Cofra Frosti Review
The Cofra Frosti took out office by storm earlier this year, a GORE-TEX boot that looks good for under ?ú78.00. Can't ask for more can you?
Well yes, a couple of people requested a GORE-TEX boot which had a composite rather than steel toe cap, lo and behold - the Frosti shoots and scores! Add to that a composite midsole and you've really got a winner on your hands.
So, what are they like on? Well, I was the lucky member of the team to get to try these out so try them out I did. First off some light work around the house (well the removal of a partition wall from upstairs). The boots did well here, comfortable and light weight, easy on and off too.
Tomorrow for a harder test - a 7.5 mile walk in basically new boots - what no brealking in???
7am Sunday Morning: Good for you as it it's absolutely throwing it down, bad for me but on with the waterproofs as the deal is if you get the boots you *have* to put them through their paces (company policy!!). So on with the waterproofs and out with the dogs.
7.30am The foot of Rivington Pike, wind blowing and rain coming in sideways - dog's don't seem to mind though so off we go.
12.25am Back home, me dry the dogs wet but all happy.
Overview - Have to say that I've tried a lot of boots in similar circumstances and I found these to cope admirably. My feet stayed dry and warm the whole time and I put them through quite a bit. What I found really good was the strong sole/tread. A good part of the walk is across cobbles / rubble paths and the strong sole made this pretty effortless. Some of the boots I've tried have had a much softer sole and while this gives you good control in some situations, for walking on tough uneven ground a less flexible sole is prefered. The scuff cap on the front of the boot is a nice addition too, as are the sturdy eyelets for the laces.
