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.

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 7” hunting boot featuring 600 grams of Thinsulate Ultra insulation and brown on brown leather/nylon uppers. The Ladyhawk #3887 contains 1000 grams of Thinsulate Ultra insulation in a 7” Mossy Oak Break Up Camo/Brown leather package.

The camo versions include a camo-wrapped EVA midsole. All Ladyhawks shares the streamlined silhouette, design details and proven performance features. The boots are available in women’s sizes Medium 5-11.

“Irish Setter’s Ladyhawk line continues to be a great success. We keep refining the line to give women more options,” explained Mark Dinndorf, Director of Irish Setter Product and Marketing for Red Wing Shoe Company.

According to the US Fish & Wildlife’s 2006 National Survey of Fishing, Hunting and Wildlife-Associated Recreation, 1.2 million women in the United States participate in hunting. Nine percent of the US hunters are women.
