Irish Setter Incorporates Vibram Outsoles In Select Boots

RED WING, MN (January 2008) — Irish Setter has incorporated Vibram outsoles in several premium boots.

The new Irish Setter Alpine Guide #2899 features an exclusive Vibram Summit outsole is built to last, with a dual-density PU midsole on top of a thick, solid rubber cleat platform. The tread is designed to carry heavy loads over rough terrain – providing maximum traction on rocky, uneven surfaces.

The award-winning Irish Setter AeroTracker is built with durable nylon screen protection over airmesh panels and is designed for active hunting in conditions that require a great amount of walking and hiking while still providing dependable waterproof protection. The Aero Tracker #3855 also features the exclusive Vibram® Contact outsole, a TPU plate for stability and a lightweight EVA midsole for proven comfort. The Vibram Contact carbon rubber sole has an aggressive lug pattern perfect for both rough and moderate terrain. The non-insulated style also features a GORE-TEX™ waterproof membrane.

“Vibram soles are known for their durability, just like Irish Setter,” explained Irish Setter Product Manager, Kyle Rackiewicz.
