    A workhorse of a boot for any part of your life.

    The Iron Ranger Boots from Red Wing Heritage have been protecting the feet of miners for more than a century, so there's a good chance they can protect yours. Oil-tanned leather is used for the upper section, with a double layer over the toe for added protection on the job. A leather insole conforms to your foot's natural shape, letting these boots become more comfortable over time. A steel shank throughout the midsole increases both stability and support for those long stretches of time spent on your feet. Vibram's 430 mini-lug sole won't crack and lose durability after a few years like all-rubber soles sometimes do. Triple-stitched uppers and a Goodyear Welt construction ensure that these boots stand the test of time.

    Excellent Work Boots

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 13
    • Height: 6'3"
    • Weight: 225lbs

    My first and still my favorite pair of work boots. The 6" size is perfect for everyday wear with jeans or khakis. I wear them year-round, putting them through the ringer in rain, mud and sunshine. About twice a year I will clean them with warm water and a brush, with the laces off, and then condition with Obenauf's leather cleaner. This keeps the patina beautiful and helps preserve the leather. If you're ever unsure of how to clean, cobble or adjust, simply take them to any Red Wing retail location and they will take care of you.

    Sizing: I bought these true to my running shoe size (13) and found they were a hair too big after consistent use. With thick socks it is not noticeable. I would recommend buying them to the same size as your dress shoe sizing. If they are tight but not unbearable, that's good - the leather will stretch and form to your foot. Within about a month they will be perfect.

    Color: a beautiful shade of tan/brown, they get even more beautiful with some scuffs and age.

    Looks: You can rock these with just about any outfit and look great.

    Such great boots

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    The boots were a great purchase. The size was just right and quality of the boots look so good. It was a bit of a tight when I first tried them on, but after some time they are easy to get used to

    Beautiful Boots!

      I got these for my husband as his wedding shoes, and for use go forward too and he LOVES them! He wears them almost every day to work. They look great dressed up or dressed down with jeans. The leather takes a little to wear in, but now feels great. And even worn in, they still look great!

      Your future self says thanks!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: 8.5
      • Height: 5'8"
      • Weight: 140lbs

      These boots feel like they will be around for a long time! Well built and good looking. I went down a half size and they fit well. They take some time to get broken in, about 8 days in them so far and they are starting to soften up. The boots start out pretty narrow but the leather stretches over time to truly mold to your foot.

      Best Boots Ever. Hands Down.

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I wear a size 9.5-10. After trying a few sizes i decided on the 9. You could say they run a bit large. I wore them everyday for a week and they've broken in nicely. I treat them with the Red WIngs Heritage Boot Cream and even after one use I've noticed the leather to be softer and more broken. I'm sure I'll have these for years and years to come.

      Great rugged boot!

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: 10.5
      • Height: 5'11"
      • Weight: 175lbs

      These boots are great right out of the box. Very high quality that you would expect from Red Wings, and the hawthorne color I bought has the perfect distressed look. I wear an 11 in both sneakers and dress shoes. I sized down to a 10.5 and they fit perfect (I'm 5'11, 175 with narrow feet). I also wanted to give a shoutout to Wes from Backcountry who helped me with my order via the chat feature. He provided great advice (sizing down a half size) and excellent all around customer service!

      Awesome! Haven't taken them off.

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: 9
      • Height: 5'10"
      • Weight: 170lbs

      Sizing is a bit large. I wear 9.5 or 10. I decided to order these in a 9 and they fit like a dream. They do, however take a bit to break in. I assure you it is totally worth it! Let me know if you have any questions regarding care, wear, or fit.

      Causual Boot, work boot, or BOTH!!!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: 8.5
      • Height: 5'10"
      • Weight: 165lbs

      This boot is amazing! I have used it for light duty construction including landscaping, window installation and painting. It has held up to all of those with ease. I also use these boots in the office and for a casual night! They look great and feel great!

