The finishing on it was not up to par for the price. I couldn't get the laces through the top 3 inlets because it the tongue was sewn to the outside of the shoes. They were comfortable and the size was perfect but I couldn't justify keeping the shoes with the tongue stuck like that.

Great shoes for my wedding. I have a wide foot so ordered E in 10.5. The shoe definitely ran larger in both width and length and I had to return. Got a 10 in D and this pair fits like a glove. These shoes look amazing and were a very classy pair for my wedding. I will wear them with a suit to work now too. Also, Zappos customer service and return policy is awesome.

These are very comfortable dress shoes. My job does not require me to wear dress shoes so I only wear them during special occassions like weddings, funerals, job interviews. These are great looking standard cap-toe shoes that will get you through all of them. But the best part is, for dress shoes, they are very comfortable! You will be surprised at how comfortable they are. I can wear them for hours with no issues. They look sharp, are comfortable, and relatively inexpensive. These are highly recommended.

I bought both colors of these shoes for my son-in-law. He wears orthotics which fit into the shoes well. Thanks to Zappos for carrying sizes 16EEE, which are almost impossible to find anywhere else. He is completely satisfied. Thank you Zappos!

I have a 13 B foot. The 12 D in this shoe fits me well. The 13 was way too long. This shoe is comfortable and I like the leather outsole. This J&M 12 is longer than my other J&M 12s from 10 years ago.

Classic style, comfortable, a great dress shoe for the office or any other occasion. I have the same shoe in brown and black, the brown are perfect, the black give me blisters even after significant break in, that is the only reason for the 4 star comfort. Overall, definitely recommended, also consider the Waverly style.

I bought this shoes for my husband. The shoes are stiff when new, but they aren't uncomfortable like others he has had. He likes the tongue being sewn in on one side. It really keeps it from sliding. They are very sharp looking.

There are many things that change in the world of fashion, but men's dress shoes do not. Loafers are not dress shoes. Shoes with buckles or rubber soles, neither. Plastic (aka "patent leather") shoes had their heyday when plastic was cool, which was almost a hundred years ago. Black (or on some planets, brown, maybe) leather oxfords are the only proper dress shoes. You might as well get a pair in your width. For me, that's Johnston & Murphy, and I couldn't be any happier. The Melton is well made and uses high quality leather that keeps a good shine.

I found these shoes fitting true to size. Like most dress shoes there is a break in period. I have a hard to fit, flat, wide foot. I like this brand; I will buy the wingtip next.

Received the shoes in two days after ordering. Very fast service. Although the shoes were stiff at first, they were comfortable and after a few weeks of wearing them, they are some of my favorite shoes. They look very nice, crisp, professional and well made. People can tell at a glance that the shoes are a quality product.

Narrower than expected - Very well made shoe but they were much narrower than expected. If you have any doubts order the wide.

Perfect right out of the box - I had not bought Johnston & Murphy shoes in a long time, and I was impressed with the appearance and construction. These shoes were extremely comfortable right out of the box.

J & M make a great shoe! Zappos overnighted this pair of shoes to me and they fit like a glove. I have a narrow foot and have always had problems finding narrow shoe. The Melton is comfortable and high quality. It also looks great. I would buy them again in the future.

Simple, black, perfect - Just a great all around lace up. Little detailing makes it fit right out of the box. Very classy, good all leather sole so you can take them to the cobbler when you need them reworked.

Good Shoes - I wear a 13 narrow and have trouble finding comfortable shoes. These are good fitting and look great. My complaint is that they need a little breaking in. As for Zappos, you can't do better than them for shoes or anything else.

Great essential business shoe - This shoe is true to size. If you need width this is an excellent choice. Beware that the beautiful full grain leather is somewhat stiff and there will be a break in period that will prove to be well worth it. If you are in an environment that requires business dress this is a must in your shoe stable.

Fine pair of shoes - Great shoes, I wear a 10.5 normal width. I ordered the 10.5 and they were too long, I received the size 10 and they fit great. I ordered on Saturday and received the shoes Monday evening, very impressive. My second pair was ordered on Monday (when I realized the 10.5 was too large), the size 10 pair arrived Tuesday night, wow. My size 10 pair had a slight defect in that the hole that was punched out for one of the lace holes had imbedded itself under the leather near the lace hole, I had to cut a tiny slit on the underside, near the lace hole and pull out the piece of hole that had been punched out. No big deal, it was just a weird bubble in the leather until it was removed from underneath. Very comfortable shoes, they started "breaking in" after the first hour.

These shoes are very comfortable. Just the right style for the look I wanted. Hard to find large sizes that are also narrow, and Johnston & Murphy always has the size and style I need.

Satisfied Again - I needed a pair of dress shoes and have always liked Johnston & Murphy shoes. I like their style, comfort, and durability. When I received my shoes, they looked better than I thought they would. When I tried them on, they felt broken in as if I'd had them forever. I love them. When it came time to purchase my shoes, it was automatic that I would go straight to Zappos and order with total confidence. I knew that I might be able to buy them for less somewhere, but when it came to service and dependability, price was secondary. Thanks Zappos!

Very nice shoe - This shoe has a very clean look. I ordered a 9.5 which I thought felt more like a 10, but it still fits, so I'm keeping it. I'm very happy with these.
