STYLE NO. 8083 : IRON RANGER

The rugged 6-inch 8083 Iron Ranger features premium Hawthorne Muleskinner 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 local residents of the Mesabi Iron Range in northern Minnesota are proudly known as Iron Rangers due to their rugged toughness. The Iron Ranger work boots were built for iron miners in this region who required a double layer of leather over the toe for extra safety. It’s tough and elegant all at once.

ROUGHOUT LEATHER

Roughout leather is created using a reverse-suede technique at their very own S.B. Foot Tanning Co. While most tanneries split, thin and weaken the hide to create the rough suede surface, they simply use the other side of the hide. By doing so, they avoid splitting or thinning their full-grain hides. This makes their Roughout leather just as strong and durable as their other leathers.

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.
