I have high expectations for my shoes. I travel extensively internationally and put many miles onto my shoes not only in airports, but also on the streets in all kinds of weather. Furthermore, I abide by a carry-on only policy so I need a comfortable, durable, multi-purpose shoe which works with jeans and suits. This is it. I've had them for 10 months now and with regular polish and edging they are doing great. These have not replaced my high end dress shoes, but are the only shoe I bring when I travel. They have survived the streets the rain, sleet, snow, and dirt of Beijing, Paris, and London as well as numerous manufacturing plant floors. These were also the shoes I had when I sprinted from the international terminal at O'Hare to gate C31 making a 35 minute connection!

SO disappointed that these are made in China. Johnston and Murphy's quality has really gone downhill.

Let me preface this statement with the fact that I am no shoe snob. I would honestly say that if I don't think a shoe is of decent quality, you're going to be hard pressed to find someone who is. Which is why I'm a little perplexed at how this shoe got such good ratings from others here. I'm wondering if possibly it's been redesigned over the course of its run, and that some of the other positive reviews were of an older, better quality version of this. Or perhaps those reviewers got the shoe in a smaller size (sometimes shoes just don't look good in a size 13, which is what I ordered). Either way, my complaint is simple: it doesn't look like a dress shoe, and just looks low quality overall. My main complaints are the leather and the sole. The leather is very soft, which is comfortable, but comes across as positively fake, as well as out-of-place on a shoe like this that might be worn with a suit. Even worse, its sole is very noticeably made totally of rubber, and in a bad way. In fact, my wife actually thought the shoes looked like they were made for someone with foot problems. Though impressions may differ, whatever the description, everyone I've asked agrees on one point: they look really cheap. Ultimately, I just expected more from a Johnston & Murphy. I have an older pair of J&M oxfords that I no longer wear (because I like the squared off toe better) from the late 90's. They were made in Italy, and could easily be resoled and worn for years to come. This shoe doesn't even bear a passing resemblance to the older J&M's I have. This one just looks disposable. Moreover, my reason for even trying this shoe was that I've been trying to find a replacement for a pair of Kenneth Coles that I've gotten at least three or four times back-to-back over the last several years. Though they're still available, the problem with them was that they have an annoying gel insert that is cheaply made and sticks to your sock after about a month. Despite that, they are cheaper and look worlds better, and I will now be going back to them. Anyway, I hope you disagree with me, and enjoy these shoes. But I have very low hopes that you will.

These were incredibly comfortable from day one. I tend to wear thicker socks and an orthotic. Without these, the shoes can feel a bit roomy. But if you are like me and use thicker socks, these cannot be beat for incredible comfort. The style is very good, but still not quite as nice/sophisticated as classic dress shoes like an Allen Edmonds. But those shoes are nowhere near as comfortable as these. I highly recommended these for truly supportive dress shoes that go well with a suit or slacks.

I owned these shoes for a little over six months and they are still very comfortable and functional. They are a great mid-upper range dress shoe with well above average comfort. There is a removable insole for size and width adjustment.

If you have a wide foot this is not a great shoe for you, despite the claim that it's dual width. The wide size is achieved by taking out the comfortable insole. It makes for a very hard, not soft, feel. I had to order an aftermarket insole to give this shoe some comfort.
