    What are your thoughts of Santoni Split Toe fatte a manos:
    With a Navy Suit?
    Grey Suit?
    *I've also included a pic to see how they sit to more traditional styles that go with Suits.

    I saw the exact same shoe on sale this morning for $250. I had to pass, not my size.

    To me, yes. But, I would suggest it depends on the suit and accessories. If one is doing a sack suit and button-down collar shirt, no. If one is doing a more tailored look and one is not dressing for court, a client meeting, or a more formal occasion, I think it would be fun. I also think the shoes would work nicely with a textured fabric.

    I think both blue and grey would work. However, not appropriate if you want to blend in. I think they are more suited to "dress to impress", they would look awesome with blue pinstripe suit.

    They are showy, but could definitely pass muster. You seem to have a more flamboyant style of dress - I think that you could pull them off.

    Would I do it with a $1 million contract on the line? No.

    Would I wear them to the office on a day like today when I am working at the desk and have no client meetings? Absolutely.

    Those shoes would do better with navy pinstripe than solid navy, yes.

    With plain navy, a bold tie would help greatly.
