The Caterpillar brand takes it origins back to 1904 when its founders, Holt and Best, developed the first successful track type tractor. In 1990 Caterpillar brought their brand and product values into retail by introducing functional footwear for the American Worker. Since the classic Colorado boot was introduced to workers, CAT has come to represent the best in work and urban footwear for men and women, with their safety shoes and boots built to the highest standards. Their products have functional features that enhance comfort and durability combined with classic styles that never goes out of fashion. The current CAT Industrial footwear range is a complete offering from steel-toe shoes to modern work boots with high specifications incorporating steel nail plates, anti-static properties and water-proofing features.
