A stomping AW14 collaboration between CAT Footwear and luxury menswear designer Alex Mattsson is dropping at Machine A this weekend
Calling all beautiful boys and big-footed babes, you’re in for a real treat. Luxury menswear designer Alex Mattsson has collaborated with CAT footwear to produce a cutting-edge Colorado boot (styled by none other than Wonderland’s very own Matthew Josephs), and it’s stomping into Machine A this weekend.
Having supplied footwear for Alex Mattsson’s AW13 and SS14 presentations and lookbooks, an actual partnership between CAT footwear and one of the UK fashion scene’s brightest sparks made sense. And of course, Mattsson’s interpretation of the Colorado boot makes it more iconic than ever.
With as much substance as style, the Alex Mattsson x CAT footwear Colorado boot makes the most of the brand’s technical features: a stacked sole, a 3M tongue and a unique strap locking system and mix of leathers from CAT’s expansive material libraries.
“CAT has an amazing track record,” said Mattson. “In terms of creative freedom, it’s a dream situation for a designer. It’s limitless in that you can do whatever you want. It’s really exciting to work for a company that can make your ideas happen.”
If you’ve ever wondered how rugged boots became cool, you can credit CAT footwear. Built for life, the Colorado boot internalised the strength and flexibility innate in all CAT machinery into the finest footwear equipment. Since 1991, every Colorado sole has been stamped ‘Walking Machine’ – a testament to how far you’ve come and how far you’ll go.
