The three day event runs October 24th-26th at The Direct Energy Centre…

Hi guys! Let me tell you about my new shoes and how you can win a pair! I recently got to check out the latest from Cat Footwear and was once again impressed with the stylish and dainty yet rugged styles. You’ll recognize the logo from construction equipment and big machines but little did you know they also make really nice shoes.  You might remember a while back when I got my first pair Cat of boots, Stella.
