The Crown Aristocraft was the pinnacle of Johnston & Murphy shoemaking. This is a calfskin shoe, made--at that time--almost entirely by hand. After the early 1990s, the Crown slipped in both quality of shoemaking, and in quality of materials used. At the time this one was made, however, the Crown Aristocraft rivaled any shoe made in America. The last Crown was made in the USA several years ago. Today, Johnston Murphy shoes are made off-shore, and have virtually nothing to do with their proud heritage.
