El Segundo’s Wolf & Shepherd to open first retail location. The men’s dress-shoe company will open a brick and mortar in mid August. The new location will be in Westfield’s, Century City shopping plaza.
The company was founded in 2014. It offers dress shoes that feel and wear like sneakers to the active male. Until this point, the product was found in approximately 60 stores via wholesale. It also had a very strong online department.
The company has been very active out of the gate. It reportedly did $1 million in sales during its first year. That number has now risen to $10 million. Shoes have always provided a strong margin.
The company was founded by Justin Schneider. His resume includes stints at Adidas, Reebok and New Balance.
