Footwear and accessories by Buffalo: a modern icon
Famed for its towering platform trainers and boots, Buffalo is a fashion go-to when your wardrobe needs a little lift. This clothing and accessories brand stands tall in the footwear department, whether you’re after minimalist flats or chunky heels.
A footwear label that rises above its competitors
This German brand launched in 1979 as Buffalo Boots. It specialised in cowboy boots, one of the most popular footwear options for teens at the time. Over the next two decades, the brand branched out to embrace more athletic styles with a retro touch. It crafted vibrant trainers in a rainbow of colour combinations throughout the '80s, while still focusing on the knee-high boots that made it famous. In 1995, the label had its international breakthrough with the platform-soled Hightower trainer.
Influenced by the rave scene, these sky-high styles were tough yet practical – just right for grimy warehouses and grassy fields. They brought a cyber-punk futuristic edge to footwear that made them instant sell-outs. Since then, Buffalo platform trainers have cemented themselves as a firm favourite amongst A-listers and everyday trendsetters alike. The modern take on this classic design gives you added height and comes in fresh new colours and profiles.
Get a lift with signature platform trainers and boots
The elevated sole is an enduring influence, but there's more in store. Buffalo's modern collections blend classic trainer styling with cool colour palettes and flashes of brighter hues. We love the organic lines of this contemporary range. It’s not all sportswear here: over-the-knee boots see you through the colder months with light padding and treaded soles.
Old meets new in this collection. Stick with futuristic monochrome styles to keep it sleek or opt for contrasting panels and thick, eye-catching laces. Going out? Team a barely-there slip dress with a pair of high-top trainers for a fun play on silhouettes.
Go for the glamorous look with contrasting metallic heeled boots or channel your inner rock star in classic buckled biker styles. From shiny patent leather to mock-croc, Buffalo boots bring an easy touch of texture to casual outfits. Hiker-inspired ankle boots look great with denim cut-offs for all your urban adventures.
Turn on the charm with feminine flats and elegant heels
Special occasions call for added polish. This range includes glitzy stilettos and office-appropriate court shoes that take you from morning meeting to after-work happy hour. Look for embellishments like metallic straps, oversized buckles and peep-toe accents to dress up a pair of party-ready heels. We love teaming a little black dress with a pair of glittery slingbacks for a touch of sparkle.
Ballet pumps are a longstanding wardrobe essential. Look for sophisticated slip-ons upgraded with a ladylike bow, in matte and patent finishes. These polished classics look equally at home with skinny jeans and a plain white tee as they do with an A-line skirt and blouse.
Dive into holiday style with sandals and swimwear
Although it’s famed for its footwear, Buffalo also has a range of statement-making separates and accessories. Get your holiday wardrobe sorted with its line of figure-flattering swimwear. Choose from tie-waisted and sporty strapped bikinis in solid colours, prints and neutrals. Make a splash in lightweight beach cover-ups for strolls along the sand. Floaty jumpsuits and dresses look just right with an oversized straw hat and cat-eye sunnies.
Pick a pair of sandals to match from the latest footwear collection. You’ll find flexible, padded designs all decked out with beaded and bejewelled embellishments. Simple strappy numbers are super versatile. Wear your high-heeled platforms with a casual romper at the beach or dial up the glamour with a cocktail dress and dangly earrings for a spin around the dance floor.
