Red Wing Iron Ranger | Amber 8111

  •  Made in Minnesota
  • Style 8111

Originally constructed for iron miners in the Mesabi Iron Range of northern Minnesota, The Iron Ranger is a tough but comfortable boot, built to endure long days and tough conditions. Classic 6" styling that's rugged, yet sophisticated create this boot's unique look. The 8111 features premium Amber Harness leather, chrome hardware, speed hooks, Goodyear welt construction and triple stitched quality.

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.
