no downsides to this shoe
Nice Boots
Copeland Chukka Review:
I have had these for a few weeks and at first they were a little stiff but have softened up. I wear these on weekends and casual Fridays, commuting to train in and out of city. They are well made and the core show construction seems well made. Comfy padded foot bed. The only few things that I have issue with are the brown scuffs easily but I am not wearing them like a finished shoe to be shined. Just with jeans, around town, etc. The brown is a bit darker than I would have liked. And I hope the crepe sole stands up to wear. We will see but Johnston and Murphy make good shoes so I am happy with my purchase
Stratton Cap Toe Boot Review:
For special occasions and formal attire
Bigger than the same model ten years ago
Melton Review:
These shoes are half size larger than the same product ten years ago. The cherry/cordovan color is very dark, and looks black in most lights. Difficult to coordinate with a suitable belt. The tongue is attached to the shoe on two sides, making it difficult to put it on. The leather is very hard, and takes too long to break in. Both these issues are not there in my ten year old black Melton.

About Johnston & Murphy

Johnston & Murphy's footwear legacy began in 1850, when English immigrant William J. Dudley opened his eponymous shoe and boot factory in Newark, New Jersey. Dudley joined forces with James Johnston in 1880, who in turn partnered with William A. Murphy following Dudley's death, and an iconic brand was born. Present-day owner Genesco, Inc. purchased the company in 1951, relocating headquarters to Nashville, Tennessee.

Johnston & Murphy has proudly provided shoes to every U.S. president since 1850, beginning with Millard Fillmore. Owing to his admiration for the 16th president, Barack Obama received both sleek runoff oxfords and a pair of three-eye ankle boots inspired by those given to Abraham Lincoln in 1861.

A pillar of classic workmanship, Johnston & Murphy crafts every pair, down to the last detail, using the highest quality materials, setting a high standard for confident, professional men everywhere. From sandals to loafers, boat shoes to boots, casual lace-ups to dress oxfords, comfortable Johnston & Murphy shoes for men are a cornerstone of every timeless wardrobe.
