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.Read more ›
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.
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.
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.
