STYLE NO. 8086 : Iron Ranger

The rugged 6-inch 8086 Iron Ranger features premium Charcoal Rough & Tough leather, dark gun metal eyelets and speed hooks, Goodyear welt construction, triple stitched quality, plus a durable Vibram® 430 Mini-lug sole for grip while maintaining the classic Iron Ranger construction and silhouette

THE HISTORY BEHIND THE STYLE

The early history of iron mining on Minnesota’s Mesabi Range is intertwined with that of Red Wing Shoe Company. The miners needed tough but comfortable boots that could stand up to the long days and tough conditions a northern Minnesota mine pit presented. Red Wing responded with a boot made of thick leather with an oil resisting outer sole, speed lacing hooks, and a comfortable cork midsole. The defining characteristic of these boots though, was their double layered toe, capped to protect the miner’s feet from injury as they labored with hand tools and heavy machinery. That boot is still made today, the fittingly named Iron Ranger, and it represents not only Red Wing’s commitment to making boots for working men and women but also its Minnesota origins.

Oil Tanned leather is a very durable and vivid leather. Oil Tanned leather is a very durable and vivid leather.

Oil-Tanned Leather

S.B. Foot Tanning Co. is best known for oil-tanned leather which is used to build a variety of timeless Red Wing styles. This leather is water, stain and perspiration resistant, and has a more natural look and feel because less finishing materials have been applied, allowing its natural beauty to shine through. Oil-tanned leather is exceptionally durable and has been used to build countless work boots throughout Red Wing’s 108+ year history.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pull The Trigger! Did the math - tired of blowing out boots every 1-2 years - pulled the trigger on the IR and with only 7 days in with my purchase, getting better every day - couldn't be happier. Don't have a dealer even close to me, but followed the reviews and went a ½ size down - perfect. Charcoal color was darker than expected - which I wanted - almost a matte black and should look even better with wear. Mini-Lug sole has a great lower profile, not the best on snow/ice, but knew that going in. On my feet about 10 hours a day - from the ski tune room to the ski rental department, looks nice enough for the retail floor and beyond. Thanks Redwing! - Hope our next contact is only to get new soles.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great looks, weird fit. I've had my charcoal rangers for about two months.i wear a 12 in most sneakers. I measured a 12 on my right and and 12.5 on my left foot at the redwing store so I bought a size 12. They fit comfortably snug when I first got them but they loosened up quickly within the first 3-4 wears. I really didn't have a bad, multi-month long break in like everybody else talks about. Sounds to me like everyone is buying their boots way to small for their feet. Boots are meant to be roomy and accommodate thick socks and insoles. I will say that these boots run narrow and long and the leather insoles are very thick and sharp on the edges so if you happen be in a situation where you have to stand a little off of the center of your foot, your heel can feel that sharp edge of that insole. I solved this by sanding the insoles sharp edges down with a piece of sandpaper. Smooth sailing now. Probably could have bought a wide instead but it was too late. I also can't believe that even though the leather insoles are seemingly hard as a rock when you touch them these boots just don't hurt my feet. It probably sounds like a lot of complaining but I really do love wearing these boots. In fact, I just bought another pair in amber harness leather and I also bought a pair of roughnecks. So I definitely recommend them even with their flaws. I just wish they would refine the hard, sharp and thick edges of the insoles and maybe shorten the length a quarter inch or so.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant quality, a slightly dressier go-to workhorse for daily adventures. I'm director of production in showbiz, and spend 12 hours a day on my feet supervising load-in and tech at indoor and outdoor venues. 13 years in this business, and I'm on my 5th pair of Redwings (3 are still happily in rotation). The iron ranger is my latest purchase (my first heritage) and they are now a year old. Fantastic boot. Bit of a haul breaking in, but only around the ankles (this leather is quality). I use the RW oil on my boots, so they still have a little glimmer on them, and have become my fall-back boot for jeans, chinos, and occasionally even a charcoal suit. I also own 8" high steel toes, and the 11" pull-on ropers. If I'm absolutely positive nobody's gonna drop something on my tootsies that day, or I need to throw on a blazer for a meeting or lunch, these guys find their way into my days more often than not. They head straight out for cocktails with me, too, even if the rest of my outfit changes! They have held up great, a year on these feet is quite a thing, and they show no signs of giving up look or fit or function still. If I had a tiny quibble, it would be that they are not quite dressy enough for a suit, but lack enough of a grip for icy expeditions in the city. @Redwing: where did the brogues go in the heritage collection?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best shoe I have had! I usually wear size 14 EE in most boots. The biggest the store had was 13 D. I tried them on and they surprisingly fit. They were slightly snug on the outside of my feet but after wearing them only a few days they feel like they were tailored just for me. Perfect shoe and will buy another pair soon!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very impressed I read alot of reviews to initially make me want this boot, it was clear by what people said they were tough and lasted forever, and looked great. I went into a store to try on a pair to confirm my size because i wear a 13 in boot and 14 in sneaker, and 13 was perfect. Now that i have received the boots, I have worn them everywhere since. they do look really good, slim profile for a boot which is nice, and they have outstanding build quality. I have not broken them in but right out of the box they were pretty comfortable for me. Im really impressed with these boots overall and i would highly recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This boot is AWESOME! Unbelievable fit right out of the box. The boots have a great, classic look and the fit and finish is second to none! I bought these to wear primarily for riding my motorcycle. I wanted the durability and also have a clean style to wear out to dinner or to the office. I definitely found what I was looking for! Nothing but compliments on the boots and guys wanting to know what brand and where to get them. You get what you pay for when it comes to Red Wing. Your feet have to last you your entire life!! Don't skimp on the footwear! Buy the best; I did! You won't be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well happy with them. Feel amazing and look as good. Was initially reluctant to buy due to the price - I've never paid even half that for shoes before - however, glad I did. I bought a pair online but they were too long so went to RW London and swapped them: the store were amazing - friendly and knowledgeable - and helped me get the right size; massive props to them. I've got the EE width (my foot is 11cm wide at the widest bit when stood) and they fit beautifully. They're comfortable and supportive without being stiff and unyielding. The sole is good and solid but still comfortable. Due to this and the excellent customer service I received, RW London now have customer for life. Good work.
