    I personally would wear brown shoes. I guess if you're wearing Seven jeans it's not going to matter much.

    looks a little "I had to come here for a conference but only packed my dress shoes" - ish. If you're trying to dress up then ok, beats sneakers. What else you got?

    as far as black leather shoes, thats it. i guess i can order a pair on zappos right now but id rather save the $140 that im going to spend on new shoes and use it on gambling/something else there


    but, if it looks silly i wouldnt mind investing in a pair of black loafers or something

    All of those shoes are horrendous. You'll be in Vegas, go drop in at Neiman Marcus, Salvatore Ferragamo, Gucci, or Tom Ford and get a pair of black loafers.

    You would be throwing your money away on any one of those shoes. If you can't afford to spend at least $300, you aren't going to have any quality options. Tennis shoes are just fine in Vegas though; you can't get into the clubs, but a club is going to cost you $200-500 by the end of the night.

    Those shoes from Zappos are AWFUL. Just wear the ones you already have and save up for some decent shoes down the road. Take a look at some of the WAYWRN threads to see what pops out to you. You can learn a lot by lurking here.

    also any other clothing staples for the clubs down there? i know it depends on personal style. im more of a dark denim/dark v neck kind of guy.

    i have a few nice pairs of jeans, clarks desert boots for the day time, going to order another pair of regular sneakers to walk around in, have some nice button up shirts as well as a blazer

    If the desert boots are in a darker colour, would they not be suitable in place of the other (awful) shoes you have posted?

    Desert boots are generally SF approved.

    At least wear brown shoes with your dark denim...

    Hell, your Clarks look better than those monstrosities.

    the desert boots are the beeswax color...i dont know if they will turn me down at the door with those on though?

    also, they would look silly with a black blazer, am i right?

    No. Get the desert boots. Get a pair of bucks. Get a pair of weejuns. But cheap black leather shoes are a bad idea with jeans.

    First rule: do not wear black dress shoes with jeans.
