I cannot say enough good things about Johnston and Murphy, and the shopping experiences both on the website and in the brick and mortar stores that are peppered across the country. What is truly amazing about Johnston and Murphy is that it was started in 1850, and yet it is still relevant today. Its business was based originally on shoes and luggage, but it has since branched out to clothing, outerwear, and accessories, and what Johnston and Murphy chooses to do, they definitely do well. But frankly, what I like about this store the most is that it offers high quality merchandise without all the hassle I experience at many of the other retailers.
If I'm shopping for myself, it's ALL about the shoes at Johnston and Murphy. Their shoe game is on point (which makes sense, given that its the brand's specialty.)Yes, the company started as a men's shoe store, but the women's shoes are no afterthought. The selection is vast and varied, everything from cute and casual slip-ons to gorgeous luxury leather boots, to sneakers. And the women's clothing is equally non-afterthought status. You'll be pleasantly surprised by the variety of unique and stylish pieces.
One of the best things about Johnston and Murphy is that I can get items for my whole family and even extended family here, and I know the items are going to be of the highest caliber. In fact, the XC4 golf shoes I bought my husband over two years ago are still as sturdy as brand new, even though he generally spends a lot of time in the rough in a typical golf game! And my Mom swears by the Mollie bootie, (her preference is black but I like the suede best), and even the harsh Chicago winters are no match for them. It's my son, though, who is currently the biggest fan. As a new college student, he has been doing a lot of flying home for breaks, and the briefcase is the perfect size to pack his computer, but also a few other essentials to get him on the road back to us. He swears by it!
As for me (and at the end of the day, don’t we all like a few new personal items), I enjoy several of the clothing trends that Johnston and Murphy offers. Specifically, I am partial to the fly-away cardigan and the double-face knit blazer. Both of these comfortable and chic items make getting dressed for my teaching day seem effortless. And they are comfortable and functional throughout my entire work day.
At the end of the day, although I am still not that big of a fan of shopping, Johnston and Murphy is still a winner in my book. That is because I can easily shop in the comfort of my own home, wearing my Johnston and Murphy loungewear on my couch while I do so. With free shipping on any order over $50, free returns, and the ability to try any item risk free for 60 days, there really is nothing to lose. These little perks truly mean a lot to me.
The website makes it easy to shop with many ways to filter, a sizing guide, and even a J & M Insider program that helps me to get some great deals. There are also coupons and promotions that I can utilize at various times throughout the year, because with a kid in college I can surely use all the help I can get!
If you are looking for a company you can count on that has been going solid for 170 years, look no further than Johnston and Murphy and their distinct, superior shoes, clothing, and luggage. You will have a superior shopping experience and will be very pleased with your merchandise.
