STYLE NO. 8084 : Iron Ranger

The 8084 is a rugged 6-inch boot, featuring premium Black 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 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 The perfect boot! I have 3 pairs of Iron Rangers in various colors, with the black harness being my most recent purchase. Once broken in, there is simply not a better overall boot on the market for both style and quality. They do run big, so try them on before you buy. My first pair of IRs were a 9.5 and still fit relatively well, but I've realized that I'm a 9 in most pairs. Try them on and give them some real time to break in. You won't regret it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boots!! These are my 2nd pair of Iron Rangers, but the 1st pair with the lug sole. The lug soles improve shock absorption and also reduce noise walking the halls at work. Fit is as expected. I wear 13 in my running shoes and 12 in my Red Wings.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from They're simply not comfortable. First off, they run big. Go into a store and get expert fitted. The problem is they simply are not comfortable. They are the worst boots I've owned for comfort. I thought it was the break-in period at first, but I have almost 100 miles on these and they're still just terrible. I've tried two different inserts, neither helped much. I conditioned the leather a ton to get it to soften. Blisters constantly from the top toe cap, there is no support in them, back pain is worse, and I've just never been more sore from a pair of boots. Sadly, these probably actually will last forever. Mostly because they'll only come out of the closet when I need the traction on ice.

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 Excellent Boots! I bought factory 2nds from a buddy and I couldn't tell you the difference between those and the 1st. A little cleaning and conditioning and it looked brand spanking new. I got these in a 7D. For some odd reason, they fit very similar to my pair of Beckmans which are a 7.5D. Both are a touch loose at the toes. Maybe I'm a 6.5 in Redwings. No problem though, I threw in a pair of insoles for my Iron Rangers and they fit like a glove now. If you have a store near you, I highly suggest going in person to get sized. The leather is of fantastic quality. Great overall look and feel. I highly recommend this iconic boot! My next purchase are the Roughnecks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Black iron ranger. 8084 Love the boots, looks great with a black untuckit shirt! Love the contrast of black to tan, Goodyear welt construction! Runs large so order .5 smaller....I like to break them in with heavy wool socks....about 1 month!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the investment! Love my Rangers. As a tool maker, I'm on my feet at least 8 hours a day. Once I lace up my boots they don't come off for about 12 hrs. I couldn't be happier with them!
