman boots. I do need them for work and I appreciate boots that look as though they were intended for a woman. I will likely try them in the wider width with fingers crossed.
I've been looking for a good walking boot and tried 3 other boots before I finally found these great boots. I wasl also hoping I could wear this boot to work. I work on a psychiatric unit and am on my feet almost the entire shift. These Caterpillar boots are comfortable from the get go, easy to pull on and off, have a great cushioned sole, and look great with jeans and skirts. I'm not a girly girl nor can I pull off biker chic so it's been tough finding a good boot that's not too over-the-top manly and brawny. These are awesome. They're roomy enough for me to tuck my jeans in, can accommodate a thicker sock, look good with skirts and tights, and are extremely comfortable. I might add a cushioned insole but will go for a long walk first without, as I do like how roomy they are. The full grain leather is really nice, looks and feels like suede but I understand is more durable and better quality than suede. Really nice boot.
I wear a 7.5-8 and ordered an 8 without checking the size guide first. This was a mistake, because a size 8 is an EU 39, whereas I usually wear an EU 38. The size 8 boots were huge on me. I exchanged them for a 7, not willing to order the 7.5 since that is also listed as EU 39. The size 7 fits really well. I have a wider calf so went for the wide version and am happy I did, as the wide isn't super wide as I found in other brands but wide enough for my legs. This boot hits about halfway up my leg but I'm short - just under 5' 2 1/2". They remind me of Doc Martens without the embellishments. The perfect boot!
Caterpillar had its beginnings in the twilight years of the 19th century when two pioneers of the tractor industry each experimented with gasoline-powered tractor engines. Since that time the company, formed in 1925 as the Caterpillar Tractor Company, has grown to global proportions and now manufactures its products in 50 U.S. facilities and around the world in 65 additional locations.
