Irish Setter Redesigns All-Terrain Tamarack Casual Shoe

Irish Setter Tamarack

RED WING, MN (July 2008) — Irish Setter has redesigned its popular Tamarack shoe to give sportsmen a modern athletic look. The Tamarack oxford and chukka offer the guaranteed waterproofing of Gore-Tex.

The Tamarack rugged casual shoes share the same bottom platform as the proven Irish Setter Tamarack hunting boots. The unique construction creates comfort while the UltraArch Internal TPU Torsion Stabilizer enhances stability on uneven ground. TecTuff material protects the toe and heel from scuffing and provides an attractive contrast to the nubuck leather upper.

“The new Tamarack casual shoes are capable of taking the wearer from the street to the trail and beyond. These shoes are built to perform in really rugged conditions,” explained Irish Setter Product Manager Kyle Rackiewicz.

These Tamarack rugged casual styles will be available in January 2009 at leading outdoor retailers. Visit for the retailer nearest you. The oxford (#4803) will retail for $139 while the chukka (#4804) will retail for $149.

Based in Red Wing, MN, Irish Setter is a division of the Red Wing Shoe Company, Inc. that includes a full line of performance hunting boots, fishing shoes and outdoor casuals.
