Irish Setter Ladyhawks Are Serious Hunting Boots for Women


RED WING, MN (January 2008) — Irish Setter is introducing a women’s hunting boot line, the Ladyhawks. While most women’s hunting boots are nothing more than modified men’s boots, these 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 consists of three 7” boots with ScentBan and UltraDry waterproof membranes. The Ladyhawk #3885 is non-insulated and features Realtree All-Purpose HD nylon with brown leather. 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. The boots are available in women’s sizes Medium 5-11.

Women will appreciate the streamlined silhouette, design details and proven performance features of the Irish Setter Ladyhawk line. “We wanted to create a women’s boot line that lives up to Irish Setter’s reputation of fit and performance.  These boots live up to that reputation and, while they meet our high standards for field performance, they also have styling to highlight their feminine nature,” explained Irish Setter Product Manager, Kyle Rackiewicz.

The new Ladyhawk boots will be available in July 2008 at leading outdoor retailers. Visit for the retailer nearest you.
