These are a GREAT deal! They look fabulous, and fit like a glove from the minute I slipped into them. They have the look and feel of quality. Absolutely true to size. I never owned Caterpillar shoes before, but I will again! They are reasonably and I love their styles.

Good shoe for winter snow and rain.

I read the reviews of this boot before purchasing and was a little skeptical when I opened the box and compared them, sole to sole, against my favorite boot... they seemed about a half size larger so, I was a pleasantly surprised when they fit perfectly. I put both boots on, to try them out, and they felt great. I left them on all day and just forgot about them until I took them off that evening. The only thing that could make them better are tiny air-conditioners so I could wear them all year.

Size was fine. Great looking boot. Very comfortable. Very soft leather. Always considered this a brand for work only. Now my first stop for casual shoes too.

These were comfortable right out of the box, just like my last Caterpillars. I like the style, but I wish they had some sort of toe guard. The fit is good, with a little extra room in the front half, but not enough to feel loose or sloppy. With heavy socks they would be snug. A bit pricey for my blood, but if they last as long as my other pair of Cats I'll be fine with it. What the hell has happened to so many shoe manufacturers, that they can't make a consistent, uniform size shoe anymore? I first bought a pair of Columbia shoes the same size, and could barely get my foot in them. Hang in there Caterpillar.

I ordered these boots along with several others for my husband to try out. He said these ones were literally one of the most comfortable shoes he's ever worn. He likes a soft/plusher foot bed. He literally wears them every day and they've been holding up well considering he is really hard on his shoes. I actually secretly ordered him another pair for Christmas in several months. It's always a bummer when your favorite shoes get worn out and they are no longer available.

I normally wear a 10 and these feel slightly larger. Overall I like these boots. My biggest complaint would be that the color in the photo IS NOT the color of the shoe. Look online elsewhere - the true color is much lighter - more beige. The leather is also not very durable as it scuffs easily and I already have a small nick out of one shoe. So - why did I rate these a 4 star? Got a great deal and for what I use them for - which is sloppy conditions when I'm only going to be out for a while and don't want to wear boots - these are great. They're comfortable. I rubbed some oil into them to get the color darker. They're pretty much my go to shoe when I don't want to worry about what shoe I have on.

These boots/shoes are AWESOME!!! I have worn them for a few months and they are now my favorites. I use them mostly as a casual winter shoe, since they look quite nice, and look just like a shoe under long pants. Important note: I am SUPER picky about shoes; the wrong type of support and I cannot wear them. It is hard (nearly impossible) to find shoes that work. Both Caterpillar work boots and these boots have minimal support, which is PERFECT for me. (you can still add your own inserts, but you don't have to fight with existing support). The Arctic Grip is quite good, and are much better in icy conditions than any regular shoe. They have their limits, and don't hold on glaze ice, but I am quite confident in them for snowy/icy conditions. Really, though, they are now my only winter shoes. Comfy, good looks, stable in winter conditions. FIVE STARS!! (plus one for my finicky feet)

With the Vibram Arctic Grip sole, these boots do help with slipping on wet ice. It's still important to be cautious on ice/snow, though. They are a bit long, but fit well with thick wintery socks. They are waterproof and comfortable for walking in snowy/icy conditions, like for running errands with snowy parking lots, short walks so the dog doesn't get cabin fever, using the snow blower, etc.

Worst fitting shoe I've ever worn.

Brought these for my teen as a waterproof shoe. So far, he really likes them - very comfortable and seem true to size. He usually wears an 11 in athletic shoes and the 11 fits. Might run a tiny bit on the big side if anything, but probably no need to size up/down on these. They seem to be well made-time will tell. I hope they truly are waterproof as listed.. will try to update review once we know for sure.

these boots are very hard to get your foot into with a tight neck opening. gave them away.
Dutch from Drummond Island Mi on January 30, 2019
Nice boot, super comfy, rugged, and pretty darn waterproof from what I can tell. Also, it looks pretty stylish, in my opinion. I recommend it.
Zappos Reviewer on January 15, 2019
It was a gift for my boyfriend he loved them true to size fits perfect
Zappos Reviewer on January 08, 2019
Felt the leather could have been of more substantial quality. Soles are on the thin side. A little overpriced
Zappos Reviewer on November 18, 2018
Very comfortable boots. Size runs a little large but works well with winter socks.
Zappos Reviewer on November 14, 2018
I bought a pair of these for my boyfriend. And he ABSOLUTELY loves them!!!! In fact his oldest son ordered a pair and I also purchased a pair for his 18 year old son because he liked his Dad so much and kept wearing his, so he definitely needed his own pair!!! Great great boots!!! ??

Very good looking boot with jeans or khakis
Zappos Reviewer on November 04, 2018
I bought 6 different pairs of boots as I needed a new pair for motorcycle riding. Of all of the choices the Caterpillar was by far the most comfortable and true to size, right out of the box.

The style of this boot means that it cuts in to your outer foot.
Zappos Reviewer on February 14, 2018
This is the pair of winter boots I've owned, ever! Specifically, I was looking for boots that can deal with icy sidewalks and parking lots. In previous years I had tried to get away with weatherproof hiking boots. But in the last two years I was constantly scared of slipping and falling. These boots were a totally different experience. I confidently navigated walking across most surfaces and also wore them comfortably during snowblowing. I also felt more confident carrying my toddler around when walking on icy surfaces. I can not recommend these enough! (I did return them to Zappos and buy them elsewhere due to a better price, but zappos first turned me on to these boots)

I’m totally impressed with these boots. There are too much soft and comfortable, it’s like to be wearing snickers but better, my feet are warm even at 18 F ????. The traction is from other world. Walking on Ice without worrying about slipping is the best
Manny from Michigan on December 09, 2017
OK, I don't usually write reviews, but these are just SO COMFORTABLE. Got them a few days ago and thought I'd just wear them around the house to "break them in." But no need. They're comfortable and well-fitting right out of the box! Just wonderful. Can't wait for winter!
