    If they are worried about what their guests footwear looks like.... well, then they aren't normal, with the exception of someone showing up in blood red spectators.

    But ya, basically what UglyJoe said. The formal brown shoes that guy posted are perfectly fine for just about any wedding that didn't say "Very formal, black attire only!" on the invitation. If the bride and groom care they are crazy and have bigger issues to worry about.

    Ha. True about the bride and groom... but now the wedding planner, bride's mother, and Maid of Honor might be people to avoid in this situation...

    I wear walnut colored shoes with a similar shade of navy on a regular basis. I wouldn't wear them to court, but for most days it's a great looking combo, imho.

    I have a walnut colored belt that matches almost perfectly.

    I wear this belt (in Burnished Tan) with my Walnut colored AEs and it matches really well.

    Some love it; some don't like it. I fall into the "don't like it" camp. Tried it one day and just felt it was too "flashy" for me. Try it out one day and see what you think.

    received the BB strand walnut 9D today, LOL!
    they look good. the insole and outsole are bit different from AE strand. seems that there is a pad on top of the insole and the outsole is partly ruber as you can see in the following pictures. rubber is ideal for me cos my job involves lots of walk.
    the only regret is that you cann't find any AE logo trace on BB strand.

    3: no name italian shoes, vero cuoio sole, picked them up in Switzerland
