Innovative. Tenacious. Charismatic. These are just a few words that describe the talented tour de force that is SHANE & SHAWN WARD. The talented twin designers from New York City, by way of Detroit, launched their innovative shoe collection, SHANE&SHAWN in the Fall of 2003 with the goal of making the most comfortable - hip - fashion shoes ever! A modern, edgy dress/casual shoe and accessories line for men and women that combines hip/stylish silhouettes with athletic comfort.
Shane & Shawn Ward speak to audiences with the primary goal of traveling the globe to colleges and universities in order to share our experiences and expertise with the next generation of entrepreneurs. With a vast amount of experience in manufacturing, logistics, design, merchandising, marketing, public relations, investor relations, business plan building, social media, product development, sales and finance, they are looking to help students understand the trials, hurdles, and ultimately the American Dream of entrepreneurship.
Not born with a silver spoon and with a very humble upbringing, the twins have taken a start-up company with no major investors from ground zero to selling to large corporate giants such as Macy’s, Nordstrom, Zappos.com, Amazon.com, Shoes.com, and MGM/Mirage Casino Group. They have also expanded to sell shoes in Europe, South America and Canada.
