STYLE NO. 8111 : Iron Ranger

The Iron Ranger is an American icon that is beloved for its standout style and long-lasting construction. With its toe cap, speed hooks, and Vibram® outsole, there’s no mistaking this leather legend.

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 110+ year history.

STYLE NO. 8111 : Iron Ranger

A new pair of Red Wing Heritage boots should fit comfortably tight on your foot, with enough room to freely wiggle your toes. Over time the full grain leather upper, leather footboard and cork midsole mold to your feet, creating an enduring and customized fit over time with each wear.


The 8111 is built using the No. 8 Last:

  • Many customers buy Red Wing Heritage footwear 1/2 size smaller than their normal size
  • Trying on Red Wing Heritage footwear in a store is recommended to get the perfect fit
  • Features a bump toe for more room up-front
  • Fits a variety of foot shapes

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No longer Copper R&T Love the boots however I did my first cleaning using the suggested products that are said not to darken the boots (Foam Leather Cleaner and Boot cream.) Darkened the boots to the point they look like Oxblood Mesa Leather or Amber Harness Leather

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Form after 2 month wearing them First few weeks were not funny but afterwards they feel like a second skin. Great admirable boot

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice boots After reading many reviews of these boots, I decided to pull the trigger and pay the hefty price for them. The store manager fitted me and gave me an 11D and I usually roll with 12. A bit tight getting them on initially but the store manager said these boots are like baseball gloves. Gotta be broken in but once they are,... perfection. I’ve worn these boots for one whole weekend now and I’m super impressed with them. Strangely I found that buying replacement laces from red wing that aren’t so stiff has made a massive difference in the comfort during the break in time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The ultimate boot I own 9 pair of Red Wing boots and these are my favorite. Like any boot in the No. 8 last, I wear a full size down(11) from my sneaker size(12). It’s imperative to get fit in the Red Wing store. Each pair of these vary in size and the leather itself. Once I’d decided that I wanted these boots, the salesman brought out several pair for me to try on. Because these are hand made each boot will have its own distinct properties. The pair I chose are perfect for me. Mine were comfortable the day I bought them. There was a couple of hours of stiffness and then I was good to go. With these in my arsenal, I have to force myself to wear other boots. They are so comfort and look so good that I’d wear them every day. I give them a days rest in between wears because I want the leather to rest and retain its shape inside of shoe trees. These could just as easily be my every day boots. I’d wear these for everything except hot construction work or anything where I’m using chemicals. They’d totally last but they’re too beautiful and I don’t want to get them messed up. I own Iron Rangers in Copper and Charcoal Rough and Tough. In my attempt to keep the copper from having to be darkened too much, I’ll wear the charcoal on days that I’ll encounter dirtier situations. These are by far my favorite boots anyone makes. I held out from by these for awhile because I didn’t get what the hype was about. Now I totally understood. Make these the first Red Wings you buy. You’ll inevitably want more (it happens to all of us) but you won’t need to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Boots They are the best quality boot I have ever had. At first I thought they were pricey, but they are well worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Red wings heritage shoes are some of my favorite shoes out there I absolutely love the richness of the oxblood. Red wings heritage shoes are some of my favorite shoes because of the fact that if you put effort into caring/cleaning it. It'll last a bit longer than a pair of sneakers. Although i wish the sole was a tad more resistant to regular casual wear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Masterpiece These boots are great. Very high quality leather and craftsmanship that will last a long time. The boots fully break in after a couple weeks of wear. For me the heel section was a little narrow but perfectly molded to my foot over time. If you are on the fence about purchasing a pair don’t hesitate. This was the best footwear purchase I’ve ever made.
