There is only >one< Iron Ranger Hawthrone Model. Photography is all about light, different Monitors give their extra. Just compare all the different Clark Desert Boots colors out there. I bet black is the only true-to-photo color, but still this is not true either.

The eyelets look black not silver.

I think the JCrew versions also had such different eyelets.

I'd much rather go speedhooks on a work-wear boot like that.

 

My one complaint with the Beckman's is the use of all eyelets. Even with the laces fairly loose, the vamp seems tighter to me than on Wolverine's, and, consequently, it is very difficult for me to get my Beckman's on and off without practically relacing them each time. I have a thick (tall) foot, so maybe it's just a personal issue; just wish there were speedhooks, but many people prefer the dressier eyelets, especially if wearing with trousers not jeans.

I have the same with my GT/Beckmans and also need to take the laces out of the top eyelets. But I do it automatically now and pretty fast, so I'm not annoyed by it anymore. I was a bit in the beginning, though.

any idea which colorway of the 3141s is worn in this picture?

 

 

Looks lighter than the ones I've seen at my local stockist but that might just be the lighting in the pic

Either Copper Rough & Tough or the Oro-Iginal. Likely the latter.

Which ones are the best, Beckman or 1000 mile boots ? I can have the 1000 mile boots for 260€ and the Beckman for 200€. Also I prefere the rubber sole to the leather one.

Also I'd like to know what's the sizing chart for the 9016... and if any websites are shipping these worldwide. I'm in Europe and they are freaking expensive here (300€ at best on most websites, 400€ on many others), it's frustrating that you can find them at 250€ on many US websites that refuse to ship them worldwide.

Revolve stocks red wings for $330 US with free worldwide shipping.

Also new customers can get 30% off their first purchase (excludes wolverines but not red wings), all you have to do is e-mail them after your purchase asking for the new customer discount and they'll refund the 30%.

Don't think Red Wing has any chukka model with Copper Rough & Tough (there maybe one off limited run with some retailer though) If they make such model I'll definitely get a pair.

Hey!

 

New user here.

 

I recently bought a pair of Red Wing Iron Ranger boots (in Amber Harness). I treated them with snoseal using Crane's method, heating with a hair dryer, etc.

 

After the snoseal was as absorbed as it was going to get, I buffed them with a cloth and a RW horsehair brush, and let them sit.

 

Taking my boots out for a walk today, I noticed a bit of snoseal got "caked" where the leather bends on top of the foot just in front of the toe cap. It just looks like dry snoseal and isn't much of an issue. Does this mean I've applied too much? That I haven't let it seep in for long enough? That I didn't buff them properly/for long enough?

 

The leather is, for lack of a better word, waxy to the touch (but not sticky). Dust seems to enjoy sticking to it, while water just beads.

 

Is there anything I can do to make them less waxy (mostly because of the dust)?

Hi,

 

I have a question regarding stains on the Hawthore Muleskinner Roughout leather.

I kickstarted my motorbike and from the black rubber on the foot rest I got ugly black streaks on the tip of my boots.

I've treated the boots with Obenaufs two times before.

I tried quickly to rub it out with water, but this didn't help at all.

Any recommendations on what to do?

wear that shit with pride. and next time don't treat the roughout leather. just wear that shit and beat it to hell. if you wanted dress boots you should have bought them instead.
