Changing the inside sole means tearing the boot apart, changing the leather insole, and build it back (obviously adding new soles). It'n not impossible, but I'm wondering if RW do it. If they are headed for a resole to a RW factory, you could ask them if they can do this kind of job. I know some cobblers in Europe do it, (like this one in the Netherlands: http://www.wijsmanschoenherstellers.nl/en/red-wing-repair), not sure if it's that simple or common. Or you can try to...
Can you add some pics? That would help.
Completely agree. I have both RW moc toes and IRs in the same size and, even if I have a very slim feet, I feel I could have gone down an additional half size in IRs.
Hi everyone, some follow-up to the iron rangers inconsistencies I encountered: I wrote to RW europe, and they found the shoes to be defective, at the level of factory seconds; the heel ripping got worst after two more wears, so I took the shoes back to where I bought them and had them exchanged.  The pair I received is simply perfect: no thread fraying, no heel ripping, perfect stitching. Also the fit is better (the previous pair I got was in my usual RW size, but idk why...
Thanks for the answers, that might be the case, but honestly, it's not something you expect for a pair of 350$ boots just worn twice… I'm quite disappointed with the quality, having owned several pairs of RW this is the first time I have something to complain about. I've sent an email to the EU division, waiting for a reply from them. 
Thanks for the advice!Unfortunately, by closely inspecting the boots I've found several defects in them.1- In both shoes, the Goodyear welt doesn't cover the end of the leather stitches properly. You can clearly see the leather stitch folding freely without the welt.2- Another issue are the heels: one in slightly off-center, the other doesn't seem to be properly attached, in fact you can see there's some space between the rubber heel and the body of the shoe.3- Lastly, the...
Hi everyone! Got a brand new pair of iron rangers in charcoal 8116. Question is: how to properly condition them without darkening the leather? Also if anyone has them, how is the leather aging? Thanks!
Looks authentic to me… But to be 100% sure you should see the inside tag on the tongue
Thanks! Too bad I'm based in Europe, I don't think the market here is that hot. I will try my best.Thank again.
Thank you both. In case anyone interested, pm me. Thanks!
