Cat Footwear hosted a party at its New York City showroom in Carnegie Hall Tower on Thursday, November 2 to showcase its current fall 2017 line of footwear, plus give visitors a first look at the company’s spring/summer 2018 collection.

The fall 2017 line puts an emphasis on bold boots made to withstand whatever the city may throw at you, be it rain, sleet or snow with various waterproof and weatherproof styles for men and women, including Vibram Arctic Grip outsoles that make ice obsolete. For spring 2018, Cat Footwear will introduce a range of boots powered by FlexFWD: the brand’s latest technology that delivers ultimate flexibility, durability and 24/7 comfort.

At the event, guests enjoyed a mix of bold sips and bites including Sigmunds Pretzels, deep fried cheese by Big Mozz, torched ice cream by Bona Bona, Underwood Wines and Michigan’s own Founders Brewing Co. There were sounds from DJ Jasper Stapleton; Brooklyn’s Smith Street Tattoo Parlour was on-site tattooing designs directly to partygoers’ new boots; and a heated beer pong tournament was held, with the winning team taking home a $1,000 prize!
