Much like other heritage brands including Carhartt and Red Wing, CAT work boots have become an iconic symbol of the American workwear lifestyle. The heavy-duty footwear brand was certainly familiar to Martine Rose, a British menswear designer who chose to shoot CAT boots in a lookbook highlighting her own collection. Catching wind of this, CAT approached Rose with an idea for a creative partnership between the two brands that would mix her unique design talents with its functional and durable footwear. The result is a new capsule collection for Fall/Winter 2011 that reworks the classic design of the boot while staying true to its qualities and reputation. Watch the video above to hear what Martin Rose has to say about the new project with CAT.
