Red Wing Iron Ranger Boots - what's the dilly yo? - Page 42

post #616 of 704

It occurred to me that people interested in the iron rangers might want to know what they look like before/after applying the Obenauf's oil followed by the protectant. Below is a picture of two (2) right boots. One untreated out of the box (left) and one with the Obenauf's leather oil & LP applied (right:)

 

 

 

The one on the right was treated with the Obenauf's leather oil and LP. Worn ~20-30 times, light wear.

 

The boot on the left is the new one, untreated right out of the box.

 

(The reason I have two pairs: a month ago I bought 10Ds, too big, and bought 9.5's which I think aren't snug but I'll stick with since I ain't moving back-to-front no more. I'm selling the 10Ds.)

 

Hopefully the picture gives you some idea what to expect. Certainly it's not enough contrast to discourage or surprise me, though, leather lightens. This is really splitting hairs IMHO.

Hi

 

just one question

 

I want to buy the Danner Mountain light Mckenzie but a litte bit concerned about the size. I have red wing iron rangers and beckmans in size 10,5 and wolverine 1k mile in the same size. Do you think I should go for the same size for the danner mountain light?

 

Thanks

Pete

I would say yes. I wear 10 in Beckmans and I have the Mtn Light Lownsdale (1st Danner/Tanner collab) in 10. FYI, the Danners will fit 100% better w/ a Superfoot insole (or something similar). They don't really come w/ an insole/sock liner, and the little plastic heel counter insert they include is basically worthless.

When looking through this thread to decide on the black, I noticed two posts with pictures, one by AndrewDoesHair, and by bargerhm.  The side edges of the outsoles look different for each of these, Andrew's looks more rubberish while bargerhm's looks almost like wood.  Was there a change in the construction of the Iron Ranger or is this something that was done with a product or developed overtime?  Thanks very much.

For those interested, I just heard back from Red Wing about resoling my iron rangers to a leather midsole and commando sole (same as the Beckman), and they said it's both possible andonly  $95.  That's quite a bit cheaper than B. Nelson would be.  I'm mighty tempted to do it with the winter months coming up.

I'm a 9 in Beckmans and an 8.5 in IRs.  I assumed I'd be the same, but when I laced up the IRs  in a 9, I couldn't even get the boot tight around my foot.  Surprised the hell outta me.

Planning to grab me a pair of these but worried about the size, I'm thinking of 10D or 9.5D
My Asic kayano 18's are at 10.5D

My measurements are at 10.5" and 4", anyone with similar measurements mind giving me some tips?

Do Clarks Desert Boots and Iron Rangers fit the same? I'm a 9.5 in Clarks Desert Boots ... wondering if I should get the same size in IR's.

Hi everyone.

I've just got my new RW 81111 and I'm wondering is that a defective shoe, or some sort of "unique hand made feature"? :)

The clicker must've been hungry!! Only a defect aesthetically. If you can live with it, keep em. If it'll bug you (it would me) send em back
post #630 of 704

Well, it bugs me a bit, cuz I think shoes like RW should not have defects like that. However sending them back will cost me alot (since they came from US and I'm in Russia). I hope this can be fixed (or at least minimized) by a good shoe service.
