The Brooklyn Circus x Red Wing Heritage Iron Ranger Looks

The Brooklyn Circus x Red Wing Heritage Iron Ranger Looks

The Brooklyn Circus has teamed up with Red Wing Heritage to shed some light on one of the bootmaker’s most iconic designs – the Iron Ranger. Iron Ranger boots were built with a double layer of leather over the toe to provide miners in Minnesota’s Mesabi Iron Range with an extra measure of safety. The heel pocket, a boot feature designed to provide extra support, was moved to the outside of the boot. This design eliminated a seam and provided a smooth and comfortable one-piece surface on the inside of the boot. It was a solid blend of design and function, hence the reason the boot’s so popular to this day. The BkC and Red Wing cooked up these styled looks featuring Red Wing Heritage styles 8111, 8113, and 8114. More looks below.
