I came across a beautiful pair of oxford shoes in blue. I really liked them but I was wondering, how do you combine just a shoes with any wardrobe?
other than gray, how on earth do you wear this shoe? Thank you.

You can wear with gray and probably rock it with navy as well (someone on AE thread mentioned it I think). Could work with a lighter tan or stone but it would be a lot of contrast (but very spring/summer).

Although I wear odd trousers and jackets more than suits, I wear blue dress and casual shoes often, though perhaps slightly more navy than these. I consider dark blue/navy to be an extremely versatile shoe, and wear it with medium grey, charcoal, dark brown, olive, darker khaki, green, maroon. Really, the only thing I avoid are lighters colors (unless it is very casual, otherwise too much contrast, as @papado suggested), navy and black.

Blue is great, but I prefer in boots, especially with denim.

Blue shoes look great with (dark) brown pants. Depending on the tone it can work ok with blue pants as well.

Why? Why not?

I have a couple pairs of blue (slightly more toward navy) shoes, in calf and in suede. As stated, they go well with grey, with navy, with air force blue, and also with cream. It's a nice change of pace. Plus, if you have a suede pair, you get to sing Elvis all day long!
