Thank you for your feedback.
The material they have lined the booth with now, unlike previous years, is felt-like and pills and sheds and rolls up.
I convinced him this time to pay a little more and get better quality so they would last longer.
On many different sites these are deemed the most comfortable and durable work boots.

    If I remember correctly, I'm up to my third pair of these boots. The last pair lasted almost exactly two years, and would have lasted longer if I hadn't completely worn down the sole to the point that it was just flat.

    They are definitely solid boots. The soft, strong leather improves over time -- they definitely require a break-in period before they're really comfortable, but they will get there after a week or so. The water resistance is excellent as long as the waterline stays below your ankles.

    I've been using these as my everyday shoes for some time -- they double nicely as motorcycle boots, and since I ride to work whenever the weather permits, these get a lot of use. Some of the wear in the soles is surely because of this, and I have some marks in the leather above my left toe from the shifter, but it's only noticeable up close. Splashes and kicked up water/oil/dirt from other cars is not a problem at all, although in a good heavy rain, water still gets in through the top as it comes through my jeans and trickles down my leg. But that's unavoidable. The boots are also resistant to slippery surfaces like spots of oil on the asphalt. When I put my foot down at a traffic light, I don't have to worry about my foot slipping.

    The use of hooks instead of holes for the ankle part of the boot is a great help in getting them on and off quickly and easily. The only downside to this is that in 12-18 months, the laces will start to fray from being dragged over the hooks over and over. But the laces themselves are strong -- they have a core and sheath composition, so the sheath will eventually give first. Since the laces can still be used for a while with the core exposed, you'll have plenty of time to get another set of laces after the sheath splits.

    Update: 3/4/15 I was helping a friend work on his car (Honda S2000) while I had these boots on. We had to put the car in neutral and push it off the tire ramps. After we pushed it down I tried to take a step away but was stopped at my foot. I looked down and realized the tire was on my foot! It didn't hurt at all and I barely felt it lol. It was at the toe area. There wasn't really much pressure, it felt like it was reinforced. He had to drive the car forward off my foot for me to get free. That was another time I felt good about this purchase.

    My first legitimate pair of work boots. Got them at a good deal for about $40 when a promotion was going on. I can't really compare them to other boots since it's my first pair but generally it seems like CAT products are good and sturdy. I have been wearing these for about 2 months so far and it's given me solid support. It looks nice too. If I had to change anything, it'd be the the metal pieces where you wrap the laces around near the top. But it only gives me a problem when I don't lace it up all the way. Maybe it's my jeans. Otherwise, when using all the slots, it's great. Recommended.

    I have sent them back because they are falling apart for a second time. The replacement pair have come separated only after one month of use. Do not buy these boots, they are garbage,

    The best boot I ever had. I wear them 5 days a week 9 hour days. I was aware they run about 1/2 size big and ordered the smaller size. I will not buy any other boot.

    I am a mechanic and I am on concrete all day long plus use them outside of work. I have bad arches so i get special inserts but overall vey comfaortable boot for the money and they usually last me 5 to 7 months. You will have to buy more insole inserts if you want to last 5 to 7 months. I have been using these boots for 3 years now. To me even Red Wings lasted me just as long but I paid a lot more for them.

    I expected at least a week of discomfort from a pair of new work boots. The first two days in these were a little rough but by day 3 they were surprisingly feeling pretty good. Now they're comfy as hell, tough as nails, and they look pretty awesome.

    Just 3 days into owning these boots I dropped a 300lb generator and thought it missed my foot completely. When I tried to move I found out that the generator was sitting nicely on top of my steel toe. Barely a scratch on the boot.

    Purchased these boots from Mills Fleet Farm in December 2014 when they were on sale cheaper than you could buy them on Amazon. They initially did require a break in time for about a week. I have worn them 6 days a week, for about 10 hours a day since purchasing them in December. They are extremely durable work boots and I am impressed with them. I normally wear down the outside of the soles when wearing work boots walking on the concrete floor in my shop. Looking at the soles now into 6 months of use/wear, no wear is visible on the soles of the shoes!
    The shoe laces are even holding up well into my daily use, showing no signs of wear whatsoever. I have found with other brands that the "round" shoe laces do not stay tied. The caterpillar boot laces are round and these laces stay tied. My shop is located 200 feet from my house and I found the traction walking from the house to the shop this winter in the snow to be excellent. These are excellent boots despite the fact that they are foreign made. I do recommend these boots.
