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.
Roughout leather is created using a reverse-suede technique at Red Wing’s very own S.B. Foot Tanning Co. While most tanneries split, thin and weaken the hide to create the rough suede surface, they simply use the other side of the hide. By doing so, they avoid splitting or thinning their full-grain hides. This makes Red Wing Roughout leather just as strong and durable as our other leathers.
