This lightweight, comfortable and tough Iron Ranger is built specifically for women. Features include Goodyear welt construction, a Vibram 430 Mini-lug sole for added traction and premium, Red Wing Amber Harness leather.
The early history of iron mining on Minnesota’s Mesabi Range is intertwined with that of Red Wing Shoe Company. The miners needed tough but comfortable boots that could stand up to the long days and tough conditions a northern Minnesota mine pit presented. Red Wing responded with a boot made of thick leather with an oil resisting outer sole, speed lacing hooks, and a comfortable cork midsole.
The defining characteristic of these boots though, was their double layered toe, capped to protect the miner’s feet from injury as they labored with hand tools and heavy machinery. That boot is still made today, and fittingly named Iron Ranger.
