Really, Really Comfortable!
Shuler Bicycle Review:
Style is stylish but conservative - people actually comment on how good they look! Never before received any shoe compliments in my life!
Very nice bit
Conard Wingtip Boot Review:
Boots were uncomfortable the first wear and caused blisters on both feet, but the leather has since broken in and that fit like a charm. Really stylish pair of boots. I hope they last for years!
This is a great boot and great price I love it.

Beautiful and comfortable- plan to buy in black.
Jill Review:
So comfortable I wore them 3 days in a row after I took them out of the box. I can go from yoga to a night out on the town in these shoes. I also plan on purchasing the black pair. Most of the time really comfortable shoe are not very attractive - THESE ARE. My boyfriend even likes them. I wear a size 9 and that is the size I ordered - perfect fit.
Great shoes
Tilden Slip-On Review:
Wore them the first time to a musical performance that I was part of in a brass ensemble at an unfamiliar church. I felt confident and well dressed in these shoes.

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.
