With chunky sneakers on the comeback trail, it makes sense that Buffalo would bring its famous Wolkensohle sneaker out of retirement.
In addition to black and white version of the shoes sold through the company’s higher-priced Buffalo London division, Buffalo is also collaborating with Berlin-based designer Patrick Mohr on a capsule to be sold at better boutiques globally.
A few pairs have been distributed for editorials and the brand has seeded them with high-profile fashion types, including DJ Sita Abellan, model Jazzelle Zanaughtti and Milk Studio’s Ruth Gruca.
The brand achieved popularity as a favorite shoe among ravers in the ’90s, but reached even higher heights thanks to the Spice Girls who wore them throughout their run from 1994-2000.
Founded as a boot company in Germany in 1979, not long after the company began to make sport-inspired shoes. The brand’s flatform sneakers resurfaced briefly when U.S. Sole Supplier revived the shoe four years ago on its now-defunct etail site. Manufactured in Spain, the shoes were priced from to $195-$275. Since 2016, the shoes have been taken out of production.
Look for the Buffalo London collection to drop in the second-half of October 2017.
