Inspect Hunting Boots Now

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

SB_3CL_ANY_PRl


SH02870_WEB jpeg

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.
