Style no. 8083 : Iron Ranger Hawthorne Muleskinner
The rugged 6-inch 8083 Iron Ranger features premium Hawthorne Muleskinner leather, chrome hardware, speed hooks, Goodyear welt construction, triple stitched quality, plus a durable Vibram® 430 Mini-lug sole for grip while maintaining the classic Iron Ranger construction and silhouette.
The Hawthorne Muleskinner leather is a roughout, or flesh-out, leather, not a suede. This means the leather is still full-grain, naturally weather resistant and incredibly durable, but the smooth side of the leather is turned to the inside of the boot giving it a rougher appearance, that ages well and is easy to care for.
The early history of iron mining on Minnesota’s Mesabi Range is intertwined with that of Red Wing Shoe Company. The miners needed tough but comfortable boots that could stand up to the long days and tough conditions a northern Minnesota mine pit presented. Red Wing responded with a boot made of thick leather with an oil resisting outer sole, speed lacing hooks, and a comfortable cork midsole. The defining characteristic of these boots though, was their double layered toe, capped to protect the miner’s feet from injury as they labored with hand tools and heavy machinery. That boot is still made today, the fittingly named Iron Ranger, and it represents not only Red Wing’s commitment to making boots for working men and women but also its Minnesota origins.

Love & Care
Protect your investment
Red Wing Shoes’ sturdy soles, premium leathers, triple stitching and Goodyear welt construction all work together to make quality boots that will last a lifetime. It takes more than 230 steps to handcraft each pair of Red Wing Shoes but it only takes three steps to keep them clean, conditioned and protected.
For roughout leathers like Muleskinner, we recommend using Red Wing's Roughout/Nubuck Cleaner Kit. Lightly rub the edge of the cleaner bar over the soiled area, like an eraser. For deep stains and marks, apply more pressure. If the stain or dirt still remains, wet both the Suede Bar and the stain with clean water and repeat rubbing action. Let dry, then use the cleaner bar to remove water spots. Brush up nap with stiff bristle brush.
For everyday cleaning of stains on roughout or suede, use Saphir's crepe brush for easy and effective cleaning.
Cleaning salt stains: For salt stained leather, we recommend using Saphir's Winter Stain Remover. And afterwards protecting your shoes with Saphir's Super Invulner Spray to protect them from further stains.
For Muleskinner leather, you can choose to just protect the leather with a high quality spray, as it doesn't need much conditioning. But when you've worn your boots for a long time, and you feel they might need some conditioning, you can apply Mink Oil. A little goes a long way.
Add extra protection to preserve your footwear. Red Wing Leather Protector or Saphir's Super Invulner spray provides an invisible shield from water, dirt, oil and mud.
A new pair of Red Wing Heritage Boots should fit comfortably tight on your foot, with enough room to freely wiggle your toes, and enough room for a thick sock. Over time the full grain leather upper, leather footboard and cork midsole mold to your feet, creating an enduring and customized fit over time with each wear.
The 8083 is built using the No. 8 Last:
– Features a bump toe for more room up-front
– Fits a variety of foot shapes
– Should be sized up 1/2 if used with a footbed or orthotic
