Will the Chief Justice really care whether you're wearing brown or black shoes? Provided they're not sneakers and not scuffed I suspect not ...

I note that a couple of posters have suggested the A-E Park Avenue in "dark brown." This shoe is not available in a truly dark brown. I believe the current color is "brown Antibes calf," which is more a medium-brown than a dark brown. The PA used to be offered in brown Eversnow calf, which I thought was an altogether richer, more elegant color. The now-defunct A-E Byron was offered in dark brown and might be more appropriate in this role. (I suspect some may still be available from the outlets and elsewhere).

high polished black with dark blue socks = business
dark brown with maroon socks = dandish
light brown with colored/patterned socks = fopish

All the answers given to you are great....

In your position ,i will go for black ..You're not trying to be seen as a sharp dresser but as reliable individual...
Conformity is the buzzword for you in that situation...

In a more relaxed environment ,burgundy ,blueish patina ,cordovan and so on are the signs of a more experienced dresser...

"Interview" or "Chief Justice" alone would have implied black cap toes, and you used both in the same sentence.

What type experience would "saddle shoes" portray?

And what exactly do you mean by experienced dresser, other than one who dresses himself? lol

Keeping in mind that black and navy together is a major don't, it is obvious that you should go with the brown shoes.
