The concept for Wolf & Shepherd stemmed from a problem that many professionals face: Going to and from work in sneakers to avoid the discomfort of typical dress shoes. Wolf & Shepherd provides the solution by combining the technology of a running shoe with a classic dress shoe.



Justin Schneider is the founder and originator of the concept for our shoes. As a track and field athlete for Notre Dame, Justin became familiar with high performance footwear. Upon graduation, he began working for Adidas, designing shoes for athletes utilizing the latest performance technology. During this time, Justin had a conversation with a friend about a problem that was far too common in the professional world; uncomfortable dress shoes. Instead of forcing yourself to wear uncomfortable dress shoes all day, or switching to sneakers in-between, why not just mold together the best of each shoe?

Justin mocked up the first W&S prototype by gluing the foam heel of his running shoe to the sole of an old pair of dress shoes. Now crafted in Europe, using American manufactured comfort technology, Wolf & Shepherd is redefining the modern dress shoe.


When you buy W&S, you get a dress shoe unlike anything else on the market. While others make similar claims, we are the only ones who offer athletic comfort alongside a high level of quality and craftsmanship.

Each pair of Wolf & Shepherd shoes are hand-sewn by legacy craftsmen in Porto, Portugal using fine Italian calfskin, finished with luxe Parisian waxes and completed with our running shoe technology that is manufactured and developed here in America. Watch the video to see how it's done.
