AE shoes in Walnut with Navy Suits? - Page 3

post #31 of 61
Navy with black shoes is uncontroversial. I prefer #8 (burgundy) though.

Black shoes are not looked highly upon in this forum though for conservative business dress I often see black as the only pairing with a navy suit.

I just got the Fairhavens...the older version of the McAllister...in what I think is walnut. They are definitely darker in person, look like yours. I totally want to pair mine with my navy suit! Great look!

To the OP:

WHY NOT?

I would unhesitatingly wear walnut A-Es with a navy suit. I don't own any walnut A-Es, but I have worn the similar chili and chestnut colored shoes with navy suits and slacks with some frequency. I would deem this combination too sporty for a funeral, but otherwise fine. Very Italian, I'm told.

These look great with navy and I'm sure they'll look great with a med grey as well, no worries

Thanks for all the suggestions. I went ahead and grabbed a pair of the AE Strands in walnut for $190. At that price, why not?

Guys, help me out in this predicament, I am considering between two pairs of shoes, the AE Strand in walnut at $200 or a pair of Handgrades C&J Selbourne Chestnut antique calf for $450. Which would be a better buy keeping in mind the following attributes: value, design and sleekness as well versatility of use.

Actual pictures of either pairs would be very much appreciated.

Good question as I'm debating the same thing at the moment - buying the cheaper AEs or saving up to buy the better C&Js.

Walnut shoe looks fine with navy IMO. But I wouldn't do it unless it paired with braces or side tab adjusters on the trousers -- a light colored belt on a navy suit breaks up the wearer's midsection and looks way off to my eye.

You will be praised at your law firm for the color combo!
