    I have been a longtime lurker. Finally signed up because I have a question on a pair of Johnson and Murphy Aristocraft shoes that I came upon. Does anyone have any insight about these shoes? I just polished them up, and they are pretty funky but I picked them up because they have a vintage peculiarity that I kind of like. I have been looking through various threads and have been searching google for vintage JM but don't seem to have any luck finding this specific type. I appreciate it.

    They're peculiar, all right. Those almost certainly came from the 1970s, and were designed under the influence of certain illicit substances. They're very well made atrocities.

    Well stated.

    I would normally advocate for aristocrafts... but not these...
