STYLE NO. 8114 : Iron Ranger

The 8114 is a rugged 6-Inch boot, featuring premium Black Harness leather, chrome hardware, speed hooks, Goodyear welt construction and triple stitched quality. Its double layer leather toe cap, leather heel pocket and Nitrile Cork outsole make it a favorite.

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 4 out of 5 by from Good As much as I like these boots, the durability of the leather wasn't as tough as I thought it would be . Don't get me wrong , the leather feels great however on multiple occasions the leather on my boots have peeled a bit at the top layer and revealed a light colored underside. I guess the best example would be scraping an apple with an apple peeler and having some apple skin hang off a little. The worst instance of this was while moving a wooden pallet at work. I lightly kicked the pallet in place and came home to realize the leather at the toe had peeled about 1/4 of an inch. This was an easy fix by applying some Weldwood contact cement and pressing down on it. can barely tell it has ripped. Now these are not my only pair of leather work boots (danner tachyon gtx )and they are subject to the same amount if not more abuse than these 8114's, and have never experienced the leather peeling (much less multiple occasions) . With that being said, that is the only con I have with these amazing boots.This doesn't discourage me from purchasing more Redwing boots down the road. They are definitely very good looking and comfortable once broken in, I wear them almost everyday outside of work and they are developing more character with each and every use!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely love them I've never been a boot guy, but after doing my research and trying these boots on, I knew I had to have a pair. I personally own iron ranger 8114 black harness. At first they were a little tough to break in, honestly, it's not that bad. If you can't handle that kind of light tingle, you shouldn't be wearing boots in the first place. Now, these boots are my favorite shoes to wear while working and outside of work. As a tip to people new to boots. Clean them and take care of them. These boots are an investment. If you do so, they'l last you a long time. I highly recommend these boots to everyone.

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from One year after purchase... Very happy with the purchase and service from Red Wing shoes in Hopkins, MN. Wear a size 14, so they had to be ordered. I recommend visiting your local store before buying, take the time to get sized, etc. Found out (at age 38) I have high arches, so I purchased the additional inserts. Break in wasn't too bad compared to others I've heard/read about, I do recommend wearing a thicker sock for the first month or two. Just went in last week and bought a second pair, Classic Mocs this time, looking forward to getting those.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great boot, brutal break-in. Having worked at Red Wing, I have about 10 pairs of boots from the line, and this black pair of Iron Rangers is my third pair from the Heritage line. My only real complaint is the hellacious break-in, it's much worse than my pair of Blacksmiths. The biggest difference isn't the toe-cap either, at least not in terms of how difficult and uncomfortable the break-in process is. I always question (internally) when a customer comes in and complains about the break-in with the Heritage line, they are usually just too sensitive and impatient (boots are to be broken in over a couple months!). However, with the Iron Ranger, I had the same issue/problem that many other Iron Ranger customers had, it's with the intense friction and pressure from directly on top of your foot, beneath the laces. There are times just sitting at my desk that it almost cuts off circulation, it's finally starting to relax, but I didn't have the same obstacle with the Blacksmith process. Other than that, it's a great, high-quality product as all of the Heritage boots tend to be, just be ready for the first 2-3 months of discomfort on top of your foot. Worth it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality, beware I ordered them online. First pair came with bruised leather, absolutely not premium material. I returned them, purchased second pair. This one came with damaged one shoe in a way that stitches were torn. On top of the shoes in this pair have slightly different colour. Both shipment contained a note confirming careful quality control- which is funny overall; I never wear them, second pair was returned immediately.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have 2 pair- 8114 and 8115 and both are excellent. I purchased a pair of the 8115 2 years ago. The rough and tough leather is excellent. It seems to be "self healing", and it is very forgiving on scratches and such. They say to go 1 size down, but in my case that wasn't for me. I purchased my regular size (10.5 D). I have found that I can adjust the size by adjusting how I lace them up. I have very flat feet, and the lack of arch support is a plus for me. Sometimes I use Red Wing inserts, and some times I don't depending on the condition of my feet that day. I have wide feet, and the combination of wide feet and flat feet make this boot fit me perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boots! First off they run about a size big, similar to my 875s. I normally wear size 13D shoe, but am a 12D in redwing heritage. The quality and craftsmanship is actually amazing, even better than the 875s imo. The break in period on these was significantly easier and quicker than my 875s as well. Overall, a great boot. I will eventually invest in getting a sole with some traction put on, however.
