In 1950, Red Wing® introduced the 854 boot style. Designed for hunting, it was crafted from a distinctive red russet leather that later went on to inspire the Irish Setter™ name. Generation after generation, Irish Setter has proven itself in the field and on the jobsite. Today, over 100 years of Red Wing work boot experiences combined with more than 60 years of Irish Setter outdoor footwear experiences have surged it into becoming the leading brand for hunters and workers alike.
Whether you are a hunter, fisherman or are looking for your next work boot, Irish Setter understands that it’s the little details that make the difference between good footwear and great footwear. The brand prides itself on creating boots that are as hardworking as you are. They do not take shortcuts in craftsmanship; instead, taking delicate thought and consideration into the building of each product. Using full-grain leathers and leading technologies, such as GORE-TEX® waterproofing, Thinsulate™ Ultra insulation, Ultradry™ waterproofing, Cushin Comfort Tongue, and Vibram® in their outsoles, Irish Setter sets out to build the finest outdoor and work footwear.
