        Comments about Johnston & Murphy Melton Cap Toe:

        I bought the Melton Cap toe in both Tan & Black to go with different suits for different occasions. Both pair are beautifully made with quality construction and are comfortable right out of the box, no break-in period required. They also look great dressed-down a bit with chinos or jeans. The black is classic, and the tan is the perfect shade - not too dark of a tan, not too light, looks great with a blue suit and the J&M tan dress belt. I get compliments on these shoes every time I wear them, & I could not be more pleased with my purchase. I highly recommend these shoes!

        Look, this is a great pair of basic dress shoes that everyone should have. Day 2 of wearing is the worst - the leather doesn't soften evenly and can push on your feet but it gets way better by day 3. They are quite shiny so keep that in mind if pairing with your clothing. Best quality for $ thus far.

          Comments about Johnston & Murphy Melton Cap Toe:

          I used the shoe for travel along with other J&M shoes. This is the newest shoe I have of the ten. Shoe #9 also wore out on the sole and came apart. J&M will not back their shoes. Do NOT buy if you wear dress shoes for travel. Their quality has been sacrificed in order to reduce production costs.

            I own several pairs of J&M shoes, however the recent models appear to be garbage. Two of mine separated at the sole, poor workmanship. I will move up to a $350-$500 pair of shoes but it will not be J&M.

              I received a pair in the mail of 10B. They are a little snug in terms of the width (but perfect in length). Will the shoes stretch a little bit? How do I know if they are too narrow?

                A:

                The shoes can break in after little wear, if they are too snug you can exchange them for free using the UPS prepaid return label that came in the box and try a 10C.

              How much space should there be between end of toe and end of the shoe to ensure good fit?

              1 answer

              • A:

                There should be about a 1/2 inch between the end of your longest toe and the end of the front of the shoe. Ideally you measure your foot towards the end of the day and while standing for proper measurment.

              • A:

                Just a slight clarification on this. I emailed J&M about this, and was told it is full grain and hand polished, which is different from corrected grain. They said all their calf skin uppers are full grain for that matter.

            • Q:

              I ordered my J&M Melton online. The tongue is stitched close to the laces near the top of the tongue on the inner side of each shoe. Is this normal, or did I get a defective shoe? It makes it hard to lace, but more importantly (and frequently) harder to spread wide to put on.

                A:

                The Melton Cap-Toe's tongue is stitched close to the laces. All of our J&M shoes should be put on with a shoe horn. It makes it easier to get the shoe on without stretching the shoe.

                If you are still having trouble with the shoe, we can send you a pre-paid shipping label for a return or exchange.

                A:

                Unfortunately, we do not have a 12.5 size which is what I would have recommended. However, I believe a size 13 would be too generous, so I would order a 12. Depending on if you have a wider foot, then I would order a 12 EE, OR, if your foot is not wide, go with the 12 D. We do offer free returns if you need to change the size.
