Buffalo: Mexican cowboy boots, boots, women’s fashion & history

Buffalo – The history of Buffalo begins in 1979 with Mexican cowboy boots. After the introduction of the first sports shoe, growth was rapid and today it is impossible to imagine the shoe market without the brand. Just like Puma, Nike and Adidas, Buffalo is one of the most successful shoe brands.

From cowboy boot to sports shoe

Buffalo Boots was founded in 1979 in Hochheim am Main, Germany. In the early years, the brand focused only on cowboy boots, as they were the most popular shoes for teenagers at the time. In the 80s Buffalo launched its first sports shoe and became a worldwide success. This success allowed the brand to expand abroad and today there are branches in countries such as America, England, France, the Netherlands, Australia and Austria. Buffalo Boots has continued this success and now has an extensive collection of shoes. This ranges from boots to sneakers to heeled shoes. The brand has become so popular that world stars like Madonna and the Spice Girls have started wearing the shoes.

What began in the early years by offering only western boots has now expanded to countless variations of modern footwear fashion. Buffalo Boots initially sold its cowboy boots exclusively in Germany. When the company developed its first athletic shoes in 20 different color combinations in the 1980s, Buffalo was able to expand internationally. Until the mid-1980s, Buffalo was primarily a shoe brand for men. However, as the range expanded, Buffalo became equally popular with women. In 1995, the first sports shoes with a platform midsole came onto the market, which were an absolute novelty at the time. The platform shoes were initially popular mainly in the techno scene, and later with a wide audience. Now many celebreties also became aware of the shoe brand. Among others, the Spice Girls, Madonna, N’Sync and Cher wore shoes from Buffalo. Since then, the collections have been expanded more and more, especially women’s shoes.
