How to Select Your Next Hunting Boot

Irish Setter Ravine 2880

Selecting the right hunting boot and the right fit will make a big difference in your outdoor experience.  Kim Emery, spokesperson for Irish Setter boots, is sharing some general information to help you start out the hunting season on the right foot.

Hunting boots can be divided into different categories based on terrain and weather conditions. The upper materials, linings and soles are the variables that make these boots work in different environments. To properly select a boot you should think about what you’ll be walking through, the wetness, the temperature, scent control and the terrain underfoot.

The boot upper is the part of the boot that’s above the sole. It supports your ankle and protects your foot against abrasions from sticks, thistles and rocks. The upper materials are usually leather or leather with nylon fabric. Leather provides support and protection and will be sturdier than most fabrics in rocky conditions. Leather quality can vary quite a bit. The top of the line is a full grain waterproof or water-resistant leather. Lower priced boots often incorporate more nylon or use split leathers. Fabric panels can help make the boot more lightweight, flexible and affordable. Fabric panels frequently use popular camouflage patterns to complement your hunting clothes.

Waterproofing is another feature that can be extremely important for hunters. In extreme cases cold, wet feet can lead to a medical emergency. If you’re walking through dewy grass in the morning, you may only need a water-resistant leather without a waterproofing system.

Another major consideration in your footwear selection is insulation. Choose your insulation need by the air temperature, ground temperature and amount of foot movement. If you’re planning to hunt in a warm climate you’ll probably want a non-insulated product.  Insulation is measure in grams. Two hundred grams is about the least amount of insulation you can buy in footwear. Insulation numbers increase from there to 2000 grams. Deer hunters need to balance their need for a non-sweaty walk in and out with the need for a comfortably warm foot while stationery in a deer-stand, not generating any foot heat.

Big game hunters often value scent-control when hunting at close range. Some scent control products block foot odors from escaping. Others approach scent control by killing odor-causing bacteria. This process can be applied to various materials from leathers to linings to footbeds.

Last but not least are the soles. Soles provide varying levels of traction, cushioning, shock absorption, lateral stability and flexibility. Try to balance your need for flexibility, which makes walking easier, with durability which provides longer wear over time.

Tread size is critical when selecting a boot. A shallow tread works best for varying upland terrain to limit mud and debris pick-up. A deeper, more aggressive tread works best for mountainous and hilly terrain. Manufacturers provide a variety of options so you should be able to find the right one for your needs.

Hunting boots play a critical role in the enjoyment and success of your hunting experience. Take the time to find the right hunting boot so you won’t need to think about your boots during your hunt, just the hunt itself.

Inspect Hunting Boots Now

SH02870_WEB jpeg

It’s time to check out existing hunting gear to make sure it’s ready for another season in the woods and fields. Gear is just as important as strategy to ensure a successful outing. “Footwear is a critical piece of gear that can make or break a hunting experience. Hunting boots that don’t perform can make a good day of hunting go bad quickly. And no one wants to be the weak link that cuts the day short for everyone,” said Irish Setter boots public relations manager Kim Emery.

Several problems can result from hunting in boots that are past their prime according to Emery. Holes, cracks and tears can allow water to enter the boot which creates an unpleasant feeling and can hasten hypothermia and trench foot. A separating sole can lead to a trip or fall or complete sole failure. Not something you want to happen when you’re miles from camp. Overly soft leather reduces ankle support which can lead to sprains. Soles may go flat without proper arch support. Poorly fitting footwear can cause annoying calluses, blisters or corns. Walking in poorly fitting shoes or boots can lead to knee and back problems.

“It’s always best to select a high quality boot like Irish Setters. But if they don’t fit properly, even the best boots can give you problems,” advised Emery.

So inspect your boots now to determine if you need to replace them. Footwear experts advise replacing boots if:

  • Holes or cracks in outsole
  • Worn heel or outsole
  • Sole separating from boots
  • Broken lace hooks or lost eyelets
  • Hole in upper fabric or leather
  • Leather that’s damaged or worn thin
  • Soft or crumpled leather or fabric at back of heel
  • Broken midsole or shank
  • Degraded cushioning under the foot
  • Fallen arch support
  • Torn lining
  • Tight fit or sloppy fit
