Buffalo is a brand of clothing and accessories founded in 1979, perhaps best known for its footwear, owned by the Buffalo Boots GmbH. Its headquarters are in Hochheim am Main, Germany. Buffalo's notoriety increased significantly with the popularity, especially in Europe, of its platform shoes from the mid-1990s through the early 2000s.

Buffalo manufactures women's shoes, men's shoes like dress shoes, western and biker boots, skate shoes, high heels, pumps, sandals, overknee boots, flip-flops, and other footwear, as well as shirts, jackets, trousers, skirts, hosiery, swimsuits, undergarments and small baggage.
