Historic footwear manufacturer since 1938, Cofra was first founded in Barletta (Italy) under the name Cortelgomma. Immediately after the war, this artisanal workshop started manufacturing shoes using the tyres of military trucks for the soles and military uniforms for the uppers. Soon after, the founder’s passion and enterprise transformed the workshop into a modern company, capable of producing hundreds of pairs per day, distributed all over Italy.

Changing its name to Cofra in 1983, the company now managed by Giuseppe Cortellino, the founder’s son, today is a leading reality in the safety footwear market for professional use, as well as a well-known brand in Europe and all over the world.

Since 2004, a process of diversification has been set into motion, resulting first in the introduction of apparel and then work gloves, airway protectors, eye protectors, and fall arrest systems.

Cofra was also the first Italian footwear manufacturer in Italy to obtain UNI EN ISO 9001:2015 Certification for its Quality Management System.

New Products

cofra_monti-17MONTI S3 SRC

The new model of the MONTI Running line, certified S3 SRC, is extremely comfortable with a seamless upper in TECHSHELL, an innovative, very tough, water repellent and breathable fabric. It is made of yarns that are extremely resistant to abrasion and woven directly into the fabric in order to guarantee a high level of toughness and maximum resistance to friction. The waterproof fabric ensures the same performance as leather footwear and is suitable for use both indoors and outdoors. At the same time, it is lightweight and comfortable as only a shoe with a fabric upper can be. The athletic sole is lightweight, slim, and comfortable with impact shock-absorption that protects the individual’s limbs and vertebral column against unpleasant shocks while walking. The design of the tread supports the flexing of the foot, while ensuring an excellent anti-slip grip, thanks to its design and the positioning of the lug soles into small closely clustered islands. Thus, adherence is guaranteed both lengthwise and crosswise. The TPU tread is especially resistant to abrasion. The toe-cap is made of aluminium, and there is a non-metallic APT PLATE midplate.  The soft polyurethane footbed is anatomic, and extremely lightweight and comfortable, ensuring excellent impact shock-absorption.

FLUENT S1P SRC

Sporty, lightweight, and comfortable. The upper proposed is brand new and made out of seamless and highly breathable fabric, which is resistant to abrasion and tearing. The sole is athletic, lightweight, and slim, as well as comfortable with impact shock-absorption that protects the individual’s limbs and vertebral column against unpleasant shocks while walking. The design of the tread supports the flexing of the foot, while ensuring an excellent anti-slip grip, thanks to its design and the positioning of the lug soles into small closely clustered islands. Thus, adherence is guaranteed both lengthwise and crosswise. The TPU tread is especially resistant to abrasion and fitted with TPU protection on the toes, which safeguards the footwear from accidental impacts. The toe-cap is made of aluminium, and there is a non-metallic APT PLATE midplate.  The soft polyurethane footbed is anatomic, lightweight, and comfortable, ensuring the highest level of impact energy absorption.

GOYA BROWN S3 SR

The polyurethane sole with TPU tread, with a sporty design, offers a high degree of slip-resistance, thanks to the configuration and layout of small lug soles located along the entire perimeter of the shoe, which ensure excellent draining properties.  The TPU used in the tread is especially resistant to abrasions. Instead, the polyurethane midsole offers an elevated level of comfort and excellent energy absorption in the heel area, while supporting the arch of the foot, thanks to the reinforcement used in the central part of the shoe. The nubuck upper is waterproof, while the shoe also features a composite toe-cap and non-metallic APT PLATE midplate. It is fitted with TPU protection on the toes that safeguards the footwear from accidental impacts.

The footbed, made of a special EVA and nitrile rubber compound, provides extra lift with varying thickness.  Thermoformed, punched, and coated with highly breathable fabric, it is also antistatic thanks to a special surface treatment and seams made out of conductive yarns.

MAJORANA BLACK S1P SRC

With an innovative and uncut seamless upper, this line of shoes is breathable and resistant to abrasion and tearing.  It is fitted with TPU protection on the toes, thus safeguarding the footwear against accidental impacts.  The TPU/polyurethane sole is extremely lightweight, low-cut and linear, and characterized by a high degree of flexibility.  The design of the TPU tread has been developed to ensure the best possible grip for the most diversified kinds of use, thus guaranteeing maximum anti-slip characteristics.  The layout and design of the lug soles allow for an automatic cleansing of the soles, while also permitting residuals to be drained away.  The composite toe-cap and the non-metallic APT PLATE midplate make this footwear extremely lightweight and therefore more comfortable.
