My personal kind of boots are?
Wait for it…Wait for it… Wait for it… 🙂 Ok, enough of this nonsense! 🙂
Irish Setter in GORE-TEX! There you go!
This company is certainly not new and has been there for quite a while. They have boots from casual wearing to hunting, trekking, rubber and right up to extreme cold.
You name it they probably got it. Ok, you’re starting to sound like a sales rep…You are supposed to be talking about your boots! Getting there 🙂
These boots I want to tell you right away can be on the pricy side of things but with the little experience I have with them I would certainly save up for a pair anytime.
Remember the saying that goes…You get what you pay for! It is true with Irish Setter.
Five years ago I was looking for a good pair of boots that I could use from early spring right up to the fall. I wanted them to be rugged and tough. Something that did not feel like I was dragging cement and also they needed to breathe and be waterproof.
Well, I got exactly what I was looking for and they are still running strong. They may be expensive but they have lasted me 5 years so far and that is not just by a sweet walk in the park. I do not need to get a pair for the summer because they breathe. One pair for 3 seasons! I think the price is right 🙂
Anyway my pair that you see in the picture is not available any longer. I think it was replaced by what they call TREELINE.
What I love about them and I will probably repeat myself, is this: Even though it’s a fair size boot it is LIGHTWEIGHT. They really are WATERPROOF and really let your feet BREATH. They are certainly tough and will grip well to any terrain.
Alright I think I said enough. I know especially for the summer depending on the terrain you are trekking on, a high boot like this is not popular. For sure if it’s just a short walk on a clean trail your typical running shoes will be more adequate and comfortable.
But if it’s more into unbeaten paths or places where it could be rough, I strongly suggest this high type boot that will protect the bottom of your legs against “nasties” that could rip your skin and make your trek uncomfortable.
A little tip if you do not know about it is replacing your boot laces with paracord. A lot stronger and can become very useful if ever you need paracord during your trip to the woods.
I like this pair so much that my next pair will be within that same category.
I decided to talk about them because many people through the years of watching my videos have asked me many times to talk about them and I never did. So I decided to take advantage of my website to give you a few reasons why I wear them. The link below is the closest that I could find.
