Is a walnut chukka boot suitable to wear in the winter? I know the color is light, but should I really care?
This. And it would have to be one of those very bright & dry winter's days, with the rest of the outfit also including some light colours.
I don't wear light coloured shoes much at all, though, so take that into account.
It also depends if you are bold and want to create some contrast.
Lighter colored pants for summer complement tan shoes, where are darker pants for winter contrast with tan shoes.
