Congrats mate! Any idea what you're going to buy as your celebratory first paycheck purchase?
As for your Strands, dark brown will of course be more versatile and useful in more situations. But the walnut is my favourite colour. Not sure if you remember from the meet up, but my Van Ness were in Chili, which is quite similar to my walnut Fifth Avenues when I put them side by side.
If you wanted to take a look at the walnut Fifth Aves, let me know.
As for trying them on, I'm not sure what last the Strands are on (5, I believe?). I don't believe Rosen has any shoes in stock in the 5 last, but I was at Eddie's on 104 today and they have the Players (I almost couldn't resist the blue suede ones). Try those on, as they are on the #5 last. They are however a derby, so an oxford would fit a little snugger on the vamp.
