About Wolf & Shepherd
Wolf & Shepherd was founded in 2014 by footwear designer and former decathlete, Justin Schneider, who set out to create the world’s most comfortable dress shoes.
Drawing on his experience as an athlete and shoes designer, Justin began to design dress shoes that would satisfy the sartorial requirements of today’s men while providing superior comfort and performance only found in high-end athletic footwear. The company even made major headlines in 2016 when a competitive runner set a world record for “The Fastest Half-Marathon Won in Dress Shoes” while wearing a pair of Wolf & Shepherd Cap Toe Oxfords.
The popularity of Wolf & Shepherd’s particularly comfortable dress shoes helped fuel the company’s rapid growth since its founding in 2014. Today the company offers a full line of comfort-focused footwear that consists of dress shoes, loafers and boots.
The shoes themselves are designed at the company’s headquarters in Los Angeles, California, and crafted in Portugal using premium Italian calf-skin leathers, as well as Parisian waxes and other high-end materials. Each pair of shoes incorporates Wolf & Shepherd’s patented Comfort Technology which gives the shoes their superior comfort that the brand has become so well-known for.
