About Us

It all started as banter between a couple of mates, Paul and Joe (middle names Antoine & Stanley). These lads appreciated quality, and some of the finer things in life. One cracking summer day in Sydney’s north, these two were bemoaning their recent experience shoe shopping in Australia. Frustrated by lack of choice, they both had to select the same style of loafer, which seemed well overpriced. It was agreed, if one of them were to go on to pursue a change in men’s footwear, it would be called Antoine & Stanley.

Years later, and Paul Waddy has spent more than 10 years immersing himself in the art of men’s leather shoes and accessories. Antoine & Stanley, after being founded in 2007 is now approaching 10 years in Australian footwear, and has secured stockists along the way including David Jones, ASOS, Amazon UK, Sydney FC, and The Socceroos.

Favoured by Australians of all kinds, and their pals from across the ditch in NZ, A&S also attracted customers such as Jason Derulo, Guy Sebastian, Perez Hilton, Anthony Miniciello, Thirsty Merc and Adam Goodes.

The mission and vision of A&S is quite simple:

Mission: Antoine & Stanley’s mission is to help men look good by offering high quality, on-trend men’s footwear and accessories, and feel good by offering superior customer service, delivered with warmth, courtesy, professionalism and attention to detail.
