- Order number: 8083-HawthroneMuleskinne.9.5
The Iron Ranger - Red Wing's classic is one of the most popular models. It is classically timeless and can really be worn with any trouser style. Despite its popularity, a new edition of the Iron Ranger was released in 2017, with the majority of models now using the Vibram 430 instead of the Nitrile Cork sole. The Vibram 430 sole has a tread pattern that gives the shoe significantly better grip in difficult terrain.
The new 8083 Iron Ranger is part of this series (formerly 8113). The beige Hawthorne Muleskinner suede leather from the company's own S.B. Foot tannery impresses with its velour look, which is created by turning the piece of leather, also called rough out. The name can be traced back to the inhabitants of the Mesabi Iron Range in northern Minnesota. Already many decades ago the miners needed a shoe that could withstand the most adverse circumstances. Even then, the inhabitants of the Iron Range appreciated this shoe because it was the perfect candidate due to its extra reinforced toe cap and perfected heel construction.

A small spot, in the bend of the Mississippi, is inhabited until 1857 by the Indian tribe Lutasha. The Lutasha chief lends his name to the village: Red Wing. The young German, Charles Beckmann, worked in a tannery, but soon he was to create great things. Driven by his passion for craftsmanship with leather, he founded the Red Wing Shoe Company in 1905. His idea: hard-wearing, robust, durable boots for the workers of the up-and-coming industry of the 1930s. The number 650, the 16-inch shoe for trackmen, a high calfskin boot, was created and is still included in the product line today. Also the designs for the numbers 2268 and 915, the engineering boot and the boat for oil workers originate from this time. Quality proves itself. In the 1950s, the Irish Setter was introduced, a style that became an integral part of American workwear. And the legendary number 888, the 'Super Setter', unites the highest quality materials from all over the world: under leather from Australia, upper leather from Scotland, shoe flaps from England, shoelaces from Germany, Norwegian waterproof seams and Swiss soles. Anyone who has ever been to the Red Wing factory understands why these boots are not just boots, but a piece of the identity of their wearer. This shoe is made to stay - "built to fit, built to last". Because in the more than 200 stations at Red Wing, every movement is carried out with the greatest precision. The employees, who sew by hand after old school and check every centimeter of the leather from their own tannery, put so much passion into each individual boot that you can feel it when wearing it. Highest wearing comfort is guaranteed by an optimal fit. Red Wing has created a product through consistency and commitment to meet the needs of its customers that has evolved over 100 years from work shoes to the favourite footwear of many people around the world.
All Red Wings are already treated. Please proceed as follows:
1. Remove superficial dirt with a damp cotton cloth or shoe brush.
2. For economical application and treatment, we recommend Mink Oil. It is recommended to use the Red Wing shoe brush.
3. Let your boots rest and dry for a few hours so that the treatment is absorbed.
4. We recommend sealing the leather with our leather protector.
5. You can also polish your shoes with our polishing cloth.
Especially in the unpleasant winter months we recommend to treat the boots beforehand to protect the leather from snow, dirt and road salt.
