I find it very easy to darken shoes, especially those in the red/burgundy color family. I would have kept them and polished them with black and burgundy until I had the color I wanted.
I really wanted a pair of the Darwin slip-ons in tan (I already have a pair in dark brown analogous to EG's dark oak and love them), but they're out of my size. FWIW, the McCallum shell cordovan chukka boots are great.

Management forgot to tell the players (who now all fear for their jobs, post-Trent Richardson).

I think burgundy or light blue (really, any blue that provides significant contrast to whatever shade of navy your jacket may be) are more interesting and just as versatile, in the sense that they can be worn with a navy, charcoal, or gray suit. In contrast to black ties, I find it surprising how often I wear my navy blazer, so I disagree with the blazer/black tie analogy (I like my blazer because it's custom and a terrific fit. ...
I've owned brown calfskin Tetburys for years and they're my go-to dress casual rain boots. I like them so much that I just bought a pair of black calfskin, even though I would really prefer a corodovan shade of chukka boot. I would be interested in something in the red or burgundy family, something like Carmina's ruby (if C&J has something similar).
