SH02895_WEBRED WING, MN (June 2015) — Irish Setter® VaprTrek boots with RPM technology are extremely lightweight and hunt-ready. The existing 8” VaprTrek hunting boots, which are 40% lighter than traditional Irish Setter big game hunting boots without sacrificing support or stability, have become a favorite. Irish Setter has extended this incredible technology to all-season hiker heights.

Breakthrough design and development allowed Irish Setter to craft RPM composite material that’s comfortable, wears like iron, and significantly reduces the weight of the boot. Strategically designed for uneven terrain and abrasive conditions, the RPM outsole can be found on the VaprTrek™ family of boots in both Big Game and Outdoor categories of hunting footwear. The RPM sole features a bi-directional lug pattern for increased traction and balance during heel strike and toe off. The wrap-around instep provides protection and aids in gripping tree stand rungs or ATV foot pegs. Armatec™ heel and toe protection guards against ground hazards. Underfoot comfort is enhanced with an anatomically-correct polyurethane and high-rebound foam footbed with a ScentBan™ odor inhibiting top cover. And a ScentBan lining delivers scent control through a process that kills odor-causing bacteria.

Irish Setter VaprTrek hunting boots incorporate UltraDry™ waterproofing so feet stay dry and boots stay breathable. A memory foam collar forms to fit the ankle for comfortable stability in the boot shaft. The Cushin™ Comfort Tongue offers long-lasting comfort in the shin area. A speed lacing system with one-tug tightening provides fast, snug lacing.

MORE OPTIONS FOR HUNTERS

RED WING, MN (June 2014) — Extremely lightweight and highly breathable, Irish Setter Shed Tracker boots have become hunters’ all-season favorites. These boots are multi-purpose performers – ideal footwear for setting up trail cams, planting food plots, running the dogs or hanging tree stands.

Irish Setter incorporates military-inspired digital camouflage on the new #2843 oxford and #2847 waterproof hiker styles. These models feature highly abrasion-resistant 600 denier ripstop nylon and suede leather.

Hiker styles #2847 and #2845 include UltraDry™ waterproof construction.

All Irish Setter Shed Trackers feature toothy Quest rubber outsoles for superior traction on rocky and uneven terrain, durable Armatec™ toe and heel protection, weight-reducing EVA midsoles and cushioned removable EVA footbeds.

“Hunters spend considerable time outdoors preparing for the hunting season. These lightweight boots are designed with those activities in mind,” said Charley Bryant, Irish Setter Product Manager for Red Wing Shoe Company. “The digital pattern in muted colors appeals as an alternative to ‘stick and limb’ camo.”

Many of these lightweight all-season boots are available now, with new styles (indicated by **) becoming available in January 2015 at leading sporting goods retailers. Visit www.irishsetterboots.com for the retailer nearest you.
