    Great fit right out of the box. Ordered my normal size, and it fit perfect. This shoe will work for any occasion or setting. It's well made, and I was able to break them in after wearing them for a few days. I would definitely buy another pair should these wear out. Really happy with the look and style.

      I ORIGINALLY BOUGHT A ATCHISON CAP TOE BULCHER FROM JOHNSTON&MURPHY ON LINE. THE SHOE WAS A TERRIBLE FIT AND POOR QUALITY. I RETURNED THE SHOE TO JOHNSTON&MURPHY STORE LAKESIDE SHOPPING CENTER METAIRIE LA.70002. THE MANAGER SCOTT CONNER GAVE ME EXCELLENT SERVICE. HE WAS VERY PROFESSIONAL . HE WENT ABOVE AND BEYOND TO SATISFY MY COMPLAINT AND RECOMMEND AN EXCELLENT REPLACEMENT. I SHALL ALWAYS CONTINUE TO BUY JOHNSTON&MURPHY SHOES.

            I had previously owned two different pairs of Johnston & Murphy shoes. But after the Great Recession hit, I had to "settle" for a pair of Bostonians until a few weeks ago when I purchased my third pair. What a difference!!! The J&M's are so much more substanial shoes. Also, I have a thin heel, and the custom sizing options offered by J&M makes all the difference in how comfortable the shoes fit. I'm glad to be back wearing Johnston & Murphy shoes!!!

            • Q:

              My Melton Cap-Toe shoes are a few years old but I have stopped wearing them because they squeak with every step. Will refurbishing help eliminate the squeak? Would it also be possible to replace the fiberglass shank with the traditional metal one? They provided better support.

                Refurbishment should rid your Melton Cap-Toe shoes of the squeak as it is most like caused by a loose shank. All of our shanks are fiberglass and we do not have steel shanks available.

                The Melton Cap-Toe features the Optima Comfort System which involves a multi-layered soft, cushioned insole, whereas the Hyde Park II Cap-Toe in constructed using the Trampoline Comfort System. The Trampoline Comfort System features the a cork midsole which, over time, forms to the foot and is a much more costly material.

                A:

                hello Frank, I wear a 13EE myself. I have owned the Melton cap-toe and the
                waverly wingtip and was happy with the shoes, there are some other options
                but it's a different shoe design and a step up in price to $275. With these
                I higly recommend going into a j&m store to try them on because they are
                built off of the trampoline cushion system and are more snug vs the melton
                and waverly that are built off the comfort cushion system.

              Hi. I recently purchased the Hannigan Cap Toe and the 9.5 was a perfect fit. I am going to be purchasing the Melton Toe Cap and was wondering what size and width is comparable? Thank you so much.

                A:

                I would say that the shoe runs true to size, so you'll probably order the
                same size shoe as you did the Hannigan cap.

              • A:

                Assuming you wear a 9.5 M in Hannigan Cap Toe, size 9.5 D in Melton Cap-Toe would offer the best fit.

                A:

                In my experience, the J&M Melton Cap-Toe shoe is one of this best made made men's shoes you can find for $200.00. It has a slightly narrower fit and the toe box is slightly elongated, these (2) style features add distinction and with its superior finish a classic business and even foal attire pair of shoes. Wear them with confidence.

                In order to determine the appropriate legnth of laces, multiply three time the amount of eyelets, plus 12. A 30" lace would work great for this shoe.
