To my eye light brown or medium brown shoes look absolutely wrong with navy trousers. I have always thought so, ever since I was a kid. My dad thought so, too and I am sure that colored my opinion.
Glen O'Brien, GQ's Style Guy, has challenged the rule, but think he is way out on a limb here.
It is my opinion, but there is some authoratative opinion in agreement.
