CAT Footwear at the Brooklyn Navy Yard

Tuesday, October 29, 2013

A couple of weeks ago, I hopped onto a special trolley after stepping out of the subway (yes, they offered a trolley service!) to the Brooklyn Navy Yard Distillery for the CAT Footwear show for their autumn and spring collections.

The festivities introduced Cat's "Earthmovers Campaign" which highlights a selection of inspiring individuals (curated by Cat Footwear) who are doing big things and moving the earth in their everyday lives.  Six Earthmovers were featured in the runway show including Gina Giorgio (aka DJ Gene), Luke Lambert (Crew Chief of the #31 Caterpillar Chevrolet), Alexi Panos & Tennille Amor (Co-Founders of the non-profit: E.P.I.C. which stands for "Everyday People Initiating Change"), Tyler Hilton (Singer/Songwriter & Actor), and Nicole Austin (the Master Blender of Kings County Distillery).

Guests were treated to whiskey shots, popcorn, cheese + crackers, wine, and other yummy snacks while enjoying sounds from DJ Gene. A sneak preview of the boots and shoes were on display and sprinkled throughout the distillery, which provided a rustic and industrial backdrop that was very much in line with the Caterpillar brand. Later, models strutted down the runway in CAT boots. The show featured 31 looks, ranging from Cat's iconic "Colorado" work boot, to key styles from both the men's and women's AW13 and SS14 collections.  Cat partnered with Agave Denim, the exclusive apparel sponsor for the show, who provided an urban-utilitarian uniform of denim-on-denim which served as a fantastic palette for highlighting the shoes.

We were treated with a special appearance by singer Tyler Hilton. He not only modeled during the show, but played a couple of his songs after.
