Perfect craftsmanship, translated into a work of art. Once you take them out of the box you’ll fall in love with the sleek line and the smooth leather. You may even don’t want to step into them. But don’t worry, these are goodyear welted and now with top quality made in the USA full grain leather. You’ll have in your feet a pair of beautiful shoes for many years to come.
I previously reviewed this product and was disappointed to have received the wrong color. Customer service was exceedingly fast in resolving my issue (answered an after-hours email on a weekend). The shoes I received to correct the order are fantastic - classic, well-constructed, stylish, well-fitting, and comfortable. Amazing product!
I live in a smaller town, so my selection of shoe stores is pretty limited. I had just bought a suit and I wanted to find a decent pair of shoes. I did some research and found out what a good pair of shoes should look like, but again, could not find any shoes in my area. I was a bit hesitant about buying a pair of shoes online and I was coming up to the deadline when I would need them. I was unsure if they would arrive on time, I didn't know what to expect but I had gotten the name of this company from an article I found about good quality shoes for a decent price. These shoes claim to be made of full grain leather, and made using Goodyear Welting, so I decided to take a chance on them. They arrived exactly when expected and right on time for the even I needed to be at, despite being shipped directly from Mexico City. I tried them on and instantly knew I liked these shoes. They slid on my feet and just felt like they were giving my feet a gently snuggling hug. I hope they end up lasting a long time because I am really happy with them. The only reason I gave it four stars is because I had an issue with one of the eyelets the laces go through. I tightened my shoes and it started to rip through the leather there. I didn't rip all the way through, thanks to some stitching around the edge of the leather, but it was still slightly annoying. Not big enough to return, and it doesn't take away from the comfort of the shoes. I think I will take it to a local cobbler to see if they can reinforce that area to avoid this in the future.
This is my second pair of John Doe shoes. I love the quality and feel of these shoes. Right out of the box with no additional insole these shoes were comfortable all day long. Now that I have a black and brown pair of oxfords. I need to figure out how I can justify to my wife that I need a cordovan pair too.
Came out of the box looking and feeling perfect. Immediately wore them to an event I had that night and was really happy with the comfort and look.
These fit true to size and look exquisite, they feel comfortable and aren't too stiff or clunky. At first glance you can see a difference in quality when compared to j&m aristocraft. Will be buying more shoes here for sure! There were some small marks on the leather but in places where they won't affect the appearance of the shoe. The bottom of the sole has some scratch looking marks, but other than that and short shoe laces, they're in perfect shape and you can really see the quality in the make of this shoe.
This product is more than I expected, they look even better in person! Shipping was fast although the handling of the product could've been better, the shoes still arrived in great condition The fit is true to size and the shoes are quite comfortable as well. I wore them several times for the whole day without feeling any pain. Satisfied with my purchase, I will most likely buy another pair of shoes from here again.
