The link is just a preview of whats available.

Previously, I found a pair of Iron Rangers for $50.

Worth a look if you're in the twin cities area.

u/MyronLatsBrah · 6 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Those are Iron Rangers I believe.

u/Emb3rSil · 6 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Easy basic recommendations:

$150: Thorogood Plain Toe

$160: Chippewa Apache

$220: Katahdin Ironworks Engineer

$250: Red Wing Iron Ranger

You go any cheaper than about $150 and they're gonna fall apart fast

You're going to want to avoid shoes with large, unnecessary branding like those Ralph Lauren ones.

Also, sneakers are next to useless when dealing with lots of rain and snow. You're going to want some boots. LL Bean Boots are a classic option and highly effective against lots of rain. A work boot like Red Wing Iron Rangers are also often recommended because they look nice, are very sturdy, and can be somewhat weatherproofed with sno-seal or an equivalent.

Basically, don't get those shoes. Get some boots with minimal branding. It's your best choice for the weather.

The Thursday’s Captain has a lug-sole which has quite good grip. That seems like you best move or find a sale on Redwing Iron Rangers .

I'm about to become a grad student, and I joined MFA wanting to up my style quotient accordingly. I've gradually become interested in style over the last few years, perhaps partially as an outlet for the visual sense I developed through art and graphic design as a kid (I've since gotten interested in music and writing instead as creative outlets). I can also see that some of my interest in style has come from feeling insecure at various times and wanting to control and shape the way others see me. I've also undergone several shifts in personal identity and outlook that have provoked me to dress differently over these few years.

Right now I'm getting ready for a year of studying abroad (a philosophy masters program in Belgium) and I've been using MFA to get a sense of the possibilities that there are for personal style. Some of this amounts to just being aware of various products and brands. I think I first got clued into Bonobos on here; per MFA's influence, I bought my first pair of Allen Edmonds recently (then resold them since they didn't fit); I purchased my first MTM shirt (which I recently posted to MFA asking about the fit of) through seeing what difference a good fit can make in photos people post to MFA. Right now, I'm trying to budget so that I can get both a pair of brown Red Wings and a pair of APC jeans before I leave for a year abroad so that I can wear them both pretty much every day. I think I may need to save for living expenses instead, though. One thing MFA has helped to teach me is how to plan a wardrobe in advance (know what kinds of pieces to be on the lookout for) and to not only get a good price, but also to get the right item at the right time.

If I were to receive the coupon, I'd like to think I could justify the expense of the Light Gray Three Piece Suit or the Classic Navy Blue Suit for job interviews and class presentations in the coming year. It'll be more practical, though, for me to get the Partner Pink Pinpoint Oxford and a silver tie clip as staples to work into and enhance the wardrobe I already have. Thanks for doing this awesome contest, veroz!

Tip— you can go on the 'offers' page and sort by 'lowest offer for each' (size and color).

Size 12s are even cheaper.

u/UnderwaterTelephone · 3 pointsr/findfashion

Those are Red Wing Iron Rangers. A common, less expensive alternative is the LL Bean Katahdin Engineering Boot.

u/Siegfried_Fuerst · 3 pointsr/malefashionadvice

If you're willing to step up your game a little to boots that are actually quality, there's Meermin, at $295 or Trickers at $350 with the 30% off deal flyer thing. Wolverine 1k's at $355 and Red Wing Iron Rangers at $250. In order of highest quality to low Trickers, Meermin, Wolverine, Red Wing.

You can for walks in the park, but I wouldn't recommend them for anything more than that.

Above is assuming these are it.

u/RenegadeDoppelganger · 3 pointsr/malefashionadvice
u/TheDukesMistress · 2 pointsr/weddingplanning
u/supernatural_skeptic · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

These aren't crazy marked down, but if you check online retailers and /r/frugalmalefashionadvice periodically you can get them for cheap eventually.

u/bentreflection · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

I used to buy a lot more stuff, but lately I've been trying to slim down to just a few, high-quality items. Of the things I own, here's a few that I really love:

  1. Iron Rangers you all know about these. I love cleaning and polishing them.

  2. Filson X Levi Oil Finish Trucker Breaks in awesome and turns every outfit into workwear

  3. J.CREW Bayswater peacoat in thinsulate I actually bought this twice because I lost the first one while on a train in berlin.

