Buffalo Boots GmbH was founded in 1979 as a retail-business for cowboy boots. Back then cowboy boots were the most fashionable shoe wear for teens. The success of this retail-business lead to the distribution of the brand BUFFALO throughout Germany at first. Early in the 80-ies Buffalo Boots GmbH developed its first sport shoe which then had been sold extraordinarily successful in over 20 different colour combinations. On various international fairs Buffalo Boots GmbH then began offering a wider range of styles beside the cowboy boots. In 1984, Buffalo Boots GmbH started selling its products also outside of Germany – USA, England, France, Netherlands, Austria and Australia. During that time BUFFALO became a famous brand in the young fashion shoe market. In 1995 Buffalo Boots GmbH created and developed a sport shoe line which, with its platform sole, was highly innovative in the international market. Since that time until today BUFFALO became one of the most well known brands in the European market. VIPs like SPICE GIRLS, CHER, MADONNA, N’SYNC and CAMERON DIAZ started wearing BUFFALO shoes.
