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.

    Ordered for my son for Christmas I will be so excited to give them to him. I ordered early to ensure I was able to get them in time.

    Bison boot with lug sole

    Posted by Joe Roz on Apr 9th 2021

    Hands down one of the nicest boots I’ve ever purchased!!! I put them on last night and wore them out on the town for hours with No issues! As soon as the Bison leather heated up they started molding to my feet. 12ee were as advertised for sizing! Can’t wait for some Snow next week in Colorado. Worth ever Dime! Thanks Origin for keeping manufacturing in the States!

    Great boots.

    I have been wearing these everyday since they got here. They break in very fast, and are comfortable. I have been treating them with otter wax and they hold up well in the wet/ snowy conditions. Any scratches buff right out with wax and a brush.The craftsmanship is incredible. Only thing I would change is the sole i picked, but overall these are top notch.

    These boots are a blessing. I was looking for a good pair of new boots. I had gotten fed up with issues with my Danners. These truly are amazing and break in really well.

    Great build, less enthusiastic about the sole...

    Posted by JG on Dec 4th 2020

    Just got these boots after an 8-9 week wait! Before I share my dislike, I’ll share what I do like. These boots are certainly high quality and they feel like it when I lace them up. Takes a good week or two for break in. I ordered mine with the Christy sole because I wanted a comfortable sole for office work and outdoor work. I found that in the Christy, but at the expense of grip. Origin said the Christy is soft, a 45-50 on the Shore A scale, which does make them easier to walk on all day and forgiving on the feet; however, the tread pattern is extremely shallow and nowhere near knobby enough, providing almost no grip on rocks, my Jeep’s step rail (which has grip of its own, yet I’ve slipped multiple times in these boots), or icy/wet ground. The lack of traction/grip is very similar to a Vans or Chuck Taylor shoe. I’d recommend that Origin reevaluate the Christy sole with some deeper tread because the pattern is wonderful and aggressive in style, but not as utilitarian and grippy as I’d expected. I’ll be reaching out to customer service for options.

    Worth the money

    Comfortable right out of the box, broke in wicked quick, and they are taking the abuse of a UPS driver well

    Worth it

    Well made boot - and most importantly all in the USA. Easy to break in. Have received compliments on them multiple times.