  4. Rogue Territory Stanton Jeans They fit great, slim but not tight.

  5. Bison down fingerless gloves Super warm!
u/AwesomeBrainPowers · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

More like these. Or something in a darker, redder color, like these.

u/BrutalJones · 2 pointsr/BarefootRunning

All year:

Allen Edmonds Strand

Florsheim Broxton

Converse Chuck Taylor All-Stars


Red Wings Iron Ranger


Sperry Top-Siders

There are many others, but these are the mainstays. I really like shoes.

u/geoman2k · 2 pointsr/frugalmalefashion

It's a pretty casual belt, in that it's very thick and hearty. Works great with streetwear/workwear, probably not as well if you're dressing up.

I have it in Sunset Brown and it matches my Amber Iron Rangers perfectly. They go together like they were made for each other. I'm now buying the Natural leather to match better with my Hawthorne Iron Rangers. Yes I own two pairs of IRs because I'm a crazy person.

I think the belt will look great with sperry's.

u/permaorangefingers · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

You actually started out exactly where I was a few years ago. I'm still learning, but here are a few things that I've picked up along the way:

  • as has been said already, Fit is the most important thing that you can be concerned about. Read the sidebars on fit, try to get a good idea of what a good fit means.

  • go shopping! That is not to say that you have to buy something every time you go shopping, but go and try stuff on. You cannot learn about fit without trying things on, because things fit everyone differently. I would guess that slim-fit button ups would look good on you from the pictures but it's hard to say. Different brands fit differently so have fun going into different stores. For example I have found that a Medium slim-fit from the Gap fits me almost perfectly without any tailoring required.

  • To expand on that last sentence, tailoring is usually required, or will always help. But if you can find something that fits pretty good you might be able to get away with saving the $10-$15. However, an extra $10 for a perfect fitting shirt is always worth considering.

  • Also for shopping don't go with a gf, go with a bro. But make sure it's a friend that you can trust and that has a good fashion sense himself, otherwise it's the blind leading the blind.

  • some stores I'd recommend off the top of my head are Brooks Brothers, J Crew, Club Monaco, Banana Republic, The Gap. I don't know where you live but those first two aren't even available to me. I've often looked at their stuff and it's great. I don't know what your budget is but those are listed roughly by most to least expensive. That being said there is no law against trying stuff on that you don't buy, and maybe there will be a sale on something that you just can't pass up. If you don't buy it, it will be there the next time you go back. And if it's not, well it's just a shirt, no big deal. There will be many more like it. Don't buy it unless you're in love with it.

  • I've recently become fixated on the importance of footware. You don't need to spend a lot on a shoe that looks good, especially if you're going for a more casual look. But I feel it adds a lot to the overall look and in some cases you can build a wardrobe around it. What I mean by that is something like the Wolverine 1000 Mile Boot or the Red Wing Iron Ranger are expensive but versatile. You can wear them with jeans, chinos, dress pants and even a suit, depending on the occasion and the suit. Though I think you'll be ok with a nice looking sneaker for a while while you're developing your wardrobe. But it's something to consider. I used to be so hurting that I had to borrow entire outfits (including shoes) from friends because what I was wearing would get me turned away from the club we were going to (some of which have no sneaker rules). EDIT: if you do purchase leather boots or shoes make sure that you research leather care and they will last you forever! This also makes the cost more justifiable.

