STYLE NO. 8114 : Iron Ranger

The 8114 is a rugged 6-Inch boot, featuring premium Black 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 108+ year history.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing shoes So comfortable and they look amazing. People see me on the street and give me double finger guns. Great boots, they shout! Seriously, I do get compliments. I went only a 1/2 size down because I have wide feet. Definitely go into the store for sizing - especially if you have wide feet.

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 Wore them to the interview....got the job. The quality is evident from the compliments I get about these nearly 4 year old boots. My breaking in period suggestion: wear them for a hearty chore: mow the yard with a push mower, split wood, anything to get a full range of motion out of them and they will soon feel like a second skin.

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 Great boots! Normally wear 13EE bought 12D's I wanted to share my sizing and break in period. I normally wear 13EE in almost all shoes/boots and have pretty wide feet (especially my right foot). I took the advice of almost everyone else that reviewed and sized down a full size and bought 12D (gambled and went with D width, since EE is not available in black harness color). The length is perfect, with plenty of wiggle room for my toes, but they were tight width wise, but nothing unbearable. After 3 weeks of continuous wear (about 8-9 hours a day, 5 days a week, these boots are starting to form to my feet great and the pain spots are almost gone. The first two weeks of break in were pretty rough, but not enough to stop me from wearing them. I only got pain on the top of my left foot where the boot bends, and along the outside of my wider right foot because the leather hasn't broken in and widened with my foot yet. I slowly see the boots widening with my foot as they break in though, and they are quite comfortable now. I can't imagine buying EE in these, as I feel once they broke in, they would be too loose. Before I wore them for the first time, I bought the Red Wing leather cream, and rubbed in a good layer of leather cream on the boots, ran a warm blow dryer over them to help the cream soak in, and let them sit for 24 hours. Then I wiped them down, laced them up, and have been wearing them since. I feel the leather cream and hair dryer helped soften the leather and helped the break in period for sure. Anyways, I love these boots and can only imagine another couple weeks and these will be fully broken in. My biggest advice is to definitely size down a full size, if you wear EE you should be good with D width (just give them time to form to your feet because they will), buy the leather cream and apply liberally, hair dryer them and let them sit for 24 hours before you wear them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing daily boots I’m from Rome, Italy, I’ve just bought a pair of Iron and a pair of classic Moc Toe, two extraordinary pairs of handcrafted boots. I’ll do an heavy use outside due to my job and the first impression is totally positive! I suggest You to try at least one time a pair of RWS! Soon i’m coming in the USA and surely I’ll buy a new pair! Thanks a lot to RWS artisans

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good As much as I like these boots, the durability of the leather wasn't as tough as I thought it would be . Don't get me wrong , the leather feels great however on multiple occasions the leather on my boots have peeled a bit at the top layer and revealed a light colored underside. I guess the best example would be scraping an apple with an apple peeler and having some apple skin hang off a little. The worst instance of this was while moving a wooden pallet at work. I lightly kicked the pallet in place and came home to realize the leather at the toe had peeled about 1/4 of an inch. This was an easy fix by applying some Weldwood contact cement and pressing down on it. can barely tell it has ripped. Now these are not my only pair of leather work boots (danner tachyon gtx )and they are subject to the same amount if not more abuse than these 8114's, and have never experienced the leather peeling (much less multiple occasions) . With that being said, that is the only con I have with these amazing boots.This doesn't discourage me from purchasing more Redwing boots down the road. They are definitely very good looking and comfortable once broken in, I wear them almost everyday outside of work and they are developing more character with each and every use!
