My second pair
By George, from Asheville NC | July 08, 2014

I had a pair of these shoes for several years. Had no idea I could replace them when they wore out. Was pleased to find this shoe still on the market. Makes a great casual shoe for weekend wear.

Mens Johnston & Murphy Double Calf
By Momboss, from Omaha, NE | July 04, 2014

I bought this belt for my son who reported to me that I had bought the exact same belt for him a year ago. He agreed that the belt is a good one, and we agreed that I should not buy another one next year. It is a great belt for work and he is pleased with the overall appearance.

Solid shoe, good price
By AMG, from Boston, MA | July 03, 2014

The shoe looks great, feels good but a little bigger than I expected. All in all I'd buy them again especially for the price.

Comfortable Shoes With A Unique Design
By Dave, from Houston, TX | June 24, 2014

Like the idea of a dual purpose design but does not match either purpose. Shoes is slightly longer but width is true to fit with the insole on. Overall shape has a slight bow towards the front which seems to cater towards walking.

  • Shoe Size: Felt half size larger than marked
  • Shoe Width: Felt true to width
  • Wears this shoe: Office

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.
