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.

  • Features a bump toe for more room up-front

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boots! This is my second pair of Iron Rangers. My 8111 is with me for 2 years now and i love them so much. They've been with me all over the world and keep looking better with age. Two weeks ago i bought an 8083 Hawthorne Muleskinner and i'm so impressed (again). While the leather feels a little bit thicker than my Amber Harness 8111, the break-in is going much smoother and easier (or maybe i'm just simply used to it by now). I wore them around the house for a few hours and already felt the leather started working with my feet while it warmed up. Obviously it is going to take quite a bit of time for the leather footbed and cork underneath to mould to my feet (i have a great example of that with my 8111s). I am really looking forward to the whole process anyway. After owning these boots for a few years now i can give my highest recommendation, but be nice to them - give them time to dry between wears (especially when you use them for many hours throughout the day), and don't forget to condition them every once in a while (leather footbed inside needs to be conditioned to stay supple and prevent cracking). Put simply - I'm a Red Wing guy for life!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boot, great fit, Love them! Twenty years ago I wore Red Wings when I worked in a factory, and I wanted another pair. I knew the quality and made in the USA is important to me. I have the 8111 Iron Ranger and LOVE them. The break-in period lasted about one week wearing them every day. Slightly snug with wool socks they have molded to my feet and feel great! I love the color and fit. I wear a 2E 11.5, and for this boot, I went to a 10.5 width D as the boot runs a little wide. More comfortable than my tennis shoes. Great looking boot!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Around the World and the Warehouse I purchased these boots in Sweden at the beginning of a world tour that I did not shoe-up properly for. 219 countries in 7 months, work from school to trails, hikes, and countless city miles; not to mention backpack carrying and sleeping on trains. These boots have done all and more whenever it has been asked of them. Now that I am home, I work 6+ days per week in a warehouse and a fair amount of that is running, not walking. I wear these boots each and every shift and have no complaints. They are comfortable, good looking, durable, and efficient. I will definitely be buying more from Red Wing and look forward to many years yet to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection Since I bought these boots, I’ve been wearing them almost daily for the past half year. They’re perfection and they age beautifully.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing boot. Hi there, Im stuck in sizing.... The Brannock device got I should use 11EE...I tried 10.5D and is too big, then the 10D bends too much before the toe cap stitching and think this is sign of large size, so I went down with a 9.5D...felt snug but read will stretch, so it is ok. I'm worry about the length, I don't feel space between the toes and the front, they are not touching but can't put a finger on the back side/heel. Have somebody the same issue? Hope I can get a good advice. Thank you in advance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boot! I already have the Beckman's and really like them. I've always liked the Iron Rangers, and finally decided to purchase a pair. Living where it snows, I like that they now come with a lug sole vs. the smooth sole. My Beckman's took quite a few months to break in, but these Iron Rangers take much less time to break in. Compared to the Beckman's, these seem almost broken in when purchased. I am really loving these!! They are the normal Redwing 1 size down from my normal size, but fit my narrow foot well. Super pleased with these - highly recommended!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected I've been thinking about getting these boots for a year or so. Visiting my local AD several times trying them out but over $300 was to step. One month ago I pulled the trigger anyway and I don't regret it. I thought they should be a really nice pair of boots but they are exellent. I've read that they are hard to break in but after three days they felt great.
