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, 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 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 Made the plunge So far I gotta say I’m upset wth myself for not buying earlier. I Put them on the 1st day walked 2 miles with a thick and never gave me any problems n broke in beautifully. Love that they go wth jeans,chinos, and my carhartts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best pair off boots i've ever owned If anyone is worried about spending this much on a boot - don't. I wear mine every day and they hardly have worn down at all. I usually go through boots and shoes once every three months and having these boots close to a year and still going strong. I'd recommend the Iron Rangers to anyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get sized Visit a store and get sized. At first they will be tight, uncomfortable and your feet will hurt. If you can suck it up, in a few weeks to a month depending on how much you wear them expect the most comfortable pair of boots you have ever owned. Using a leather conditioner/salve will help speed up the break in, but may darken the color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Boots ! Great quality boots that are well made . I enjoy them so much that I bought a second pair just for work . As you wear them they’ll mold to your foot like a glove . They fit true to size so you’ll have to break them in . Definitely a great buy !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome It is because of these boots I was able to return to Construction/Carpentry after a 15' fall 4 yrs ago. I build corrals and repair barns 12-16 hrs a day in mud muck and wet grass. Good heavy wool socks and good pine tar leather protect keeps my feet dry and happy. I do use a ozone boot dryer that has kept them smelling like leather, and helps keep leather supple for the next morning. The leather, and how they broke in over last 6 months reminds me of my old baseball gloves, just getting better and better over time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A real life saver I purchased the iron ranger a little over a year ago but didn't get many opportunities to wear them. Just enough to get them broken in really. Until now that is I recently went on a trip to Morocco and had been my own tour guide. When I got there my feet were killing me because I had been wearing sneakers for a day and a half. But once I got settled in Marrakech they were all I wore. I'm really glad I decided to pack them because without them the trip would have been unbearable with all the walking I did . Thanks Redwing for making such a great boot

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Runs HUGE, but great fit Just purchased these boots about a week ago from a local red wings store. I definitely recommend trying them on in store because these run really large. I wear a 12 in Nike, 11.5 in Thursday boots, and I bought the 10.5 in these and they fit great. I was ready for some sore feet during the break in period, but for me, they were comfortable right away. I wore then about 6 hours the day after I bought them and they felt like they were a year old already with the supple leather. My only complaint is the canvas in the interior toe box....why add canvas? Full leather lining would be less prone to getting smelly, and a nice feature for such a high quality boot. The guy at redwing said they are putting the vibram mini-lug on all the new ones, so this cork sole is going away. It seems to have relatively good traction for being smooth, but the vibram will certainly be better.
