The rugged 6-inch 8083 Iron Ranger features premium Hawthorne Muleskinner leather, chrome hardware, speed hooks, Goodyear welt construction, triple stitched quality, plus a durable Vibram® 430 Mini-lug sole for grip while maintaining the classic Iron Ranger construction and silhouette.
The Hawthorne Muleskinner roughout leather is created using a reverse-suede technique at our very own S.B. Foot Tanning Co. While most tanneries split, thin and weaken the hide to create the rough suede surface, we simply use the other side of the hide. By doing so, we avoid splitting or thinning our full-grain hides. This makes our Roughout leather just as strong and durable as our other leathers.
A new pair of Red Wing Heritage boots should fit tight on your foot, with enough room to freely wiggle your toes.Sizing Recommendation Most customers size down 1/2 to 1 full size. Call us if you are unsecure. Draw your foot on a sheet of paper, measure the lengths in cm and call us or drop an email.
