Irish Setter boots’ popular VaprTrek hunting boots have been reimagined to enhance long lasting comfort, reduce weight and add sustainable materials

Irish Setter has made durable, reliable and comfortable boots for those who get after it all day, every day for over 70 years. To sustain its storied heritage and do its part to protect and preserve the environment, Irish Setter is committed to incorporating sustainable materials into its products and supporting conservation efforts to protect public lands for generations to come.

Irish Setter VaprTrek hunt boots’ design and materials deliver comfort day after day. A contoured last provides an excellent athletic fit for men and women. The women’s style is built around a precision-made last that address the nuances of a woman’s foot shape for better fit and performance. A stretch collar provides comfort and flexibility in the calf and achilles while stalking or climbing up and down from a treestand. Leather/abrasion-resistant fabric uppers feature a leather flex area in the forefoot allowing the boot to comfortably flex naturally with each step. UltraDry™ waterproofing provides long-lasting protection keeping feet dry while ScentBan™ scent control eliminates odors within the boot. Offered in Mossy Oak® Country® Roots camouflage or Realtree® APXcamouflage with select models featuring Primaloft® insulation for warmth in cool environments.

Internal and external ankle pods surround the ankle increasing lateral stability and adding overall comfort to the ankle and foot. The lightweight and durable Rubber Hex Lite outsole with multi-directional lugs is designed to grab the ground in every direction and provide great traction in the elements. VaprTrek boots include an Armatec™ TPU heel and a rubber sole wrap-up extending up from the outsole to protect from wear in key abrasion areas. 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 high-rebound Sugarcane EVA footbed provides all-day underfoot comfort and is made from sustainable materials.

“Irish Setter is committed to keep evolving our products to make them better for our consumers and the environment,” explained Charley Bryant, Irish Setter Product Merchant.
