After some research i have done this like this :

$definitions = array_filter(
        \Drupal::service('entity_field.manager')->getFieldDefinitions('user', 'user'),
        function ($fieldDefinition) {
          return $fieldDefinition instanceof \Drupal\field\FieldConfigInterface;
    $fields = array();
    foreach ($definitions as $field){

        if( $field->getType() === 'boolean') {
            $fields[$field->getName()] = $field->getLabel();
    return $fields;

I need it for selection list so the field returns and array field_name => field_label
