In 1925, C.L Best Tractor Co. and Holt manufacturing company joined forces and founded the now renowned Caterpillar equipment brand. Ever since, Caterpillar has been committed to providing the best tools possible to get any job done. Taking advantage of this time-trusted brand, footwear giant Wolverine World Wide licensed the name and formed Cat Footwear, a working man’s brand that lives up to Caterpillar’s hard-working reputation. Cat Footwear began with a small collection of work boots designed to stand up to challenging worksites. For nearly two decades, the company has continued to build an honest heritage by designing and engineering comfortable, durable work and lifestyle boots for people all around the world.
