Red Wing Heritage Irish Setter Boot Collection Goes Black Klondike for Fall

Red Wing Shoes lit our fire with the resurrection of its historic #954 Red Wing Heritage Irish Setter hunting boot in a limited release launched late this summer.

The OG Irish Setter hunting boot was released in the 1950s, giving 9-inches of laced-up protection for sportsmen who might spend hours or days engulfed in woods and swampy marshes. Today, you can take these re-visualized Irish Setters into the bog… or keep them clean on the street for a rugged style twist to your winter wardrobe. (Our style suggestion: Roll up your jean legs to hit the top of the Mocs and pair with one of these flannels and puffy vests.)

The first renditions of#954’s limited edition release were available in two styles — the lace-up Moc boot and the pull-on Pecos boot — both featuring Red Wing’s unique Gold Russet Sequoia leather.

The company brought their tradition of making use of leather tanned with the bark of sequoia trees to the 21st Century, recreating its colorway at S.B. Foot Tanning Co. to form these, deep reddish-orange silhouettes that gave the boot its hunting dog name in the first place.

Now Red Wing is back with a one-two punch releasing a winter-ready version in the Upper Tier Irish Setter collection called The Black Klondike Irish Setter Moc.

This exclusive, heavy-weight leather Moc was developed as a reproduction of Red Wing’s popular Black Chrome leather boot from the 1980s, and is distinctive for its brown base that shows through the black stain finish the more the boots are worn. (Oh, and you’ll be wearing these bad boys all winter… and maybe into the spring.)

With mahogany and sage thread, the Black Klondike straps up with leather laces and all-around Goodyear welt construction, joining the family beside this summer’s release of the Gold Russet Sequoia Moc Toe and Pecos. See all the kicks in this collection below.

Red Wing also introduced their pull-on Pecos style in the 1950s, which has become one of their more popular creations. They call it “a cowboy boot, with a Minnesota twist.”

Both of these styles are made with the same mahogany and sage threading of the original, and the whole gang is labeled with the traditional Irish Setter tag woven inside of the boot.

Receive your little piece of Red Wing history in a neatly packaged box that boasts the original Red Wing logo. The limited edition Irish Setter collection can be found at select Red Wing Heritage retailers across the U.S, or online at Todd Snyder New York.
