RED WING, MN (December 2010) — Irish Setter continues to refine its Ladyhawk line of women’s hunting boots. The latest addition is a dark brown, lightweight versatile boot (#2886). This Ladyhawk boot features flexible stitch-down construction which makes walking long distances more comfortable. The Mini-Bob sole reduces the weight of the boot and makes it appropriate for both upland and big game applications. UltraDry construction and 1000 grams of Thinsulate Ultra insulation provide additional comfort. Like the rest of the Ladyhawk line, this boot is specifically designed for women and sales benefit The Breast Cancer Research Foundation®.
Irish Setter’s Ladyhawk hunting boot line benefits women in several ways. Irish Setter donates two percent of each Ladyhawk boot purchase to support The Breast Cancer Research Foundation®. The boots not only benefit a worthy cause – they also aim to improve the fit, comfort and performance of the sportswoman with its unique design and fit.
While most women’s hunting boots are nothing more than modified men’s boots, the Irish Setter Ladyhawks have been specifically created for women. Irish Setter developed a last that is shaped and detailed to provide superior fit for women. From a lower volume heel cup, to adjusted arch support to a more accommodating collar, the detail in these boots is geared toward higher performance and comfort for women.
The Irish Setter Ladyhawk series includes the Ladyhawk #3886 7” hunting boot featuring 600 grams of Thinsulate Ultra insulation and brown on brown leather/nylon uppers. The Ladyhawk #3887 contains 1000 grams of Thinsulate Ultra insulation in a 7” Mossy Oak Break Up Camo/Brown leather package. The Ladyhawk #2887 is a 15” knee boot featuring Realtree All-Purpose camo, 1000 grams of Thinsulate Ultra insulation, ScentBan, easy on/off side zipper and Ultra Dry waterproof construction.
The camo versions include a camo-wrapped EVA midsole. All Ladyhawks shares the streamlined silhouette, design details and proven performance features. The boots are available in women’s sizes Medium 5-11.
“Irish Setter’s Ladyhawk line continues to be a great success. We keep refining the line to give women more options,” explained Mark Dinndorf, Director of Irish Setter Product and Marketing for Red Wing Shoe Company.
According to the US Fish & Wildlife’s 2006 National Survey of Fishing, Hunting and Wildlife-Associated Recreation, 1.2 million women in the United States participate in hunting. Nine percent of the US hunters are women.
The new Ladyhawk boot #2886 will be available in July 2011 at leading outdoor retailers and will retail for $149. Existing Ladyhawk styles #3886, #3887 and #2887 are available now starting at $129. Visit www.irishsetterboots.com for the retailer nearest you.
