I would not buy again.


I love the look and fit of these shoes. But like another poster noted before the sole wears out very fast. My shoes range from cheap runners to expensive dress shoes. The soles on these shoes have worn out faster than any of my other pairs. There is a quality issue with the soles. This has been my first purchase of J & M shoes. I decided to give them a try because I was attracted to the look and feel. I am disappointed in the quality of these shoes, especially at the relatively high price point.


El Paso Texas




I have owned well over a dozen pairs of J&M shoes, all of which have been stylish, comfortable, and well constructed. All of those prior owned shoes have latest a very long time, many of which are still in my shoe rotation today. Unfortunately the quality and construction on this latest pair of shoes has been disappointing. I purchased these shoes a short while ago, on July 26, 2017, and they are already showing considerable wear. I wear these shoes no more than 3 times a week, and the wear that is evident in less than 3 months is uncharacteristic for J&M shoes. The backs of the heels are completely worn, the grey rubber around the bottom of the shoes, at the heels, has completely come apart from the rest of the shoe, and now I'm starting to notice the white rubber sole coming apart from the leather upper, near the toes of both shoes. The shoes are stylish and go well with a business casual attire. But the comfort level of the shoes is below average, especially given I was expecting more of a sneaker type feel. The price point of this shoe is not worth the life-span nor the comfort level.

Great shoe, dresses up or down


love Johnston & murphy shoes




Great looking & fitting shoes that I wish were more durable


I just ordered my fourth pair of these. That's both an indication that I really like these shoes, as well as an indication that they wear really fast. I really like the style, fit and comfort. However, while wearing them maybe 3 days a week, the soles start tearing in under 10 months, and the laces give out way before that even.






Unbelievably comfortable J&M casual sneakers! These are without question the best shoes I've ever bought, and they're so light weight that it's like not even wearing shoes! These are stylish with shorts and a polo, jeans and a collard shirt, or even with dressier jeans and a slim cut sport coat that is the style now for men on a date night! No reason to question yourself on this purchase!!

Great casual everyday and every situation shoe


Lots of positive comments from co-workers, friends and wife. Goes with any casual situation and most any attire. Get the suede protector to go with it - keeps the 'kicks' clean.


Charlotte, NC


Great Styling, very comfortable but wish the sole held up


I love the look of this shoe and have received lots of good comments on how they look. My goal in purchasing the Allistar sneaker was the hope that with a higher-end quality sneaker made by Johnston and Murphy I would be able to keep a pair longer. I usually but through converses pretty quickly and was hoping what looked like a robust sole design and J&Ms quality would mean I would have a shoe that would last more than one season. However two months into wearing these the sole has started to come apart. I attached a photo below, sometimes the gray rubber flips over creating an uneven surface. So while the leather tops are holding up and can be cleaned, polished and taken care of there is nothing I can do to keep the soles together except, I guess, not wear the shoe. Its a shame since they look great and are super comfortable but I think they are only lasting a little longer than a pair of converses but for more than twice the cost.

Once again, love product!


Liked shoes so much - I stained the suede the first week and re-ordered right away while still on great summer sale!




Bought a second pair


Very comfortable and I like the way it looks (Navy). I do think the soles wore out pretty quickly which would be my only real complaint. I did end up getting a second pair once the first was worn too far.

More like this needed


tennis shoes offer the benefit of being comfortable, but until recently, they don't go well with suits. Times have changed, and Johnston and Murphy have made a suede tennis shoe that is comfortable and stylish. To my knowledge, there is only one other company that does this, and their shoe is not quite as comfortable.
