Irish Setter HammerHead Work/Hunt Boots Meet Sportsmen’s Needs

RED WING, MN (January 2010) —Irish Setter extends its hunting boot line to include the HammerHead Work/Hunt multi-purpose boots. It’s a natural extension because Irish Setter boots are closely tied to the legendary work performance of Red Wing Shoe Company. In fact, the first “Setters” were work boots named Irish Setter because the leather color was similar to that of the Irish Setter breed.

The non-insulated Irish Setter HammerHead boots feature a lightweight aluminum safety toe, UltraDry waterproof construction and a unique sole platform which increases flexibility and reduces muscle and bone fatigue. The Dynamic Suspension System is a patented mechanism that reduces fatigue caused by underfoot pressure through a shock attenuating mechanism. The system works by redistributing the downward force produced under the heel during each stride. The end result is a more comfortable experience with fresher legs over the course of the day. The Goodyear beaded welt construction and full-grain leather provide a premium look and performance. The Hammerheads feature an oil/slip-resistant TerraMaster Outsole with flattened, self-cleaning airbobs. The heel is built to accommodate work on ladders. These boots meet the ASTMF 2413-05 standard.

The HammerHeads are available in a 7” version (#4830) and a 9” version (#4831). They’re available in men’s sizes 8-14D and EE.

“We’ve seen some research at states that 26% of hunting boots purchased are also used for work. Irish Setter’s HammerHead multi-purpose boots were created using our insider knowledge of both the work boot and hunting boot markets. They incorporate great performance features and provide a good value,” explained Irish Setter Product Manager, Kyle Rackiewicz.

The new HammerHead multi-purpose boots will be available in July 2010 at leading outdoor retailers. Visit for the retailer nearest you.
