Gross.  Of all the things perpetuated on this site, this kind of shoe is the one thing that makes the least sense to me.  Why SF rallies behind one of the ugliest shoe designs is a mystery to me.

You'll find a lot of love here for the Allen Edmonds Strand in Walnut for a navy suit. The combination of broguing and color may make them a little less formal than you're comfortable with for a wedding however. The Strand comes in a darker brown as well.

 

not "a little less" formal.  walnut color will clash with navy suit and draw all attention to it.  not classic, not formal.

well I'm trying to be a bit more confident with my style this year for the first time in my life and I feel brown is the right choice for me. 

I seem to make the right choices then doubt myself all the time, lack of confidence in what you're wearing will ruin any style choices!

 

Thanks for the help, my suit is fairly dark navy but tried everything on last night and I really like it with the brown shoes.

 

Was thinking of maybe adding a silver tie bar any thoughts?
