Red Wing Iron Ranger Boots - what's the dilly yo? - Page 41

post #601 of 789

 I recently purchased a pair of copper Red Wing Iron Rangers. After a few weeks of regular wear there are some noticeable marks on the boots. I purchased a bottle of Leather Honey Leather Conditioner and a tin of Red Wing mink oil, but have no idea what I'm doing, and am fearful of ruining my first pair of nice boots. My goals is to mitigate any damage/bruising already done, and prevent future water damage. Am I able to accomplish this with the aforementioned

 

 products? If so, how should I go about applying the mink oil and/or conditioner? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

What kind of marks are you talking about? That sounds like you should leave it alone IMO.

they should fit in width and length?

 

they won't stretch much width wise, if at all.  expect the sole to be hard for a couple days, but after that, they are what they are.  if they're too narrow for you, then they might not be for you.

Get a little jar of Obenaufs leather oil, dab a very small abount and rub it on the scuffed areas with your finger tips, and then use a horse hair brush

Iron Rangers look best beat up anyway.

Hi guys,

 

So I really want to get these boots, but live outside of the US - no Red Wing here.

However I do have an option to use a mail forwarding service which will get the boots to my door, only that i'm not too sure about the sizing and sending these back and then having them reshipped will be costly.

I usually wear an 11D on Nike trainers... sometimes 11.5 as I believe I have a little wider foot (nothing extreme though)

I was thinking of getting the 8111 size 10D... will this work? should I go for the EE?

EE would be huge. You should be Ok with 10D

Thanks, I guess I'll just go for it and hope for the best. I have a pair of Timberlands in 9.5 which run a little big... not wearing them much because of that.

BTW does anyone know how the 30% ar Revolve work? Should I just mail them asking for a coupon?

+1 on the 10D they'll certainly not be too small, worse case a wee bit big!

Edit, if the Tims are too big I'd go even smaller, IME the IRs run bigger than timberland

Well the timbs are 9.5 WIDE, which I think is why the fit is off. 

Do you think I should go for 9.5D with the rangers? I read reports hear about people saying the toe box is way to tight after sizing down 1.5 size...

No I'd stick with the 10D

I just got my first pair of iron rangers last month, I got the rough-and-tough copper color. I'm actually selling my 10Ds after wearing them ~30 times because they run just a bit large (something I'd have avoided if I'd read this thread completely first.) I wore my steel toe redwing work boots for a few years, loved them, but knew they just weren't quite nice enough to wear as "nice casual." The iron rangers are perfect for this. 

 

I just got my 9.5's, I think they're going to work out well. I wish they made these in a B-width, but I'll take what I can get. Below is a picture of the 10Ds, worn 30 times, and for color reference note that these have been treated first with the leather oil and then the protectant (both Obenauf's.) The 9.5's I just got are much lighter out of the box.

 

 

 

+ vote to the person who said these look best beat up. The leather wears naturally, it's unique. Find me a left and right whose leather matches. Mine are totally different but they still somehow match. With time, shoes weather and get a look to them that has a history.

 

If uniform is what you want you might like the Amber Harness better than the Rough-and-Tough Copper, there's something for every preference I'm sure.
