Lightweight Irish Setter VaprTrek Hunting Boots are Now Available in All-Season Oxford and Hiker Styles


Irish Setter VaprTrek boots with RPM technology are extremely lightweight and hunt-ready. The existing 8” VaprTrek hunting boots, which are 40-percent lighter than traditional Irish Setter big game hunting boots without sacrificing support or stability, have become a favorite. Now Irish Setter has extended this incredible technology to all-season oxford and hiker heights.

IrishSetterLogo_llBreakthrough design and development allowed Irish Setter to craft RPM composite material that’s comfortable, wears like iron, and significantly reduces the weight of the boot. Strategically designed for uneven terrain and abrasive conditions, the RPM outsole can be found on the VaprTrek family of boots in both Big Game and Outdoor categories of hunting footwear. The RPM sole features a bi-directional lug pattern for increased traction and balance during heel strike and toe off. The wrap-around instep provides protection and aids in gripping tree stand rungs or ATV foot pegs. Armatecheel and toe protection guards against ground hazards. Underfoot comfort is enhanced with an anatomically-correct polyurethane and high-rebound foam footbed with a ScentBan odor inhibiting top cover. And a ScentBan lining delivers scent control through a process that kills odor-causing bacteria.

Irish Setter VaprTrek hunting boots incorporate UltraDry waterproofing so feet stay dry and boots stay breathable. A memory foam collar forms to fit the ankle for comfortable stability in the boot shaft. The Cushin™ Comfort Tongue offers long-lasting comfort in the shin area. A speed lacing system with one-tug tightening provides fast, snug lacing. 

"Irish Setter VaprTrek boots are engineered to be remarkably lightweight and flexible," explained Charley Bryant, Irish Setter Hunt Line Manager for Red Wing Shoe Company. "All you have to do is pick up this boot and you’ll feel the difference."

Men’s VaprTrek Boots are available in sizes 8-12, 13, 14 in D and EE widths. Women’s VaprTrek Boots are available in sizes 5-11 medium width. Prices range from $109.99 to $209.99.
