Irish Setter Kittson work boots are designed for work in outdoor environments like construction, warehousing, transportation, and farm and ranch. These work boots get the job done in comfort and style - without unnecessary features, bells and whistles.

Western styling and stitching offer classic accents to the rugged, full grain waterproof leather uppers. Pull-on styles provide a proven comfortable fit and square toe design. UltraDry™ waterproof construction in select styles delivers long-lasting protection.

Asymmetrical steel safety toe caps are designed to offer more toe room and meet ASTM safety standards. A steel shank adds underfoot stability. Welted construction is rugged, long-lasting and allows for resoling if needed in the future. EnerG material underfoot provides comfort and sustained support through an energy-returning core sandwiched between midsole and outsole. EnerG delivers a recharging burst of energy with every step.

A padded memory foam collar on 6" styles adds to the comfort of this work boot. The 11" pull on styles are easy to pull on and take off while also providing an excellent fit. A removable polyurethane footbed allows flexibility to change the footbed to customize the fit and add additional arch supports if necessary.

The Rubber/EVA Treker outsole is combined with an EVA midsole which reduces weight and provides underfoot cushioning. The outsoles provides offers best-in-class slip-resistance with shallow lugs on a flat platform. This dark, but non-marking, outsole offers best-in-class safety ratings in slip resistance, oil/gas, chemicals, abrasions and heat. Soles are heat-resistant to melting at up to 475 degrees Fahrenheit.

Styles with Electrical Hazard protective sole and heel construction are designed to reduce hazards due to contact of the outsole with electrically energized parts and to provide a secondary source of protection.

"Irish Setter Kittson work boots offer no-nonsense protection in outdoor jobs," said Charley Bryant, Irish Setter Product Merchant for Red Wing Shoe Company. "The durable Kittson boots will keep workers comfortable in demanding environments."
