      I purchased these in the store at the Minneapolis St. Paul Airport. Great service. I wore these right out of the store and my feet immediately felt like a million bucks.

      I had them now for 9 years and they are still in great shape and feel good on my feet (except they need new soles and heels from normal wear).

      Just bought a new pair of wing tips with the trampoline comfort system and they are equally nice.

      Extremely uncomfortable shoes. I've owned these shoes for about four months and hoped they would break in over time, but am sorely disappointed. I am a dedicated J&M shoe buyer, but these shoes absolutely kill your feet when worn. I've given up trying to break them in and now they sit in my closet.

        This is by far the most comfortable dress shoe right out of the box that I've ever put on. No need for break-in. Traditional style won't fall out of fashion, and since it's refurbishable, years down the road when it starts to wear, I can send it in for a complete facelift. Expensive shoe, but well worth it.

        Comments about JohnstonΜrphy Aldrich II Cap Toe:

        I've reviewed this shoe before; it is the best dress shoe I've owned. I'm focusing on the refurbishment in this review. I've owned the shoe for over 20 years and had them resoled (with half soles) and heels at least twice. This is the first time I've ever had these (or any shoe) formally refurbished. I'm glad I did. The shoes, with the premium service, look like new. Always buy a shoe that can be refurbished. And use a refurbishment service of the quality of J&M's. This service was as good as the quality of the Aldrich 2 I've bought (4 pairs- 2 black, 2 brown), as well as the Greenwich wingtip. The trampoline cushioning feature is a big plus.

          I had order the shoe as the store did not stock many C width shoes. My shoes came in about three weeks after the order was places. However when I opened the box one of the shoes was scratched very badly. It looked like it happened during the making of the shoe and not during the shipping. It was so bad that I returned the shoes for a refund. I was very disappointed.

            I have three main shoes for work:
            1x Bostonian Toe & Cap
            1x Allen-Edmunds Park Ave
            1x "This one"

            These give my more expensive Allen-Edmunds a run for their money. Unfortunately, Johnson & Murphy does not offer this shoe in my size (11-1/2 Wide). My choice was a 11-EEE or a 12-EEE with no custom option available. I figure a little loose is better than little tight so I chose the later and have to wear thick sock to keep my foot from floating in them. I wish they offered custom fitting. I am satisfied but took off one star due to limited available sizes. Other than that, I couldn't ask for better.

                Because the color is such a unique brown, we highly recommend using our neutral shoe cream, which goes on clear. This will not discolor your shoes.

            • Q:

              I purchased the Aldrich II Cap-Toe and the salesperson also sold me Johnston and Murphy Cordovan shoe polish. I saw a response from Johnston and Murphy that they recommend Cordovan or Neutral Shoe Polish. Won't the use of cordovan shoe polish change the color of my shoes? I am assuming the neutral polish might cause the color to fade over time. Does Johnston and Murphy see a Dark Cherry shoe polish?

                The cordovan is the closest color match to the dark cherry color shoe.

                A:

                You can use the neutral polish to SHINE your shoes. The correct way to
                polish these shoes is to polish the shoes 3 to 4 times with your cordovan
                polish and then on that 4th or 5th time polish them with black polish.
                These shoes are originally black and over sprayed with cordovan. This is
                how they achieve the marbled antique finish. The shoes will fade with use
                of only neutral. By the same token, if you polish them with only cordovan
                they will develop lighter spots. Neither one is desirable.
