Virtually all who reviewed these boots say this boot is extremely comfortable.

Caterpillar_Mens_Hydraulic_Mid_Cut_Steel_Toe_Boot-1Some said that the most comfortable they have ever worn in whatever conditions happened to be.

  • Well, this same claim has been made about several of the other work boots that we have reviewed.
  • I just have to assume that those who said that these CAT® Hydraulic Mid Cut Steel Toe Boots were the most comfortable that they had ever owned in their entire lives, had not ever bought any of those other boots on whose reviews I have reported.

A couple of the reviewers of this Mid-Cut work boot who said it was the most comfortable, qualified their comments with the fact that they are the most comfortable work boots in the mid-price range.                 Go

Quite a few reviewers of this mid-cut steel toe boot commented that the boot is lightweight and firmly gripped, in addition to being comfortable. ... More advantages when you are wearing them through a full or a double shift.

A significant reason for the great comfort of these CAT steel toes, as reported, seems to be the well designed, lightweight, comfortable foot bed.


  • Reviewers said they could not feel anything on the ground while wearing these work boots, and with full all day wear, feet don’t ache at all.

As with the reviews I have read of many work boots, a minor complaint seems to be that the laces eventually actually wear out.!

But I guess that a new pair of laces every year or so won’t exactly change your lifestyle.

Even in the one, less than stellar review I saw, starts out with how comfortable these boots are!

Comfort right out of the box! ... For 8 hours!

  • Then he then goes on to say that they scuff too easily and they have no resistance to wear, then he thanks Caterpillar for a great product.

Quite a few of the reviews for the Caterpillar Men's Hydraulic Mid Cut Steel Toe Boot are written in Spanish, so I’m not sure what they say exactly, but I don’t often run across that, so I thought it worth mentioning.

One review was from a woman’s mother who had bought them for her daughter to wear on her rescues.

  • She is a flight nurse and reported that she had no problems getting her feet in these boots in and out of the helicopter and crash sites, so for those reasons, she loves them and no doubt will buy them again.

Another proud mother reported that the pair that she had bought for her son are good looking, stylish enough to wear into the office and anywhere else he goes, from office work to shovelling snow.

A young man shared that he had bought a pair of these Caterpillar Men's Hydraulic Mid Cut Steel Toe Boots for a job in the electronics industry.


Life happened and he ended up in the fast food industry and much to his surprise and pleasure, they are GREAT kitchen shoes! Steel toe, non slip, shock resistant, heat resistant, and the most comfortable shoes ever! Even sneakers!

  • So if you are expecting a stint in fast food or if you find yourself in a surprise situation like our reviewer did, buy these boots and wherever you go, you’ll be all set!

Quite a few of the reviewers mentioned that they really did not like wearing steel toe boots but were required to wear them for their jobs.

Well, these Mid Cut Steel Toes completely changed their minds.

  • They said that with the unparalleled “right out of the box” exceptional comfort and at that price, they would be happy to wear these boots for the rest of their working lives.
  • A few of these reviewers are on their 3rd and 4th pairs.

If your job includes oil and grease on your work boots, these CAT Hydraulic Mid Cut Steel Toe will be just fine.


Quite a few of the reviewers who have jobs that require oil, chemical and grease “sloshing”  are completely happy with the performance of these boots.

  • In those conditions, the anti-slip grip of the soles was mentioned with a lot of appreciation!

After all, who wants to go through an upending during a perfectly good work day?

"I am now on my 3rd pair of Cat® Hydraulic's in 5 years".

"As a heavy truck mechanic I am on my feet 12 to 14 hours a day."

  • "Unlike my old Red Wing boots, my feet don't hurt at the end of the day."
  • "They hold up well to the oil and grease they come in contact with."
  • "They last about 1 & 1/2 years on average."
  • "No other boots have lasted me this long."
  • "Even though I buy the regular width, the steel toe is comfortable on my wide foot."
  • "They feel great right out of the box, unlike most boots or shoes."
  • "Thanks Cat for a great product!"
  • "They do get a bit hot in summer and all steel toe's suck in the cold."
  • "But to meet my job requirements (ASTM rating and electrical hazard) they are the most comfortable I've found."
