Red Wing Iron Ranger Boots - what's the dilly yo? - Page 24

I want to see if they'll put a leather commando sole a la the gentleman's traveler onto an iron ranger. I'll let everyone know what they say.

That would make it looks like the Beckman Moe-Toe in Chestnut used to available on JCrew

Sizing question here:

 

I had a pair of Iron Rangers in size 7.5 EE (Extra Wide), which I eventually ended up selling because they were a tad too big. I had heel slip even with thicker socks. 

 

Now that I'm looking for a new pair, should I go with a 7.0 EE or 7.0 D?

 

For reference, I'm measured at 8.0 D with dress socks on, and I wear 8.0 D in dress shoes.

Thanks, Tsekh, I actually found a photo from somebody who resoled an 875 with an Iron Ranger. It looked ok, but I'm not sure if it's quite what I pictured...maybe I'll take them to a cobbler when the time comes and see what we can come up with. You're right, though, Red Wing responds super fast! I hit them up on Twitter, and they replied the next day.

Just a heads up.. Nordstrom has the Iron Ranger in Hawthorne Muleskinner Leather on sale for $180. 

Only in 'D' widths though.. ffffuuuu.gif

Hawthorne is the way to go in IR. Mine look fantastic and if I want leather I just put on my GTs or 1000 miles.

I've been wearing my IRs for a couple months or so and have noticed that the outer heels are wearing out much faster than the rest of the outsole. Any ideas as to what I can do to prevent this?

^ Probably just your walking pattern...I wouldnt worry to much about it but I guess you could topy it.

can anyone clarify a question for me? if you look at the Amazon product page for Iron Rangers there is a Amber and Amber Harness color, listed as two different colors, but only Amber Harness/Black Narness/Hawthorne Muleskinner on the actual redwingshoes site. but the Amazon pictures show the amber color to be that reddish brown flat color, and the Amber Harness to have some more texture and uneveness to the color that makes it seem a bit more stylish, which I much prefer. meanwhile i was looking at an auction where the seller shows a picture of a darker brown color, assuring me that it is amber harness while the brown doesn't look as reddish as amber and definitely is a flat color, making me think this is an entirely different color. Is there only one Amber a.k.a Amber Harness color? or are there at least these 2 variations?

^^ it's the same, though the color varies from boot to boot

I just received my new pair of IRs that I got from eBay.

I noticed that when the boots are on a flat surface, the points of contact is at the front edge of the heel, and only on one part of the front of the foot. Regarding the front part, it seems like the sole isn't perfectly flat, but rather rounded.

Is this normal and will it go away after breaking them in? Or are these defective?

Mine are the same.  Probably normal.

Quick question here - I'm trying to decide between the IR amber harness in a size 9 and the copper rough & tough in an 8.5. Having never worn IR's before, I'm not too sure what to go with, and since I'm out in the boonies, theres nowhere to try 'em on. I usually wear a 9.5 (Vans), and some people say size down .5 and others say size down 1. I'd say I have fairly average to medium width feet. Suggestions?

If in doubt order from someone you can easily do a return if needed.

 

I would go down a 1/2 size.
