Description

Redwing's Iron Ranger is another iconic Redwing style. This boot is extremely versatile in how it can be worn. It looks ideal under a pair of selvedge denim and also looks very nice under a suit. The boot can be resoled and also is extremely durable with the cap toe. A favorite here at Felding Co. Made in the USA.

History

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.
