Irish Setter Limited Moc #9875
STYLE NO. 9875 - IRISH SETTER MOC
The new limited series Irish Setter appears as if out of a time machine. Red Wing dusted off old machines, called in help from retired workers, and experimented with tanning methods recreating the distinctive color giving the boot its hunting dog name back in the early 1950s called “Gold Russet”.
In addition to its vintage hue, other historically accurate cues are used such as the “Red Wing” name embossed on the inside quarter of the boot, the moc toe is finished with a distinctive rectangular bar-tack stitch, and the backstay chain-stitch is done on an ancient Puritan Stitch machine. Red Wing uses the same mahogany and sage thread of the original, the top band is double-stitched, laces are leather instead of Taslan and the style, size and width are heat-embossed on the gusset, just like the old days. All of these features add up to an Irish Setter that is both unique and true to its name. Finally, to finish it off, we’ve added the traditional woven “Irish Setter” label inside the tongue and the boots come in a box that features the original logo and text from the 1950s.
While the limited series Irish Setter boots will no doubt be coveted by collectors who want a piece of history, these are Red Wing boots are built for a lifetime of service.
