Maybe you have seen the HBO series “The Last of Us” where actor Pedro Pascal plays Joel Miller who escorts a teen girl across a treacherous post pandemic America. (He also played the title character in the Star Wars spinoff “The Mandalorian”) Word has it that while picking the wardrobe for the actor someone decided that the Irish Setter Elk Tracker boots would be the perfect choice for rugged footwear on a trek such as this. The fans evidently took notice of the boots Pascal was wearing and the race was on….. everybody wanted to know about these boots and where to get them. Esquire magazine published an article about said boots and that really fanned the flames…..it’s official, Irish Setter Elk Tracker Boots are a thing, better get them while you can…….
I have worn Elk Trackers for years but they never seemed to get the notoriety from me wearing them as when Mr. Pascal laced up a pair. Go Figure.
Irish Setter® Introduces Extra Durable Series of Elk Tracker XD Hunting Boots
RED WING, MN (January 9, 2023) Next generation Elk Tracker XD boots feature the original Elk Tracker’s legendary comfort in an even more rugged, durable boot that take the award-winning boots to the next level.
A full leather camo upper with leather gusset overlay protects feet and prevents debris from entering the boot. Welted construction enhances durability while a wraparound rubber rand offers abrasion resistance against rocks, sticks and other sharp objects. Irish Setter Field Camo Desert Leather offers superior concealment and coordinates with other popular camo patterns to match a variety of terrain. This proprietary camo Troutbook® leather is made in Red Wing, MN.
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. UltraDry™ waterproof construction offers long-lasting protection. Primaloft® insulation (200 grams) is available in Elk Tracker XD style #3981.
A lace-to-toe fit allows a tighter fit which reduces discomfort created by movement within the boot, especially when descending steep terrain. A locking hook row assists in keeping the boot tight during lacing. A Cushin™ comfort tongue provides comfort in the shin area while ScentBan™ scent control eliminates odors within the boot.
