Navy Suit Shoe Color Question...

Hey,

I know navy suits work well with anything from black shoes, dark brown shoes to lighter, tan shoes. However, I found a pair of shoes that are slightly harder to categorize and was wondering how you think they would go with a navy suit! They may be too light a shade of brown...?

Here is the suit...



And here are the shoes...




Hope you can give some advice! Thanks!

seven threads with the same stuff in them.

Those would't go with a suit at all; if you want to wear brown suede with a suit it should be with a thicker, real sole, less contrast stitching, less decorative stitching, etc. It's a sporty shoe—its between sneaker and real shoe.

Those shoes are much too casual for that suit.
