Cat Footwear Men's Flexion Generator Waterproof Boot Steel Toe Product Shot

ERGO comfort system supports the natural movement of your foot to enchance stability, flexibility, and comfort. View larger.

Diagnostic Work Boot: Anatomic Fit for All-Day Comfort

Using Cat Footwear's ERGO comfort system, Diagnostic Hi is specifically designed to support the natural movement of your foot, and is anatomically correct to enhance stability, flexibility, and comfort. Unlike boots with a flat, generic shape, this boot is built with specific contours to support every step you take. The high-cut, 6-inch shaft is generously padded for support that lasts all day, and a steel toe lends extra strength.

To keep you protected in cold and wet weather, 200 grams of thermal insulation keeps your feet warm while nylon mesh lining keeps them dry and a waterproof, full-grain leather upper stops moisture from invading the interior. For added support, the Diagnostic has a removable, perforated EVA with gel technology to cushion impact and a high-performance, slip-resistant rubber outsole for a steady step.

Edgework Pull-On Boot: Rough, Tough, and Ready

The 10-inch Edgework is a pull-on, Wellington-style boot that's as rough and tough as it is stylish. This boot features SuperWelt construction for forefoot flexibility and years of reliable performance as well as a full-grain mahogany leather upper for classic good looks. Waterproofing from toe to heel makes the Edgework a trusted friend in fair or foul weather.

Torsion: Athletic Shoe Style with Work Boot Durability

A sporty, low-profile shoe that stands up to wet weather without sacrificing style or comfort, the Torsion looks like an athletic shoe but easily handles tough environments thanks to its steel shank and cement construction. The 100 percent waterproof suede uppers keep snow and rain from slowing you down, while soft nylon mesh lining and a shock-absorbing Poliyou sock liner work together to keep you treading in comfort. A long-lasting molded rubber outsole provides a steady grip on a variety of terrain.

The Alaska: Cat Footwear's Classic Work Boot--Now Waterproof

The Alaska FX Boot takes the classic Cat work boot design and makes it waterproof for more versatility and reliable performance in all kinds of environments. This dependable style features TechniFlex construction for superior flexibility, Goodyear welt construction for comfort, and a steel toe for unbeatable strength. A tumbled full-grain leather upper combines nylon mesh lining and a removable polyurethane outsole for all-day comfort and breathability. To keep you safe on the job site, the Alaska is electrical hazard approved and has a nonslip outsole that also resists oil, water, heat, and abrasion.

Flexion Generator and Manifold: Hard at Work, Easy on You

The Flexion Generator and Flexion Manifold Work Boots feel as good on your feet at the end of a long shift as they did when you first put them on thanks to their ERGO comfort system. Flexion is designed to work with the natural movements of your feet, so that at the end of the day you are less fatigued. On top of that, these boots feature: a waterproof, high-tech abrasion leather upper to withstand the elements, a steel toe for extra strength, and comfort features like a removable EVA sock liner, PU mold midsole, and Flexion engineered construction to keep you going longer.

The Flexion Manifold is available in a 6-inch height, while the Flexion Generator comes in both a 6-inch and an 8-inch version.

    I drive semi for a living,I am in and out of my truck making deliveries in all types of weather, I needed a new pair of boots that were number one comfortable, water proof, and warm in the winter.In the past I have tried other top name expensive boots that you could only buy at their stores among others. I can say that the Caterpillar Generator Waterproof boots so far are far superior to any boot I have ever worn. They are very comfortable, from the first time I put them on I knew I had bought the right boots and they keep my feet warm and dry. I would highly recommend them to any one.

