Depends what your definition of casual is. I wear lots of really dark indigo denim with black t shirts or black denim with white t shirts. Outside of a really light suede or sneakers black causal boots work best with that combo.One of the reasons why many people don't like a casual black boot or shoe is that it innately lacks versatility. The color is a formal one, but casual styles clash with dressier attire. It's why black loafers don't look nearly as good with casual attire as do burgundy or brown loafers. Black oxfords look very out of place with chinos, cords and denim. Black casual boots would seem to be out of place with nearly everything, in the view of many. A dressy black boot, on the other hand, will pair nicely with suits and similar attire. I don't think I've ever seen a picture of a casual ensemble with a black shoe/boot that wouldn't look better - and often far better - with footwear of a different color.
However, to each his own. Please, buy what you wish and enjoy wearing what you want and when you want to do so!
