The Caterpillar Fall/Winter 2016 collection unveils three fully waterproof boots — Sire, Elude and Prez — to tackle the elements. We take a closer look at what these three wonders have to offer.
Leading the pack is the Sire (S$189), and following closely are the Elude (S$169) and Prez (S$169). The footwear are classics in their own right, mirroring hiking boot aesthetics but with tweaks for the modern city explorer.
All three boots are made from waterproof full-grain leather, with sealed seams to keep moisture out, meaning there’s no need to fiddle with aftermarket water repellent products at all.
Furthermore, cement construction and solid stitching ensure that come rain or shine, the boots remain sturdy and ready for action.
These heavy duty features are complemented by nylon mesh lining and a microfiber footbed for all-day wearability. A rugged outsole makes these Caterpillar boots ideal for walking on rugged terrain and offer extra grip for slippery surfaces.
Caterpillar has not left comfort out of the equation, inserting EASE technology into the midsole to make each and every step a comfortable one. EASE is 10-15% lighter than standard EVA and provides better shock absorption and bounce back.
Pairing these boots is a cinch, as they match your favorite denim pieces easily. Complete the look with a matching top, and take these rugged kicks out for a walk!
