Irish Setter Boots Adds Extended Sizes and Widths


RED WING, MN (January 2008) — Irish Setter is known for fit, comfort and performance. Fit and comfort are often components of having the right shoe size and width. Irish Setter, a division of Red Wing Shoe Company, has a reputation for having extended sizes and widths so more people can experience the comfort associated with a good fitting boot.

Most Irish Setter styles are available in D and EE (wide and double wide) from a men’s size 8 up to size 14 and offer half sizes. Several Irish Setter products are offered in extended sizes.

The Shadow Trek big game hunting boots #3868 and #3859 go down to a 5D. The Timber Flex big game hunting boots #3883 and #3884 also go down to a 5D.

In the Irish Setter Wingshooter upland collection, style #849 and #838 go down to a 6D. And style #847 starts at 7D. And almost anyone can find a Wingshooter #844 to fit them with sizes including B 8-14, D 7-14, EE 7-14 and H 8-14.

The Irish Setter Elk Tracker #882 also runs small and large with sizes B 8-14, D 8-16, EE 8-16 and H 7-13.

Even women have boot sizes particularly for them in the Ladyhawk collection (#3885, #3886, #3887). These Irish Setter boots are offered in women’s size medium 5-11. Another option is to buy a men’s boot. To convert your women’s shoe size to a men’s size, take your women’s shoe size and subtract 1.5.

 “Fit is an integral part of our brand,” explained Irish Setter Product Manager, Kyle Rackiewicz. “Irish Setter is proud of our extended size offering. We’re a part of Red Wing Shoe Company and that’s been a part of our heritage from the beginning.”
