What color of shoes go well with dark purple or blue-ish color pants?

Also, are dark brown shoes appropriate for summer?

Last weekend I picked up a pair of purple Etro chinos and personally I think they look really good with dark brown

Dark brown suede monk straps would be ideal.

I've got to wait until my next trip to NYC or London to pick them up.

I guess I am having trouble imagining if, when or where I would wear purple pants! So the color of the shoes just can't get to the front of my mind. But I would have to speculate dark.....say cordovan or black.

Of course, when I was your age I was wearing gaudily painted platform shoes, bell bottom trousers or embroidered jeans, plastic "Nik Nik" shirts, and carried an angel food cake cutter in my back pocket to comb my 'fro on weekends and still wore bespoke HK suits to work during the week. So I suppose that I can see the reason for the different styles.

Purple goes with a lot of colours - dark brown, as suggested, would work well, and so would black and burgundy. You could try white or yellowish shoes, too, edgier, to be sure.
