Now that you're a full-fledged adult and your feet have officially finished growing, it's time to invest in some footwear that's designed to last longer than a single football season. And when it comes to boots, it doesn't get much better than the tough-as-nails, ruggedly cool offerings from Red Wing. The Minnesota-based company has been making some of the country's best shoes for over a hundred years, and their lineup has only gotten better with time.
The Iron Ranger uses buttery soft and ultra durable leather from S.B. Foot Tanning Co, a storied Minnesota tannery, and packs a double-layer leather toe cap, leather heel pocket, and nitrile cork outsole. The name comes from the Mesabi Iron Range in northern Minnesota, where the local residents use work boots fit for their daily iron mining needs. The double layer of leather comes in handy for their line of work, but also just plain looks good for your daily commute. Built to last and look good doing it, the Iron Rangers are an investment that'll pay dividends with a future full of stable comfort and tough attitude.
