Alex Mattsson featuring CAT footwear


A highlight of our extensive work at London Collections: Men was seeing CAT Footwear, the brand notorious for their steel-toed Work Boots, team-up with menswear designer Alex Mattsson for his incredible AW13 installation which featured CAT's iconic Colorado boot in an all-black colour way.Taking inspiration from the large-scale immigration of the Latin Community to California in 1940’s America, with creative direction by stylist Matthew Josephs, the Alex Mattsson collection blends references from kitsch-Americana with Post-war gangster culture. By using the authentic work-boot from CAT footwear, Alex Mattsson completes his interpretation and combining of sub-cultural and signature futurist aesthetics. 

CAT footwear born in 1991 is unique. Authentic, honest and contemporary in design. The all black Colorado boot updates the iconic work boot with simple black on black logo design, smooth leather upper and suede detailing whilst retaining their hardwearing rubber sole unit made to withstand the test of time. Inspired by Caterpillar equipment that builds city skylines CAT footwear is built to resist, in an ethic of work and the challenge of real life without apology.
