Red Wing Iron Ranger 8111 Boots

A Boot for Life


Inspired by the “Iron Rangers” from the Mesabi Iron Range in Northern Minnesota, the Iron Ranger boot from Redwing Shoes speaks of the city’s people and way of life: simple, tough, determined. Meticulously handcrafted in the USA for the last 95 years, Redwing makes shoes for the reality of life. The Iron Ranger is not a fashion boot, it’s a work boot that breaks in slowly and looks better with age (evidenced by my pair above). Saddled with a Vibram Cork Nitril sole, 1 ¼ inch heel and a lace-up/hook eye front the boot is constructed with amber colored harness leather and durable stitch-down welt. Every man needs a robust boot with the ability to look good with a variety of pants, on a variety of occasions. The Iron Ranger is sure to impress.

Take Note: Buy for fit, not for size with these boots. Even though you can find them online, go to a store and get properly fitted. There is a reason Redwing doesn’t sell them direct or through catalog.
