Lets Talk Comfort…

The design of the Red Wing Heritage Iron Ranger is one that is intended to produce a high quality boot that will be very durable while maintaining a very high standard of comfort to its occupants. This work boot will come to the rescue for those hard days of the week and then and only then you will understand the true value of comfort under working conditions.

The idea of each boot size with three different variants each with different width fittings is truly remarkable. This is to assist users to obtain just the right fit. Red Wing is known for their specialty in comfort and top quality shoes, with Red Wing you are guaranteed the best, a company policy

Like many other work boots the Iron Ranger requires some time to adjust to the shape of the feet. As the moment the midsole and leather sole begins to wear that is the moment when the boots are most comfortable.


For non-boot guys, they are not comfortable at all. If you are used to wearing sneakers, running shoes, gym shoes and other shoes like that, you are not going to find them comfortable.

If you wear tennis shoes or basketball shoes, and you decide to wear boots all of a sudden, your whole life is going to be miserable if you start to wear them every single day.

How long to break in red wing boots?

If you want to start wearing boots like this, take it slow. Buy the Iron Ranger. Put in on for a day, take it off for two days. Repeat this process until you feel comfortable. Break it slowly.

With all those hard materials to contend with, you really need to push on this thing. You are going to have to walk around. You need to compress all those materials into the shape of your foot.


Let’s talk safety…

The Red Wing Heritage Iron Ranger is intended for work environments such as works required in and outside the household rather than heavy construction or industrial use. It can be used but it is not recommended and the user should do so at their own risk. On the other hand, these boots are known for their support as they are 6” high which is advantageous for your ankles when working on rough terrain. The sole is oil resistant which provides extra grip when working on wet slippery ground surfaces. Furthermore, the water resistant leather material along with the slip resistant sole collectively provides safe movement in snow weather conditions or any water based work environments.

It is safe to say that these boots will offer its occupants optimal protection assuming that they are not subjected to highly hazardous work environments. It is however recommended that if users are required to work in environments with imminent dangers, for instance in the logging industry, a different work boot type should be considered. Construction typed work boots are more suitable in such circumstances.



Not much to talk about. These laces are replaceable. Most people would just replace them with leather laces. Speaking of laces, why not check out our boot laces buyer’s guide and pick the right one that goes along with the Red Wing Iron Ranger #8085.

The silver eyelid with the contrasting stitch of the white in the triple stitch pattern looks beautiful. It matches the welt and the overall construction of the boot.


When you compare them with a pair of logger boots or dual density boots, these Iron Rangers are really not that heavy. Which also makes it the perfect choice for new boot peoples.


Expensive! What did you expect? With all these premium quality stuff you’ll be getting a lot of service time out of these boots.
