We extensively investigate two-step shape invariance in the framework of -fold supersymmetry. We first show that any two-step shape-invariant system possesses type A 2-fold supersymmetry with an intermediate Hamiltonian and thus has second-order parasupersymmetry as well. Employing the general form of type A 2-fold supersymmetry, we systematically construct two-step shape-invariant potentials. In addition to the well-known ordinary shape-invariant potentials, we obtain several new and novel two-step shape-invariant ones which are not ordinary shape invariant. Furthermore, some of the latter potentials are conditionally two-step shape invariant and thus are conditionally solvable.