  • Lastly, remember that it won't happen all at once. Gradually acquire more and more of the wardrobe you want and eventually you won't wear your old stuff to the point that you can get rid of it

I'm no so sure it is.. This boot is linked directly from the MFA Fall fashion guide that has been added to the Side Bar. As well as on the Red Wing Website.. it says it's muleskin leather? I haven't the slightest clue of what that is.

u/AlGoreVidalSassoon · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

DO you mean actual steel toed work boots for doing construction? Or do you mean styled like a work boot but better looking. For the latter Red Wing Beckman, Red Wing Iron Ranger and Wolverine 1000 Mile are generally considered the best.

u/talkin_soda_pop · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

I was looking into buying some Iron Rangers. I can get Copper ones for cheaper than on Amazon at a store nearby, but I think they only have Copper. I can't decide if I want Copper or Amber - the copper pair I tried on looks lighter than it does on Amazon, and I'd like a darker boot since I don't have dark brown shoes. Does anyone know how the Coppers looks like after some wear and tear and care (e.g. the red wing leather dressing)?

u/MR-CAPSLOCK · 1 pointr/frugalmalefashion

This is what I found

Really nice boots but I guess I'm looking for something very similar with a cheaper price tag. Thanks though!

u/homemade_mayo · 1 pointr/frugalmalefashion

Two weeks ago Katahdins went for $168. There might be another sale in a couple weeks if you are willing to wait. No guarantee it will be 20% off, though.

You like the Earthkeepers which are chukka boots and a lot different from the Boyd boots you love. The option for these would be Clark Desert Boots. I wouldn't pay regular price, and they can get down to the $80 range pretty regularly.

Options for NOW would be Thorogoods 1 or 2 from Amazon with the 20% off shoe email coupon or Chippewa's.

You can also get Iron Rangers on sale if you wait patiently. They'll never reach your budget though but they are quality. Toe box is a little big.

You can find more options if you search for boots on FMF. This topic comes up regularly so you might find more opinions. I suggested the more frequent ones, though.

u/yarmulke · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

I just came across these listings for some Redwing, and Wolverine 1k's that I'm interested in, even if they aren't the cap-toes.

Edit and these Iron Ranger Heritage

u/jarmojobbo · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

This flannel
Love this cardigan sweater
First boots: Alden or Amber Iron Ranger's? $75 dollar difference with the Alden's on sale, but I might be able to find the Ranger's cheaper somewhere? I like to save moneys.

u/dshoo · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice
290-58 (20% off from shoe newsletter signup)=$232 when bought through amazon, + 2 day free shipping
My reservations: I already have CDB and a Chippewa GQ's, one year old each. vs
Been reading recently that the blue is less versatile than the navy, but I feel like the navy suit is too close to black which I already have but maybe you guys know better.

u/tPRoC · 1 pointr/todayilearned

I don't buy APC because there are better brands at slightly lower (though still high- think $50-$90 shirts) prices, like Acne and Wings + Horns. I can guarantee you, with 100% certainty that it cost them way more than $10 to produce. The brands that produce clothing for almost nothing and mark it up incredibly are more along the lines of brands like Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, Hollister, Abercrombie & Fitch, Kenneth Cole, etc. APC is a low-end designer brand based in france; they don't produce utter shit, even though there are better options.

APC marks its prices up probably about 60% which is a bit more than its competitors, but they still offer a decent product. You kind of sound like you're wearing a tinfoil hat, not all corporations are out to get you and steal your money- some of them just want to make a good product.

Do you think Redwing Boots are just pieces of shit made for $10 that have been marked up, too?

u/brobi-wan-kendoebi · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

Red Wing Iron Rangers have almost the same style. Great boot, even if its the posterboy boot on this site.

u/percypersimmon · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

As a Minnesotan I endorse the Red Wing Gentleman Travelleler or the Iron Ranger.

I was able to purchase both, after shopping around and using RetailMeNot for coupon codes, for ~$175 and I will have both for years and years.

u/uselessjd · 1 pointr/frugalmalefashion

Oh man, MFA is almost information overload, but thanks for pointing me there.

Jackets, I like Filson's Mackinaw Cruiser, Tin Cruiser, and Packer. I think I might just have to bite the bullet and pay for the quality. I know my Grandfather has had one of the Mackinaws for close to 60 years now and it is still in heavy use. I really like the Packer, but it would need a wool insert to be warm enough I think.

