VERDICT

The Cofra Thermic boots are very well made for all kinds of industries and probably won't let you down. I own these boots and use them for around the house in all seasons. I've blown the snow out of the driveway many times in the winter with just these boots and bare feet. Never had a problem from the cold while wearing these boots. However I do find them to be rigid and I won't take these on a construction site because I know they would cause a foot issue after wearing them for long periods of time due to the ridged construction. The suggested usage is forestry and agriculture.

COFRA

The Cofra Thermic Boots are a high-grade work boot comparable to the Dunlop, however they do have many differences. Some owners of this boot like them better then the Dunlop’s. The Cofra Thermic Boot is light weight and is 100% metal free which adds to keeping your feet warmer in the winter weather. I personally own these boots and really like them for plowing the snow at my house in the winter, however I found them to be rigid for all day use on the construction site and they caused blisters from rubbing and hurt my ankles. It all depends on what you’re using them for. These boots are a high grade work boot and a lot of people swear by them for construction so it really depends on the type of construction you’re doing. They hold up to a lot of different solvents and would take a long time to break down compared to other brands on the market.
