In 1950, Red Wing introduced style 854, crafted with Red Russet leather which inspired the Irish Setter name. Irish Setter became the brand for generations by proving itself in the field and on the job site. Today, more than 110 years of Red Wing work boot experience, combined with the over 60-year legacy of Irish Setter outdoor footwear, results in purpose-built Irish Setter footwear for work and hunt.
