Good leather boots that are (1) totally waterproof and (2) comfortable are sometimes hard to come by. This is where the Irish Setter hunting boot comes in. The Irish Setter 838 Wingshooter Upland Hunting Boot to be exact. This is a beast of a pair of boots. Goodyear welted construction, real leather upper and a super grippy synthetic sole make for a really great pair of boots. And these suckers are fully waterproof thanks to Irish Setter’s UltraDry technology. They have been at this for years and are probably one of the premier waterproof leather boot companies around.
This 838 Wingshooter model also integrates a steel support shank to make these boots even more durable. Finally, moisture-wicking nylon linings finish off what is likely our favorite hunting boot. The best thing about these particular boots is that they require little to no break-in period. Right out of the box they are pretty comfortable. Irish Setter is actually a brand of Red Wing shoes, which explains why these are some amazingly well-built boots.
