Hmm. Interesting point. Maybe I should get one of each then, in the immediate sense I suppose tan would make more sense as I really plan to wear them year round. I may invest in a second pair in the future though. My goal was to get a shoe that I could wear daily or almost daily through college, so winter is really when school is in session, but as I said these are my first pair so perhaps I should get the ones I can wear more immediately.
