Are the dark grey or light grey Allbirds wool runners more versatile?

I'm debating between buying either these dark grey Allbirds wool runners or the light grey ones, and was hoping to get opinions on which shoe would be more versatile for matching with clothes. I'm thinking the light grey because it's closer to white, but was hoping to get other perspectives. Thank you!

Personally dislike Allbirds and think you should buy a different sneaker. Allbirds are like the shoes you wear with gingham shirts and chinos.

They're comfortable and slightly offbeat. I have varvatos, stan smiths, and cole haan sneakers as well, but they're not as comfortable.

Which Allbirds shoe do you dislike less though?
I think they're functionally the same and will work interchangeably. With blue jeans and khaki chinos, both of those shoes work for the same effect.

yes, they're quirkier than nikes, adidas, puma, reebok, etc
I guess we have different motions of quirky and offbeat. Put it this way, in my opinion, if Allbirds were a musician, they’d be Michael Bolton.

Definitely people who listen to Michael Bolton and REM in their cubicle.

unfair comparison. you've clearly never worn a pair of Allbirds. they're like Taylor Swift for feet.
