                      Comments about Johnston & Murphy DECATUR PLAIN TOE:

                      These are my go-to shoes for semi-professional settings (e.g., on campus with my colleagues, meetings, etc.) and sometimes for going out.

                      Going out to a concert in these is not the best ideas; I definitely felt fatigue in my feet after standing for 4 hours.

                      Still, these look great and add to a polished look when one is not wearing a suit.

                        I usually buy 11.5 C size in J&M shoes. Why does this come in 11.5M only? I am assuming the M width is a wider width.
