    Those are quite bright. Not sure I'd wear any of those other than on October 31.

    Navy and racing green are both good shoe colors. Grey isn't nice at all.

    I have a pair of mustard yellow suede boots (from Paul Smith) that I absolutely love and that I've probably had longer than any other pair of shoes I still wear.

    Are they Corthay?

    I've never been a fan of the whole "Artisanal Leather Staining deal" - I'd rather patina my shoes myself over a few decades.

    I remember seeing a thread where someone removed the color from his AE's then redyed them. Seemed like a little bit of excessive work, but the results were pretty decent. I believe he did a navy-ish color and I think its a fun thing that I may try in the future on an older pair of shoes.

    MOL details a good process to use if you want to try this one day

    Yeah, I think navy is great. Not exactly dressy, but I really like dark blue boat shoes. They go with anything.
