Red Wing Work Boots

I had been wearing the crepe sole moc toe work boots for some time and could not resist the vintage look of the 1911 Beckman Gentleman Travelers in Black Cherry when they were issued a few years back. I have since narrowed it down to the Iron Ranger 8111 for my daily work boots with the Beckman Gentleman Travelers seeing some light work & weekend use. The Moc Toe 875 also still see some sporadic use.

Some of my Red Wing boots worn over the past 5 odd years.

  13. Boots are one of the staple footwear pieces for many Fall and Winter collections. Some shoppers, however, remain doubtful about investing in a pair. Whether it be because you have never left the comfort of your tennis shoes or flip flops, or that you simply adore sandals, head down to your local department store and try on a pair.I find this website for Work Boots Review. You can visit this site.

  14. The Iron Rangers appear to be a classic pair of Munson Last boots. Those went into Army service in 1912 and have remained virtually unaltered to the present day in terms of the several manufacturers that still offer them for civilian use.

  15. How are the Iron Ranger for every day work? Do the soles wear well for every day work? How are they on your back after 8 hrs? I always loved the vintage boot look.

    I've been using their lesser Irish Setter brand with the crepe sole but after 1 year they need new soles. Cost to resole is about 75% of the new boot cost. Tried the Irish Setter "Farmington" but for some reason, even after break in the cut into my ankles causing hot spots.

    I get a credit for some new Red Wings with my new position with the state and was looking at the 953 because I thought the soles would have more support than the "Iron Ranger" but I really want the Iron Rangers but not sure they'd hold up for what I am going to put them through and if they have enough impact support for my back.

    I have a pair of 1911 Beckmans but I use those for going out in the winter. Not work.

    So let me know if the Iron Rangers would hold out as well as my back with daily abuse. Thanks

  16. Red Wing Work Boots like to use a lot of labour workers. Some companies allow the worker due to the quality of the boots. My friend when view website then like to suggest different posts due to unique content.
