Why are they allowed to touch shoes in the first place? I would think shoes would be off limits.
Tire them out; take them for a long walk, then take them out individually to run, play fetch, burn energy.
Then put them both in their crates with a frozen kong.
After that do some basic training; maybe some impulse control work - work on leave it, doggy zen, Karen Overall's relaxation protocol:
Untrained, young dogs, in my opinion - are like rabid toddlers...you have to orchestrate every move for them and you can't turn your back for a second. You don't have to be harsh or punative; just firm, clear and completely consistent. It's allot of work in the beginning; dogs like children will not raise themselves; and if they do - generally doesn't turn out too well.
