For years, we’ve been sourcing the humanely harvested meat for our Patagonia Provisions® Buffalo Jerky from Wild Idea Buffalo Company in South Dakota. But it never sat right with us that the hides were going to waste, so we put ‘em to work in our new Wild Idea Work Boots.

Due to a stampede of interest and because our mission is to increase the free-ranging herd size of the American bison, your size might be temporarily sold out. Since we will only ever make as many boots as the leftover hides from Wild Idea Buffalo Co’s food production and conservation practices allow, they will continue to arrive in small batches each season. Watch the story to learn more about these boots and Wild Idea’s good work on the prairie.
