You can wear those to the office. I am confused as to why you posted them while on your feet. Please tell me that you dont wear them with white socks and light jeans! Please!

Yes. I don't know what you do or where you work, but I can tell you that the vast majority of hotshots in DC wear significantly worse footwear on a regular basis and nobody seems to mind.

don't worry, I dont pair them with white socks (tan, dress socks depicted above) and light denim. dark denim with 7.75" max. leg opening is what i'll be using.

I wouldn't wear them with jeans, but that's just me. Well, very, very dark jeans may be. But with slacks? Hell yeah. I've worn monkstraps with suits before, even.