    In a big rig, we deliver for Starbucks, 20 stops on a route, therefore, 40-60 trips WITH A HAND TRUCK (dolly) down a 30 degree ramp with a 5-stack (250 lbs) or 6-stack (300 lbs) of milk PER TRIP (((each crate is 6 gallons @ 8.33 lbs per gallon so 50 lbs per crate x 5 or 6 crates PER HAND TRUCK TRIP...))):
    (1) ALL OTHER SHOES LEAVE OUR FEET SUPER ACHEY---almost too painful to walk the next day LIKE WE'RE WALKING ON NAILS...
    (2) These Flexion Generator 8s are amazing !!!
    (3) 8 hours to break in
    (4) like 6-inch springs are under your feet all 14-hours of the shift
    (5) feet feel just as good at end of shift as beginning of shift
    (6) 100 degree Fahrenheit temperature for first 4 hours of 12 hours on the delivery route I THOUGHT THEY'D GET TOO HOT---BUT THEY DIDN'T perhaps the frequent entry into Compartment 1 at -6 to 0 deg F to pull the pastry and Compartment 2 @ 34 deg F to pull the milk, totes, warmings, juices HELPED COOL THEM DOWN (and no sweating inside boot)...
    (7) *** When going down the ramp FORWARD with all footwear, the 300-lb cart accelerates and as you use good footing TO SLOW IT DOWN, IT TRIES TO RIP YOUR SHOES OFF AS THEY STICK TO THE RAMP: THE TRICK HERE IS TO MAKE A CONSCIOUS EFFORT TO WALK ON YOUR HEELS (((the 1st half of the ramp to keep the down hill speed under control))) AND THAT MINIMIZES THAT FORWARD FOOT SHIFTING which causes the STEEL TOE to slightly PINCH YOUR OUTER TOES (((the wearing double socks trick also adds enough PADDING against that pinching effect, also!))).
    (8) Amazing grip (SRX Extreme Slip Resistance) was IMMEDIATELY noticed on the "cheese grater" 30-degree angle, pull out 12-foot ramp BOTH UP AND DOWN DIRECTIONS and ON FRESHLY MOPED FLOORS (still wet) and on SPILLED SLIPPERY MILK. Bam!

    My husband has previously purchased these work boots from a retail store nearby. When it came time to replace them he asked me to look around online. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that they were about $25 cheaper on Amazon, and they arrived within a few days.

    My husband has a labor intensive outdoor job so he goes through work boots like water. He has tried every brand, and these are his favorite so far. They breathe, they are durable, and very shock absorbent. He had me order two pairs just in case they are discontinued before he needs them again.

    This is a great work boot. It is waterproof, insulated well, and has a steel toe that is not obtrusive. Not too heavy and is very comfortable. The laces are designed well and they are easy to put on and take off. Highly recommend.

    I am writing this quick review to let interested people know that although the item description doesn't mention it, these boots are EH certified and this is shown (marked EH) on the orange label behind the tongue along with the other certifications like C75 for steel toe, etc. The box doesn't mention it either but the boot label does. Many jobs require their employees to wear boots that meet certain safety specifications. In fact, the label gives the following certifications: ASTM F2413-11 M I/75 C/75 EH
    I found the boot to be very comfortable and flexible. That Flexion feature really works well. I also found the toe area to be roomy in a 13w which is my normal size. I normally buy Wolverine and Timberland Pro boots and this is my 1st pair of Caterpillars. Time will tell if they perform as well for me. If they keep my feet dry, warm, comfortable and protected this winter then I will be buying more Caterpillar boots in the near future.

    This has been my boot of choice for 25 yrs. My usual style was Indiana but I thought I would try this one. I am very pleased that they are as good as expected. I work construction and needed something waterproof.

    I wasn't sure which ones to get for I read lots and lots of reviews before purchasing. This boot had a lot of positive feedback so I ordered them for him. At first, he said they were really stiff and uncomfortable. I told him that one reviewer had said the same thing, that they needed to be broken in. That person was right. After breaking these in for about 2 weeks, he doesn't want to take them off. He would rather wear these boots over his new tennis shoes. I haven't asked him yet, but he'd probably be down for having some *sexy time* in his boots LOL
