Known as the first boots specifically crafted for the outdoors, the Red Wing Shoes "outing" line was released in 1920. Finding it to be both popular and successful, the company decided to expand with the Irish Setter brand of footwear. Seeking out only the best materials, Irish Setter upholds the tradition of all-day comfort and superior fit. To maintain this level of quality, it keeps up with the most current construction methods and technologies. Many of the boots include features such as Gore-Tex waterproof breathable membranes, Thinsulate, ScentBan, SnakeGuard or Aerogel. Irish Setter boots never fail to perform, no matter how long that hunt lasts.
