Comments about Johnston & Murphy WESTCHESTER TASSEL:

The shoes are absolutely beautiful and of the highest quality. i have only had the shoes for about 1 week and need more time to evaluate the fit and comfort of the shoe. I wear about 4 different shoes each week so it will take me a couple of months to really judge my satisfaction level with the shoe.
I returned the shoe 2 X for sizing and was really surprised and pleased with easy of return and the quick turn around--Absolutely "No Hassel".

      Looking for a well-made dress loafer, good for suits or slacks, and this fit the bill. Very elegant, clearly well made. I have a high degree of confidence I will have them for a long time...but, like any high quality dress shoe, there is a breaking in period. It's been just over two weeks and they are starting to relax, but I feel it will be a little bit longer before I want to 'live' in them.
      Very happy I have them, and soon, will be happy to wear them!

          A:

          The difference is the cushioning system. The Westchester has a cork mid-sole which offers superior support and cushioned comfort that molds specifically to your foot. The Deerfield has the Trampoline Comfort System which features a foam cushioning and comfort.

      • Q:

        Want to purchase the Westchester Tassel but am worried about size without trying on. Some years ago I bought JM "Cellini" lace shoes at size 11M and they fit fine. But, reviews of Westchester Tassel suggest buying a 1/2 size down.
        Two questions:
        1)Should I purchase the 11's or the 10.5's?
        2)If I am not happy with the size can I return even if bought on sale?
        Thank you.
