I have worn Johnston & Murphy shoes for work for 10+ years owning multiple pairs through the years. I am slightly disappointed with these shoes due to the fact that when I have bought shoes in the past, they are comfortable right out of the box. I'm not sure if they have changed something with the shoes, but the first few times I have worn them, my feet have been relieved when I take them off at the end of the day. I have a desk job and am not on my feet all that much during the day. I am hoping that it just takes some time to break in.
