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 110+ year history.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from solid product Purchased Red Wing Iron Ranger Copper Rough and Tough after reading lots of on-line written and video reviews. Wanted more of an urban boot rather than true hiking/backpacking boot. Pleased that this boot easily covers both functions with best performance in urban performance. Main concern was sizing. Measuring device at Red Wing store indicated 11.5 size (I usually wear 11.0 to 12.0 depending on type of footwear and manufacturer) and store employee recommended same size. For me, these really fit true to size. I possibly cold have sized down to 11.0, but I prefer a roomier fit in the toebox. I think an 11.0 would result in a bit of a cramped feeling with regard to anterior fit for me. Simply my preference. First week of wear was brutal. Foot area and sole of boot presented no problem with break-in. The ankle area was so stiff that I was forced to change my gait pattern and heel strike while walking and I developed knee pain in right leg. After 1st 3 wears, (4 hours first wear, 6 hours second, and 10 hours third) I conditioned boots with Red Wing leather conditioner and break-in continued without problem. Now, these are incredibly comfortable and cork midsole is well on way to conforming to my foot. Highly recommend this boot and am saving for second purchase. I believe a pair of black "Blacksmith's" will be next Red Wing Purchase. Considered lots of other manufacturers and styles, but really am stricken by the quality of this product. Plus USA based company with USA manufacture of Heritage line doesn't hurt my decision.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from lacks support , rock hard feel I've had my Iron rangers for about 3 years now and they are completely broken in. What the marketing info states about the footbed slowly forming to a custom fit is wishfull thinking. I hardly ever wear them anymore because they are so unforgiving. It feels like im wearing wooden shoes. With high quality footbeds like Superfeet that improve arch support they are slightly more tolerable but still rock hard under foot. My only suggestion would be to use a cushion insert or Gel insert but those just make my feet hot. So if you wear em to church once a week or out on the town you'll probably like them. They are well made and good looking but for all day wear they will leave you crying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Do It. First off, the quality of the materials and the craftsmanship is top notch. On top of that the design aesthetic looks great. As far as the comfort goes, they will be...eventually. It took me about 3 weeks of wearing them every other day, for full 10 hour days, to get rid of all the pinch points and such. The footbed now has grooves that fit my foot and I can tell that it will get more and more comfortable. IMPORTANT: The fit. TRY THEM ON! The size number is not the most important part of the fit. For example, I wear a size 13 in athletic shoes and casual shoes (up to 13.5); size 11.5 Iron Rangers gave me enough space to FREELY wiggle my toes. The problem is the area that goes around my arch was too tight and the ball of my foot landed in a bad spot. I tried on and bought a size 12, which was snug around the arch, but had the ball of my foot land in a better spot. The fit AROUND your foot is what is important and should be a bit snug/stiff when new. Lastly, the Vibram sole is good on concrete, but not much else. So just keep in mind what your use will be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best looking and most comfortable boot I have ever owned. The more I wear them, the more I love them. Out of the box these boots wrap themselves around your feet like a comfy blanket. If you want a comfortable boot that looks great and only gets better as they age, then get yourself a pair of these boots, you will never regret it, and they never go out of style.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lasted one month My father in law bought me these for my wedding I wore them in England on our honeymoon shortly after our return noticed a very deep crease in the toe in which turned into a one inch tear Really disappointing always heard redwings were good but one month not so much

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Expensive boot but I buy Made in USA My first pair I had exchanged because the outside part of the left shoe's leather was to thin and creased Horribly after a few wears. The awesome manager acknowledged that it would compromise the quality and durability. If he hadn't had done that I would have bounced right back to Allen Edmonds. Inspect the shoe carefully before buying.
