Dark brown (I'm guessing Aidric meant tan when he said pale brown) is the best choice, maybe burgundy depending on the shades.

I don't agree that black looks ridiculous. Safe maybe but not ridiculous.

Yes, I was referring specifically to tan shoes.

Really don't agree than brown shoes/navy suit is a bad combo.

Not sure that's being said really - Awec is arguing that black & navy shouldn't be worn together which is something I'd also stand behind - looks awful.

Navy suit, brown shoes combo is fine, as awec said, what other colour shoes would you wear under navy

The worst offenders are the wearers of pale brown shoes with a dark navy suit.
.

I think it's a perfectly fine look.

I was just talking about the suit/shoe combo. Don't like the tie much although don't mind the navy suit/red tie look it is way too wide. Also don't like the rolled up pant legs.

The suit colour and shoes go fine though.

Is that you Keane? Very sharp.

I should have been more specific in my post. Dark brown can work well when paired with a navy suit and especially a royal blue shirt. Tan shoes however are hideous with same and completely distract.

Tan shoes are hideous, full stop. IMHO

Also, i've no issue with black shoes with a navy suit. None whatsoever. I do it quite often.
Here's a pic of me i took earlier:




However, never with navy jeans!

You can't wear black shoes with a navy suit. Brown shoes with a navy suit is the most fashionable combo around at the minute.

Oh you could wear two different shoes if you wanted.

In my opinion brown shoes with a navy suit looks better than a similarly dark colour that doesn't match.
