Rated 5 out of 5 by Achilles Just a great shoe (Black Mahogony)
This is just a really good looking shoe. Superior build quality, a solid feel and really nice leather makes it seem like it'll be part of my wardrobe for many years to come. They are fairly stiff when you first put them on but after a bit, they tend to feel better and better. Seems like a quick break-in period which eventually molds to your step. It's a Ludlow shoe so it's not easy on the wallet but you won't be disappointed with this small investment. After all, a good, quality shoe pays for itself over time. They do run a bit large but not by too much. I went down half a size (was wearing the wrong type of socks when I sized them, had to go back and get a different size and the reps at The Galleria location were really great about this). The Black Mahogany color was an easy choice for me. Dress them down with a quality jean or dress them up with a suit. They also come with a nice J.Crew shoe bag for travel which is a nice touch. Definitely one of the best shoes I now own.

I bought the Cigar Brown longwing bluchers maybe 2 months ago. At first, they were very comfortable and I could initially feel a very slight difference between these and other shoes at a much higher price. After they've been properly broken in (about a week of daily wear), I swear they are even more comfortable than my coveted cordovan shoes by another popular maker. Something happens to the shoe as it settles down and figures your foot-shape and gate out. They really feel like an extension of your foot. And the color they are fading to.. just gorgeous! I like them so much, I also the Black Mahogany longwings and they are now in their second week of training! Suggestion: more colors please! Cognac or Oxblood would be great. Ooh! And a boot and chukka and a buck.. and...

The color of these shoes is amazing but the fit and finish is just SUPERB!!!
It took approx. 3hours walking around the house for them to mold to my feet.
but the real test was I wore them on a night out in NYC that ending at a Jazz lounge. These shoes were comfortable all night long..
Don't hesitate just buy a pair!! Hmmmm what should I buy next from JCREW!!

Best dress shoe I own, hands down. I own an old pair of J.Crew brand dress shoes and they've never been that comfortable to wear for a long time. These new Ludlow shoes are extremely comfortable--I can wear them all day and never think about it. They look even better in person than in the picture. Very reminiscent of Alden shoes but not as slim and long, rather they are a more traditional shoe shape, which I find more flattering. I highly recommend. Will definitely consider getting them in black.

These shoes are awesome. They look beautiful and are extremely comfortable to wear. I have gone 12 hours in a row wearing these shoes and I have felt no discomfort. They look great, many people ask me where I got them. I proudly tell them that I got them at J Crew.
