Today was all about the nicely worn Iron Rangers. Got them re-soled and new eyelets last spring. Had the copper ones done too.

Where did you get them done? Dave Page?

Red Wing stores will send them back to the factory. I think it was about $65 for soles, laces, & eyelets.

To do it again I’d specify the mini-Vibram sole like my dark grey IR’s have. These and my copper ones have the smooth sole.

Can you spec a non-original replacement sole when you send these to RW directly?

The IR’s are now available with either the plain sole or the mini-Vibram, so you can request either.

I don’t know if this would have helped your situation, but how much did you oil the leather before wearing? I bought a pair of Keen “Austin” that start off with really stiff leather upper. Oiled them three times. They were still stiff after second treatment, but became acceptably pliable after the third. I use Obenauf’s Leather Oil.

To be clear, the IR’s in photo are wonderful, it’s the new 1907’s that are breaking in. I just had the Red Wing guy oil them up once before purchase. I’ve worn them maybe four separate days now, so I expect it to take a while. I may pick up some Obenauf’s and give them a couple coats. Thanks

Breaking in a new pair of Helm's while I'm in the office. Very comfy even though they are new.

Almost pulled the trigger on these a few times. Would love to get your feedback after you had them for a few weeks. What price did you get them for?
