A modern uptake of the classic boot with a twist of everyday, rugged, casual style.

We all remember our first pair of decent boots. I bought my first pair of Cats a decade or two ago when I took a gap year in the UK. They were the classic honey colour worker boot. The jeans were paler, wider legged, slightly rolled up and cool – but my boots, now they had serious street cred! I felt (and looked) really cool walking the streets of London.

So let me introduce you to street cred 2020 – the all-new Cat Fused Mid!

Black is the new (rugged) black

A traditional worker boot no more, these are a modern uptake of the classic boot with a twist of everyday, rugged, casual style. True to its worker-boot upbringing, the outer soles are overbuilt and made to last. And while the soles are reminiscent of Caterpillar engineered truck tyres, the matt black leather uppers with detailed stitching between the panels makes them a very modern, versatile boot.

The best part? They are thoroughly comfortable because of the lighter inner padding, especially around the ankle. Two clip lace hooks at the top keep them nice and snug.

My style tip

I like to wear these with a fairly monochrome look… black skinny jeans and dark t-shirt and puffer. If you’re going to style yourself similarly, throw in a pair of bright socks to shake things up.
