Great ideas are born when friends gather over a meal. At such gatherings of friends, a conversation led to an idea of creating a company that would leave behind a legacy to be proud of. These friends searched for the right product and partner that would match the ideology, passion and enthusiasm and the came across the Woodland brand, which ticked all the boxes and so Woodland Africa was created.
Woodlands's parents company, Aero Group was founded in Quebec, Canada in the early 1950's and has been a well-known name in the outdoor footwear industry since then.
In the early 1990's The Group decided to launch some of its products in India. This is when the first hand-stitched leather shoe was introduced, which took the entire shoe market by storm and launched the brand "WOODLAND".
Even since the beginning, Woodland has successfully brought together the power of the human will and the rewards of discovery.
Woodland now extends the rewards of discovery of outdoor adventures to the Southern Africa region. A region synonymous with the outdoors and its diverse choices of terrain to explore.
