About Womens Buffalo Trainers

Whether you’re throwing down on the dance floor or stomping from shop to shop in the high street, these fashionable yet tough sneakers will serve you well.
The origins of Buffalo trainers
Although they’re now best known for their trainers, Buffalo began their shoe making career in 1976 with a line of cowboy boots. The story gets even stranger when we reveal that, rather than being based in Memphis, Tennessee or Austrin, Texas, Buffalo hail from Wiesbaden - Germany’s premier spa town!
After a successful stint making only cowboy boots, in the 80s Buffalo branched out into different types of shoes. Their first trainers made their way into stores in 1984. Their sneakers were modestly successful until 1995, when Buffalo unveiled their iconic plateau midsole. One group took to this new shoe design immediately - ravers. They found it was the perfect shoe to pogo around warehouse parties and laser-lit nightclubs.
These days Buffalo trainers are a sought-after retro throwback shoe, and have shot up in popularity over the last few years. With all kinds of new models, your choice of Buffalo footwear has never been better. Speaking of which...
What kind of Buffalo trainers can I buy?
If you want classic Buffalo trainer designs you can rest easy when you look at this category. Our verified sellers have plenty of brand new Buffalo trainers that draw on the classic styles of the 80s and 90s. That means the seminal Buffalo midsole that’s as chunky as ever. You can pick plain white or black colours, beige and gold mixes and more. Some of the throwback Buffalo trainers have half black, half white mixes done-up in an unforgettable spray paint style!
Although some of their models have a retro chic appeal, Buffalo are still a thoroughly modern brand. For instance, many of their trainers are totally vegan friendly. Made from synthetic 'nappa' leather, these shoes look super stylish without the guilt. Many of their shoes have memory foam inserts to make them more comfortable to wear for long periods.
