STYLE NO. 8113 : IRON RANGER
The 8113 is a rugged 6-Inch boot, featuring premium Hawthorne Muleskinner leather, chrome hardware, speed hooks, Goodyear welt construction and triple stitched quality. Its double layer leather toe cap, leather heel pocket and Cork outsole make it a favorite.
THE HISTORY BEHIND THE STYLE
The local residents of the Mesabi Iron Range in northern Minnesota are proudly known as Iron Rangers due to their rugged toughness. The Iron Ranger work boots were built for iron miners in this region who required a double layer of leather over the toe for extra safety. It’s tough and elegant all at once.
