CAT Boots and Footwear. Built on the Caterpillar core values of honest work, strength and integrity Cat footwear has carved itself a unique place in the footwear market with both industrial and fashion designs that are hard wearing, durable and genuinely long lasting. The Caterpillar brand dates back over a hundred years and can rightly claim to have built America. Cat Boots and more recently Cat Shoes continue this heritage to a wider audience.
Formed in the late 19th Century by Daniel Best and Joseph Holt Caterpillar was the first company to develop the continuous track system that now bears its name. The Cat brand features in many aspects of American culture and film with appearances in such diverse films as the Grapes of Wrath and Smokey and the Bandit and who could forget the Cat D9 Bulldozer featured in horror classic Killdozer in which an alien lifeform takes over this World War II earthmoving legend with predictable results.
Cat safety boots are as much a part of heavy industrial work as the hard hat and are designed to give long service to the wearer offering protection from the hazards of the job as well as the weather. Cat fashion boots and shoes share many of these characteristics and have given the Cat brand a whole new arena in which to grow and flourish. Cat walking boots and shoes are both fashionable and practical and cat shoes are an excellent alternative to designer trainers. The Cat brand is now extremely strong in the UK and this looks set to last as long as the buildings and roads its heavy machinery big brothers helped to make.
