Red Wing 8111 Iron Ranger
The Red Wing 8111. Sturdy and Indestructible.
For this archetypal solid working boot mining provided the impetus for the 8111 model and nothing has been changed in material, shape, process or finish for over 90 years. An oil-tanning process makes the leather water-resistant and supple, while it loses nothing in strength and toughness. The boot which is just as good for long walks comes with extra leather reinforcement on heel and toe, and practical quick-lace top hooks.
Red Wing Shoe Company. Oil-Tanned and Goodyear Welted.
Work boots and shoes that are famed for their comfort and durability have been made in Red Wing, Minnesota since 1905. The full-grain cow hide used to make Red Wings are treated according to a special technique that was developed at the end of the 1940s and patented for Red Wing: The company purchases hides that have been pre-processed with chromium salts and then tans them using mineral oil, hence the term "oil-tanned". This gives the leather an oil content of 22% (8 to 10% is normal), which makes it exceptionally flexible, hard-wearing and water-repellent despite its thickness. The quality of the workmanship corresponds to the high quality of the leather. Red Wing shoes are mechanically welted using the complex Goodyear welt technique.
