In celebration of the 10-year anniversary of SuperDuty iTechnology, Cat Footwear has released the new Excavator XL line of safety boots.
The global footwear manufacturer’s initial iTechnology was known as the first work boot to merge durability with athletic comfort.
The new Excavator XL iTech builds on its footwear legacy by also offering a new EaseHD (heavy duty) footbed, a rubber bumper on the toe box for extended wear and performance and an extended contoured last for even more room and all-day comfort.
As well, the boots include added thickness in the heel and forefoot to improve comfort, balance, and support of weight.
The ExcavatorXL boot series include a 15 cm, 20 cm and pull-on style, which are available in stores and online this month.
“At Cat Footwear, we build,” said Kim Page, vice president of product Development for Cat Footwear. “Ten years ago, we set the standard for a boot that was built for the work site, yet wore like an athletic shoe, and today, we’re further harnessing the elements of durability and boldness to give our Earthmovers a super duty boot that does it all.”
Cat Footwear designed the boots with a composite safety toe, TecTuff material for abrasion resistance and an ergonomically positioned ankle pod for protection and stability.
The boots retail for US$170 to US$190.
