The Irish Setter hunting brand was established over 60 years ago when the Red Wing Shoe Company introduced a work boot that was also configured for superior performance in upland fields and forests. This new boot was called Irish Setter. It quickly became the boot of choice for hunters seeking sport footwear with an uncompromising sense of quality, durability, and tradition.

Over the following decades, Red Wing Shoe consistently added boots to the Irish Setter line that incorporated new features and benefits ­ combining innovative design with the legendary performance that made its work boots an American icon. Today, Irish Setter boots continue to deliver on this heritage of excellence by pursuing new technology through invention, partnership, and development.
