STYLE NO. 8119 : Iron Ranger

The rugged 6-inch 8119 Iron Ranger features premium Oxblood Mesa leather, bronze 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 5 out of 5 by from Traditional Quality Craftsmanship This may turn out to be the best non-steel toe work boot I have ever owned! I did locate a Red Wing Shoe Store before purchasing something. I tend to wear a size 10 in other Red Wing boots. These fit more like a dress shoe. Size 9 is what I needed. It was good having help. With some heritage varieties, I was unable to even put my foot in the boot due to my high arches. For the agony of my previous worn-out boots, these feel like slippers after only a day and a half. For the break-in period, it may be best to lace them low. I wear through heals quickly. These nailed heals can be replaced for a nominal cost, along with the sole. I do prefer a traditional, unlined, and repairable boot. Not everyone does. For proper fit, there boots should fit like a glove.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best boot money can buy I’ve had this boot for over two years now. Boots usually last me 10 months. I wear them everyday no matter what I’m doing. They go to work with me, they go hiking with me. I’ve submerged them in waterfalls, climed mountains, hiked 10+miles at a time. They been through snow, salt, mud, water, heat, humidity. They’ve been abused by all means. But all I have to do is put a little mink oil on them again and they look business causal! I can wear them with anything! I love these boots and plan on putting new soles on them when the time comes. Worth the money for sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Amazing boot! I have had my pair of iron rangers for about 4 maybe even 5 years now. Bottom line is, I've had them so long I don't even remember when I exactly got them. All I know is I have worn these things through absolutely anything and everything! I've worn them when I do landscaping in the summer when I'm out of school. I clean them up and wear them on the weekends. I wear them when I go shooting in the field. I wear these bad boys everywhere! I've had them resoled a couple of times and plan on wearing them until I can no longer! I recommend redwing boots to everyone I know. I just read the one review where the guy gave them one star and said most of the other reviews on here are from when people first get them. Well buddy here's a review from somebody that's had them for five years and they're still going strong as ever. They're definitely showing their age though but come on. They're five years old

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A perfect all round boot I was looking for a good year round boot and the Iron Ranger fit the bill. It is incredibly hardwearing and after over a year's worth of use it shows almost no damage. The leather has stood up to mud, sand, concrete, snow and ice without staining or marking. The soles have worn slightly but i expect to get at least 3 years before they need resoling, which is superb. These boots took a few weeks to break in the footbed, but no more than usual for goodyear welted products. Criticisms. I have only two criticisms. One, the soles are incredibly sturdy but lac any padding at all, so if you are intending to walk any distance in these you will want to invest in either very thick socks or a softer insole. Two, these dont handle snow / freezing temps particuarly well. It doesn't damage the boot at all, but your feet will get cold. To be fair they weren't designed for that. Overall an excellent buy and well worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality boot This is an amazing quality boot. The leather is durable and the overall craftmanship is outstanding. Classic looking boot that molds to your foot. So comfortable you can wear this boot for days!! Very happy with this purchase. Find a good cobbler that can refurbish the soles and you'll have this shoe for a decade.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic boots So unlike a lot of reviewers I’ve worn these boots going on 3 years, almost daily. Yes, they’re stiff . initially, yes, they’re a minor uncomfortable at first. yes, there is upkeep with these boots. To me, All of those I think are positive aspects because they become gloves for your feet. I walk forever in them and don’t get fatigued. You should go into a store, like I did, and have your feet scanned for correct fit. I had to half size down and found out I have wider feet than I thought. These are heirloom quality and should be treated as such. Wear them and love them. I wax and mink oil them to preserve them and I’ve never had a thread tear or fray. Buy them, love them, wear them.
