Shoes for formal occasions

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Greetings.

 

What shoes are better to where with a navy or grey suit on semi formal occasions such as business presentations, interviews, etc:Allen Edmonds Black Walton or merlot Park Ave? I also have a brown Fifth Street. I don't have a black Park Avenue and wondering if I need it or is what I have sufficient. I presently work in the government sector where the dress code is all over the map. 

 

Thanks

Frankly, either will do well.  If you want to stand out a bit more, go with the merlot Park Avenues.  However, black is a safer route, which is not always a bad way to go if you are dressing purely for utilitarian reasons.

I personally like to wear brown shoes with my grey and blue suits. I think brown shoes match better than black and appear more stylish. So I would suggest to wear your brown fifth street shoes.

Thanks for the advice. 

 

I understand that black shoes are more conservative than other colors. How much better are black Park Avenues than the black Waltons for conservative dress? If the black Waltons are more than sufficient, I'd opt for a different color and style over the black PA. Is the black Walton more than fine for a conservative, black dress shoe?
