Reviews

Nice
By Joel., from WA. | March 23, 2014

I have bought Johnston&Murphy before. I figured they would be quality shoes as expected. These Hartley plain toe, are comfortable, look great and will work with casual or a nice pair of slacks. Maybe I need a brown pair?

Shoe Review
By Jim D., from Reno, Nevada | March 15, 2014

Quality was not up to my expectations for a $175 shoe. It felt more like hard plastic than a nice leather. I am disappointed. I would not recommend buying this shoe to anyone. It feels like it will take me a long time to break it in and it is very uncomfortable at the end of the day.

  • Shoe Size: Felt half size smaller than marked
  • Shoe Width: Felt true to width
  • Wears this shoe: Work and special events.

Great Experience
By Rick, from Davenport, Iowa | March 08, 2014

This is a classy shoe that can be worn for casual or dress occasions. Which is why I bought it, and it didn't break the bank at this great price. The shoe fit perfect right out of the box. It is quite comfortable and will require a very minimal breakin period. Looks to be well made,and I think it should stand the test of time. Have no complaints.

  • Shoe Size: Felt true to size
  • Shoe Width: Felt true to width
  • Wears this shoe: I wear it with jeans, and dress slacks, a couple times aweek.

Shoebuy Insider on Johnston & Murphy Shoes

The word "presidential" elicits images of elegance, class, and dignity. It is why five star hotels have presidential suites and luxury resorts give the presidential treatment. As a source of footwear for presidents since Millard Fillmore, Johnston & Murphy takes genuine pride in its commitment to live up to all the expectations that come with the presidential label.

The now internationally acclaimed brand can credit its dedication to quality craftsmanship to its founder William Dudley. Dudley, an immigrant from Europe who first set up shop in New Jersey in 1850, was finely trained in the art of English shoemaking. Dudley quickly made a name for himself and, in his company's first year of existence, its finely crafted shoes found their way onto the feet of President Fillmore. With wide appeal to businessmen looking for quality shoes, the company rapidly expanded.

Today, Johnston & Murphy remains a leader in men's footwear. Classic oxford and derby designs, made with the finest materials and attention to detail, still dominate boardrooms throughout the United States and world. Men seeking elegance, class, and affordability turn to Johnston and Murphy. And, Johnston & Murphy continues to broaden its selection from dress to casual, such as penny loafers and boat shoes, and accessories, such as leather belts, wallets, and briefcases. For men who appreciate a touch of affluence and elegance in every aspect of their wardrobes, Johnston & Murphy has them covered from head to toe.
