They might look like standard athletic shoes, but trust me, the Streamline Sneakers are some real CAT kickers. Their low-profile, everyday sneak style is a shroud of illusion, there to ensure family and friends don't see your footwear and assume you can haul some lumber, install a roof drainage system, or build new kitchen cabinets for them.

Which CATted up in the composite-toe Streamlines, you could. If you wanted to. Or if the price were right.

At their core, CAT Streamlines are work shoes. For safety and durability during DIY and home improvement projects they have:

  • An ASTM F2413-11 non-metallic composite toe
  • T1000 rubber outsole
  • Electrical hazard protection
  • Slip-resistant construction

To maintain comfort, breathability, and your cover as an average dude with no handyman skills whatsoever, the shoes have a nylon mesh with direct inject PU upper, nylon mesh lining, Nylex and molded EVA sock liner, and dual density EVA midsole.

For fans of the Caterpillar brands that do want a work shoe that looks more like a work shoe, plus provides a little fuller foot protection, check out the full-grain leather Parker ESD Work Boot.
