“ On June 2nd, and we made a 3rd alarm fire. We were there for 2 1/2 hours and I have to say these are the best boots I have ever worn on the fire ground. My attention was never drawn to how my feet felt as they were comfortable the entire time. I have always had issues with boots when I have had to wear them on extended fire ground operations. That was not the case this time.”

Bob “Doc” Savage, San Antonio, TX

“ As a Chief Officer, I wanted to convey to you how pleased I am with the Cosmas Boots. Having worn the Cosmas Boots for approximately 2 months and having worn them at two Incidents that were over 3 hours each, now I will let you know that I would never go back to the competitor Leather Boot. These boots are even more comfortable than the tennis shoes.”

Mark D. Nixon, Battalion Chief, Decatur, IL

“ The ankle support is the best part. It felt like there were built-in ankle braces. The arch support was great. These are the best all around boots I’ve ever tried! ”

Michael Farnham, Oceanside, CA

“All our Firefighters love the Cosmas boots. I would recommend them to anyone. All of our troops say that on events lasting two hours and more that their feet do not get sore anymore. We had live fire training that lasted 8 hours last month and all said the boots work great!”

Mike Kennedy, Green River, WY


“ These are bar-none the best boots I have ever used. The pad around the top stops all chafing. I have worn these boots on the drill pad for 6-8 hours a day for a solid week at times with no problems at all. You had to think “Outside the box” to make a boot this firefighter friendly.”

Mike Word, Jackson, MI
