Solid, comfortable, and good looking. Decided to branch out from my usual boot in an effort to find something that balanced looks, durability, and (most importantly) comfort--Caterpillar's Abe TX nailed it! I found the break-in period to only last about a day and before I knew it these boots were a perfect fit. The wood-sole adds a bit of noise when walking, but nothing out of the ordinary for a boot of this size/weight. All in all, I've received countless compliments on these boots as well as enjoyed wearing them in the workshop everyday....Money well spent!

Beautiful boots, you need these. I will say, as a former boot salesman, size down a little. Even though they'e lace-ups, if you break the leather in patiently they will fit you like no other.

These boots have a great look, no doubt. However, I ordered a 9 at first, as I wear a size 9 when it comes to tennis-shoes and a 9D for cowboy boots. They were large by a half size so I exchanged for an 8.5. The 8.5 fit. I noticed, after looking closely, that the canvas seemed to be painted/dyed and it was flaking off at the edges. Also, the seam (inward) next to the eyelets was "busted out" and basically not a seam for that 1" or so. The seam at the inside of the tongue, above the arch of the foot, also kind of hurt the tops of my feet. I may have just received a pair from a bad batch. I'll just say that I am extremely picky when it comes to boots, and these didn't give me the same feeling I'd anticipated when I purchased them. If you aren't so concerned about these little things, these boots definitely have a great look and a quality leather. If you are feeling unsure about ordering these boots after considering doing so, I'm sorry. I am merely giving feedback based on the one pair I had that did fit. If you would like a good Caterpillar boot fairly similar in style though, the Caterpillar Morrison is something I would recommend.

Right out of the box, I have to say, I'm liking these boots very much. Their construction feels very solid. I wear a size 8, and they feel true to size. They're very comfortable, stylish, and you can't beat the price! Now Caterpillar's got me looking at their other boots. Haha. Gonna need a pair in black! :)

They're comfortable and breathe well. So far I've really enjoyed them. The leather wears nicely and quickly if you wear them outdoors at all. In the evenings I take my dog to a wooded park about 5 blocks from my apartment and the day-to-day scuffs look nice. I walk to work (~3 miles each way) so I tend to burn through soles pretty quickly. I haven't worn them every day but have probably worn them for around 20 trips to date and the wear on the soles is relatively low. Walking on sidewalk, the hard rubber outsoles definitely click -- though not as loud as a true leather sole. So if noisy shoes bother you, you might want to consider a different pair. Overall, an excellent boot.

These boots are great. I mainly bought them for the look, rather than any other factor, and I've been pretty pleased with them. They're not the most comfortable boot in the world but once you break them in you can wear them & walk in them for a long time without any sort of issue. The soles give me very good traction on slick ice, which is good as I live up north. When I first got them I was concerned they were a bit small, as my left boot pressed down on my toe, but it turned out to be alright. I'd consider getting a half-size higher if you are planning on wearing some heavy-duty socks underneath. I wear a liner sock and a smartwool over that, but wouldn't be able to get anything more in there.

A very good looking boot. I bought for my son-in-law and he loved, but had to exchange for a half size smaller. So it runs big if you are between sizes.

My boyfriend loved these boots. They fit true to size and, so far, hold up really well! He works 9 hours a day, standing, and they are not comfortable under those conditions, but as far as an everyday shoe, they're great.
