Thanks, all, for the wisdom.
@bakes: Yeah, I think maybe I like the navy/red combo better in theory than in practice, especially since I wear blue pants a good portion of the time. I have some loafer socks like that, and I'll see if they work with a pair of cheap, shitty, ill-fitting camp mocs I leave at my office for when the weather sucks and I wear boots to commute (~5 months out of the year, since I live in Minnesota). Also, those shell boots look fantastic with some wear - if only they had something other than D widths for that last.
@grendel & virchow: I love suede, more than is perhaps advisable, but I'm leaning away from it since I want to feel comfortable wearing these shoes even if it's a little wet out in the summer, including wearing them to go sailing.
@frankcopperwood: Thanks for the detailed thoughts. The pics in this thread of your brown pinch pennies are part of what led to me ordering those for my first pair, and your green shell ranger mocs might do the same.
Upon thinking about it further, I think what makes the most sense is to get a pair of camp mocs in either light brown pebble or natural cxl with a camp sole, and a pair of green cxl ranger mocs with the honey RLH sole.
Gah, this thread (and styleforum in general) is terrible for my wallet.
Any thoughts about the dark brown sole vs red brick sole with the lighter brown leather? I'm torn.
