Beautiful shoes, what to wear with them?

I was given these shoes that I find absolutely stunning. I have never owned anything like them and am not quite sure what I'd wear them with.

This is my post on these boards - if this isn't the right place then please let me know where is.

Not to everyone's taste, but I dig 'em.

As for what to wear, suits or wool slacks, obviously, but those could also be interesting with jeans or nice slim chinos.

BTW, who are they made by? Italian, rather obviously, but do you have more details then that?

Jeans at best. They're a tad too armadillo for a suit, imo.

They remind me of a silkworm larva I once ate...

Thanks for the feedback all. I think they're great, if a little "unique". Not to everyone's taste but certainly different. Cheers.

I would wear them with jeans a leather belt that matches the color of the shoes and a nice shirt (maybe white linnen)

looks like they need about a week in the good ol' shoe trees.
