Lightweight Irish Setter Trail Phantom Safety Boots Are Great Cross-Over Work/Hunt Boots

RED WING, MN (January 2010) —Irish Setter extends its hunting boot line to include the Trail Phantom Safety 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 Irish Setter Trail Phantom Safety boots feature a lightweight aluminum safety toe and UltraDry waterproof construction. The bottom package includes a polyurethane midsole which is more durable and chemical-resistant than EVA and the ShadowTrek Outsole which is designed to be durable, yet lightweight and flexible for enhanced comfort.  These boots meet the ASTMF 2413-05 standard.

The Trail Phantom Safety boots are available in a non-insulated 9” brown version (#4840), a non-insulated 9” black version (#4841) and a 9” Realtree AP Camo version with 400 grams of Thinsulate Ultra insulation (#4842). 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. These lightweight multi-purpose boots demonstrate our extensive knowledge of hunting boots and work boots. They’re great cross-over boots,” explained Irish Setter Product Manager, Kyle Rackiewicz.

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