As we charge ever forward into the world of tomorrow, there are always new pathways to forge. Sometimes, those paths are taken alone: pushing tire- lessly into the unknown, innovating for the future. But sometimes, those paths converge, uniting like-minded forces en route to the road ahead.

Today, two innovators don’t just cross paths – they create a new one. Turbocharging workwear for tomorrow, the AW23 both x Cat footwear collaboration marks a meeting of minds and methods.

The Gao Pioneer blends time-honored workwear traditionality with the treads of tomorrow. This hybrid boot, powered by innovations from both and Cat Footwear, combines Cat’s classic workwear colourado upper but amps up the futuristic feel with an armour-like no-sew cage application and robust hardware. An overbuilt rubber toe cap amplifies the Cat workwear heritage.


The upper sits across both’s own icon – its GAO EVA sole, in an original marbled effect. Completely unique to the brand, this is a boldly oversized, cleated outsole that is as practical as it is bold, blurring the line between workwear and fashion

In its Honey colourway, the marble sole plyas with warm earthy tones, with its neon branded highlights standing in future-facing contrast.

In its Black colourway, the marble sole moves between black, white, and grey, allowing its neon branded highlights to stand out.

The Cat Footwear x both collection launches on Novemeber 2, 2023 Cat footwear official website.