      A few things to pay attention to are the sizing and maintenance. On this boot I am an 8.5, the Moc-Toes a 9, and a Nike running shoe a 10. You need to size down big time. The break-in period is about 15 full days before they start to feel amazing. In the beginning they should feel a bit tight in the heel and arch and then after a while they form to your foot. As far as maintenance goes, you definitely need to purchase a brush and oil if you are looking to get the longest life out of them. If you use them for constuction, I would say you need to clean them every 3 weeks! If you use them casually I would say every 5 weeks. Not up-keeping the boots will result in cracking and will definitely change the appearance of the boots.

      Overall! I don't mind the maintencance time or break'in period! These boots are amazing in every sense.

      Let me know if you have any questions on anything having to do with Red Wings!

      Great quality boots, sizing was my issue

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 8
      • Height: 5'9"
      • Weight: 150lbs

      I ordered these in a size 8 (I typically wear men's 8 or 8.5 in sneakers/snowboard boots) and like the other reviews say they run big compared to sneakers but true to size for dress shoes/leather boots. The quality is definitely top-notch and I could tell they would last. We don't carry the size 7, so I ended up purchasing the women's Iron Ranger directly from Red Wing. The best feedback I can give is on sizing. Depending on your foot width/shape/preference, I would say to size down 1-1.5 sizes. I like a tighter fit through the forefoot (not length) on leather shoes since they do break in a bit. I went with the women's 8.5 (39 EU) and the ones I tried from Backcountry were a men's 8 (41 EU).

      Perfect fit

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 12D
      • Height: 6'3"
      • Weight: 238lbs

      I tried these boots on in a RW store before purchasing online. My feet measured on a brannock device L 13D / R 13.5D. I sized down to an 11.5 with space to freely wiggle my toes but it felt too snug on the sides with thin socks so I knew they wouldn't work with medium wool. I ended up going with a 12 which fits perfect. I originally thought of getting 13s but I knew they would be too sloppy all around based on other reviews I read from my big footed brothers on the web.

      When you're trying on shoes you just know what feels right so go with that not what you can cram your foot into for the sake of sizing down and hoping it will stretch.

      I marked them true to size because boots/dress shoes are our true shoe sizes while sneakers are cut "smaller" making sizing larger because of thick insoles; padding;cushioning that makes them comfortable for sport.

      These are great looking Boots that will break and wear nicely. Very versatile color. I swapped out the factory laces with longer flat waxed dark gray laces for some pop. I would say they fit comfortable out of the box. i wore them for 7hours after getting them in the mail and they felt so good with thick wool socks on.

      Received lots of comments on them.

      Excellent boots!!!

      Iron Rangers were my first pair of boots from the Red Wing Heritage line and will definitely not be the last. Iron Rangers are just one of those boots you can pick out in a crowd. If you know anyone who owns a pair of Red Wing's odds are you also know they don't just own one. This is a classic upper with a new updated sole, and the grip sole is a great update.

      On days you wear this boot be prepared to get called out. I have had mine since early Fall and have yet to have a day where some one does not compliment them. They are also a great conversation piece for those footwear fanatics.

      The reason I selected Iron Rangers as my first pair of Red Wings was for the leather. I had a few different styles in mind, but the Rangers have a great leather that breaks in rather quickly for boots in this category. Mine felt pretty snug from the first time I put them on, but as they have broken in they have exceeded expectations. I felt like the boot was fully broke in by day 5, which is faster than some friends who's took significantly longer. Each day I wear them they get more and more comfortable so I'm looking forward to wearing them for years.

      Needless to say I am in love with these boots, and would like to have them in another color to continue to grow my boot collection.

      I selected "true to size" because as lifestyle/full leather boots run, they are true to size (meaning 1/2 to 1 full size below your regular shoe size) I would recommend ordering a full size down from your normal shoe size, as the boot will pack out on the sides once it fully starts to break in. Just make sure your toes are not touching the front of the boot.

      My breakdown for sizing is below.
      Red Wing Boots = 11
      Nike/Adidas = 12
      UK brands with welted boots I wear a size 11.
