Gray Suit, Red Tie. But Oxblood wingtips?

Need help on shoe color to wear with a gray suit, white shirt and bright red tie. I love these oxblood wingtips and belt but fear it may not work well with this ensemble (more specifically, the tie). Should I play it safe w/ black or brown shoes instead of oxblood?

As for sock choice, I wanted to do something fun but don't know how far I liberal I can be.

Would appreciate any feedback.

"Bright red tie" sounds ghastly to me but it may look good in real life. You should just post some pics of this ensemble.

The question comes down to where you work really.
IMO the oxblood shoes would work great with the tie since it would create a coherence
with its hue of red, much more so than black of brown. Especially when you already have a belt to match.

May I ask about the specifications of the suit?
