Irish Setter

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great boots, tough soles and very comfortable, especially given the price! I've had my Irish Setters since about 2008, and have put them through hundreds of miles of abuse. From Idaho backcountry 13-mile days, Utah 10 milers and countless miles of East Coast mud, streams, and sticks these boots haven't let me down yet. Mine are mid-calf with a mix of leather and mesh lowers, which does hurt the waterproofing. While they are GoreTex lined, I have admittedly not cared for them properly with regards… Full review

Irish Setter

rated 5 of 5 stars Bought mine in 1978. Still wearing them today. Had to have the Vibram soles reattached in 1990. They are as good as new, very comfortable, still do not leak and I wore them quail hunting last week. Full review

Irish Setter

rated 4 of 5 stars There have been more than one Irish Setter boots sold by Red Wing. The pair I owned were purchased in the 1970s, and were built like high topped US Army military boots, but were made with oil tanned leather, Norwegian welts and Vibram soles.

Irish Setter

rated 5 of 5 stars These boots are outstanding. On my father's advice, he wore them all of his life in geological field work, I purchased a pair for hiking and outdoor recreational use.

Toe gets scuffed a bit and I have to pay special attention to keeping that clean and conditioned. I will definitely buy another… Full review

Irish Setter

rated 5 of 5 stars Well, what can I say? They have gotten me to the top of Mount Rainier and to the bottom of the Grand Canyon. I used them on my through hike of the 2650 Pacific Crest Trail. They are good for at least 2000 miles of trail. I have even done 5.8 pitches in them. No break in required and never a blister. Last forever, comfortable, multi use. Who could ask for anything more?
