Product Description

Story of the American Bison Boot

The Bison Boot is in a class of its own. It’s made with American Bison hides that are each unique like the legendary animal itself. Slipping your feet in the Bison Boots is an experience in itself, as the leather forms to your foot instantly. The perfect balance between form and function, the Bison boot is in a class of its own.

In 2011 we built a timber frame factory in the woods of Maine. We found the old timers to show us the old ways. We did what had to be done. We dug deep in the ground and in our hearts. We brought back what was forgotten. The people remembered why they used to be makers. “The world’s best”, that’s what American Made used to mean. Here’s the secret... it still does.

All our leather is tanned right here in Maine, 45 minutes from the Origin boot factory. We source our materials and components close to home. From brass eyelets, to laces and thread, everything is sourced domestically. Proving the American supply chain is still very much alive. Have comfort that your boots are 100% Made in America, without compromise.

American Bison are a unique untamed animal. Each hide therefore is also unique, and varies in shade, and character.

Factory Blockchain

At Origin, our promise is Made in America Without Compromise. That means we exhaust exhaust all efforts to source every major and minor material, fiber and component in America, even if it takes longer or the cost is higher. On occasions, we've found America has lost certain manufacturing abilities, and we are unable to make a component here. When this happens, we look to countries close by for support, but we also put out a call to arms to help us find or restore that part of the supply chain. Sometimes, we buy factories, re-shore old machines and make it ourselves. The Origin Factory Blockchain is a transparent look at where every part of your garment or footwear comes from.

Just received my Big Lug American Bison Boots and I'm very, very happy! Put them on while wearing my winter socks and they fit perfect (Size 11 - Wide EE). Walked around with them and am surprised at how comfortable the sole feels. I inspected every inch and can tell they're made to last and that I'll be able to walk off the stiffness of the leather easily. These are my first pair of handmade boots and I plan on keeping them in great condition for as long as possible. Took the laces out and applied Leather Honey conditioner to seep into the leather overnight. Tomorrow I'll be buffing in Otter Wax lanolin & beeswax sealant to keep them shiny and protected. I also got Otter Wax saddle soap in case the get dirty. I'm good to go! I'll be walking around the farm with the best boots in town. 5 stars from top to bottom. Worth every penny and worth the wait to manufacture them. Thank you Origin!

These boots are straight out of the box phenomenal. After undergoing five ankle surgeries over the decades and needing something sturdy with a solid base plus a bit of a rise, the big lug fits the bill in every iota. The craftsmanship and detail is impeccable, the quality is stellar. I wear these boots daily with the D68 and can only smile! Thanks OriginMaine!!!
