I'm aware of that thread. I stand by my comment. Have a look thru the principal fit threads, old and new, like Whnay's, WAYWRN, CBD, and thru shoe threads like Shoe Damage, Vass pron, Alden - black shoes appear rarely. While I hesitate to refer to 'SF norms' this is one of the most obvious and enduring.
