    Comments about Johnston & Murphy HARTLEY PLAIN TOE:

    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 use this shoe for work (semi-formal) and it looks and feels great. The only downside is that it takes some effort to upkeep its form. The leather also is crease-prone (which is probably true for all leather shoes). Anyways, I like the shoe and would definitely buy another pair once these wear out.

        I wear this shoe two or three times a week. Goes well with my blue and grey suits for work. Also wearable weekends with Ralph Lauren trousers and a blazer when with my girlfriend. They are right now my favorite shoe. Attractive profile and a handsome shade of brown. I'm not too fond of lighter browns or reddish ones and love distressed or natural looks and this clean shape and darker shade of brown is perfect for me. Quite comfortable, although I will say that after an 11 hour day at the office, when I spent over half of it standing or walking I noticed some discomfort at the toe on the outside. But I have wide feet and this only happened once. My black J&M Aldrich II are better padded, but this one is still nice enough and costs less than those did while still having a proper sole (I don't wear a fused suit to work and I won't wear some gummy shoe either).

            Comments about Johnston & Murphy HARTLEY PLAIN TOE:

            The Hartley is a stylish and VERY comfortable shoe. The calf leather is very soft and you MUST use shoe trees. MUST!!! Since the leather is very soft it will crease very easily and using shoe trees will prevent permanent creasing.

            I would not recommend this for something you would wear 5 days a week. They need to be taken care of, rested (not worn in consecutive days), and polished frequently.

            If you do the above you will have a great looking pair of classic shoes. I would totally buy another pair.

                        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?