For Shoes, I like this from Red Wing, but it is pricey.

u/StunnedApe · 1 pointr/FrugalMaleFashionCDN

Hey all,

I purchased a pair of red wing iron rangers for roughly $200 final sale after shipping and unfortunately they do not fit.. wondering if anyone would be interested in them here or if anyone knows of a place I could sell them. Thank you!

Red wing iron rangers size 11
Same style as the boots in the link provided

u/somekidouthere · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

Does it snow/rain a lot in your area or is it just cold?

MFA has its own boot guide, look here

Popular boots on MFA are: RW IR, RW Beckman, My current winter boot is the RW 875, Thorogood Moc, Thorogood Plain, Chippewa GQ, Bean Boots.

All of these boots can be found in your price range through sales and coupon codes. All would be good for light snow except for the first and the Chippewa GQ. Bean boots are the best for heavy snow.

u/perpetual_air · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

Only looking to get one of the following, but am new to buying boots, FRYE Mens Tyler Lace-Up Boot or Red Wing Iron Rangers.

I also can't decide which color will go with my usual outfit, this and this is what I normally wear, a nice shirt, sometimes a sweater, and jeans(or chinos).

u/footcreamfin · 1 pointr/goodyearwelt

I need help choosing a boot: Red Wing Iron Rangers or L.L. Bean Hawthorne boots

u/titaniumwings · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice
u/TheLochnessPlonster · 1 pointr/frugalmalefashion

I found red wing iron ranger on amazon for $200. They appear to be factory firsts. Is this too good to be true or is this legit?

u/danhakimi · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

Part of the reason wee recommend nicer shoes is because they handle wear better -- higher quality leather, resoleable, etc. That said, if you want to go with red wings, they're sturdier and probably look better dirty, and will probably occasionally go on sale for a similar price.

u/tatonnement · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

The IR is actually all rubber:

That's a good idea to cover the leather, though.

u/zachdoom · 1 pointr/BuyItForLife

Personally i just need boots for casual use. Something that is fairly stylish but can take a beating without somethig getting lose or falling off etc. I would also really like something stylish along the lines of the red wing ranger boots

And my budget is something along the lines of 250 USD. But all recommendations would help.

u/coconutgrape · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

I wouldn't go brown belt or shoes with black pants. And I wouldn't wear boots unless they're dress boots like this and not like this. If you have a chance and some money, go buy a light blue dress shirt like this. It will look much nicer.

u/rococobaroque · 1 pointr/femalefashionadvice

My boyfriend just bought these after owning a pair of their work boots for 10 years. I bought a pair of Iron Rangers and so far I am in love with them. I'm a U.S. women's size 7, sized down to a men's 4.5.

I'm petite (5'1, 108 pounds) and was worried that they'd look chunky on me, but the cork sole on the Iron Rangers slims them down quite a bit. They're ostensibly men's (they're not currently available in women's sizes yet) but they have quite elegant lines. Here are a couple of shots of them on (excuse crappy iPhone quality).

Close up:


u/lvzxy · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

Sweet man, Twin Cities?

I have Iron Rangers with lugged soles similar to the Brooks Brothers version, but the new Iron Rangers in Oxblood have a half-sole that would probably work well too if you want the style. Other "MFA-Approved" Red Wings would be the Moc Toe and the Beckman.

Out of those three I would recommend the Beckmans because their soles are the most useful unless you're willing to shell out the money for the Brooks Brother's Iron Rangers. I got lucky with mine and bought a pair of Iron Rangers with custom lugged sole off Grailed for about $200.

u/LionoftheNorth · 1 pointr/short

Dr Martens are a very specific kind of boot with a very unique look. Due to both look and cultural association, they're best left to punks, skins and the like. Skinheads wearing docs is definitely cool. Wearing a pair for the sole and trying to pass it off as a regular boot is not. I had a 5'4" teacher do it in high school. Nobody cared about his height, everyone cared about his shoes.

If you want a proper combat boot, check out these Corcoran Jump Boots instead. If you're not really after the combat boot look, go for a pair of Wolverine 1000 Miles, Red Wing Iron Rangers, Red Wing Beckman or the equivalent Chippewa boot.

are a little less expensive if that helps
