Haha, I have two pairs of black dress pants that are in a rotation. I wear black shoes with khaki's and the like sometimes as well... but point taken.
Maybe I'll just fix the black chukka's I have where the sole is separating and call it a day for now.
Would you ever wear something like chocolate brown shoes with black pants? Or would cordovan be the only thing that isn't black that is versatile enough to be worn with black.
