i work security at a private resort and needed a boot with good looks, good traction and i will be using them to ride my motorcycle when weather permits.these are the best boots i have purchased ,i put them on right out of the box and have worn them every day since(there has been no breakin,no hurt no time iwished i could get them off.) have had very good compliments on them.in all i would have to say they are greattttttttttttt.i will surely buy them again.
I have worn these same Cat boots for years. I buy 2 pairs at a time and stick one box under the bed. I have never worn the soles out. You just can't do it. After about a year, even though I scrub them on occasion with dish soap and let them dry, they look too nasty to continue to wear (I am in the office half of the time and in the field the other half). I keep the old ones for hiking, mudding and mowing the yard, etc. and the old ones continue to perform for another year or so. Quality leather uppers and excellent soles. I don't like breaking in new boots but thes only take about two weeks with alternating days between the old ones with the new ones.
The only complaint that I have is that they come in wide foot sizes and I have narrow feet. I get the narrowest that they make (or that I can find) and they are still a little wide. So I buy those real thick sweat socks. Apparently most people don't have this problem or Cat would make them narrower.
These are my favorite boots. I work in Solar and spend a lot of time on the roof in all types of conditions -- rainy, snowy, etc. I first bought a pair of these boots about 3 years ago, and I buy a replacement pair just about every year. As long as they keep making them, I'll keep wearing them.
The boots are everything you would expect from a product that bears the Caterpillar name. I wanted a pair of footwear that I could wear for everyday use to withstand the elements and encounters of life without worrying if my shoes are slowly falling apart on me and these sure do take that worry away. They are water proof and if they start getting dirty just hose them off under water and they look shiny like new once again. They are comfortable and feel like they are going to last me years. I actually don't see them falling apart with how durable they are built so as far as new footwear goes I guess it depends if I find something else I simply just want to have because these are my all around everyday footwear that I wear for everything I do: shopping, eating out, outside endeavors, working, etc. They are fashionable too and don't look like a ruggy pair of shoes which means you can literally wear them for nearly any occassion and not worry about trying to impress anyone because they are already impressive.
