Why We Like The Iron Ranger 6in Boot

The Iron Ranger Boots have been protecting the feet of miners for more than a century, so we feel good about them protecting ours, too. Oil-tanned leather comprises the upper for added protection, while the leather insole conforms to our foot's natural shape to become more comfortable over time. A steel shank increases both stability and support for long stretches on our feet, and Vibram's 430 mini-lug sole won't crack and lose durability after a few years like all-rubber soles sometimes do.

Comfortable out of the box.

Just got mine in size 8. Generally we’re 7.5 or 8. Easy break in so far. I can tell it’s a quality, well made boot. Easily will outwear several bargain boots by the looks of it. Too bad I always felt it was too much. It’s probably less expensive in the long run. I highly recommend it!

Great Boots!

Really good hardworking boots. Got these to wear in rotation with my moc-toes, love the Hawthorne Rough-out leather. Wears in really well and break in period is next to none. Will need to get some insoles now though, seams the leather has broken in but I need a bit of lift to snug up the fit. My only dislike about the boot would be the sole. I do like the Vibram 430 Mini lug but it seems that the soles are just a bit to short for the size of the boot in terms of length. There is a noticeable click when I move from midfoot to toe. I am going to resole them anyways with another Vibram sole but thought I'd put that out there.

Speed hooks will ruin this boot

I bought these in October of 23. I have about 8 months of light use in them. I really like these boots but the speed hook eyelets are tearing up the tongue and laces. I have to get new speed hooks before wearing them any further. Pros: Easy break in Comfortable Good leather Sturdy boot Cons: Eyelets are sharp and will dig in and cut the leather. Redwing, I love your boots and will keep buying, please fix this issue on future boots.

Misplaced loose speed lace rivets

Quality boots except for the upper three speed lace rivets. They are not completely pressed making the back very sharp and rough and loose enough to easily turn by hand. Also one of the lace clips was misplaced too close to the edge and looks out of place. I expected better of Redwing.

Best boots ever!

I've used it several times
Size Bought:

I love these boots. Leather is stiff but I can tell they will last a long time. I recommend trying them on at a Redwing store first to find the right size. They run large. I’m normally a size 12 but got a size 11 in these.

I love my Muleskinners!

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Size Bought:
5' 8"

I have a pair of IR's in Copper Rough and Tough, which are seconds from another site, that are awesome boots, and been wearing them for about 4 years off and on, but at 10 1/2 are just a little big, so when I set my sights on the Muleskinners I went down to 10 and these boots fit great! I can't wait to break them in, very happy with my boots, and I want to say that I have never had an order show up so quickly from an online retailer. I ordered these boots on a Tuesday evening (thanks for the 20% off!) and two days later I am wearing them! The smell of the leather is fantastic, just look and feel awesome, and will be ordering again!

Horrible quality control

Second pair I've had to send back. Jodi1117 inspector is who approved these lol last time it took 14 pairs befthey got me a pair worth even keeping and even those the sole is all wavy. I ordered 1 more pair if they are no good I'm done with this company after over 25 years and I will go with Nicks. Sad to see american companies get like this.

It is the break-in tho...

Just keep in mind these boots weigh over 5lbs and are just broken in after 3 months. Outside that they are tanks, look great, and are the real deal quality wise.
