REVIEW UPDATE 02.11.2015
4 weeks ago I contacted customer service at CAT, expressing my disappointment with their boots. They said to send them photos of the boots with the damages so they could check it out if is a warranty issue or not. I sent ,(email) ,about 27 pics in different angles of the boots and they said to ship the boots to the warranty center in Michigan( I paid the shipping cost).3 weeks later a new pair of CAT work boots was shipped to me. They gave me the choice to pick a different pair of boots ,in case they don't have the same model I bought, in stock ,so I put up a few models that I tried on before at local store. They didn't have the model I send in for warranty review, so they send me another pair "Caterpillar Men's Diagnostic Hi Cut Cap Soft Toe Waterproof Boot". Now I'm happy again and it's good to see that CAT stands by their product quality.
to give it 5 stars they need to redesign the toe, that rubber you see has nothing under it. there should be leather under it and the rubber to protect the leather, the rubber cracks after 2 months of use outdoors. and now the composite toe is starting to show through.
ok boot if you do warehouse work and never squat, which is where the rubber starts to crack, skip this boot and go for the sheffield boot.
i do not recommend this boot.
In regards to the wearing out: I am now on my 3rd pair in two years. The first pair cracked on the right boot exactly where the black rubber part meets the leather. This started at about the 6-7 month stage. By month 8 they were pretty much unwearable. I ordered a 2nd pair hoping it was a fluke and they were on sale...it was not.
In between pair 2 and 3 and tried a pair of Ariats. They were terrible on my feet. So, back to the Caterpillars. I managed to catch them on sale again so didn't feel quite so bad.
I will update when this 3rd pair start going. They were first worn on April 11th, 2016 so the time is counting down.
So in short: Amazingly comfortable, annoying fragile.
I've had steel toe boots in one form or the other that always hurt my feet or because of how poorly designed the sole was and the lack of cushioning, my feet were tired within an hour of wearing of them-- and I had to endure it for another 9 hours! Getting home to rip those painful things off was the most wonderful feeling ever. However, there was an issue with that too. There were times I felt like I was about to dislocate my heels. Those days are over, I suppose.
I love the look, the fit, and true comfort they provide. Every aspect of this boot is comfortable. Getting your foot in is smooth. There is no need to jam your foot in or find other creative ways to get the boot on. Lacing up is also a breeze. The strings actually seem to pinch into the lace hook and stay there. I just love the look and feel of this boot on my easily-fatigued tootsies. I walked around in these boots for 3 hours and just couldn't believe that I was not uncomfortable. When it came time to take them off, they slid off without catching my heel or trying to hold my ankle hostage. I couldn't believe it. A boot that not only conformed to the contours of my feet but also came off without fighting? Most excellent.
I will follow up in a week, a month, and 6 months. Things can change over time, but I hope to come back each of those times with positive updates. Thanks!

So I have actually worked in these and did a lot of bending over, getting down on one knee, walking on rock beds, and even purposely bumped the toe box into a wooden structure we were about to take down. I didn't experience a tinge of discomfort. My toes didn't slide into the toe box, they didn't scrape against the top of the boot, and when I was in positions that caused my sole to flex, I did not get pinched at the corners or tops of my toes, and my foot didn't start to slide. The boot stayed on and did it's job exceptionally well.

Still wearing them and they are still providing the same superior comfort for hours of heavy-duty labor. Thanks!
Edit : My original review is accurate. For the left boot. I've had to stop wearing these boots because of issues with the right one. Either there is a manufacturing problem or the steel toe cap is slightly shorter than on the left boot. After about the third wearing, the right boot's steel toe felt very sharp on my foot, leaving blisters and raw skin. Wearing two heavy work socks didn't help either. I'm hoping I'll be allowed to return these to the manufacturer for replacement or refund. I've worn Cat boots for several years and this is the first issue I've had.
I'm rather disappointed with this purchase.
