I like black shoes that are clean and well polished. My favorite is the RL/EG Grant's in black. A bit more sleek than any Alden. I think black shoes get a bad rap on SF.

All personal preference but don't like the look of black shoes. I have one pair of AE fifth aves when I must wear them. My go to with charcoal is color 8 and sometimes dark brown. Anybody else not have black shoes in their rotation? 

Yes - numerous pairs, shell and calf. For professional business dress, color 8 and black are business staples for many.

The Trubalance last works well with my flat feet!

Congrats! Good to hear you are happy and the TB is a very friendly last.

No black shoes for me, I think I am up to like 25 pairs too. The Walter boot was the first thing in black I have tried to purchase.

Same here. I have about 15 pairs, and none of them are black. I feel like there's always a color that will work better with an outfit than black.

I don't own a black pair either, but if I were to own one, it would probably be the J. Crew cadet cordovan bluchers. They've been sold out in my size for a while though. I'm only 8 pairs in with 2 more on pre-order though.

post #114761 of 122416

On the topic of black shoes: this has been discussed before but I wonder how many people would actually notice a difference,and then be offended if I wore a pair of the 9015s to a job interview,funeral, etc. I still wear black just to technically be "correct"

 

I've thought about that a lot because

1) I love color 8

2) As I said earlier, my only black shoes are AE 5th Avenues and I'm not a big fan(just got them for a good price) 

post #114762 of 122416
Only black shoes I have are the cadets from crew, strictly for funerals etc.

I do have the rydon boot on order from EP

That's the only black pair of shoes or boots that I own, and even those are rarely reach out for.  Black just always seems more formal to me, and I dress pretty casual for the most part.  I think I wore them once to a wedding and once to work.  I have a stable of 24 at the moment so it's a royal rumble already getting shoes in the rotation

post #114764 of 122416
I own one dressy black shoe currently (StC) but I would definitely add more at some point. Have a captoe so maybe a wingtip, possibly a wholecut, perforated captoe, etc.

Also have a black calf Viberg boot and I'm on the epaulet black shell boot pre-order. And again, I would potentially add more here but it's less of a priority considering how great the Viberg and Alden boots should be.

I have black shell ptbs.
That's my only black pair.
Keepers for sure.
