New Irish Setter WaveCrest WX Excels On, In or Around Water

RED WING, MN (June 2007) — The new Irish Setter WaveCrest WX is a water shoe that is at home on, in or around water so you can be too.  This fully ventilated water shoe offers protection and support during water-based activities.

Sportsmen will appreciate the rugged good looks and performance features of this new lightweight Irish Setter. The WaveCrest WX features drainable construction for quick-drying performance. It also features masculine Irish Setter distressed brown leather combined with nylon mesh to create a closed construction for safer wading and a cord-lock closure for a secure fit. The water-loving bottom package includes a rugged EVA self-draining midsole   with a non-absorbent, anti-odor foot cradle. The Vibram™non-marking gum sole has a non-uniform scoured tread to provide enhanced traction on wet and uneven surfaces.

“We’ve created a rugged water sandal worthy of the Irish Setter name,” says Kyle Rackiewicz, Irish Setter Product Manager. “Our customers will be happy to have a water sandal that’s built just for them.”

Available in January 2008, the new Irish Setter water sandal retails for $79. Look for the Irish Setter water sandal at leading outdoor retailers throughout the United States. Visit for the retailer nearest you.
