CAT FOOTWEAR – COMPANY HISTORY

Caterpillar comes from a world of industry and action. A world where you can build anything. Where
effort is everything. Where hard work pays off. This is our truth. And this is the catalyst for our future.
Caterpillar makes the machines that move the earth. At Cat Footwear, we design, engineer and craft
footwear for the earthmover in all of us. What originally began as a small collection of work boots
has grown into a lifestyle brand from work boots to casual and fashion footwear for men, women and
children, sold in nearly 150 countries worldwide. From the job site and far beyond, Cat Footwear is an
authentic heritage brand inspired by hard work and driven by real-life challenges.
