RED WING, MN (January 2009) — Irish Setter has created a women’s specific snake boot for hunting in snake territory The Ladyhawk Viper #4886 is a 15” knee boot featuring Realtree All-Purpose camo, 200 grams of Thinsulate Insulation, SnakeGuard, ScentBan, easy on/off side zipper and Ultra Dry waterproof construction.

 Irish Setter’s Ladyhawk hunting boot line benefits women in several ways. Irish Setter donates two percent of each Ladyhawk boot purchase to support The Breast Cancer Research Foundation®. The boots not only benefit a worthy cause – they also aim to improve the fit, comfort and performance of the sportswoman with its unique design and fit.

While most women’s hunting boots are nothing more than modified men’s boots, the Irish Setter Ladyhawks have been specifically created for women. 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 #4885 a 6” non-insulated, all brown boot and two 7” boots with ScentBan and UltraDry waterproof construction. The Ladyhawk #3886 features 600 grams of Thinsulate Ultra insulation and brown on brown leather/nylon uppers. For hunters who need more insulation, the Ladyhawk #3887 contains 1000 grams of Thinsulate Ultra insulation in a 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 was pleased with the response to our Fall 08 Ladyhawk line. This new addition gives women even more choices in their hunting footwear,” explained Irish Setter Product Manager, Kyle Rackiewicz.

The new Ladyhawk boots will be available in July 2009 at leading outdoor retailers. The Ladyhawk Viper #4886 will retail for $159. Visit for the retailer nearest you.
