STYLE NO. 8111 : Iron Ranger

New Vibram Mini-Lug sole coming Fall 2018. 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 108+ year history.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic quality I had been looking for a new pair of boots after my Lowa boots sole finally died and I wanted a pair that could be worn smart or for a day out. After a very short internet search: Redwing. These boots fit the bill. At about 3 months old of daily use they get better looking each time I wear them. They have developed a lovely broken in shape of my foot and a patina is coming along. When it’s time for a night out or a dinner with the wife: clean and polish. Look smart. When it’s time to walk the dog or head out for the day they do the job perfectly. Now just to be clear about sizing, I wear a uk 9.5 on most boots and shoes. I ordered these UK 8.5 and they fit like a 9.5. They are made very long (why not adjust sizing charts redwing?). Breaking in took about 2 weeks total, suck it up and once your done they are like old slippers when you put them on. Now that winter is on its way Iv been looking at getting an 8” high boot and Redwing Harvester boots look just the ticket! You get what you pay for. Buy cheap - Buy twice.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Long lasting, but quality control is HORRIBLE I’ve had these boots for 2 years and they are holding up just fine. However, the quality control on these are terrible. The left and right boots are drastically different, the toe cap is shorter on one boot, the leather on each boot is a different thickness and color, and the sole and welt was attached crooked on one boot. I paid full price for boots that definitely should have been factory seconds. I wear them because they are comfortable, made in the US, and can be recrafted, but if I could go back, I probably would have purchased a different boot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hands down the best all around boot on the market Fit, comfort, utility, style, and build all are top notch. I own 6 different pairs and love them all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall good, but there are several questions to the welt. leather of good quality, but badly sewed welt, as seen in the photo. I did not like the fabric lining inside the boot. Correctly choose the size of the boot indicated on the style number. Do not take a flat sole, living in cold countries кожа хорошего качества, но плохо пришит рант, как видно на фото. Не понравилась тканевая подкладка внутри ботинка. Правильно выбирайте размер ботинка, указанный на стиле номер. Не берите плоскую подошву, проживая в холодных странах

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One Year On and Looking Strong! I live in Sydney Australia but bought my first pair of 8111s a year ago whilst in Brooklyn. I broke them in after only a couple of days walking around NYC without any issues and have worn them almost every day since (and in all weather extremes). I would definitely recommend buying first pair in store to get a perfect fit. I oil my boots every couple of months using RW Mink Oil and they have now matured into a great dark colour. I am hoping to pick up a pair of 875 Moc Toes from the same Brooklyn store when I return later in the year!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great-looking boots but soles made from a hard material and therefore are hard on the feet. I love the LOOK of these boots (my second pair of RWs) but comfort-wise they have a problem - the sole. The first pair I bought (Heritage Moccasins - back in 1995) had rubber soles. These have a hard sole, not sure what its made of. I WISH they had rubber soles like my other RW boots because hard rubber is without a doubt the best material for shoe soles as it's quiet and yielding. The hard cork or whatever it is on these Rangers doesn't work so good on a lot of surfaces. I am thinking of glueing an aftermarket rubber sole to them to address this issue. Other than that, they are terrific boots. The only other concern I have is the tongue. I hope it doesn't wear out. Reason being is the tongues wore out on my first pair and I had to have them reinforced. I wish RW would add a double layer of leather on their tongues too, as this is the most vulnerable area in terms of wear and tear.

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 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
