Red Wing have a habit of making some of the most iconic and desirable boots you’ll find anywhere, this is their “Iron Ranger” boot and it’s directly based on the boots worn by iron miners in the latter part of the 18th century.
The Iron Ranger is made from double layer leather, it has a toe cap, leather heel pocket and a Nitrile cork sole. The leather is premium Amber Harness leather and the boot is triple/quadruple stitched for strength and longevity.
