Hello,

I am thinking of getting these shoes for everyday work wear and wanted to get some advice/opinions.

This is not usually a color of shoe I would get be for some reason I am really starting to like them. What do you think of them and what can I wear them with color wise. I am horrid at colors and thus rarely take chances. This would be my first pair of Alden's.

I wouls say you could wear them with lighter grays, blues, and most shades of brown.

I tend to also think medium grey would work as well.

If you already have black and dark brown for work, this would be a very nice 3rd pair of shoes.

I think you could get away with even darker blues (I wear mid-brown shoes with navy all of the time and it works well). I would stay away from charcoal.
