Irish Setter boots?

This brand of boot is now showing up here in New Zealand and is quite reasonably priced.

How do you guys rate them? are they a "good" quality boot worth looking at for serious hunting?

Would you rate them as comparable to the German Mendl, Lowe etc?

Cheers

Grant

Re: Irish Setter boots?

Irish Setters are made by Red Wing, or at least they were a couple of years ago. I had a pair of their work boots once, they were comfortable right out of the box however the soles didn't wear particularly well. That was on concrete and expanded metal platforms. Kinda a tough test for any boot, but I've had others that wore better.

Only had the one pair and since then have worn mainly Wolverines at work and for my hunting uses.
