Twelve New Irish Setter Boots Feature Thinsulate


RED WING, MN (January 2008) — Irish Setter is introducing 12 new Fall 08 styles featuring Thinsulate insulation.

Irish Setter has selected Thinsulate insulation for its new big game hunting boots like the Tamarack, Mountain Claw – King Toe, and Alpine Guide. Always a great value, the Tamarack boots feature premium Red Wing Shoe Company leather in a new mottled finish. The Mountain Claw King Toe boot offers ample toe room. The Alpine Guide is built for mountainous terrain and utilizes premium components.

The new Ladyhawk hunting boot line also offers women boots with Thinsulate insulation. Thinsulate is also found in Irish Setter’s Extreme Cold new products like the Snow Claw XT, Snow Claw and Cedar Creek winter casual boots. In the Snow Claw XT, Thinsulate is paired with nanotechnology to create an exceptionally warm boot.

“Thinsulate has great brand recognition. Consumers look for the Thinsulate label when they want insulated boots,” explained Irish Setter Product Manager, Kyle Rackiewicz.

The new Irish Setter boots with Thinsulate will be available in July 2008 at leading outdoor retailers. Visit for the retailer nearest you.
