Get ready, cause CAT Footwear is taking a break from the worksite, and stepping on to the runway. Last night, an eager troupe of industry insiders were treated to Footwear and Firewater, a runway show which imediately followed an exhibition that showcased CAT's Autumn/Winter 2013 collection, and a peek at Spring/Summer 2014. The event was held at the Kings County Distillery, beautifully located in the heart of th Brooklyn Navy Yard.
Cat Footwear, a division of Wolverine World Wide Inc. and global licensee of Caterpillar Inc., is a brand that focuses on quality, rugged leathers, old-fashioned craftsmanship, and sophisticated details, all for a reasonable price. During Nolcha Fashion Week, we got to see a preview of Cat Footwear's Spring/Summer 2013 collection, which launches March 20th, and couldn't get enough. The collection features pastels and earth tones, perfect for the warm weather ahead. We particularly love the bohemian look of their sandals, which are made of leather and feature many crisscrossing straps, reminiscent of the gladiator sandal. The Cat Footwear dress sneakers in this collection lean towards the preppy side, but can be worn by any fashionista. The new collection just makes us itch to see the warm weather and have our toes peek out from these summery styles.
