Irish Setter Gives Over $10,000 To The Breast Cancer Research Foundation

Irish Setter Ladyhawk #3887

Donation Based On Sales of Irish Setter Ladyhawk Women’s Hunting Boots

RED WING, MN (October 2009) — Irish Setter is donating over $10,000 to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation® in 2009. The donation is part of a year-round program developed by Irish Setter in 2008. Irish Setter donates a percent of each Ladyhawk women’s hunting boot purchase to TBCRF. The boots not only benefit a worthy cause – they also aim to improve the fit, comfort and performance of the sportswoman with its unique design and fit.

While most women’s hunting boots are nothing more than modified men’s boots, the Irish Setter Ladyhawks have been specifically created for women. Irish Setter developed a last that is shaped and detailed to provide superior fit for women. From a lower volume heel cup, to adjusted arch support to a more accommodating collar, the detail in these boots is geared toward higher performance and comfort for women.

The Irish Setter Ladyhawk series includes the Ladyhawk #3886 which features 600 grams of Thinsulate Ultra insulation and brown on brown leather/nylon uppers. For hunters who need more insulation, the Ladyhawk #3887 contains 1000 grams of Thinsulate Ultra insulation in a Mossy Oak Break Up Camo/Brown leather package. The camo versions include a camo-wrapped EVA midsole. Irish Setter has also created a women’s specific snake boot for hunting in snake territory The Ladyhawk Viper #4886 is a 15” knee boot featuring Realtree All-Purpose camo, 200 grams of Thinsulate Insulation, SnakeGuard, ScentBan, easy on/off side zipper and Ultra Dry waterproof construction.

All Ladyhawks shares the streamlined silhouette, design details and proven performance features. The boots are available in women’s sizes Medium 5-11 and start at $109.

“We’re pleased with the response to our women’s hunting boot line and this initiative with The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, ” explained Irish Setter Brand Manager, Mark Dinndorf.
