Irish Setters on sale @ Cabela's

Grousehunter

A friend had a pair and liked them for comfort and weight for early season hunting but said durability is a big issue

I haven't used that exact boot, but have their similar boot in 400gr. Grouse hunter is correct, all those seams tend to give way eventually. Granted mine probably lasted 5-6 years but I didn't use them that often. I like a boot that's leather and with few seams. 

 

As as a side note Irish Setters have been on sale for me for 33 years, but just went off sale. We get an annual safety shoe allowance at work, it's $150 now.  For years the local Red Wing store would sell you any boot, including Irish Setter hunting boots, and turn them in as safety shoes. But alas, this year they said they had a new computerized inventory system that would not allow that. So I let my son use my allowance. I mostly work in the office and one set of safety shoes will last me many years as I only wear them the occasional days I work on the production floor.

The Heritage series are still made in the US and wear well but are pricey although total cost of ownership over their useful life will be less than those that only last one or two seasons.

I, currently, have the exact boot. This is the second year with them, with average use in pheasant country, as well as desert quail country. Certainly the most comfortable and lightweight boots I have worn, but as noted above, the durability is lacking. Both area around the outer toes are almost worn through. Not sure if I'd buy another pair. Most likely will try and pay more for Lowas when these wear through.

What is that flappy looking thing behind the toe box?

One problem I have with an 8" boot height is the need to wear gaitors over them to keep the seeds, grass, etc. out of my socks.  A higher boot - no problem!  Maybe it's just me...?  

 

Are they made in the USA?
