Poor Heel veneer

Pros

  • Good looking

Cons

  • Poor Workmanship

Best Uses

  • Occasional

Comments about JohnstonΜrphy Decatur Plain Toe:

Loved those shoes but they started coming apart at the heel after about six months. I had to glue the leather veneer back on the heel to make them last a few more months. I will not buy the shoes again nor recommend them for a daily wear shoe. This was way too much money to pay for shoe that I barely got a year from.

Comments about JohnstonΜrphy Decatur Plain Toe:

I wear nothing but J&M shoes for casual and work. These shoes regularly receive positive comments for their style from coworkers and friends.

I am very easy on my shoes. I keep cedar shoe trees in them when not wearing them. I keep them clean and polished. I have enough shoes that these get worn regularly but not every day.

My biggest issue with these shoes is they started falling apart within about a year of owning them. Definitely not something I have come to expect from J&M.

I cannot recommend buying this shoe. I know I will not buy it again.

    I like the flexibility of wearing between work and after work. They can be all business all day, then pair them with jeans, a shirt and a casual blazer, then you are set for any after hours activity.

    Arrived before expected and was able to track progress all along the way.

              I have several other pairs of J&M shoes. Will these run the same size as my other shoes?

                All of our J&M shoes run true to size, but depending on the last the shoe is built upon, fit can vary.

            • Q:

              Does the shoe have an elongated toebox? I am looking for a shoe that is not so long at the toe. For instance, I have the Tyndall Wingtips and the toe box is too long for my tastes. How does this compare? Thanks for your help!

                A:

                This shoe is not going to be as long of a toebox as the wingtips. The rounded toe will create less of an elongation, unlike our wingtip style shoes.

            • Q:

              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.

                M is medium width. Both C and D sizes fall within this category.
