New Irish Setter Wingshooter Upland Boots Feature Popular Plain Toe Look

Irish Setter Wingshooter

RED WING, MN (January 2010) — Irish Setter’s latest addition to the successful Wingshooter line feature the look of its classic upland boots, its signature amber leather and white sole but have a smooth, plain toe instead of the moccasin toe stitching.

The non-insulated Irish Setter Wingshooter #842 features UltraDry waterproof construction and the famous Irish Setter Prairie White sole that provides excellent traction while avoiding the weight and bulk of deeper cleats that can get clogged with mud and catch on weeds and brush. Because Irish Setter and its parent company Red Wing Shoe Company are known for offering sizes and widths, the #849 is available in extended sizes from 6-14D and 8-14EE.  In addition to an attractive suggested retail price of just $129, this leather boot measures in at a multi-purpose height of seven inches.  A similar style #843 is available in a 9” height for $149.

“Irish Setter keeps building on its upland legacy and offers great performance in a variety of Wingshooter styles to meet the demands of the marketplace,” explained Irish Setter Product Manager, Kyle Rackiewicz.

The new Wingshooters will be available in July 2010 at leading outdoor retailers. Visit for the retailer nearest you.
