Red Wing 8083 Iron Ranger Details
THE IRON RANGER
The Iron Ranger was originally built for iron miners in the 1930s. In the decades since, it has grown indispensable for owners from all walks of life thanks to its iconic style and longevity. The six-inch boot’s signature feature is a leather toe cap that is as distinctive as it is durable. Each pair develops a personalized fit and custom comfort over time thanks to leather insoles and a cork midsole that form to feet. The boots are built with a Goodyear welt and Puritan triple-stitch construction, and brass speed hooks provide precision lacing and a visual hit of hardware. The Iron Ranger is anchored with a Vibram® 430 Mini-lug outsole.
NO. 8 LAST
Features a bump toe that allows toes to move more naturally. Fits a wide variety of foot shapes.
A new pair of Red Wing Heritage footwear should fit comfortably tight on the foot, with enough room to freely wiggle toes. As you wear the footwear, the full grain leather upper, insole, and cork midsole will mold to your feet, creating an increasingly personalized fit over time. We recommend trying on footwear in store to ensure proper fit.
ROUGHOUT & NUBUK LEATHER
Roughout and Nubuck leather is created using a reverse-suede technique. Many tanneries split and thin hides to create suede, but our tannery simply uses the other side of the hide. This allows us to create beautiful roughout and nubuck leather with no loss of durability. Actively maintaining leather is the most effective way to ensure integrity and longevity.
