Caterpillar Assault Review

A pair of boots may not be at the top of your priority list when welding accessories, but a good pair of welding boots is a must for severe or professional welders.

This is especially true for aerial welding, where anything that falls can burn what you wear.

Instead of ruining good pairs of shoes (or worse, your feet!), Invest in a couple of sneakers that will protect you for years.

Look for a pair in your workshop with a metatarsal protector to protect the toe and laces or a steel toe to protect against bumps or bumps.

This Caterpillar Assault Boot is a traditional ankle-length boot that feels secure and portable.

Her ankles are supported by a padded collar at the top of the boots, which is more comfortable than rubbing.

Metal laces at the front of each boot feel secure without worrying about slipping or loosening.

Rubber outsoles on the shoe prevent slippage and offer excellent traction even in the wettest conditions.

The robust outer material is made of full-grain leather to ensure resistance to water and heat.

The double stitching on the leather makes these boots durable for the most challenging jobs.

The good Caterpillar Assault Review

Once you put them on, you’ll discover that these boots feel safe and supportive.

The ankles are carried by a padded collar on the top of each boot, which provides comfort instead of rubbing.

The metal lacing at the front also makes these boots feel very secure, so you don’t have to worry about them coming loose or slipping.

Thanks to the rubber outsole, these boots prevent slipping in other ways, offering excellent traction even when wet.

If you wear these boots for a long time, your feet will remain safe and protected, as the metatarsal protection protects against shock, heat, and minor chemical contaminants that you might come in contact with.

The natural leather material these boots are made of is highly protective and increases comfort and durability.

After wearing these boots all day in the shop, not only will you find your feet still comfortable, but the breathable lining and insoles will keep them cool and fresh, just the quality you’d expect from one.

The bad

These are pretty heavy boots, so they feel pretty heavy and uncomfortable.

If you bend over frequently at work, the position of the met guard can cause complaints. However, minor complaints are a low price for superior protection.

Some users have mentioned that grommets can be easily broken, but low maintenance can quickly solve this problem.

ASTM-approved midfoot protectors have been developed for these boots to protect your feet from compression or impact.

For added security against falling objects, the Met-Guards were also puncture-proof.

A steel cap and EH protection meet ASTM standards and ensure you are protected while working.

Thanks to the Climasphere lining and the insole of this CAT boot, you can wear it all day with your feet still cool.

The breathable lining ensures that your feet are comfortable at any temperature.
