Red Wing Shoe Company Leather Selected For Premium Irish Setter Boots


RED WING, MN (January 2008) — In 2008, Irish Setter has looked to its heritage and added premium Red Wing Shoe Company leather to several styles in the line.

This top-of-the-line leather is made with US hides at the company’s tannery located near the corporate headquarters in Red Wing, Minnesota. For more than a century, the master tanners at the tannery have been perfecting their craft and producing some of the best leathers in the world.

The handcrafted leather is offered in the Irish Setter Tamarack big game hunting boots, the high elevation Alpine Guide hunting boot and the innovative Mountain Claw – Viper snake boot.

 “Irish Setter is a Red Wing Shoe Company brand. We’ve decided to capitalize on our knowledge and resources by adding this premium leather to a special offering of boots,” explained Irish Setter Product Manager, Kyle Rackiewicz.

The new Irish Setter boots featuring Red Wing Shoe Company leather will be available in July 2008 at leading outdoor retailers. Visit for the retailer nearest you.
