I am upgrading my wardrobe.

I just purchased two new Hickey Freeman suits and need a couple pairs of shoes to go with them. I bought a grey nailhead and a navy pinstripe, both two button single breasted. One is split vent and one is double vent. They are both conservative but very nice. I am a partner in a consulting company and am primarily responsible for biz dev work, and some delivery.

I travel a ton, and would like to wear a dressy slip-on with them so I can get through airport security faster. I have a couple pairs of lace up Ferragamo's and AE's that are conservative shoes, but wanted to do something a little different. Guys, I am 40 and have been wearing lace up cap toes for close to 20 years (Sanfords, etc.) and just want a change.

Couple questions. Can I wear a dressy slip on with these suits? I wear the suits with a crisp starched solid color point collar shirts and no tie (white, blue, bright blue, etc.). I very rarely wear a tie and neither do my clients.

What do you guys think of the following shoes with these suits? Have I fallen of the fashion deep end?

The Costas Oxford looks too much like a slipper. The others should be fine in the context described.
