Comfort
toe covering material tears along stitching - by , May 06, 2019
2/ 5 Stars
boots are sized well and comfortable, BUT after a couple of months the material covering the toe tears along the stitching along the sides. from the welt to the eyelet. for the price it is definitely a big problem. I thought I was buying a better boot, but other than fit and comfort they are like Walmart boots. purchased 11/19/18 today is 5/6/19

Terrible Quality. - by , Jan 10, 2019
1/ 5 Stars
I love the way these boots look and how comfortable they are, and they are probably one of the most comfortable boots I have owned. Unfortunately the quality is just awful. I gave these boots multiple tries but they just cannot seem to last more than a couple months, if that. After purchasing my first pair, one of the lace hooks broke off after wearing them only 4 times. I didn't even get a chance to break them in before they started falling apart. But, I liked the boots so much I got a second pair just to give it another chance. The second pair lasted me less than 2 month before the stitching started to come apart on the front side, where the leather and the rubber meet. On top of that, the laces also started to break around the same time. I am just very disappointing on how terribly these boots are made, especially from a company like Caterpillar. Also, I work in a warehouse and drive a forklift half the day,so its not like I gave these boots a real beating or anything. I wish there was an option to give less than one star, because that is the what these boots deserve.

Low Durability - by , Oct 18, 2018
2/ 5 Stars
I got the boots right after winter time as my previous CAT boots were faking apart after two years. I got this pair because it looked tougher than my last ones. I was definelty wrong. The rubber like material on the toe started ripping near the seams and at the tip of the boot. I can admit that I am tough on boots I'm my line of work at an Agricultural technician. This pair only lasted 9 months. I can say they have always been very comfortable though. I was going to switch brands after this, but customer service has been great about this issue and is working with me to resolve my problem.

Very comfortable, but not durable to daily use - by , Oct 18, 2018
2/ 5 Stars
First, let me start off by saying right out of the box these boots were very comfortable to wear all day. They've stayed comfortable for the entire time I've been wearing them. But I've only had these for about 10 months, and I only wore them for about 7 of those months daily. The area of the boot around the toes, with the black material covering the steel toe, started to crack and tear from daily use. I should say that in my job they do not experience anything besides very general walking and kneeling. The black material developed holes in the tops of them where the material is creased when I tie them. On the sides of the boots where the stitching is, between leather and material, the material has ripped away from the stitching. You are able to see what appears to be the insulation the rips are prominent enough. It's definitely disparaging as I really loved these boots because of their comfort, but just got another pair of boots because I didn't want to wear boots that wear falling apart. I should have looked up the boot before I bought them, but I can't take that back now. I bought them from Meijer and I don't have the receipt anymore as I thought I'd have them for years so now I'm just stuck with them for a nice general winter boot I guess and the insulation still works, but I suspect the water proofing may no longer be good.

Toe does not hold\up - by , Oct 10, 2018

The boots tore open at the toe. This is the second time for this boot. I had gotten a replacement pair earlier in the year. I wish that I had tried a different style. The soles and leather upper are still in great shape.

Awesome boot to start..... - by , Oct 01, 2018
1/ 5 Stars
It was a great boot to start with. I work outdoors in an environment with a fair amount of sand, which gets in my boots-any boots i purchase really. After one month, i noticed, somehow sand was finding its way into the footbed of both boots, like between the sole and the main interior layer, Now after 3 months, they have become almost unwearable. Ive tried to maneuver the sand around to find a way out to no avail. It was a comfortable boot to begin with, and the rest of the boot has held up, would be great in a indoor enviroment......but the sand lump in the sole will mean new boots or tearing the lining out.......

Awesome... Except the one issue outweighs so much greatness.... - by , Sep 30, 2018
2/ 5 Stars
This is at least the 8th pair of Cat Boots I have owned over the last 10 years. I always keep two pair on hand, because you never know when you are going to need to head out for that next job, that next adventure, or that next weekend project with your buddies, and there is always the looming "Honey Do List" (which we always do with a smile right?) However, after owning three other pairs of Manifold boots, this pair I bought most recently, is not the same boot. I wear a 9½m, (US standard sizing) that is the same size I have worn for the entirety of my adult life. I have always put my aftermarket insoles in my boots, and have Never had an issue before. However this pair fits very shallow and so much more narrow in the toe box. So much so in fact, that the steel toe rubs the top of my toes and along the inside of the front quarter of the ball of my foot area. Thinking it could have been my thicker wool socks, I replaced them with Darn Tough socks, and still the rubbing. I took out my aftermarket Insole, I had to assume it was the insole, right? Wrong. The top of my foot was okay now, but the side rubbing continues. So much so that I put moleskin with a piece of gorilla tape on that part of my foot each day I wear them. I wish I had bought them on sale, maybe then I wouldn't be so frustrated, however, it also probably won't keep me from buying Cats in the future, however, I will be sure to take new insoles and my heaviest socks with me each and every time I buy a pair, because it seems you can't just walk in to the shoe store anymore and find the boot you would like, grab them in your size and know the fit will be true. With this toe box sizing issue, I am quite sure I am looking at at least a 10 if not a 10½ in my favorite boots now. I always like to close with the amazingly awesomeness of the product and why I am willing to bend a little to have this superior product. The soles are amazing, impervious to rain, mud, oil, gasoline, paint, even dog poop, they hold to the ground so you can focus on your task at hand. When Cat says waterproof, Cat means waterproof. (I still 3M scotch guard each pair I get just to be double safe at the seams) They don't mess around, double stitched inner and outer seams keep your feet dry even when tramping through the slews of the south. Even the tongue is sewn to the with in the top two eyelets to keep debris and moisture away. Forget busted eyelets, less comparable boots will end with plastic eyelets at the top where you need them to be strongest. Cat always uses a metal set of eyelets. Allowing for a good tight hold all day, forget tying and retying your boots, you put these boots on and they stay all day. Cat, I would give you 10 stars, if not for the areas rubbed raw. These are my backup pair; and my old pair is still my daily pair. I'm hoping when it comes time for me to have to replace my tried and true boots, this toe box issue is resolved. (PS I did size my feet using the tried and true Brannock device, and I am still a 9½m US Standard... Just wanted you to know my almost 40 year old feet haven't grown a size!! LOL) Thank you Cat for your boots and gear, just missed the mark in this pair.
