      I wear these for work at least 3 times per week and also when I need to dress for special occasions. The only thing I am not happy with are the laces. The knot will not stayed tied no matter what I do. Other than that they are great shoes.

            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.

              • Q:

                I used the measuring chart and the width of my size 15 foot lies directly on the white line between "WC" and "WB" markings on the left foot and about 1 millimeter into the WC column on my right foot. The Melton cap toe is only available in 15D and 15EEE. Would I be okay if I ordered a 15D?

                  A:

                  Hello, if you are measured as a size 15W I would not suggest getting a size 15D because this size is equivalent to a Medium width. If you would still like to try the size 15D or 15EEE you may do so. We do offer free returns/exchanges so you may return the item for a refund if it does not fit properly.

                  A size 9 would be approximately 26 cm and a size 9.5 would be 26.7 cm. I would suggest trying the 9.5M and if this size does not work we do offer free returns and exchanges.

                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?

                  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.

                • 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.

                  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.
