    These are not good on ice. Be careful, fellow Northerners.

    Slim/Skinny looks like the way to go for these slimmer/narrow boots.




    Those boots lookin good

    Hey guys, here to definitively say- GO A WHOLE SIZE DOWN. Fit like a fucking glove- right out of the box. Whenever I'm out with these bad boys its like my feet are having sex. Makes conversation slightly more difficult because of the consistent moaning- but totally worth it.

    that's still way too skinny imo. Since your legs are really skinny you should wear slim straights or something otherwise it looks out of proportion

    I've been wearing my Iron Rangers for a week now. They stretched just enough in terms of width, however, i still experience minor pain where the boot bends. The bend is somewhere between the laces and the cap stitching. Is there any chance that they will eventually break in? Or does it mean that I got the wrong size (I doubt that, because 1/2 size larger was too roomy and the heels slipped like in a... well, like in a slipper).

    Also, how is one supposed to tie this kind of boot? tight all the way up? Tight in the lower part and looser in the upper part, or vice versa?

    On the other subject: have you seen this on the Red Wing 1905 blog?

    Basically, Iron Rangers sans speed hooks plus perforated wing tipped cap. A take on Wolverine's Addison territory?

    ^ I went a half size down, a bit roomy in the toes, but no slipping in the back. Been wearing them a lot for about two weeks. I had the same foot pain where the boot bends at the start, but it seems a lot better already. I'd say just suffer through it and hope for the best.

    Hello everyone. I'm new here but wanted to post that I just picked up the Iron Ranger boots today and they're a great fit. I normally wear 10-10.5 depending on the shoe but got a 9.5. It's really a perfect fit like if these boots were designed around my feet. Already contemplating picking up a second pair in the amber since the pair I got today was black.

    I'm not feeling those at all. I like the Iron Ranger but I don't think it's a boot that works with a wingtip style. The front looks like it should be on a more elegant boot (GT might have been a better fit imo)

    I think they look quite elegant. I wonder why they perforated only the toe cap, and not side seams and heel pocket.
