  • Full grain, water, flame, chemical and cut resistant leather upper protects your foot.
  • Anti-microbial removable footbed with molded EVA heelcup and arch conforms to your foot providing comfort and support.
  • Fire-resistant Kevlar® thread throughout the upper ensures durability under fire.
  • Molded heel counter cups heel and provides support.
  • Dual-Zone Contact™ Lacing System: Anatomically asymmetrical, with free floating lace points that allow the upper to conform precisely to the shape of each individual’s feet.

“ I bought a pair of these boots this summer and love them. They are by far the best wildland boots I have ever owned. I would recommend them to anyone.”

Jason DallaGrana, South Dakota

“ We compared the Cosmas sole to the other “leading” sole by standing on 1000 to 1200 degree ash pits for 15 seconds. The “leading” brand had serious deterioration and crystallization at this temperature. Cosmas showed little to no damage from the heat test. I was able to stand in these temperatures while testing the Cosmas sole. In this simple evaluation, Comas’ sole far exceeded the “leading” brand hands down.”

Jason Ramos, Wenatchee, WA

“These boots are extremely comfortable. They broke in quickly and are very rugged. The traction on the sole is far superior to any boot sole I’ve ever used! The reduced heel height and “ergonomic heel roll” eliminated the usual post-fire knee pain. After working a day of mop-up and cold trailing my feet did not hurt or feel the fatigue that seemed to always follow a fire assignment. Awesome boots!”

Stu Nay, Clear Creek County, CO


“Overall performance of the boots is great!”
