Need help finding outfits from my small wardrobe with these two shoes

Can someone please help me style these two shoes:

Gray Greats Royale with white sole

https://www.greats.com/products/the-royale-ash-grey

Black Greats Royale with white sole


I have the hardest time finding outfits to wear either of these with. I want to wear them to work in a business casual environment (more casual than business tbh) and I can’t figure out what color combo chinos and polo work with each of them. Any advice would be appreciated. Even just one outfit for each so I can give my white shoes a break. Lol

I have these colors for each:

Polo: Black, Navy, Light Grey, Light Blue, Forest Green, Maroon (all made by Kent Wang, if you need to see the colors with your eyes)

Chino: British Khaki, Khaki, Light Khaki/Cream, Olive, Navy, Black, Medium Grey, Light Grey/Silver

I really really appreciate any idea for combos. I have a few pairs of white shoes, and I know they go with almost anything. I just want to mix shoes up sometimes. I’m trying to learn more about the fundamentals of fashion (mostly putting colors/patterns/textures together in an outfit). It’s harder than I thought. Haha

Black or gray shoes should work with almost any color chino. Pair some chinos and polos and then go with which color - black or gray - you like best.

Black leather sneakers don't really work with chinos in a wearable color. Black cotton pants, not really wearable except as part of a uniform.
