Irish Setter has developed lighter versions of its award-winning Elk Tracker boots to provide another option for hardcore hunters. To reduce weight, new Elk Tracker boot uppers feature abrasion-resistant nylon along with full grain waterproof leathers.

All Irish Setter Elk Trackers combine a variety of features which contribute to their comfort and durability. Genuine leather welt construction provides some flexibility with enough rigidity and torsion control for stability on uneven terrain. And the cushioning of the removable Comfort Cork EVA Footbed with Memory Foam and ScentBan™ Odor Inhibitor comes standard on all models. Locking lace hooks help tighten boots for a secure fit. Primaloft® Insulation provides warmth in cold environments. The aggressive Bulls-Eye®Air Bob aggressive sole offers superb stability and traction on the toughest terrain. The dual-density sole provides maximum underfoot cushion. Leather/fabric versions feature UltraDry™ waterproofing to keep feet dry. All leather upper versions feature a GORE-TEX membrane which blocks moisture from the outside, while allowing moisture inside to evaporate.

"Big game hunters have a lighter weight option with our new Irish Setter Elk Tracker boots," said Charley Bryant, Irish Setter Product Line Merchant for Red Wing Shoe Company. "These boots were built to live up to the Elk Tracker standard."
