Tan brogues: need 3 chino colors

I just purchased these tan, textured brogues, and I'm looking for three of these chinos to pair with them for business casual. Which colors should I absolutely avoid? And are there any obvious picks?

I'm leaning towards Navy Blue, Airforce Khaki, and Military Olive Green to give me a few unique shades.

I'm also considering Skyline Gray, but it actually has a slight purplish tint to it in-store, so not sure. Charcoal is my go-to, but not sure this dark of a color would go with tan shoes? I do like the modern look of navy blue with tan shoes, but not sure charcoal is in that same category?

Thoughts?

Have you though of non-navy blues? Maybe royal blue or lapis or azure.

Burgundy, greys, blues, greens, tans, copper, certain browns, etc.

I mix snuff suede (lighter than your pair which shouldn't be called tan) with darker greys; if you're going for business casual you don't have to stick to shoes being darker than pants.

I do like the royal blue with tan look, but I really like the Chinos I linked (fit and comfort) and they don't have royal blue. They did have a "blueberry" but it looks to be discontinued.

Yeah, the shoes are sort of hard to describe. They have a completely different look (sometimes look very dark and other times very light) in different lighting which throws me off (the pictures on the website make them look much darker than what they really are).

Those shoes really aren’t tan. See London Tan if you want to see what tan more is. It’s often almost yellow. These shoes are almost a medium brown. To answer the question, though, I think they can go with almost anything. It’s basically the most versatile possible color. I’d say the most optimal would be darker blues and grays.
