    First, much thanks to all previous helpful info from everyone.

    I wonder if there is experience with the J. Murphy line form Johnston & Murphy ? Are they similar to Crown Aristocrats or more like Meltons ? From the pictures attached, the leather looks good, and they appear to be welted. In addition to quaity concerns, I'm also interested in comfort. Thanks very much.

    I use J&M for bad weather days/other beater purposes. Most of them are more comfortable than most of my AE's. But yes, serious quality issues. J. Murphy also appears to be a line they sell at Men's Wearhouse which does not bode well.

    Not a fan of the idea of used shoes in general, but I would really caution against buying preowned J&M.
