    Comments about Johnston & Murphy WATTS HARNESS BOOT:

    I originally bought these boots to use every now and then as something a little nicer to wear out for day-to-day errands or meeting up with friends or family for casual events. However, given that these boots are so comfortable, and this is the winter that will never end in the upper Midwest, I have found myself wearing them more and more often. I even wear them to work with jeans on business casual Fridays in the office, and have even paired them with dress pants on a couple of blizzard days at work. They do not have perfect traction in snowy / icy conditions, but they do provide more traction and more support than any standard dress shoes would provide.
    They are very easy to get on and off, and I think the fit and sizing are dead on. They are comfortable to wear all day, and I think their weight is average (neither heavy nor light). I will say that the lighter brown color arrived much darker than I had expected (I had read that in another review), but I actually love the color.
    Overall, very happy with my purchase!

    BOUGHT ONLINE FOR CASUAL, QUICK TURN AROUND! TOOK ABOUT A WEEK OF BREAK IN, NOW VERY COMFORTABLE. NOT WATERPROOFED OUT OF BOX. TOOK CARE OF THAT ON DAY 1 AND HAVE BEEN WEARING IN THIS WINTER CLIMATE WITH NO WORRIES. FEELS LIKE LIGHT WEIGHT BOOT WITH VERY GOOD SUPPORT AND STABILITY ON SNOW AND ICE. LOOKS GREAT WITH ANY JEAN OUTFIT.

              Loved these boots for two weeks until the zipper jammed so bad I had to cut one off. I tried to get another pair but they were out of stock in my size. J&M refunded full cost of the boots and shipping. Wish they could get more, I would try it again.

                  Selected this boot because of the unique design. Boot seems to wear a little smaller than J & M shoewear so I would recommend going a half size larger.

                    I normally wear a narrow width in your shoes. Since I will be wearing heavier socks with the boot, will the medium width still be too wide?

                      The Watts Harness Boot is not waterproof or water resistant. We recommend using the Leather Protector (item no. 93-400), which will help prevent rain/snow stains. This boot is not mean to last through several inches of snow.
