First Look: Irish Setter Pinnacle Boots

posted on May 7, 2021
In August of 2021, Irish Setter is introducing its line of Pinnacle boots. Utilizing a patented ATC outsole with Ground-Sensing technology, the sole shapes and contours to rocks and uneven surfaces, promising to enhance underfoot stability. Meanwhile, TempSens technology helps regulate the temperature within the boot to maintain constant foot comfort. In hot conditions, the system reacts so moisture is hyper-wicked away from the foot, facilitating evaporative cooling. This helps keep feet cooler, drier and more comfortable. In colder conditions, the system also pulls moisture from the skin, but traps it to create a thermal barrier that helps maintain a constant, comfortable temperature inside the boot.

The boot mirrors foot shape to promote fit and comfort. Lace-to-toe eyelets and locking ankle hooks help customize a secure fit. The upper provides UltraDry waterproofing for long-lasting protection, and a memory foam collar for instant comfort. The Cushin Comfort Tongue provides comfort in the shin area while impact foam protects from objects striking the ankle. ScentBan scent control is designed to eliminate odors within the boot. A full-leather gusset keeps debris out, while Armatec technology adds durability and abrasion resistance in high-wear areas of the heel and toe. A D-ring at the toe facilitates gator attachment.

EnerG material underfoot provides comfort and sustained support through an energy-returning core sandwiched between midsole and outsole. A resilient EVA/memory foam footbed adds another layer of comfort. The Anti-Torsion TPU Chassis extends from heel to forefoot, providing underfoot support on uneven or rocky ground. A rubber outsole with multi-tiered lugs provides traction on uneven terrain, and self-cleaning lugs promote the shedding of debris.

Irish Setter Field Camo Leather, in Earth and Desert patterns, offers concealment and coordinates with other popular camo patterns to match a variety of terrain types. This proprietary camo-dyed Troutbrook leather is made in Red Wing, Minnesota.
