About Buffalo Shoes
Founded in 1979 in Germany, Buffalo Boots initially saw great success from their designs of cowboy boots. Several years later, Buffalo responded to changing fashions and began to produce sports shoes. The ranges proved so popular that in 1984 the brand began to expand and sell shoes outside of Germany. Buffalo rose to prominence in the 1990s due to the introduction of their most famous design element ? the platform. Worn by celebrities from the Spice Girls to Madonna, these eye-catching shoes and boots led to Buffalo becoming one of the most famous footwear brands in Europe.
Buffalo manufacture a wide range of shoes and boots, including styles for men, women and children. They offer both casual and formal footwear, along with shoes suitable for all weathers. Popular men's designs include biker boots, dress shoes and casual shoes such as trainers and loafers. The western boots which led to the brands early success are still available, and continue to appeal to men as a hard-wearing yet stylish choice. Women's designs include feminine versions of the cowboy classic, along with sandals, pumps and glamorous, high heeled party shoes.
The platform design that led to Buffalo's success in the 1990s is still a popular style. Platform boots for women have a lasting appeal, offering a classic look with extra height, while the iconic platform trainer is available in many different designs. Classic, sporty styles are great for a casual look, while black and animal print trainers, enhanced with studs, patent leather and glitter effects, are perfect for clubbing.
