    Is there a rule (or guideline) for this? How does everyone feel about wearing tan / light brown shoes in winter?

    Thanks,
    Dave

    How light are we talking? I could imagine a brown on the lighter side of medium in a pebble grain being a possibility for winter.

    I think that color is fine for winter.

    I've added the photo of said shoes in the event someone reads this thread 5 years from now and the link died.
    These shoes are fine year round. Snow and salt will be your enemy though so take precautions by puchasing a pair of galoshes.

    I personally do not wear or recommend wearing true tan shoes in winter. Welcome to Styleforum.

    Thanks a lot, guys. Man of Lint, what do you mean by true tan shoes? Lighter?

    I was wondering the same thing. I went tan shoe hunting yesterday and 2 stores told me that it would be hard for me to find tan shoes because fall is here and that I should be looking for a darker shoe.

    There are guidelines to it but if you ask me I can careless about them. I dress as I please.

    Country brogues in light colors make fine shoes for autumn... So do boots for winter... :)

    What about this color? too light for fall? I would wear it with mainly dark wash jeans, burgundy chinos, or olive chinos.

    I'f there's a rule against it, I'm quite happy to break it.
