STYLE NO. 8119 : Iron Ranger

The rugged 6-inch 8119 Iron Ranger features premium Oxblood Mesa leather, bronze 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.

STYLE NO. 8119 : 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 8119 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 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I love these boots, takes some time to break in but after that it feels amazing

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Long lasting, but quality control is HORRIBLE I’ve had these boots for 2 years and they are holding up just fine. However, the quality control on these are terrible. The left and right boots are drastically different, the toe cap is shorter on one boot, the leather on each boot is a different thickness and color, and the sole and welt was attached crooked on one boot. I paid full price for boots that definitely should have been factory seconds. I wear them because they are comfortable, made in the US, and can be recrafted, but if I could go back, I probably would have purchased a different boot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boots I read all the reviews on these boots and was skeptical on them being comfortable but I live in work boots for a living these were comfortable right out of the box I wear them all day long with no problems and buy them a 1/2 size down

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 Hands down the best all around boot on the market Fit, comfort, utility, style, and build all are top notch. I own 6 different pairs and love them all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, versatile boots! Living in northern Europe, working as a geologist, I find these boots to be an ideal compromise for working outdoors in mud, slush, gravel, dirt and water, and at the same time being able to meet a client back at the office without disgrace. I've had these boots for about a year and have travelled the world with them, and they have held up perfectly! I think this is partly because they are constructed with a steel shank. However, the steel shank will assure that you will be held up at airport security checks, just take them off before passing the scanner. Being an ex-military and ex-airborne infantryman, I love that the Iron Rangers looks a bit like old school jumping boots! I also own the legendary Alden 405 "Indy boot", which is probably a bit more refined and also cool looking, but I still trust my Iron Rangers for most of my travels. Break in was a non-issue for me, just wear good quality wool socks and you will be fine. For serious outings, like backpacking or hunting for example in Scandinavia or Alaska, they are not sturdy, waterproof and warm enough. For everything else - perfect!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall good, but there are several questions to the welt. leather of good quality, but badly sewed welt, as seen in the photo. I did not like the fabric lining inside the boot. Correctly choose the size of the boot indicated on the style number. Do not take a flat sole, living in cold countries кожа хорошего качества, но плохо пришит рант, как видно на фото. Не понравилась тканевая подкладка внутри ботинка. Правильно выбирайте размер ботинка, указанный на стиле номер. Не берите плоскую подошву, проживая в холодных странах
