Irish Setter Ashby work boots are a favorite because of its versatility, comfort and durability. The comfortable sole is durable and heat-resistant for long-lasting performance in many environments. The full grain leather upper is rugged and offers a premium look.

The Traction Tred Rubber-EVA Outsole offers best-in-class slip-resistance with shallow lugs on a flat platform. This non-marketing outsole offers crucial, 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. 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.

Durable, lightweight aluminum safety toe caps (AT) are 31% lighter than steel and meet ASTM safety standards (ASTM F2413-18) for impact and compression. Irish Setter Ashby work boots are rated ASTM F2413-18 or F2892-18, M/I/C and Electrical Hazard (EH). Visit for rating/standards information.

A padded memory foam collar on 6" styles adds to the comfort of this work boot. The 9" 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.

Goodyear welt construction offers durability and the opportunity to resole the boots if desired.

"Irish Setter Ashby work boots are a great all-around work boot," said Charley Bryant, Irish Setter Product Merchant for Red Wing Shoe Company. "Ashby boots are rugged enough to provide all-day protection on the job and even in high temperature environments found in roofing and paving jobs."
