I think the Dover would be more versatile. But I really like the snuff semi-brogue.

@mdubs, you've not been watching the World Cup, then?

Snuff Dover any day of the week and twice on Sundays.  In general, derbys over oxfords for versatility.

I feel like I need another derby to wear primarily with navy. I have a #8 LWB, but I also have #8 straight tip and NST boots. Should I stick with burgundy or should I get black to have something a little different? I was thinking maybe a black shell NST on Aberdeen. Or maybe the same shoe in #8.

No, I really haven't seen any World Cup. I only saw the US vs. Portugal game so far. I had too much going on today to be "out at a meeting" for the game today. Some of my team took an early lunch today, strangely enough.

What do you have in Black Shell my friend? I think you just have a CT Boot, if so, I may go with the Black. I personally love Ravello and Navy.

I don't have any black shell at the moment. I actually sold the black CT boots. I just didn't get the use out of them. I think the cap toe made them look too formal for my use. Don't know if I'll get any more use out of a derby shoe or not... I guess I'm just a bit bored with #8.

I also love Ravello w/ navy, and of course Color 8 looks stellar.   Not a huge fan of black w/ navy, though it doesn't offend me.  I prefer to wear black only when I wear black clothes.  And sometimes w/ gray, though I prefer browns/burgundies over blacks there as well.

 

Here are the derbys I love to wear w/ navy:

LWBs in 8, Ravello, Cigar

PTBs in 8 and Ravello

NSTs in 8 and Ravello

EG Dovers in Dark Oak and Gold Delapre

EG Wells in Dark Oak

@tifosi - do you WANT a black shoe or just think you SHOULD HAVE one?  Because if it is the former, don't do it.  I think the #8 NST on Aberdeen is beautiful and I have been looking at it.  Also would consider (as I know you and I both have) the alpine grain NST on the Plaza last and commando from J Gilbert - though a bit steep.  And the #8 on Plaza NST is a nice option too.

Ha! An NST may be a good alternative. I really like brogues, so I would personally go for something more hole punched myself. :-)

it's orthopedic

^^ I guess I was just thinking of something else to wear with navy. So I guess I was just thinking burgundy or black. I don't wear brown with navy, but I might try Ravello.

Hmmmm. Dark Oak, huh? Not something I would normally do...but...

Why no navy with brown?  I don't get it!
