STYLE NO. 8119 : Iron Ranger

The 8119 is a rugged 6-Inch boot, featuring premium Oxblood Mesa leather, bronze hardware, speed hooks, Goodyear welt construction and triple stitched quality. Its double layer leather toe cap, leather heel pocket and Vibram 430 Mini-lug 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 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous leather and quality The biggest fear I had about these boots was the break in process that so many have moaned about. Yes they are tough as nails, but if you double your socks and wear them daily, within a week you have a boot that you don't want to take off. The biggest draw back to these boots is just how good looking they are. You may not want to use them for anything and risk blemishing them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They look great with jeans I purchased a pair of these when I was 16 they great looking boots they may seem a little expensive to some folks but when you figure im 56 and still wearing them that makes them an incredible value mink oil a couple times a year my feet never got wet we've been through a lot 4 years at a factory 2 years Mason and 34 years Painting contractor I'm not saying I wore them every day but there the only boots I ever had and I still wear them just bought a pair of Irish Setters to replace them you cant go wrong with a pair of Redwing

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get through the break in and they'll be the best boots you own! I'm 2 years in now and can definitely say these are the best boots I've ever owned! They still look fantastic when cleaned up and no major signs of wear. It's been said time and again but I'll attest to the long break in period. Mine were not fully broken in until the end of year one, wearing on average 2 or 3 days a week. I can recall shifting my weight around at concerts trying to get comfortable. Now I can easily wear them day in and day out. Size them down so they fit snug, they will break in nicely and form to your feet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved my feet! While getting ready to attend last year's Great American Beer Festival, my feet were killing me. I needed shoes that would give me full support and Redwings fit the bill. The boots broke in completely over that weekend and have just gotten better every day since. I just ordered my 2nd pair, a charcoal option this time!

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 5 out of 5 by from All around Great footwear Iron rangers are a quality boot and wont let you down as long as you take good care of them. The boots are mostly leather so you really should let them dry completely after you use them heavily, or even after most use. I have gone more than 50 miles of hiking and did not get blisters and did not slip at all. They get more and more comfortable and look better and better, and will continue to get better as long as i take care of them. I would recommend these boots to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing boots I absolutely love these boots I work in a machine shop with oil all over the floors and could not find shoes or boots to keep the oil out of my shoes. I bought these boots and OMG I love them not only are my feet dry from oil but they feel great after a break in period! I liked these so much I bought a second pair for normal wear. No more tennis shoes for me....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Many compliments on my Iron Rangers After much deliberation I finally purchased these great boots. Yes as many have said, they do require patience with the breaking in of them. I have had mine since January, 2017. While I don't wear them everyday as I rotate my boots daily and never wear the same pair on consecutive days, they were great after about two weeks. have been using the boot oil on them and have been really pleased with the results. Looking to get a second pair for my boot collection. Just haven't decided which Red Wings to get.
