The company was established in 1938 by Ruggiero Cortellino as Cortelgomma.
After the II World War this small workshop produced shoes using the tyres of military trucks for the soles and military uniforms for the uppers. The founder’s passion and enterprise let the small workshop turn into a company in few years, producing hundreds of pairs per day, distributed all over Italy.
In 1983 the company became Cofra which is now managed by Giuseppe Cortellino, Ruggiero’s son. Cofra keeps on growing thanks to a wise and innovative management, which has led it to become a leader in the footwear market.
CofraMove collection, including trekking, outdoor and leisure footwear, conceived for reliability, comfort and care for details, the main features of all Cofra products, is the result of our expertise and masterly tradition.
