      I love the design of the shoe. The look and affordable price drew me in.
      The first time I wore them they rubbed blisters on my ankles. I applied padding and band aids for the next outing hoping to just break them in. Got blisters on that one too. I'll let my ankles heal and give it another shot. I own 6 pair of J&M shoes and this was the first to give me issues.

      Very nice. Love the vintage look and style. Needs a bit of break in, about a week or two, but they are starting to break in nicely now and are becoming more and more comfortable with each passing day - so be patient. These are my go-to shoes for business casual. Thanks for supplying the extra pair of dark laces. Will come in handy when I want to dress them up.

            • Q:

              I have a pair of 8.5 Shuler Bicycle Toe that have to be about 8 years old and have always fit great. How does the Decatur Wingtip compare? Also, my feet are on the narrow-ish side. Can you recommend a size in the Decatur?

                A:

                The Shuler Bicycle is one of our most popular styles. It is known for its comfort, feel, and flexibility. The Decatur Wingtip will not be as comfortable as the Shuler. It does come with a full-length padded footbed and has superior flexibility. The Decatur is also more dressy than the Shuler.

                The Decatur is not available in a narrow width, we only carry Medium width. Medium falls in between Narrow & Wide.

            • Q:

              I have the Waverly Wingtip Oxford shoe in a 9.5 D and it fits my foot like a glove. Will this shoe in a 9.5 M fit the same? I previously purchased a similar J&M 9.5 M italian made shoe and it was a bit too narrow for me. The length was fine though.

              • A:

                These shoes will fit very similarly to the Waverly Oxford shoes. They run true-to-size, but can be a bit on the narrow-side. I would stick to the same size if that worked for you. There is a free return slip in the box if they don't work out.

                Italian made shoes have a more narrow cut. The Decatur Wingtip should fit fine.

            • Q:

              I bought this shoe along with the J & M leather balm. My question is that the leather balm says not to use on suede and the product description says the Decatur Wingtip is "Italian calfskin and waxed suede". So, may I use the leather balm, or (and I feel stupid, as the wording seems plainly prohibitory) not on this shoe?

              1 answer

              • A:

                You can use the balm because it is waxed suede, which is suede that has already been treated/polished. This is different from the regular, brushed suede that has not been treated.

                No, the website allows you to filter your searches. The simplest way is by clicking Shoes, then Mens. Just above the pictures, you will see a search filter. This allows you to choose narrow width, as well as desired color, size, and occasion if you wish.

                Polishing shoes can be tricky since certain colors are harder to polish than others. I would recommend using a clear wax to keep the shoe rich in color.
