Timeless looks that will never go out of style
"Ask any woman and she’ll laud the tale of her perfect shoes – who made them, where she’s been, what kinds of adventures they’ve taken her on. Johnston & Murphy creates quality shoes with a beautiful aesthetic for the fashionable and classic woman and their perfect styles cause passersby to stop you on the street to ask, “Where’d you get those?” The patent Bordeaux loafers are your perfect slip-ons." -- StephanieHoney N Silk

"The elegant bootie asserts the captivating spark you are. So grab your perfect heel and flaunt your well-lived life." -- Stephanie, Honey N Silk

"Like most people, I normally get dressed from top to bottom, head to toe. I decide on an outfit and then I figure out what shoes complement the look best...For the first look, I started with these slip-ons. Even though they're really casual, the gold metallic coloring makes them a really cute statement shoe." -- BlakeBlake Von D

BUY IT
"I love a good sneaker/dress combo! I've had this sweater dress for over and year and it doesn't get much wear so I figured now was as good a time as any. On its own, the dress and sneakers are pretty casual, but because I went casual with the first look, I wanted to dress it up just a bit. Think of an "after work happy hour, but I live in the city and I've been wearing heels all day" kinda of look." -- BlakeBlake Von D

"Fall is here, y'all, and I couldn't be more excited about it! I'm thrilled to partner with Johnston & Murphy today to show you how to take some of my fave items from their new arrivals into the fall season! I love these teak braided booties! They're wedged and have fab quality -- plus, they are seriously so comfortable, while still somehow maintaining its chic look." -- Grace, A Southern Drawl
BUY IT
"I'm also really digging these riding boots -- you can't start fall without a staple pair of tall boots, and these are the perfect ones for the job.  No joke, they make me feel like I can conquer all fall has to offer, including hay rides, hot apple cider, pumpkin patches, and more." -- GraceA Southern Drawl

"I’ve had my eyes on a pair of black loafers for the longest time. While I love my brown loafers, black loafers–especially these patent ones – totally class up casual outfits and give ’em that extra pop. Oh, and did I mention that they’re insanely comfortable and don’t rub? And it’s official: I’m sweater vest-obsessed this year. This one from Johnston & Murphy, though, is my absolute favorite." -- KellyKelly in the City
BUY IT
"Because it’s finally that time of year, and there’s just nothing like a pair of quality, versatile boots! And this pair is quality. You know that awesome smell you get when you take a pair of great leather shoes out of the box for the first time? Well, these beauties take the cake. ;) Sigh…" -- KellyKelly in the City

"I'm prepping my fall wardrobe with Johnston & Murphy and am so excited about the cooler temps! The best time of the year! And I couldn't be happier with these new Johnston & Murphy black pumps - they're the perfect height so I can walk in them all night!" -- ChassityLook Linger Love

BUY IT
"I really wanted a great pair of penny loafers and these patent flats are pretty much the perfect color for wearing with everything from jeans to dresses. And this Johnston & Murphy sweater vest is helping me with the transitional days when I still need short sleeves! It comes with a belt, too." -- ChassityLook Linger Love

"Guys, I’ve found the most perfect classic fall bootie. For a couple years now, I’ve been slowly growing my collection, but there was always something missing: the classic teak heeled bootie. I love that this pair of shoes elevates the look a bit. The high quality of these ankle boots from Johnston & Murphy take the entire look up a notch." -- MeganLush to Blush
BUY IT
"But of course, I’m not always in a high heel mood, so it’s great to have a solid pair of flat booties for fall as well. Sine I covered the timeless bootie with the teak pair, I went with something a little more trendy, yet still classic: a suede flat bootie in a gorgeous wine color." -- Megan, Lush to Blush
BUY IT

"Opting for something more casual this season? Adapt the menswear trend for yourself and pair oxford style flats with fit n’ flare dresses for a fun, Parisian inspired look that can take you from day to night in style and blister free!" -- KrystinSuburban Faux Pas

"These peep toe booties are a great neutral shade and are a comfortable heel height – perfect for my working ladies who need a great transitional pump that can get them from their 9-5 ;) -- Krystin Suburban Faux Pas
BUY IT
"When planning my outfit, I typically choose one focal piece and create the rest my look around it. An ankle bootie is my must-have for a more relaxed and casual style and works well for running errands or meeting a friend for lunch. I opted for this two-tone suede pair for a day walking around the West Village. I wanted something comfortable since I knew I would be spending some time on my feet and the height of this heel was perfect."  -- Kendall, Styled Snapshots
BUY IT
"My second must-have is a taller boot, which can create a more polished feel. I love the height of this ankle wrap boot, as it works well paired with a dress or in this case a classic pair of denim. When investing in an item you want to make sure you will get enough wear out of it, so always take a mental note of your clothing and accessories and pick the color that works best for you!" -- Kendall, Styled Snapshots
BUY IT
"I'm a fan of shoes that can be styled many different ways. While I tend to be a jeans-and- tee kind of girl, I've really been wanting to try out the button-front skirt trend I've been seeing lately. These booties from Johnston & Murphy were the perfect complement to my skirt, and I know they'll look just as cute with my favorite pair of distressed jeans." -- Ally, Allyson in Wonderland
BUY IT

"As for black booties, has there ever been a more perfect-for- fall shoe? Dressy when they need to be and casual when you are -- these heels go with just about everything! I paired them with this pullover sweater and grey frayed denim." --AllyAllyson in Wonderland

BUY IT
"I love legacy brands that are household names, yet continue to update and modernize their collections to stay current. I have vivid memories of Johnston & Murphy specifically as a child. When Paige and I were young, we would stroll the mall with our parents. We'd walk by the Johnston & Murphy store and mom would comment, "I love that store, their shoes are so comfortable" or "oh, Johnston & Murphy, they make really beautiful investment shoes." -- HaileyThe Middle Closet

"This camel cardigan is so versatile and perfect with boots (for a dinner out) or sneakers (for a coffee date). Shoes influence the formality of your outfit more than any other accessory." -- HaileyThe Middle Closet
