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. PROTECT YOUR INVESTMENT 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. Learn how to care for your Red Wing Heritage Roughout and Nubuck leather.
