Azealia Banks, One Direction's Louis Tomlinson and the CAT Colorado boot were all born in 1991; Banks named an EP after her birth year, Tomlinson's birthday means he's the daddy of the directions, and in the year they turn 22, the Colorado partnered with Alex Mattsson to put boots on the models feet at his February presentation, (in an all black colourway, as seen above).
At the time of the boot's release Mark Wahlberg was posing in his Calvin Klein's for Herb Ritts, Nirvana were releasing (the later iconic) 'Nevermind', and TLC had released their debut album 'Ooooooohhh... On the TLC Tip'; oh how times change.
'Built to resist', Cat's original of course comes steel-toed, in a suede and leather mix with a hardwearing rubber sole. Retaining plenty of the 90's cool that has dominated streewear trends of late, it's a classic that not only resists wear and tear but dating too. On the feet of pop's latest stars and those whose day was over 20 years ago, it's a fitting style all round.
