STYLE NO. 8111 : Iron Ranger

The 8111 is a rugged 6-Inch boot, featuring premium Amber 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 110+ year history.

STYLE NO. 8111 : Iron Ranger

A new pair of Red Wing Heritage boots should fit comfortably tight on your foot, with enough room to freely wiggle your toes. Over time the full grain leather upper, leather footboard and cork midsole mold to your feet, creating an enduring and customized fit over time with each wear.


The 8111 is built using the No. 8 Last:

  • Many customers buy Red Wing Heritage footwear 1/2 size smaller than their normal size
  • Trying on Red Wing Heritage footwear in a store is recommended to get the perfect fit
  • Features a bump toe for more room up-front
  • Fits a variety of foot shapes

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 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 Super Nice Boots! First off I want to start by saying congratulations to Red Wing!. They make an outstanding product! I bought the Iron Ranger 8111 Amber harness. These Boots are so comfortable honestly right out of the box! These Boots are more comfortable than my sneakers. I don't even wear sneakers anymore, all I wear are these boots everyday. My wife laughs at me because I never take them off. I've been wearing red wings for 16 years and along with my 1907's these are my favorite pair. I wear these boots out on the town, and I wear them to work every day. Do not hesitate, go out right now and buy them, you will not regret it!. My 1907's are a size 13, I take a size 13 in everything else and in Iron Rangers I take a size 12 and they fit perfectly. Yes I highly recommend These Boots!!! I'm always getting compliments on these boots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A month, Really!? A month... Really, a month... Yes it takes a month to break in these boots... They sized me and they were snug. I also bought the slim insoles, I was told they would make them more comfortable... I wore them every night for a few hours... The next week I wore them to work till lunch, (It was all my feet could take)... About two weeks in - I found a bucket of water, stood in the bucket for a few minutes and then did my Saturday erronds... Lasted till lunch. I took the insoles out and the boots felt a lot better. The bridge of my foot must be bigger than most... anyway... About a week later I found the bucket of water again.. Wore the boots to work - changed into dry socks at lunch and wore the boots for the rest of day. I have owned them for a month now and they fit like a glove and I wear them all day, everyday... Maybe my feet simply gave up the fight - whatever it is - I find them comfortable now will recommend them to anyone... Just beware - the first month is a bear.

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 Best boot ever. Purchased these over a year ago and wear them everyday. I am extremely rough on my gear and the 8111 is one piece of equipment I never have to worry about breaking. Took about a month to break in but after that they are molded to my feet. Rain or shine, hot or cold they do the job and keep me on my feet

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Boots Best Boots ever. Soft and Comfy from day one, no need to break, just use mink oil once a week. Awesome product!

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.
