The style and comfort are great! The leather is soft and smooth. The fact that they are made in America is a plus. I wear them primarily to work and have found no cons. Great pair of shoes!

    The heel feels a little loose but I think that is driven more by my foot…much wider at the front relative to the rear…. as I have had the same problem with other shoes….but less of an issue with these.

        Comments about Johnston & Murphy Westchester Tassel:

        This is a great shoe. I have owned the Westchester for 15 years. I also own a competitor's Grayson model which is a comparable shoe. The Westchester is a very comfortable shoe and more durable shoe that the other shoe. I would buy this shoe over the other anytime.

        I have just received the shoe back from the company's refurbishment program, the second refurbishment on the shoe, after only 2 weeks. I workmanship was excellent, although i would not recommend the added back counters. They do not add to the shoe or fit.

        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".

            Unfortunately, this shoe is unavailable in a 9A. We do recommend the Custom Select program. The closest to a tan would be the Antique Chestnut European Calf. Style number 24-0072.

            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.
