    Bought these shoes to go with a new custom tailored suit. They make the perfect pair. I should have sent the shoes back and gotten a B width instead of a D width. Other than MY mistake, the shoes are perfect and I would buy another pair of J & M's without hesitation.

      The shoe itself is very comfortable and attractive. But, in under a year the sole of both shoes has a large hole in it. For a shoe costing almost $400.00 this is not acceptable.

      The shoes are nice looking. They pinched the arch of my foot during the break-in period, but are now comfortable. The uppers are wearing well, but the soles are wearing through with only a year of wear. I bought this top of the line shoe because shoes recently purchased from J/M did not wear as well as older J/M shoes. It seems that their shoes just aren't made as well as they once were.

          Use this product for office environment and travel, meetings with clients. While I have always bought J&M shoes, this is the first time I bought the Georgetown II. The extra money gets you a higher quality shoe that will look better and last longer than the lesser models.

          For me, break-in period was 2 daysat 3-4 hours each time, then went to full days just fine.

          Comments about Johnston & Murphy GEORGETOWN II CAP-TOE:

          I am a long time J&M customer. After considering for the last couple purchases, I recently decided to buy the top of the line, American made shoe. Unfortunately, the left shoe is built in such a manner that I can feel the front edge of the heel pressing uncomfortably into the sole of my foot from below. I had hoped that this was part of the breaking in but at this point I just have the constant discomfort on the one foot. I am convinced this is a quality issue. I am hoping a supplemental cushion might help. I might recommend J&M because I have loved the shoes, but not this model.

          • Q:

            I have a relatively new pair of these shoes that I have only worn perhaps a dozen times. My house burned down yet these shoes were not burned, but have a heavy smoke smell to them. They still look brand new, and I am wondering if there is anything I can do to get the smell out of them. Any suggestions?

            • A:

              You can try cleaning as best as possible, allowing them to air out, and then inserting fabric softener sheets into the shoes (or even into a zip lock bag with the shoes.)

              Of the three widths mentioned, the "B" is the most narrow progressing up to the "D", which would be considered medium width.

            • A:

              There are a few differences between the two. The Georgetown has more lacing holes, has a cork midsole and is only available in black. The Hyde Park uses the Trampoline Cushioning System and is available in both Black Calf and Tan Calf.

              A:

              The Hyde park is in the trampoline comfort system. It's comprised of two different densities of poron foam layered in the forefoot with a cork midsole and a heel to toe EVA foam. The Georgetown is in the crown aristocrat series and has a full cork foot bed. In my opinion the trampoline comfort system can't be beat. It's used in the custom select program as well which has more style, color, and size options available to you. If you're willing to spend the money on the Georgetown spend just a little more and get the custom select, the value for money us much better than the aristocrafts. <a href="http://overview.mail.yahoo.com?.src=iOS"><br/><br/>Sent from Yahoo Mail for iPhone</a>
