    I was wondering what would be a better shoe choice to work for two suits, one a light grey and the other a navy blue. I'm leaning toward a wing tip in either a cognac or mahogany brown or oxblood. Thanks for your suggestions

    I would pick mahogany or oxblood before the cognac, but any of the three should work fine.

    I would probably go for a medium brown. I am not a fan of oxblood and if the brown gets too light it does not work with navy anymore.

    Black should work.

    Black would be a better option; however, if you want brown shoes then a medium brown would work well with both.

    Light brown would be too light for navy, the same could be said about dark brown and light grey although it can work depending on the shade of grey.

    Thanks for the feed back. I found a pair of brown ae strands fora steal. I think the walnut would look good with a light gray suit but they may be too light for a blue suit
