Red Wing Shoes introduced the first pair of Irish Setter boots in 1950 using Red Russet leather as red as an Irish Setter’s coat. The Irish Setter brand includes footwear ideal for hiking, hunting, camping and casual wear. Red Wing Shoes has produced trusted work attire for over 100 years. Knowing its customers play as hard as they work, Red Wing launched Irish Setter to provide powerful recreational footwear as well. These boots feature many technological advancements. Some styles incorporate materials that wick away moisture, insulate heat, repel water and prevent snake bites. In a stand, on a lake or at a campsite, Irish Setters deliver comfortable, durable footwear for your favorite outdoors recreation.
