Our Story

Men's dress shoe brands have always favored style over comfort - until now.

Wolf & Shepherd was born from a simple idea: equip hard-working professionals with footwear that keeps up with them. By combining athletic innovations with timeless styles, our shoes perform as hard as you do - day in and day out.

Meet the founders.

We’re on a mission to bring you better footwear. As former Division I Track & Field athletes, we know the value of having the best equipment to succeed. When we entered the work force, we felt like no one was giving professional work wear the same attention. With backgrounds in performance shoe design and development, we decided it was time to bring the dress shoe into the 21st century. By combining technologies used in the fastest running shoes in the world with Italian leather uppers, we’ve crafted a super comfortable dress shoe unlike any other on the market. Try them for yourself and feel the difference.

When you buy Wolf & Shepherd, you get a dress shoe unlike anything else you've ever felt. 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 crafted using soft Italian leathers, finished with high-grade 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.


The Results Are In.

A Homerun

This was my first experience with Wolf & Shepherd and it's a homerun. The shoes are extremely comfortable and feel somewhat like a sneaker. I usually don't wear black shoes but since I ordered my cap toes in black, I find ways to wear them. My next pair of Wolf and Shepherd shoes will be in brown.

These are by far the best shoes I have tried on. I have always stuck with "Johnston & Murphy" and "Allen Edmonds". From now on I am buying these. Nothing was wrong with either of the companies I bought from before, but these shoes just blow them out of the water. There is no "break-in" period, they fit as if they were made to your foot (at least in my case).

I wear dress shoes six days a week. Finding comfortable dress shoes that don't look like orthopedic shoes has been like searching for the fountain of youth. Search no more. These shoes really are ridiculously comfortable but look so good you would think they have to be uncomfortable. My only regret is not having these shoes decades ago. Mine fit like a glove.

‘‘Wolf & Shepherd is pitching men's dress shoes as comfortable enough for long commutes’’
‘‘Stylish dress shoes made to feel as comfortable as sneakers... by a former Adidas designer’’
‘‘All the comfort of a running shoe..and now they have a world record to back it up.’’

Record-breaking dress shoes.

It’s the feat that still has people talking. In 2015 Juris Silenieks not only ran the Hotlanta Half Marathon wearing our Closer Cap Toe - he won the entire race. The (almost) unbelievable story was picked up by USA Today, Newsweek, Men’s Journal and more, and will forever be a landmark moment in the history of our company.
