            These shoes are really comfortable, I have both the black and brown pair. The black pair is polished and is easy to restore through home care of the shoes. However, the brown pair is extremely difficult to keep clean. The brown leather is a non-polished more dull version and it holds onto and shows dirt easily. The shoes crease in 2-3 places in the toe box and dirt gets into these creases and is incredibly difficult to remove. I bought saddle soap, brown polish, and leather cream from JM and it made them look nice, for about 3 hours. The shoes quickly turn back into a dirty looking mess. To be clear, the black pair are amazing all around, the brown pair are extremely comfortable, but the brown shows dirt like crazy and can't be cleaned easily. Looking at the brown polished hyde park II instead.

              I've been buying Johnston & Murphy for about 4 years now and I've purchased 5 styles thus far and love all 5 styles. The Hartley is smart looking, feels comfortable to walk in and the price is right. I did purchase a half size smaller than I normally would wear based on a previous review and the shoe fit just right. I usually wear a 9, but ordered an 8-1/2 instead. I check the web site for shoes I may like from time to time and usually see something that catches my eye. I'm a customer for life!

                I really liked these shoes overall. Very comfortable. However one of the heels started to separate after 6 months of normal wear. They are in very good condition otherwise. This is the 2nd pair of shoes from J&M I've had an issue with. Will not by buying from them agian.

                    I would choose any of the belts in a similar brown family. You will not find a belt with the exact color match to the shoe, but as long as it is close in color that should work.

                • Q:

                  I have tried on J&M's Bicycle's recently, but have decided to go more formal. I am interested in both the Hartley Plain Toe and the Waverly Wingtips. I am concerned about size, fit and stretch since the 12's seemed a bit tight and maybe a smidge short and the 13's a bit long but felt much better in the width. Both were in Medium or D width. I have a high instep, as well. Would you suggest a 12 Wide or stick with the 13 Mediums?
