I've had the Decatur for several weeks, one of a dozen JM pairs in my closet. This shoe is a great one for style and value. The finish is beautiful and the burnished details belong on something twice the price. I wear them with jeans mostly using the khaki laces. Classy and casual. Break in time is minimal. The sole is a little hard on feet at first, you may need to get used to that. Highly recommend these plain toe Decaturs!
