    Nice Shoes

    Posted by TY Yap on 1st Jul 2017

    I ordered these in May 2017, after an email exchange with the company regarding availability of width for my feet (based on my question, they recommended a width that was not an option on the site - they happened to have stock of the shoes at the size/width I wanted, but were otherwise able to make a pair for me in 2-3 weeks). I received the shoes in Singapore in about a week's time.

    The fit was good. I have worn the shoes about twice a week since getting them, except for a few days of everyday wear when I wore them for an overseas business trip (with fair amount of walking and exposure to the elements). The shoes have not creased much, and have been polished only one time.

    On the leather soles, my preference initially was that they would not have been painted black, since the paint on the forepart would be gone once the shoes are used. However, I now appreciate it as the heels have an all rubber top piece (black) and so it is a continuous black color from the heel to where the sole gets scruffed - I now think it is a somewhat elegant two-toned look between the forepart and backpart of the soles. (The black paint might have slightly soiled my carpet though, so one might want to take care of when to wear them on light colored carpets.)

    Subsequent to this first pair from John Doe Shoes, I ordered a second pair of black pebbled grain Bennington oxfords - these have been taken off the website as I got the last pair (again, emails exchanged with the company on whether I could get a pair my width - they didn't have any more stock of the black pebble grain, so they could not make any more..). I really liked the look of the shoes on the website, and so took the chance - they arrived in about a week, and were snug but fit. I have not used the shoes yet, but I like the unique look of the pebble grain brogues very much.

    About the shoe laces, the first pair and second pair came in laces of different lengths - the laces on the first pair were very long (90cm) and those on the second pair were just good (60cm).

    High quality cap toe oxfords

    Posted by Adrian on 24th May 2017

    I am, frankly, delighted with my cap toe oxfords. The construction is solid, the fit is true-to-size, and the leather is supple and clearly of high quality. I plan to buy a brown pair, and to exposure the suede derbys.

    Great product

    Wore it for the first time this past weekend and love it. A bit heavy, but the quality of the leather is evident. Great product!

    Great Service and Well Made

    Posted by Unknown on 6th Feb 2017

    The shoes are well made, very solid, and nicely finished. The company was also very helpful as I tried to figure out my size and ended up ordering two different sizes and returning one. Customer service was top notch. Takes a bit to break them, probably because of the stronger materials than most.

    Best value in shoes you can get.

    Posted by Eli (Edmonton, Canada) on 28th Dec 2016

    I Live in Canada and finding good-quality Goodyear shoes here is difficult. I used to go though shoes on an annual (sometimes semi-annual) basis until I started buying Goodyear shoes. The John Doe Bonucci Oxfords was the first pair of Goodyear shoes I bought, more than two years ago. Since then, I have bought more expensive Goodyear shoes (Florsheim Imperial, Meermin and Allen Edmonds). My JD black Bonucci Oxfords are one of the most comfortable pair of shoes I own and my go-to shoes for when I want to look both professional and being most comfortable. Shoes that are twice as expensive do not deliver as much in these two fronts.

    So, why not 5 stars, then?

    As described by other reviewers, even though the materials and the fitting are top-notch, the attention to detail in and quality in constructing my Bonucci Oxfords could have been better. In one of my shoes, for example, the joints in the black leather in the upper (around the lace-up area) do not go all the way through (there is a gap between the pieces of black leather), allowing some of the brown leather from the inside to be noticeable. It is a small imperfection and not a big deal, but my other more expensive shoes do not have small quality issues of this sort. Another example is that in my 2014 JD Bonucci models, the eyelets for the laces lacked metal rings that would protect the leather in the upper from the pressure exerted by the laces. This makes me worry that the upper around the eyelets may fail in the future. Florsheim, Meermin and Allen Edmonds make this metal eyelet rings standard in their Goodyear shoes to increase durability.

    All in all, I love my JD black Bonucci Oxfords and I'm happy I gave them a try two years ago. I look forward to many more years of continue enjoyment of them and to go back to trying this brand in the future.

    Love them

    Posted by Ives Bezerra on 5th Sep 2016

    These shoes are just great! They are as comfortable as possible for oxfords, the leather eh very sturdy, so is are the soles. I like the design, but the laces are kinda of poor quality, with every shining, you have to take them off, that is degrading them quicker than I thought. Overall these shoes are gorgeous are of very good quality, I definitely recommend buying them
    OBS: I love their smell of new shoes.

    GREAT SHOES. GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE. VERY IMPRESSED!!!

    Posted by Kunle E. on 4th Mar 2016

    Now, where do I start from?
    Spent about 2 weeks researching shoes online. Finally stumbled on a forum thread talking about John Doe Shoes, and decided to visit the website. The customer service I received is superb. All my inquiries were promptly responded to and resolved. Shipping was also very fast. In fact, John Doe Shoes went out of their way to meet my stringent shipping requirements.

    Now to the shoes.
    The shoes are fabulous. Very well made. Great attention to detail. These shoes look way more than their price.
    I'm very happy with my purchase, and look forward to ordering my next pair. I'll try to upload pictures later, if possible.
    Thank you John Doe Shoes.

    Professionally-Made

    Posted by Nick on 9th Dec 2015

    These are the finest shoes I have owned. I did hours of research, and the only thing close costs hundreds more. I now own two pairs of John Doe shoes, and I look forward to handing them down to my son when he grows up.
