I have a job in which I am on my feet for 8 hours everyday and these are the best shoes I have ever purchased. I buy two pairs every year and would highly recommend them to anyone.
Very comfortable

Very nice shoe. I like the fact that it is lightweight but waterproof
These really are great shoes, fitting and looking.

I'm a little over the pointy toe thing, so these are a nice alternative while also being a little trendy.

These shoes are very comfortable. I wear them to work. They look professional and sharp plus they are comfortable for taking a walk at lunch time.

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.
