    my engagement party is coming up, i have started my search for a nice pair of brown shoes but there a many different shades, what do you guys think, should i go with a nice dark brown or should i do something that is a lighter shade, i personally like the lighter shades, but will i get more use out of a traditional brown shoe, any input would be great !

    Given the wealth of context you've provided us with, I'm going to just go ahead and assume you are likely a wealthy playboy with a penchant for spear fishing in the south pacific and a personal jet. I'd suggest harpooning a stingray and seeing if edward green can do an MTO galway boot with the hides. They will likely oblige for the right price.

    (non-sarcastic reply- maybe a bit of context regarding what else you are wearing, the price range, and the venue/ where else you'd be wearing them would help us guide you in the right direction)

    Wait, you smell that?
    

    "Formal" event requires black shoes. The shoes you posted are not appropriate. They are bluchers.

    I like the "bourbon" shade of Allen Edmonds. Take a look at them.
