Irish Setter Gunflint Hunting Boots Deliver Performance At A Great Price

RED WING, MN (January 2010) — The Irish Setter Gunflint hunting boots were specifically designed to appeal to big game hunters and their wallets.

The Gunflint series are built with Thinsulate insulation and a Goodyear welt with UltraDry waterproof construction. The rugged Bulls-Eye air bob carbon rubber sole features an aggressive design that provides more contact points with the ground for greater stability and traction on uneven terrain. Cork-lined EVA midsoles provide all-day comfort and cushion against shock. Sturdy steel shanks deliver additional support. Camo nylon uppers with polyurethane-armored leather enhance durability and weather resistance.

Style #816 is available in Realtree AP Camo and 200 grams of Thinsulate insulation. Style #824 offers 800 grams of Thinsulate Ultra insulation in a brown fabric/leather upper. Style #818 is available in Mossy Oak Break Up Camo with 1000 grams of Thinsulate Ultra Insulation. The Gunflint starts at $99.

“We anticipated the need for value-priced hunting boots that also deliver on performance. We worked diligently to create this great offering for our customers,” said Kyle Rackiewicz, Irish Setter Product Manager.

The new Gunflint boots (#824) will be available in July 2010 at leading outdoor retailers. Other Gunflint styles (#816 and #818) are available now. Visit for the retailer nearest you.
