We demand a lot out of our shoes. They carry all of our weight, all-day, wherever we take them. Working professionals need a shoe that is stylish, comfortable and can withstand the demands of the 21st century. Until now, dress shoes lacked this seamless combination of comfort and style.
What if we told you that Wolf & Shepherd performance dress shoes would leave your feet feeling light and fast all-day, no matter what the workday brings?
We could brag about our shoes all-day, but we think that our customers do a better job.
Here are 7 customer reasons why Wolf & Shepherd's are an easy choice:
1. Comfort of a running shoe. Our proprietary memory foam instantly hugs the changing position of your foot. Your feet will thank you after a long day in your Wolf & Shepherd’s.
My feet are in Heaven. “Seriously, if you're on your feet in dress shoes all day or in/out of airports then these shoes are for you! Doesn't matter the style, they're all legit, just buy a pair (half down sizing was a good tip). The leather scent hit me the moment I opened the box and I knew these would be worth it. I bought a pair of Ferragamo's just a few weeks prior that will be collecting dust as they are like walking on plywood compared to W&S. No regrets, guaranteed.” – Michael M.
2. Lightweight support that does not sacrifice high quality construction. We put flex cuts in the shank and use a high-density foam heel found in running shoes for lightweight stability and support.
Addicted, out of the box! “The first thing that strikes you is the weight - or lack thereof. Dragging two dead weights on my feet is not my idea of comfort. The lack of weight did bring ‘quality’ into question, but a quick inspection revealed a well-constructed shoe with high quality materials. Then I put them on. That’s when the addiction began. I was wearing the wrong socks with a pair of old jeans, but felt like I’d had them for years. And then I couldn’t take them off because I was so surprised. Most ‘comfortable’ dress shoes look like they sound, comfortable, but not stylish. These look and feel awesome! I’ve already recommended them any poor soul who comes near me when I’m wearing them. Great job!” – Tom S.
3. Compliment-worthy style. Walk into the office in style with our shoes that are uniquely designed by our design team and constructed using the highest quality Italian calfskin leather on the market.
“The shoes have been far more comfortable than I expected. Broke in right away. I also get complimented on them all the time. Great combination of comfort and high end style. Service was also very customer friendly.” – Liron G
“Light and comfortable with dress appearance throughout. Look like my way more expensive Italian shoes.”– Albert R.
4. Handcrafted in Portugal. Our shoes are carefully crafted by a family-run factory in Porto, Portugal, ensuring that your shoes are constructed with an emphasis on the details.
First handcrafted shoe and best shoe
“Up until now, I've been wearing Johnston & Murphy shoes because they seem to be the best quality for your money. I've probably gone through 6-7 pairs before a friend turned me onto Wolf & Shepherd. I've been looking to step up my wardrobe in footwear and decided to give the Honey Cap Toe's a try. They took about 6 days from when I ordered to arrive with Wolf & Shepherd's free shipping but once I got them after eagerly anticipating their arrival I was blown away. The shoes came with a note from the founder, both shoes in shoe bags and the shoes were well padded as well given it was an online order. The first commute in these shoes blew my mind! No break in time needed at all and the shoes immediately shaped to my foot. I don't know why every other dress shoe company isn't copying these shoes - they are amazing and well worth the price tag!”– Michael S.
5. Proven performance. To validate our claims that Wolf & Shepherd shoes perform like their running shoe brethren, we set a world record for the fastest half-marathon run in dress shoes. A Wolf & Shepherd colleague, Juris Silenieks, won the Hotlanta Half-Marathon in a time of 1:17.05 (that’s 5:53 pace…).
"I saw Wolf & Shepherd's runner win a whole half-marathon last Sunday in Atlanta setting a world record for fastest time ever running in dress shoes - so they must be comfortable dress shoes. I can't even imagine running a marathon so doing it in dress shoes has to be tough!" – Karen Slack
6. Easy Break-In. The Wolf & Shepherd leather tanning process takes an already softer calfskin and creates a feel unlike any other, drastically shortening break in time. You’ll be dress to perform right out of the box.
“These shoes feel great and look better! Right out of the box they were comfortable and fit great. I wore them all day for my wedding and never once thought about my feet hurting. I wish I could wear these shoes everyday.” – Nicholas G.
7. Responsive Customer Service. Our team is happy to help answer any questions, aid you in sizing and in give advice to make right style choice for you.
“I used the fb chat bot for the first time with Wolf and Shepherd, and it was super responsive and quick. It really sold me and pushed me over the edge to make my purchase.” – Andres D.
