The Irish Setter 6 in. Hiker offers direct attach construction which fuses the sole to the fibers of the upper to produce a tough, watertight bond. This makes for a light weight boot and adds flexibility without compromising durability. The dual-density PU V-grip sole gives instant comfort as soon as the boots are placed on your feet. Its steel toe offers protection from compression and falling objects. This hiker is also oil, chemical, abrasion, heat, and slip resistant.
