As the world's foremost manufacturer of heavy equipment, Cat earthmovers are known around the world as a symbol of honest work, strength and integrity. Cat Footwear makes boots and shoes based on these same principals. The brand has evolved from work boots into a range of industrial and casual footwear built with the sole purpose of staying true to their original goal--creating genuine, hard-working boots and shoes.
I work in a Warehouse, and average 8-10 miles of fast walking per day, from one end of the warehouse to the other. My old shoes gave out on me after 7 months of daily abuse, and I needed a replacement. These shoes are super cute, and fit great. I walk A LOT during the day and average 12-14 hr days 7 days a week, so you can imagine how important good fitting steel toed shoes are for me. They arrived super fast (next day) and look and feel great. My feet dont hurt the end of my day, and these shoes are not very heavy. I'd recommend these to anyone who is required to wear safety shoes!
I've worn these for three days of work and can already say with confidence that they're the best steel toe shoes I've got so far. Firstly, they came in a wide size which allows me to finally wear work shoes that don't squish my toes. My feet are only slightly wide and these gave the little bit of wiggle room I needed. Secondly, they have good support. I walked in them all day (I work in the shipping department at a factory) and my legs and back never hurt. Thirdly, they are BREATHABLE! I get home and my feet are barely sweaty. HUGE switch from every other steel toe shoe I have tried. And finally, they seem very durable while still being light. Granted they have a steel toe, so they aren't as light as regular runners...but they come pretty close. Also, kudos to Amazon. I had to return the first pair they sent me (An uncomfortable ridge in right shoe that rubbed on my toe. Ridge wasn't in left shoe so figured was a manufacture issue and returned them), but they sent me the pair I have now promptly and made it very easy for me to return the defective pair at no cost to myself. I was very impressed.
It's a good steel toe; lightweight, fairly comfortable even after a 12 hour production shift in a factory, and broke in fairly quickly. Downside, not quite a month in and the seams on the top of the shoe are starting to come apart. Not drastically, and I'm pretty sure they'll last several months more. I only paid $30 for them, so I definitely have gotten my money's worth, buuuut I was trusting the CAT name and hoping for them to last longer than a pair of shoes from Walmart.
I love how light they are! There is plenty of room in the toe box. The arch support is sufficient for my feet. What I don't care for is there isn't enough cushion so I added another insole. My heels ride up & down causing my socks to slide down into the shoe. Maybe once the stiffness of the tongue breaks in I'll be able to lace them tighter. I also had to add a piece of moleskin to the heel to take away the roughness. Overall, they're comfortable and I'll continue to wear them with an occasional tweak.
Recommend this steel toe shoe, mostly because they're not too heavy and the price is right. My foot is an 8 wide. I ordered half size up, but didn't need to. The toe insert is wide, so they don't bite my toes when the shoe folds. Recommend you order your regular shoe size, & pick up a good gel insert for those extra long days.
These were definately worth the $68.60 that I spent to replace the more expensive uncomfortable steel toe shoes I previously bought. These definately need another pair of inserts because existing ones are thin. Took out the insert from my previous pair and placed into the caterpillar connexion steel toe shoes which are a good buy. I also have wide feet and can also wear a thicker sock with these. With steel toes go 1/2 to 1 size larger.
Super cute shoes and light but i could feel poking on the inside and out of both feet. I don't know if it was the steel or where the tounge starts. I ordered my regular sz but in wide, i need wide for my toe box. I had enough room but they were flopping a little in the back. The heels are to low for me so that made the flopping worse cause it rubbed. I work on concrete all day and there's just not enough cushion for me even with additional insoles. If i had gotten a 7.5 then they would be to small, it's a losing situation for me when trying to find steel toe shoes. I really like them but can't sacrifice my comfort.
I'm sending these back. I wear an 8 1/2- 9 in womans (9 when I wear thick socks) I got these steel toed shoes in 9 and they were way too big even with thick socks. I would've needed an 8 or 7 1/2. Very stiff. Would not recommend
Très confortable. Même avec un problème au pieds. Excellente qualité.
